The Technodrome 08: Curated By Human Movement

This week’s edition of The Technodrome is a special one. For the first time in its short history, we have a special guest presenter: Australia’s Human Movement. You may not have heard of the up-and-coming duo, but Blake Gilray and Edward Macdonald have made waves in all the right places with their 2014 bomb, the aptly named Shake, not to mention a mind-melting mix for Skrillex’ Nest. Now, they bring us their favorite new techno music, including cuts from Carl Craig, Julian Jeweil, and more. They also gave us some words as to why they picked the tracks they did. You ready to take the red pill and see how far the rabbit hole goes?


Oliver Huntemann – Schatten (Original Mix) [Ideal Audio]

This song may have been what made us move more towards techno rather than house music. The bassline, which is almost like a psychedelic-sounding bass guitar, sits so nicely over the progression. The final build-up is what really sold it for us though–the whole idea of “less is more” coming into place by stripping most of the elements away, and bringing all back together in the final drop. Amazing track.

PURCHASE


Green Velvet – Destination Unknown (Carl Craig’s C2 Detroit-Chicago Unity Dub) [Relief]

This may be the best remix we’ve heard so far; it’s such a simple idea but done so well. Who would’ve thought a laser-sounding synth hitting on a snare would sound so good? This track leaves you with goosebumps (the good kind).

PURCHASE


A. Balter – You’re A Fish (Original Mix) [Digital Structures]

We were a bit hesitant to give this one out at first. This track is our hidden gem that no one really knows, it seems like–except for the DJ we got it off playing after us at the club that night (thanks, legend). Like the Carl Craig remix of Destination Unknown, this song has you holding out until the final drop, with chords constantly teasing yet still enticing you throughout the track. When it all come together at the end, it’s definitely worth it.

PURCHASE


WHYT NOYZ – Shift (Original Mix) [SCI+TEC]

First time hearing this track out everyone in the club had the same idea. I remember seeing about 30 people around me pull out their phone and Shazam this track, and with good reason, too. Everything in this track works–from the rolling sub and a quirky melody almost going up and down the harmonic minor scale that’s found in a lot of Middle Eastern music. We’re always finding ourselves playing this one out.

PURCHASE


Julian Jeweil – Rumble (Original Mix) [Minus]

Rumble is definitely an appropriate name for this track. A real donker that keeps you grooving throughout it. With an awesome rolling bassline driving the song and interesting percussion coming in and out of the track, you become almost mesmerized by the song and don’t really want the track to finish.

Jay Lumen Punches Into The ‘Stratosphere’

Hungarian techno king Jay Lumen is arguably one of the genre’s finest products, bubbling away firmly in underground territory, yet putting his head just high enough above the parapet that he is noticed by the mainstream. As a result, he occupies a rare position that many a DJ must secretly be jealous of, a point that is reinforced by his mastery in the studio–a skill that is beautifully illustrated in his latest EP Stratosphere.

Firmly setting the tone is the title track, a clever mix of booming techno suited for a packed and sweaty club, set off by some simple little melodies that hint at Lumen’s roots in tech house. It makes for an atmospheric opener, one that conjures images of late nights and early mornings in Ibiza, an environment Stratosphere should thrive in. On the flip-side, Lumen is right back into the dark and dirty side of techno with Pattern One. Simple, raw, and unrelenting, this is more reminiscent of cold Berlin nights than balmy Balearic evenings. Whatever the setting, the whole EP is another solid showing from Jay, and should cement his reputation as one of the hottest underground producers of the moment.

Stratosphere is out now on Octopus Records, so grab your copy here.

[Festival Review] Four Days In The Life of a Ninja at Movement Music Festival

Detroit’s fabled Movement Electronic Music Festival (formerly DEMF) was a visceral experience to say the least. From the sternum throttling bass kicks of the world’s loudest soundsystems designed exactly for all facets of dance music, the artificial crunch of plastic bottles and beer cans condensing beneath our feet in a warehouse basement at 5:00 a.m., to the general amounts of love from nearly every corner of the industry; we had an engaging and wonderful time. And with new owners Paxahau doing most everything in their ability to ensure a great Memorial Day Weekend, for the most part, the shows went off without a hitch.

