This week’s edition of The Technodrome has us celebrating a mini milestone–we’re in double digits! In honor of this decennial occasion, we’re jamming out to some hot new techno music from Bart Skils, Rodhad, Butch, and more, plus a remix of a Sven Vath classic. Onwards to 100 we go!
Bart Skils – Dark Days (Original Mix) [Drumcode]
Drumcode mainstay Bart Skils drops his four-track Lost Boys EP June 21, and each track is so good I had a hard time choosing just one. Like its name suggests, Dark Days is a nasty little nighttime number made for the after-hours spot. The tension and energy are sky high on this tune. Stream the full EP here.
Rodhad – Im Glanz Des Mondes (Original Mix) [Dystopian]
Ok, this track is definitely a little weird, but then again, did you expect anything less from Rodhad? The opening track on the Berlin-based producer’s Kinder Der Ringwelt EP is the eerie and unearthly Im Glanz Des Mondes. It’s an 11-minute journey through dark, far-off spaces and otherworldly sounds–this one has Berghain written all over it. Explore the Ringworld and stream the full EP here.
Sven Vath – Ritual Of Life (Adam Port 108 Mix) [Cocoon]
Papa Sven’s 1993 classic Ritual Of Life gets a righteous remix from Keine Musik co-founder Adam Port. Oozing with tribal flavor and Eastern atmosphere, this track is 10-minutes of psychedelic beats and spiritual sounds. Save this one for one of those long nights–you know the kind. Pick it up on Beatport here.
Lauren Lane – Cool Kids (Nic Fanciulli & Butch Remix) [Saved]
Two of my favorite producers deliver an irresistibly groovy remix that will have you bopping your head and shaking what your momma gave you. Fun-loving, laid-back, and simple, it features a memorable bassline, a bouncy beat, and an energetic top-end that I can’t get enough of. Pick it up on Beatport here.
Durtysoxxx – Overdose (Original Mix) [Jumpstereo]
Durtysoxx wasn’t a name I was familiar with before, but I won’t be forgetting the name after listening to this monster of a tune. The Funk’n Deep Records head-honcho injects an excessive and dangerous dose of dark, twisted techno right into your bloodstream–all you can do is hang on for dear life and dance it off. The three accompanying remixes on the EP are no slouches either. Pick it up on Beatport here.
