DJ Mix – Friday Throwdown – Benny Blanco® – 90s Techno & House – May 17th, 2024

90s’ Techno & House
1 hr 44 min

Back on the decks after a few weeks off, but also a shorter session than normal as I was phoned to pick up my son at school after spending the day at Six Flags riding roller coasters all day. Nonetheless, went into this set just wanting to play some 90s Techno and House jams. Was hoping to dig into the actual vinyl archive lying about in the basement, but I had a ton already digitized tracks ready to go in that 129 – 133 BPM range. Few dodgy mixes here and there, but fairly tight for the most part.

During the performance it was fun to see some familiar faces pop up in the chat from my Boston base back in the 90s. Tracklist below…

DJ Mix – Friday Throwdown – Benny Blanco® – House Techno Trance 130 BPMish – April 26th, 2024

House Techno Trance 130 BPMish
2 hrs 40 min

Orbital had recently released a Remaster of their classic Debut Album, the ‘Green’ Album and that was the impetus for starting this week’s set with 2 back to back Orbital tracks, but another track from much later in their Discography appears near set’s end.

Overall the set is quite varied mixing Techno House Progressive House Breaks Detroit and Minimal Dub Techno grooves. Was a fun mix to do this Friday. Some fun Retro Visuals to boot as well.

80s 90s Nu-Disco Industrial
2 hrs 49 min

The bulk of my Friday Throwdown Audience are People from my day job here at Disney. They like to tune into my sets on Friday as a bulk of them are on the west coast and have something to look forward to gearing up for the weekend and close out the workday. I do have a few loyal East Coasters followers like Seefurst, ewordnyc on Twitch who almost always tune in and hang out for almost the entire show. Kudos.

These type of sets are the type that my work crowd seem to gravitate too the most whereas my old Boston/617 and NYC Crews prefer the more House/Techno/Progressive House Electronics ones. The sets are theraputic for me as I get a chance to unwind doing something I love all from the comfort of my own basement cranking the volume and bass up loud to no worry of a neighbor asking me to turn it down.

These type of sets are fun to play, but I can’t play them every week, I need to change it up a little.

Sweet downloads await you at the bottom of this post for your run, walk, workout or something to groove out and sing to during your work day. Take it easy. 80s New Wave 90s Manchester & Industrial classics, take it away. Snag the free downloads below.

Acid Trance Breaks
2 hrs 59 min

Fun upbeat mix with tons of acid trance and breaks. Quite a few classics, beauties and even a few post 2020 year material if you can believe it. The set actually opens with new material by Dream Hack (also goes by the handle Randolph & Mortimer for some wicked Industrial stuff). The Dream Hack project actually is playing tribute and homeage to some of the big trancier / progressive elecronic acts of the Early 90s. Anyway it was this new track that took me down the path for today’s energetic Breakbeat Haze.

EBM
2 hrs 42 min

Dark Electro Aggro and Experimental. Went down a rabbit hole of finding some newer EBM type material. Stick with it though, the tracks are pretty fresh. If you hold out long enough, I’ll lighten the mood with Australia’s Confidence Man, a shoegazey Beatles Remix and closing out with a psychedelic mind bender wah wah dub outro.

Get that scroll wheel moving down below do you can download the audio mixes for some audio explorations.

DJ Mix – Friday Throwdown – Benny Blanco® – 1st for 2024 – January 12th, 2024

1st for 2024
2 hrs 15 min

I somehow managed to NOT capture my tracklist for this set, but I can give you a few highlights.

 

Act 1: Set opens up with a recently released recreation of the KLF’s What Time is Love by UK’s Special Request (aka Paul Woolford), not an official KLF label release, but fully blessed by the Ancient’s of MuMu. We next head down to another classic, and remastered release by none other than Richie Hawtin with his F.U.S.E album, Dimension Intrusion. This space post club come down tracks is a thing of beauty with all the THX-1138 movie samples dropped in.

Act 2: see us kicking up the Tempo EBM and Acid styles.

Act 3: strolls down the dustier funky slower chuggy space disco district in the 110 – 117 BPM tempo band clearly inspired by the one and only Andrew Weatherall.  RIP.

Lots of cool tracks to check out and as always, don’t forget to scroll down below to grab the audio files to drop your digital player of choice.
