Following the Black Dog’s devestating performance at the legendary Park Hill Flats I was inspired to do a new mix of techno. Actually it’s been on my mind for a while because there is a big techno and acid revival brewing, partly with Jackmaster / Numbers playing techno (but with rewinds and MCs) and partly with people like Funk Butcher dropping bits of acid into funky sets. Naturally I have some acidic funky tunes ready to drop. But this set is mainly about the sheer visceral head rush of good techno, acid and hard house. I still have a lot of this stuff I want to put in a mix, especially things like Dave the Drummer’s gigantic The Speed Freak, Cosmic Trigger’s the Oracle etc.
It starts with a load of rave-destroying hard acid, drops down into more minimal techno, some tough house before spazzing out completely over Dubfire’s utterly bonkers refix of Plastikman’s Spastik. You’ll like it. It’s a 100% original vinyl mix in one take, for those of you who still care about such things.
