Forgotten Treasure: Detroit Beatdown Compilation (2002)

These past couple of years there has a bit of a revival surrounding “slow” house and techno. Producers have been going back to tracks that are in the 105 to 115 bpm rather than techno and house (which usually is much faster at 125 – 130 bpm) and a brand …

Forgotten Treasure: Rhythm & Sound “What A Mistry” (1999)

When the record store I was working at in 1999 got a few copies of this 12″ I bought one on the spot and that same night it started playing on loop. 7 times to be exact. Major game changer for me. I would almost go so far as saying …

Future Classic: Objekt “Cactus / Porcupine” (Hessle Audio)

Now this is one EP we’ve been waiting for impatiently! OBJEKT is one of the freshest new producers on the block really knocked us out in 2011 with his lean and minimal brand of techno meets dubstep. In fact, we picked “Tinderbox” as one of our favorite tracks of 2011. …

Future Classic: Gravious “Spatial Dimensions EP”

I first came across Gravious when he released the Junction City EP about a year ago. Mixing all the niceties of techno with the accessibility of dubstep is no small feat but this man seems to have managed to pull it off. In doing so he combines a bouncy experimental …

Future Classic: Lorca “Hold Back”

If anyone said there’s a seasonality to certain music , I wouldn’t disagree. Surely good music can be enjoyed regardless of time and place, yet sometimes it’s all about a specific mood that a certain kind of music evokes. I first came across Lorca’s ‘Hold Back’ in the summer through …