Our team arrived late Friday night, and with still at least a couple of hours left in the evening to party before Movement’s official kick off the following afternoon, we headed to Detroit’s gritty warehouse district for an incredibly deep and storied lineup featuring both Moodyman and Theo Parrish taking us all to the Church of House through a vinyl only, eclectic set fusing neo-jazz, classic disco and plenty of contemporary house and techno without well… too much mixing really. It was certainly a throwback night in every sense, even an ode to Paradise Garage maestro Larry Levan style mixing. It was great to get back to our roots, stop being so damn critical, just enjoy a couple of dance music legends and set the stage for our weekend.

Saturday Songs of the Day

Bright and early Saturday morning (at the crack of 2:00 p.m.!), we’d arrived at Detroit’s fabled Hart Plaza for six stages and three days of the best underground (and very overground) dance music a multitude of genres had to offer. Of course, not without a few first day snafus however. Apparently, a very large ticketing malfunction within Paxahau’s internal system caused many a headache for loads of our friends. Attendees who had gone the pre-sale route and already had their weekend bracelets in hand had nearly three hours less wait time than those buying at the door. Obviously not the start you’d want to a music festival, and with Paxahau promising to be much more staffed next year, we can only hope it was the last time something like that would happen. Luckily for us, media check-in was about as painless an experience we’ve encountered through our many years of festival coverage, and we were inside within 2 minutes, taking in all of London based House producer Midland’s raucously tasteful set at our friends with Beatport’s waterfront stage.

midland

After a solid hour warmup, Bulgarian techno wiz Kink followed suit with a live set which, despite its overall Berlin-dark-techno-tone, fit perfectly against a sunny and warm day in Detroit. The proverbial bar was set pretty damn high after our first two sets, and unfortunately for us, Recondite and what would be a finely tuned low-end by the end of the weekend, were clashing heavily with the sound system encased within Movement’s Main stage. The next few hours saw us bounce from THUMP’s ‘Made in Detroit’ stage and the Red Bull Music Academy Stage, consuming performances from the likes of House pioneer Keri Chandler, Gaiser, and a hip-hop interlude from Method Man performing almost exclusively Wu-Tang cuts, before finishing the first day of Movement with one of dance music’s true stars of the moment, Dixon. With the largest spot in terms of time on the entire Movement bill, Dizon delivered what we’d been hoping for, yet so much more. Dixon truly displayed the modern craft of mixing, taking his listeners on a complete journey and satisfying our need for booming dance music to cap things off. But of course in the Motor City, that wouldn’t be the end of the night, as it was off to a couple more parties.

First we met our friends behind some of the hottest singles in all of House music for INSVNE’s afterparty featuring Sleazy Deep & Sleazy G label boss Rob Made, an interview with our newest BFF’s Thee Cool Cats and opening work from a slew of rising sons including Need & Necessity, Ross Regs, Heartlybeats, Futurpoets and more. By then, it was high time to get over to what affectionately became known as the ‘Techno Dungeon’ by our friends over the week (City Club technically, but we like our christening a bit more) to take in the almighty Innervisions afterparty ‘Motor City Madness’. City Club played host to many of the weekend’s most sought after parties in addition to Movement and just a few hours losing oneself inside its sweltering walls let us know why. Basically somewhere between an abandoned venue and a squat, the ‘Techno Dungeon’ certainly earned its reputation on Night One. With at least 1,000+ people crammed into City Club, there was a musty, humid and ultimately inhuman quality to the air we breathed every night. Indoor cigarette smoke permeated most every room and when it was coupled with the frenetic body heat being expended; we hadn’t felt a party like that since our teenage rave days. And what a glorious return it was; as well as a sign of things to come for the rest of the weekend. Henrik Schwarz played a brilliantly led set of 4:00 a.m. house and techno upstairs in City Club while Dixon put forth yet another three hours of incredible dancefloor curation in the basement… which also featured a makeshift bathroom a couple of partygoers managed to break into to literally relieve themselves in holes where at one time toilets were. Yes, it was that kind of Detroit Techno party. Finally though, around 6:00 a.m., we’d have to adjourn to our room at the Greektown Casino for a brief respite from the dancefloor…

