Deconstructing Techno / Techniques, Textures, and Instruments

Dear Fellow Techno Enthusiasts,

First off I am older and haven't created any serious compositions since the 90's except for recent remastering work. I am a fan of the classic 80's-90's Happy Techno Genre and need your help with techniques and sound using a modern DAW. For reference, I am working on a MacBook Pro using Logic Studio and a Yamaha MIDI keyboard and just graduated from Garage Band

Here is a short song that captures the essence of the sound that I enjoy.
">

I broke this song down by time marker. If you could give it a listen and tell me the technique/instrument used to product the sound texture, I would appreciate it.

00:00-00:23 Happy Piano Hook Lead
00:23-00:40 Stutter Synth, it sounds arpeggiated?
00:42-00:56 Bass that is slightly offbeat, how do you do that? Is that chained to the kick drum?
00:56 Harmonica Sound
01:40-01:50 - Nice sound, automation with LFO?

I only have a little bit of free time each and spend a lot of time searching the Internet for Techno Tutorials and even have a Lynda account. If you know of a good tutorial source for Logic Pro or Happy Techno please share.

One other technique I am looking for uncover is how to make drum beats that get exponentially faster as you get to the end of theme/section.

Thank you all and I will be checking back hourly for discussion
-PR
