So the new tracks here are #3 Time To Think by Dark Vektor and #12 Nexus by Deemphasis both from the 11:11 Fundamental Compilation on FBI, #5 Click Click Drone (Metal Beat Mix) by Scape One from the album Click Click Drone, and #13 Pott Groove by Chaos Milieu on Warning Berlin. The acid-breaks-electro-trance of Pott Groove is particularly interesting and cool, I think.

FBI's 11:11 Fundamental Compilation is high on my list of releases this year so far, quality tracks from the likes of Dark Vektor, Exzakt, Mandroid (whose Deafening Silence sounds suspiciously like a certain movie's end titles theme), Sbassship, and more. I've been playing FBI records for a long time so I'm really happy to see the release of 11:11. Check this one out for sure.

A minor correction: I mentioned while reading the tracklist aloud that Clone Theory is an alias for Heuristic Audio. That's not exactly correct. Discogs tells me that Clone Theory is Alan C. Hill and Dave Froud; Dave Froud is Heuristic Audio. Alan Hill appears to have been a member of a number of groups and used a number of aliases none of which I'm familiar with aside from Clone Theory, sadly. (And it's funny, I told myself not to make this mistake the last time I played Electrollenium. Go figure.)

That's the show this week. More 5- and 6-minute pieces than usual, but it felt right to let some of these breathe. I'll be back next week Thursday with another mix, something slower, as usual.