Sunday Songs of the Day

Sunday began with a heavy dose of groove, taking in the Ghostly International Showcase on the THUMP stage, with an irresistible smattering of deep-disco and house from former La Roux keyboardist turned fast rising dance producer, Fort Romeau, followed by some utterly tasteful genre-blurring from Rone before taking in a bouncy slate of House tunes from Oliver Dollar. A brief ince-cream break ensued before we took in some early era Acid and Tech bent by Josh Wink. With warm, humid air, overcast skies and plenty of Stella Artois from the hipster approved Biergarten, it seemed all was calm before the 7:00 hour struck. That hour commenced perhaps one of the most stacked and busiest stretched of artists we’d get to experience over the weekend at Hart Plaza. Luckily for us, Movement’s six-stage setup required no longer than a 5-10 minute walk from any one stage to another, so we managed to take in a 20 minute taste each of the two-step, bass fueled stylings of Hudson Mohawke (who, much to this writer’s delight, played much less trap than we’d expected), a melodic and tech-house tipping Maya Jane Coles experience, and an unfortunately uninterested end to one of Art Department’s last ever shows from both Kenny Glasgow & Jonny White. While it was sad to see the door close on one of dance music’s greatest ever gifts, it was quite easy to see the lack of passion felt for each other at this tage. At least we were there though to close the book with them. We knew following that particular trio of performances would be tough from anyone, but luckily Detroit’s most recognizable rap child Danny Brown was just slinking on stage at the RBMA tent to turn in our favorite lyrically driven show of the entire experience. The hits were there; “Growing Up” and the Purity Ring collaboration “25 Bucks”, yet Brown’s most powerful work manifested on the more ratchet side of his persona. That screeching, inimitable flow sounded even better than on most of Old even, and over the course of our trip, proved to be an absolute shining point. As most of the younger crowd could be found whomping the night away on Movement’s Main Stage for the Skrillex & Boys Noize team known as Dog Blood, while the realest of techno heads were ramping things up with Berghain’s hottest export, Ben Klock, on the Underground Stage; we chose to end our night behind a moving hour and a half of tasteful House and Techno from the Ghostly International founder himself Matthew Dear. There were a number of beautiful sets on Saturday, but none could have held our sometimes overly critical attention like Dear. We were moved from minimal & melodic to buoyant bounce and all the way back, again heralding the New York native’s fluid ability to take on any number of aural aesthetics. After such an engaging finish to Movement Day 2, there was nowhere to go but up, and it was time for our Dirtybird friends’ 10 year anniversary show at Detroit’s legendary Fillmore Theater.

From the moment we waltzed into that legendary space, (which helped build acts like Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight & The Pips and The Isley Brothers in its infancy) an incredibly inviting air, fueled by loads of energy, pumped through every inch of space. While we unfortunately missed Ardalan and J.Phlip pace the D10 showcase, we arrived in the nick of time for label bosses Justin Martin and Claude Von Stroke who more than satiated our appetite for Dirtybird’s rough and tumble Tech-House. Both entities blazed through most every imprint staple including Shiba San’s “Okay”, Von Stroke & Justin Jay’s joint effort “Sugar and Cinnamon” and a perfect closing tune for the night, “Who’s Afraid of Detroit”. While most of our friends returned to City Club for a few hours before Seth Troxler’s ‘Old Miami’ party started around 7:00 a.m.; it was about 5:00 a.m. and we had another day to take in. Hotel beds never felt so good.

