The most recent track here is #10 Nasty Bits by Illektrolab from the 2019 Paranoid Android EP on Brokntoys. Illektrolab has a new EP, Temporal Interference, due to be released on Brokntoys at the end of this month. It seems good to me from the preview tracks, certainly worth a listen if you like Nasty Bits and their style in general.

Three tracks from Monotone feature in this mix: #6 Sedona by Dynamix II, #11 Basstown by Hydraulix, and #15 Dark Mind by Exzakt. All are played from recordings of the vinyl releases on Monotone (the version of Sedona is the 2006 reissue). I'm a big fan of mid-2000s Florida electro (a topic I've written about before), particularly Exceleration Records and Monotone. I haven't kept up with the new releases from Monotone, though, unfortunately.

I wasn't able to find the Electronic Counter Measures EP for sale online anymore (maybe Amazon has it?) but Synthetix has a bunch of other great albums available at his bandcamp page. The latest there, Decompiler, seems pretty good. Bass-heavy & serious.

That's it from me this week. If you hear a track you like please consider supporting the artist by picking up an EP or album at the relevant tracklist link above. I'll be back next week with more bass, albeit slower this time.
