MTT290 Spectrogram

Electro & techno in the 120s. Nothing new here I'm afraid, I think the most recent track is from last year, but good tunes nonetheless. (Some classics, some records I play a lot, and so on).

The most recent piece here is #9 Lemon Mishap by London Modular Alliance from their Cracked Dice EP released on CPU Records last year. Lemon Mishap is a good modern example of that weird bouncy, cold, squeaky electro that I was going for in the middle of this mix. (And the rest of that EP is excellent too, I particularly like the more round Chemical Peel).

Track #13 The Pace by Robert Hood is another one of my favorites. Brilliantly reduced techno, machines marching in lockstep. I often think of The Pace as defining what the word "techno" means. (That's an oversimplification of a rich genre, of course, but there it is). It's worth listening to the track in full as there's a second section to it that I (somewhat clumsily) faded out of. And the b-side of The Pace is a famous track in its own right, Wandering Endlessly, which I'm sure I'll play here someday.

I'm coming up on time so that'll have to do it for notes today. If you hear something you like then please check the relevant links above & consider supporting the artists with a purchase or two. I'll be back next week at my regular time with another mix, something slower, not sure what yet, will have to think on it.