Monday Songs of the Day

Alas, and with a twinge of melancholy, we’d made it to the final day of Movement’s incredible three-day run. And with only the fraction of energy we would’ve preferred, we soldiered on using the backdrop of our favorite dance artists as gasoline. 4:00 p.m. may have been a little later than usual for our arrival, but after making our usual pit-stops at the media tent for a few beers, which had become the source of many a fun interaction over the days; it was right back to it with Patrick Topping setting the tone. In just an hour the Newcastle native made one of the biggest stamps on our weekend with a diverse range of House and Techno, proving why his name is being uttered along with some of the heavyweights out of those aforementioned musical corners. With so many great acts calling for our attention however, we began what had now become a very normal mid-day shuffle between all six stages to take in the likes of Jimmy Edgar & Machinedrum’s JETS duo, the feelgood club-house of Route 94, and Detroit natives The Saunderson brothers lacing up a contemporary take on their city while proud papa Kevin looked on before settling back into the Main Stage for some much needed soulful House and Disco from L.A. tastemakers Classixx. Long one of our favorite all-around projects in any musical capacity as both a live troupe and as disc-jockeys, Classixx dispensed one of the more refreshing slots of Movement. The pair stayed true to the curation-centric aspect of the weekend, dropping everything from MK’s chart topping remix of Storm Queen’s “Look Right Through” to the original mix of Prince’s “Wanna Be Your Lover”, but only offered up one Classixx original in the form of the Nancy Whang featuring “All You’re Waiting For”. With the sun beginning to set, and the singalong vibes behind us, it was time to shift gears towards slightly weightier fare in the form of Lithuanian superstar Ten Walls. Ten Walls’ set read like a playbook of his most notable, bassoon led singles. Tunes that cast him into the mainstream were all played in full  including “Walking With Elephants” and latest offering “Sparta”, but those gear shifting spaces in which we were led to a number of listening realms really held our focus. We’ve come to realize through Ten Walls’ sound, that there’s something about a classical bassoon layed over a 4/4 kick that we’ve not been able to shake since our first listen, and this performance at Movement served to only keep that fire burning. After that performance, it was yet another blur of of friends and tracks, while half of our team split for Maceo Plex and Brodinski. This writer however, managed to catch both. Brodinski’s evolution into hip-hop DJ though, has been somewhat of a letdown for his earliest supporters (myself included) who wanted a bit more of an industrial house edge than a trap-infused fist-pumper… How the times have changed. Maceo Plex of course picked up right where we’d fallen off however. It was a pretty simple decision for us to close out the festivities with two of techno’s most credited pioneers: first with MK then also with 2/3 of the ‘Belleville Three': Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May, as ‘Hi-Tech Soul’ on THUMP’s excellent stage -rather than listen to a 50 year old Snoop Dogg deliver a ‘DJ Set’ (think high-school prom DJ) on the Main, but much of Movement’s crowd didn’t quite share the same zeal. Instead, we were treated to quite an intimate set from a couple of our biggest idols. Not a bad way to end our journey in Hart Plaza.

recondite

Of course, our last night couldn’t have ended there? You’re absolutely correct, we had two more absolutely stacked afterparties calling our name, and we weren’t going to disappoint on the last day. First, we joined one of our favorite labels, Black Butter Records for their top-to-bottom stacked night at Populux featuring MK, Lee Foss, Gorgon City and Kidnap Kid. Unfortunately, while only going until 2:00 a.m., we missed a fair share of the entire event before closing with a typically well put-together groovy house set from Kidnap Kid. BBR’s party housed one of the best party vibes of the entire experience, and best looking attendees of any party at that. Just In case you came this far down our review and needed that affirmation. But, with only a few more hours left on our journey, we hightailed it over to TheHundred Presents & Country Club Disco’s closing show to take in sets with option4, Golf Clap, Christian Martin & Moon Boots. While not quite as full as expected, the intimate party was exactly what the doctor ordered for the last day: a family. Hugs were being doled out left and right, full rounds of drinks were being bought for strangers and every artist more than brought their A-Game to the DJ booth. We couldn’t have lost our Movement Festival V-Cards with anyone else than the group we were with. After a drunken stumble for Chili-Dogs, fries and ‘Loose-Burgers’ the only thought on our mind as we pumped the remainder of our money into a cruel Blackjack table was: “We made it”!

soulclap

Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival set the bar for what an all-around music festival based around dance music should be. And we can’t think of a better way to sum it up than with a direct quote from our friend Benjamin Giordano: “Somewhat of a forgotten city, what you can get away with in this beautiful metropolis you really can’t anywhere else. Every city has its unique qualities. In a day and age when everything is so sanitized, Detroit has a grit that cities like New York polished out decades ago. The vibe is dank, industrial, sometimes dungeonous, and always unpretentious, relentless, and hedonistic. I was so glad to have shared such a fantastic trip with the likes of some of my favorite people in the world. New friends were made and an unexpectedly intense romance was formed with a very special city.” We’ve echoed those same sentiments since our return and are looking forward to many more years of Movement under Paxahau’s direction. Until 2016…

This has been 4 Days In the Life of a Ninja at Movement.

