hi i wouldnt include  techno in there thats whole diferent game, but lounge,electrojazz,downtempo,drum&bass backtracks can sound much better then sort tracks trying to imitate real drums when using for life performance,if you program it yourself they can sound more original and interesting then a keyboard preset beats .
i usualy use reason to program drums,bass and some pads ,once you get a hand on it it is real quick job .they fit really nice to many jazz standards and drum&bass beats go really together with bossa songs,its fun programming it and it can be very creative and original interpretation of standards ,there are tricks you can do with reason
that you actualy can play in real time trigerring sound loops on the go
by ,,reason´´ i ment the sofware programm reason
ableton live is the goto for that sort of stuff.  works great... uh, "live".  lots of features with live performance in mind.
