Civil Duty – Civil Duty
Beau Wanzer and Shawn O’Sullivan pair up to deliver distilled techno fury on Anthony Parasole's label The Corner. Driving grooves with a sinister edge. Shout out to Anthony for reppin' tough shit as usual.
Sleeparchive – Senza Titolo EP
Sleeparchive embodies my visions of techno flawlessly. Like his other tunes, this is an exercise in restraint yielding an otherworldly sense of futurism. Cold, bleak, and barren. What more could you ask for?
In Aeternam Vale – Jealous God 05
Laurent Prot is a genius. He takes minimal arrangements and constructs atmospheric grooves (like this) that you can just get totally lost in. His tracks are total mindfucks to crowds that get it. Can't wait to play this one out.
Eduardo De La Calle – The Sequoia Symposium
Eduardo steps up to bat with Boddika's imprint. Loving the insistence of the groove on this. He is a master of simplicity, tending to tastefully limit himself to a few key elements but to great effect. Not only are his tunes transcendental but also incredibly effective on the dance floor.
Brendon Moeller – BASH006
Brendon serves up dub techno like no other. Needless to say I fuck with this dude hard. His meticulous attention to atmospheric detail never fails to impress me and this tune is no exception. The menacing synth pattern kinda makes me want to go out and rob someone in a seedy alley in Chinatown in the future.
Sigha – Techno Derivatives
Holy shit. This entire release is just pure post-apocalyptic futurism at its finest. Mind-numbingly hypnotic synths pulsate in waves washing over. It makes me feel like I am being chased by alien bounty hunters on a distant planet. Fucking amazing man.
Sterac – Different Strokes
Steve Rachmad is a legend. I'll never tire of proper drum machine work outs and this track is just that.
Woo York – Blade Runner (Inc Zadig Remix)
Well, with a title like Blade Runner, you HAVE to go hard with the track and Woo York sure lived up to my expectations. Props for making some heat.