PREMIERE: Johnny Trika – Punk Fools EP [SCI+TEC]

Montreal’s new master of minimal techno, Johnny Trika, has been called the “French Dubfire,” a label that fits like a glove since the 22-year-old joined Dubfire’s SCI+TEC label in 2014. Following up last October’s debut EP, Main Squeeze, is the dark and brooding three-track Punk Fools EP, and LessThan3 has the exclusive premiere of the entire thing.



Opening the action is the title track, a snaking, high-energy number that will make Richie Hawtin fanboys everywhere weak in the knees as it’s got the perfect vibe and “oomph” to send any underground party into that next level. Juicy James continues the murderous minimal madness with a hypnotizing trek featuring oodles of bounce. Closing out the EP is Dark Matter, a slightly more reserved but undeniably atmospheric track. It’s still a driving little tune, but the wind-like howls and glittering synths make for a very unique audial experience. Techno lovers, you need this EP.



Pick up the Punk Fools EP June 4 on Beatport.

Movement 2015: The Good, The Bad & The Techno

Phewww! Several days later and I’m still feeling the repercussions of the 72-hour extravaganza known as Movement Detroit. I consider myself a bit of a techno junkie, but on Memorial Day weekend myself and 100,000 others definitely got our fill. From noon on Saturday until the early morning on Tuesday, somewhere, people were dancing to techno music. As we look back at moments we’ll never forget–and the moments we can’t quite remember–here are the things that stood out.



The Good: The Music

Unless you’ve grabbing a flight over to Europe, Movement is truly the Mecca of underground dance music. As such, the assorted 140 artists brought their A-game to all six stages. From the dark and minimal sounds of Matador at the Underground Stage, to the uplifting vibes of closing act Joris Voorn, to the all-family Saunderson affair at the Made In Detroit Stage, and back to the groovy vibes of first-time act Disclosure, all different sounds and style were on full display. With so many incredible artists playing at the same time it was impossible to catch them all, but here’s a list of my favorite performances, in no particular order. Apologies to anyone I missed out–there was too much good for just one little journalist!



Day 1: Gaiser, Mano Le Tough, Eats Everything, Dixon, Stacey Pullen, Cell Injection, Carl Craig, Disclosure, Richie Hawtin

Day 2: Josh Wink, Loco Dice, Maya Jane Coles, Joseph Capriati, Matthew Dear, Rodhad, Marcel Dettman, Ben Klock

Day 3: Classixx, Ten Walls, Maceo Plex, Paco Osuna, Nicole Moudaber, Joris Voorn, MK, Matador, Ben Sims



Special mention has to go to all the performers at the Underground Stage. It might not be for everybody, but there’s nothing quite like throwing it down to pounding, no-holds-barred, dark techno in a sweaty, concrete cavern. Special consideration to those people who got right into the middle of the carnage. I still can’t get Cell Injection and Rodhad’s sets out of my brain.

The Good: The People

Despite estimated crowds of over 100,000, there were few, if any, problems to be had at the festival. People were kind, courteous, and more than willing to think about more than just themselves. I met several fantastic people during my trek through Hart Plaza, from a young girl teaching impromptu yoga classes to a 70-year-old grandmother at her first festival looking to try something new. Perhaps as a result of the festival’s lack of “mainstream” sound and Las Vegas-style DJs, as well as the city of Detroit’s somewhat shady reputation, the people that came to Movement were in it for the music and the experience, not for bottle service and the chance to flash steroid-fuelled biceps.


The Bad: Ticket Problems

On opening day, thousands were left standing in lines for up to four hours as a result of a ticketing malfunction. It wasn’t much better in the VIP admission line either, as frustrated would-be dancers cried foul that Movement’s Facebook page showed a photo of an empty line. Although the problem was eventually rectified, it was a poor start to the event. Paxahau would later issue an apology and promise to increase the number of staff in 2016.


