Techno Aesthetic Vol. 4
1. The Tresor Track (Original Mix) - Mike Huckaby ; Superb dub atmosphere and stereo image/panning in this tribute to the iconic Tresor.Berlin (OFFICIAL)
2. A Particular Moment (Original Mix) - Electric Rescue ; Simply addicting
3. Collect (Original Mix) - SQL ; Layered percussion influences from house music, crowd-pleaser
4. A (Original Mix) - Jon Gurd, Alan Fitzpatrick ; From the ‘Untitled’ EP, Jon Gurd has brought along heavyweight producer and DJ Alan Fitzpatrick for this tune called ‘A’. A clear nod to an earlier era of techno, it even has the fuzziness and saturation of vinyl or tape. Still very fresh and a dance-floor bomb.
5. Frolic (Original Mix) - Cari Lekebusch ; best described by the producer himself, “understated but high impact”
6. Don’t Let Me Fall (Thomas Schumacher Remix) - Fran Von Vie ; An electronic landscape of a remix from a producer with an extensive two decade discography. Also because I follow almost every release put out by Suara
7. Panacea (Original Mix) - NHB, Giorgio Rusconi ; NHB is a duo quickly getting big with their quality techno productions. Can satisfy the underground and the big clubs
8. Tribe (NHB Remix) - Sin Sin ; Another NHB release, this is probably my favorite song of this chart. I found Sin Sin through Metro Theme (which is amazing and was featured on a previous Techno Aesthetic) and this remix by NHB is amazing. One of those percussion noises sound like a billiard ball being hit so I’m really curious to what it actually is (or if I’m right). A song that you can dance to for its entire duration despite it’s lack of melody or vocals. Just pure techno that’s been polished perfectly to transport you on your journey.
9. Triangle (Andrea Giuliani & Luca Rossetti Remix) - Minitronik ; head-down, eerie minimal. Well crafted elements and groove help it stand out in the sea of currently trendy but indistinguishable and unexciting minimal (minimal is one of the hardest genres to stand out in!)
10. Glabord (Original Mix) - Johnny Aemkel ; Another minimal song so the other one doesn’t get lonely. The bassline is the powerful engine behind this. This is part of a two song EP that was the first release on the Cavern label. The releases on that label are sonic representations of shadows and outcasts. Cavern is a great name for the label because that’s exactly what it sounds like (if caverns made techno). Glabord is another standout of this chart… gets that underground vibe in two definitions of the word
