The Martian – Particle Shower

Detroit Techno maestro “Mad” Mike Banks goes full on Housey space Phunq with this dancefloor bomb from 1997.


Sendai – System Policy (Peter Van Hoesen Remix)

Peter Van Hoesen remixes a track he made with Yves De May under the moniker Sendai; which doesn’t quite top the original, yet still manages to deliver a sterling maelstrom of murky, Dub Techno. From the 2009 EP ‘System Policy’.

Stasis – Tau

The UK’s Steve Pickton’s Techno always had more than a hint of the motor city to it; his was a Techno taken straight from the blueprint, where soul took the front seat. ‘Tau’ is electronic and melancholic, and taken from 1994’s fantastic ‘Inspiration’ album.

Dorisburg – Venom

Swedish Techno from October 2017. This is sparse, dank material at 126 bpm. Groove me baby!

Truncate – Pseudo V1

Some new, tough Techno for the purists out there.

Nev – Log N

Tim Prezzano; from Rochester, New York; delivered some deep, soulful, Detroit-style Techno under the name Nev. His output was, alas, minimal. This is from the excellent 1994 EP ‘My Plasma Block’

Function Presents: Sandwell District Continuous DJ Mix (2009)

Heavy, dark, fantastic Techno from the Sandwell District label; delivered by Function.


Mark Broom – Gira

Is it named after the Swans frontman? We don’t know, but we do know that this slice of spectral, stalking UK Techno from 1995 is off of Broom’s ‘Time’ EP.

F.U.S.E – Another Time (Revisited)

Richie Hawtin with some Windsor Techno from back in 1992. Classic, classic stuff that stands proudly next to the motor city sound.

LFO – Simon From Sydney

Crisp, cubic Electro from the Leeds Techno duo’s absolute classic album, 1991’s ‘Frequencies’. Stunning stuff from 2 guys and their hardware from back in the day.