The Bad: Snoop Dogg’s Closing Set

Let’s be honest–did anyone think that booking Snoop Dogg, aka DJ Snoopadelic, as the closing act on the final night of Movement was a good decision? I made the smart decision and caught Joris Voorn’s awe-inspiring performance on the Beatport Stage, but I heard enough horror stories from other festivalgoers who made the mistake of watching the Doggfather. Anyone who plays out Bis Sean’s IDFWU for the entire 6-minute runtime and closes with a Will.I.Am track should have their Detroit music card revoked.


The Good: The Afterparties




Although the music during the day was undeniably world-class, anyone who has ever been to Movement knows that it at the afterparties where the festivities really take it to the next level. With multiple venues playing host a series of shows each night, the question wasn’t whether you were going to party until 6 a.m., but what party you were going to party at until 6 a.m. No disrespect to Disclosure, Kevin Saunderson, and company on Saturday, Dirtybird’s 10th anniversary party on Sunday, or Richie Hawtin’s closing party on Monday–because all of these were fantastic–but my pick goes to Leland City Club’s Sunday night party, most specifically Loco Dice’s surprise performance. It’s one thing to own a room, especially one as historic as the City Club, but it’s another altogether when you blow the roof off a dancefloor that has Skrillex, Art Department, Boys Noize, and more dancing on it. No one on the corner has swagger like Loco…


The Good: The City

I said it during last year’s review, and I’ll say it again–Detroit is an awesome city. Forget about whatever horror stories someone has told you, because in my experience, you can’t ask for a better place to hold a dance party. Not only are the local residents happy for the business, the city is steeped in musical history, perhaps moreso than any other city in the United States, from Motown and punk rock to hip hop and techno. Need proof that Rock City has got it going on? Check out this video of a cop hyping up the crowd down below.

The Beatport Box 55

Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, Toolroom brings together some of the biggest names in house music, Ummet Ozcan releases his strongest track in years, Andrea Oliva drops an LP on Objektivity, and more.

Deep/Tech | Sebastien San – Darker Shades (Deepchord Remixes) [Ab Initio]

Channeling his legendary dub techno vibes, Deepchord takes classic Sebastien San track Darker Shades and gives it the Detroit makeover. As you’d expect, we have dense atmospheres, endless reverbs, and grooving basslines to keep our head in the clouds for the entirety of this release. A great chance to bag the Sebastian San classic, but the Deepchord Fog Mix is the pick of the bunch here. Get it here.


Deep/Tech | Dani Casarano & Felipe Valenzuela – Introspection EP [Cadenza]

Continuing to contribute some of the world’s finest tech house to the masses, Cadenza sees the return of Felipe Valenzuela and Dani Casarano to Luciano’s famed imprint with Introspection. Both tracks feature the label’s signature groove and delicate drum patterns that dance around the track’s central rhythm. These will easily find their way into the sets of top jocks through summer 2015. Pick it up here.


Deep/Tech | Andrea Oliva – 4313 LP [Objektivity]

After amassing an impressive collection of originals and remixes on some of the top deep and tech house labels, Andrea Oliva makes his album debut through Dennis Ferrer’s Objektivity with 4313. Providing a perfect representation of his melodic house sound, 4313 effortlessly leads deep/tech heads into the summer party season with melancholic sunset grooves that encapsulate the open air vibe. Grab it here.


House | Mark Knight, Harry Romero, Chus & Ceballos feat. Cevin Fisher – The Machines [Toolroom]

UK, USA, and Spain come together for a spectacular meeting of the minds on Toolroom’s The Machines. Toolroom head honcho Mark Knight, Spanish duo Chus & Ceballos, New York house legend Harry Romero have created a house monster on this one–with all those names on one track, how could they not? Either “the machines are taking over,” or these guys are. Download here.


House/Big Room | Ummet Ozcan – Lose Control (Original Mix) [Spinnin’]

Ummet Ozcan started out in trance, then he made a successful left turn into big room/electro, and now he’s flexing his house muscles on his newest release, Lose Control. With soulful vibes and a tastefully destructive drop, this is certainly our favorite Ozcan release of the last couple of years. Purchase here.

