MTT145 Spectrogram

Breaks, electro, an odd piece of late '90s techno/electro. Coloring outside the lines a little.

This show (like most of MTT Year 3) is no longer available for download here. Get in touch with me at the email address listed at the top of this page if you want a copy of it.

Track three Odyssey by Point Guard is from the excellent PS001.2, the second release on Australia's Pure Space label. Like their first release it's very original, fun, bright stuff. And it just came out a week or two ago, so snap it up now.

Ivna Ji's Laax EP is the other recent purchase featured in this mix. It came out on Етикета 4 (AKA Label 4?) last year. The whole EP is reminiscent of Ivna Ji's track Oscillating Universe on Brokntoys bt17 The Glowing. Which is to say that it's terrific space electro. I'll definitely be playing more from that EP in the coming weeks.

Pressure by Raw Stevens is the odd '90s piece I mentioned earlier. Released on Squat Records in either 1997 or 1998, the sound of it reminds me of the techno of its era more than the electro. It's a cool, weird record in any case. The third track (B2) is a fast 140 BPM bass-y detroit-y tune called "Type 4748/Ab1", and is my favorite of the three.

There's lots more going on, of course. BFX's smooth 2000s breaks track Whisper, Sigma Algebra's Resh from the third Elektrodos compilation, the caustic acid of JGarrett (AKA Xyn)'s Give Us This Day. But I'm all talked out. Next week will be something slower, probably more mellow. After that - either the third or fourth week this month, I'm not sure - will be the annual demoscene show. Check back for those.
