It’s an absolute pleasure to welcome our talented friend Teleseen to the mix series. A true musical do-it-all, he’s also quite the record digger too. I was really curious to hear what he was going to come with and was certainly not dissapointed!
@teleseen: “This mix focuses on the techno that was coming out of NYC and the surrounding areas in the late 90s and early 2000s, when I first moved there.
The kind of stuff you used to be able to find at Dance Tracks on 3rd St in the East Village when it was still there and you can still find in bargain bins in shops all over town. This sound is a bit overlooked and overshadowed by the foundational stuff from Detroit and Berlin but it was equally important in its day and continues to influence producers around the world. The New York sound was unique in the fact that it drew equal influence in places from hip hop, freestyle, and Caribbean music, but also from punk, hardcore, and industrial.
There’s a signature deepness to a lot of these tracks as well, which is contrasted against a certain austere harshness that was reflected in the city’s landscape at the time. This sound was what I first encountered when I began exploring electronic music and it continues to influence my work.”
