Techno Animal Versus Reality is a remix album by the Illbient band Techno Animal, released on March 30, 1998 through City Slang.

Illbient is a genre of electronic music. The term was allegedly coined by DJ Olive to describe the music being produced by a community of artists based in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York in 1994. The word "Illbient" combines the hip hop slang term "ill" and "ambient".

Techno Animal is an industrial hip hop duo formed in 1990 in London, England by British composers and musicians Justin Broadrick and Kevin Martin. The name addresses the concept of a technological animal and is not a direct reference to the techno genre.
