Planetary Assault Systems - Rip The Cut (Dubfire Remix)

Loading...

Dubfire continues to prove that with age comes finesse and skill. The legendary techno producer is a mainstay of the scene, first making his mark in the mid-90s as part of the legendary duo Deep Dish. Although that project is ongoing, Ali Shirazinia truly broke out as a star through the techno-based Dubfire project. Known for scintillating live sets, his remix of ‘Rip the Cut’ is a perfect example of what to expect from a Dubfire set. Hypnotic, intense, high-speed techno. 

FJAAK (DJ Set) | Boiler Room x AVA Festival 2021

German techno duo Fjaak are one of the brightest and most unique duos in the world of techno. Never ones to take their craft too seriously, they use social media to poke fun at living out their dream career. Their style, however, is unparalleled. True legends on the decks, they often rely on acid sounds with a healthy dose of hip-hop samples and funky vocals. Although this set is a DJ set, they typically perform live using a mixture of Ableton and various beat pads/synthesizers. 

Eric Sneo Meets Virgil Enzinger - Metric 2006

Dark techno is only a partial summation of “Metric.” Released in 2006, this track feels ahead of its time. It carries the massive energy we have come to expect from modern-day big room techno while maintaining the excited pace and minimalist qualities that the early 2000s brought to the genre. It is a true weapon for any techno set. 

Mark Dekoda - Rave Harder Techno Bass

Loading...

“Rave Harder Techno Bass, Sex Drugs Alcohol.” Although simple, Mark Dekoda’s vocal repetition is intoxicating and meshes perfectly with a high-speed drum pattern. Coming in at 136 BPM, “Rave Harder Techno Bass” is a perfect example of a track that focuses on simplicity while also bringing a monster build-up that is sure to tear down any festival stage. 

Boris Brejcha at Arènes de Nîmes, in France for Cercle

Although he has self-defined his genre as “high-tech minimal,” enough of Boris Brejcha’s music falls into the techno category that his inclusion in this weekly piece is long overdue. Performing for his second Cercle in April 2022, Boris proves how impactful his music can be on a crowd of any size or location. 

Adam Beyer - Antistius 2009

Loading...

Although he is now an undisputed king of techno, Adam Beyer has not always produced the genre. Getting his career started in the early 2000s, Beyer had almost a decades worth of work before diving into the deep dark world. 2009 marked a transition year for him, as he was getting Drumcode off the ground and dropping more techno-influenced tracks like “Antistius.”
