DJ Mix: Take 3… Detroit Techno, Acid, Breaks, Industrial, New Wave and House Music with benny blanco®

After some frustrating technical issues this evening with the internet connection configuration (i did some poor rewiring of things), I finally had a semi stable connection to broadcast and capture 1 solid hour of music. This is not the cleanest session/recording.. but the mixing is actually alright and the camera works was a bit more reserved this time around. Didn’t go as crazy.

I also had turn off my intended localized recording of the session for higher quality archival purposes. Instead, I was able to snag Facebook’s low res capture before they flagged the mix for ‘unauthorized’ content. Out of all the tracks I played, I only  got dinged on Nitzer Ebb’s ‘Murderous’ track… which is quite funny as I had a more mainstream track I thought with Thompson Twins ‘Lies (extended mix)’ in there closer to the end. Ahh…. algorithms.

This mix jumps around from ambient intro into a furied frenzy of Detroit Techno and Acid (an emotional direction I took stemmed from the broadcast streaming issues), but I finally settle into a decent groove for the remainder of the short set. Short for me anyway.

Music from this 1 hour session includes:
FUSE, The Martian, Luke Vibert, Teste, Morph, Fuzz Face, Hardfloor, Elektrochemie LK, Nitzer Ebb, Trans-X, The Rapture (Morgan Geist Remix), Thompson Twins, Dee Patten, Plump DJ’s (featuring Gary Numan), Felix Da Housecat (Tiga Remix), Aril Brikha, Plez, and LFO to close things out.
