Alright techno fans, we’ve survived Monday and Tuesday again, which means that we’re only a few short days away from the weekend. To celebrate the impending parties and shows we just can’t say no to, here’s this week’s edition of The Technodrome, featuring new techno music from Oliver Schories, Dave Seaman, Monoloc, and more. Happy dancing.
Justin Massei – Nothing Can Hide (Dave Seaman Remix) [Selador]
This peak-time monster from label boss Dave Seaman explodes with a relentless, unadulterated energy, perfect for the main room. If the driving bass doesn’t get you (hint: it will), the teeth-rattling percussion and dark vocals certainly will. Pick it up on Beatport here.
Schlepp Geist – The Suffer Between (Oliver Schories Remix) [SOSO]
I See Fire, and it’s the newest production from Germany’s Oliver Schories, who absolutely blows the entire roof off with this massive remix. The bassline is leg-meltingly gorgeous, but it’s the build-up and subsequent drop that have me drooling at images of this being played out on club speakers. I’ve been smashing out the SoundCloud link for a few weeks, but you can finally pick it up on Beatport here.
Stephan Bodzin – Singularity (Monoloc Edit 01) [Life and Death]
Bodzin’s original was my recent Friday Favorites pick, but the vinyl-only edit by Monoloc is equally impressive and memorable. Ominous and atmospheric, it slowly builds and builds around powerful drums and a hazy, illusory melody before reaching it’s full audial onslaught. While the physical release date is yet to be determained, you can grab the digital EP, which includes another stunning Monoloc edit, on Beatport here.
Mark Knight, Harry Romero, Chus & Ceballos feat. Cevin Fisher – The Machines (Original Mix) [Toolroom]
Look at the talent on this track! Three of underground dance music’s legends go at it on this one-off collab. As you might expect, it’s a big room techno bomb that is tailor-made for the party circuit. The Machines might be coming, but with these guys on production duties I’m not too worried. Pick it up on Beatport here.
Harvard Bass – That’s Me (Original Mix) [Saved]
Harvard Bass’ latest off the Relocation EP is a rump-shaking groove replete with a tribal bassline, laser beam sound effects, and an irresistible looped vocal. I dare you not to dance. Pick it up on Beatport here.
