Merry Techno Xmas

technoXmas

 

No, it’s not December yet, but this is a mix for you to use/enjoy this entire holiday season. Maybe you want some killer house & techno to drowned out Aunt Mildred and her story about cats you’ve heard a hundred times; maybe you’re romping around Best Buy, looking for that special gift for yourself or maybe you’re driving this holiday season and need something like a fine cognac for your ears as you do… look no further. Remember, this is the season of giving, so share with a friend!

Some of My Vinyl Favs

I was ripping a bunch of my old vinyl to MP3 and decided to make a mix of all vinyl. It’s impromptu, so there’s some flubs, some stuff I don’t think went the best together and it’s a diverse mix. But who gives a shit about all that. If you’ve been around, you know these tunes, you love them like I do and wouldn’t mind having another mix with them in it.

Promo Mix: Fall 2012

I haven’t had a lot of time for mixes lately, but here’s one that you should enjoy. Has some dubstep/broken beat (the good stuff) to start and end, but then ‘big room’ techno to fill the rest of the time.

This is Techno (Mix)

I was going through my collection the other day and came across all sorts of techno classics and gems that… well… people just don’t make much music like this anymore. Here’s a selection of 31 of my fav techno tunes from the 90s and 00s that keep true to that Swedish/Tribal/drum techno sound that we all know and love. Lost of distortion, shitty pressings and terrible record quality; if you remember hearing this stuff at a party, it should take you back.

**NSFW** “Aural Exciter” has some lyrics you probably wouldn’t want played at your desk at work. 😉