The Technodrome 07: Movement 2015 Edition

Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, and with it one of the best techno festivals on the planet: Movement Electronic Music Festival. For three days and nights–plus several early mornings–the city danced to the sweet undergrounds sounds of Hart Plaza. As you can see from the picture above, most of us are still recovering.



In celebration of this incredible occasion–and my impending physical and mental collapse–I have dedicated this week’s edition of The Technodrome to the best new techno music from several artists who performed, including Joseph Capriati, Maceo Plex, Joris Voorn, and more.



Joseph Capriati – This Then That (Original Mix) [Drumcode]

Capriati closed out the Beatport stage with style on Sunday night, sending the crowd into collective apoplexy with a foot-stomping blend of high-intensity techno. Pick up one of my favorite tracks on Beatport here.
For those of you who missed out on his set, you can listen to it in full here.


Gregor Tresher & Peter Dundov – Taurus [Break New Soil]

I heard this monster being dropped at the Underground Stage and the rest is pretty hazy, because I’m pretty sure I lost a good chunk of my mind in some dark corner. If you were looking for good, hard, unrelenting techno, there was no better place this weekend than that cacophonous, concrete cavern.


Heron – The Man Who Sold His Life (Original Mix) [FLASH]

Speaking of the underground, I’d be remiss if I skipped over a powerhouse trio of Rodhad, Marcell Dettman, and Ben Klock, who annihilated Sunday evening with three back-to-back-to-back sets. One of the highlights was Heron’s The Man Who Sold His Life, courtesy of Mr. Dettman. Pick it up on Beatport here.


Maceo Plex & Gabriel Ananda – Solitary Daze (Original Mix) [Ellum]

After watching Maceo throw it down last year at both the main festival and the official closing party, I was more than excited to see what he would bring to this year’s edition, and he didn’t disappoint. After an exhausting first few days I was content to relax in the grass while he dropped some absolute bombs, but his recent collab with Gabriel Ananda gave me that third (or was it fourth?) wind that I needed. Pick it up here.


Royksopp – I Had This Thing (Joris Voorn Remix) [Green]

While the award for best set of the weekend may end up going to Loco Dice’s jaw-dropping surprise set at the Leland City Club afterparty, I’m confident in saying that Monday belonged at to Amsterdam’s Joris Voorn. While Snoop Dogg was busy embarassing himself on the main stage, Voorn was weaving a beautiful blend of thumping techno and touching progressive electronica that made for the perfect sendoff. Pick it up this gorgeous remix on Beatport here.

Tiga Announces Live Tour & Shares Boys Noize Collab ‘Jam#1′

One of Montreal’s biggest techno exports, Tiga (pictured), announced details to unveil his new live show and shared a second original collaboration alongside Boys Noize.

In what has been a long time coming, Tiga will finally reveal his live performance this summer at nine European festivals. Not only will long time collaborator Jori Hulkkonen be joining Tiga on stage for the debut, but the producer also plans to reveal new material made with Hudson Mohawke, Matthew Dear and others. Having sung in films and his own productions, he has limited the Tiga experience to DJing for his fans–until now. He describes the live show on his Facebook: “There is only you, me, my voice, my moves, and a love supreme.”

The tour announcement comes with the release of his second techno-heavy production with Boys Noize called Jam#1. Following on the tail-end of 100, the track is yet another minimalist’s dream made perfect through the immaculate production styles of both producers.

Jam#1 will see its official release via Turbo on June 22, but you can head to his SoundCloud page to hear more original tunes here.

Confirmed dates:

May 29 – Berlin Festival, Germany

June 5 – HET Depot, Leuven, Belgium

June 6 – Parklife, Manchester, UK

June 19 – Sonar, Barcelona, Spain

June 21 – Body & Soul Festival, Westmeath, Ireland

July 9 – Alive Festival, Portgual

July 25 – Audioriver, Plock Poland

August 15 – Flow Festival, Helsinki, Finland

August 20 – Pukkelpop, Belgium
