About half of this mix is a tour through free dub techno netlabels – Deepindub (track 7), Dewtone (tracks 9 and 15), Energostatic (tracks 3 and 4), Recycled Plastics (track 2), and Thinner (track 8) all feature here. My favorites of those are the two from Energostatic Records: Stereotype by Iwata and III by Brk. Dewtone and Recycled Plastics appear to be the only active labels from that list.
Track 6 Remake (Basic Reshape) by Paperclip People (AKA Carl Craig) is of course a Basic Channel remix. The copy played here is from the Basic Reshape 12″, Basic Channel catalog number BC-BR. I believe I bought my copy at Platinum Records a few years after its release. I’ve linked to Hardwax in the tracklist above, where that same release is still available both vinyl and digital.
Both pieces by Seal Bient are from the Russian techno label Motorlab. I’ve written about Motorlab here before, but it’s worth recommending their releases again if you’re into dub techno and/or spare detroit-ish techno. They have a couple interesting sublabels, too: Cyclon and Runout, for tracky techno and ambient releases respectively.
And that’s the end of MTT Year 3. Thank you everyone out there listening; I hope you’ve enjoyed, and found some new music. I have something special planned for next week’s show, the first of year four: fast (130-140) techno, with an unusual theme. Should be a good time.
Tracks 12, 13, and 14 are all from releases on CPU Records. I’m still working through a recent large purchase of music from their shop, and they continue to be excellent. Tracks 8, 9, and 16 are taken from Solar One Music‘s second and third compilation. Solar One recently celebrated their 50th release, a sweet electro-techno collaboration between The Exaltics and Paris The Black Fu called We Exist.
My current favorite here is Recall (Live) by スムー, from the TUMA 3.0 compilation. I love the interplay between the drums (kick on 14, snare on 22) and the high ringing synth. The whole comp is interesting, and it’s listed as name-your-price, so check it out.
I’ve got my regular show with Megaphysics at the arcade next week, so expect something low-energy (and low-effort) next show. Thanks all for listening, and be sure to check the tracklist links above if you’re interested in the music played here.
