Fact: the sounds of Cassegrain will get under one’s skin; the techno twosome have been making some of the most immeasurably evocative techno in the past couple of years, releasing serious heat for the likes of KILLEKILL and Prologue. When it comes to finding the eeriness and eagerness in between tunes, Cassegrain has it covered.With their latest release, Tiamat (available this week), the duo sprawl their best work yet, enduringly calling it “master-class techno.” We at URB know that’s the case, which is why we asked them to contribute a mix for our podcast series. To say we’re stunned at how good this is would be a lie; but to say we can’t stop listening to this podcast would be the truth. That damn good. Judge for yourself as you enjoy some top-tier atmospheric techno carnage. Tracklist down below.
This week’s special podcast comes from the mind of Houston-bred, Berlin-based “digital aesthetic” Lōtic. Signed to Brooklyn next-generation electronic label SCI-FI & FANTASY, the 23-year old producer dazzled us here at URB with his two-track scorcher “Sankofa/Glittering”, meshing together elements of ballroom, booming bass, footwork, industrial and experimental drone atmospheres to create a thoroughly unique sonic experience that will charm, confuse and cross dance floors. This is the epitome of “next shit”, people. With that said, Lōtic gave us a quick write-up of this special mix, entitled “The Weighing Of The Heart”; where he carved a path between the sounds of his own productions, his contemporaries, and his #feelings. For real. Check out Lōtic’s words, as well as the track list, down below. Happy hunting.
Well, this is something we have been looking forward to. Initially, when we heard Marc Romboy and Ken Ishii were working together, we laughed at the possibility that both these techno titans would come together for a measly podcast. We couldn’t be happier that we’re wrong, as the Systematic Recordings kingpin and Japanese legend brought URB a tremendous mix that goes between past and present in seamless fashion.
Something within the vocals, productions and synth work of Sally Shapiro lies a wicked DJ. We at URB knew this from the moment we heard the duo way back, and were intrigued at the prospect of a Sally Shapiro mix. Well, …
This week’s URB podcast comes from the likes of Tom Dicicco, the UK-based producer that has been steadily weaving himself upon the subconscious ecosystem that surrounds the likes of Shifted, Svreca and Truncate. Dicicco’s already amassed a following with his previous releases for labels like Traut Muzik, Baud and his Project Squared release with fellow UK off-techno compatriot Kowton, and he’s not showing any signs of slowing down. We wouldn’t want him to, as his adept sonics are a thunderous joy to listeners and clubgoers alike. Get lost in the darkness with this week’s mix, you won’t regret it. No tracklist, open mind.
