New Releases

Flying Octopus - Oliver Heldens & Reinier Zonneveld

Oliver Heldens’ transition to techno is not what most would have expected when the young Dutch star burst onto the scene. After releasing a handful of tracks over the years under his Hi-Lo moniker, this year, he's kicked the techno into high gear, even dropping a taste for his set on the Ultra Music Festival mainstage. Ollie has returned with perhaps his most impactful techno track yet. Collaborating with the legend, Reinier Zonneveld cements Ollie as a force to be reckoned with, as the two produce a unique track that brings high BPM beats alongside a chugging bassline.

Dystopia - Rebūke

Rebuke is a true master of unique sound design. His style is a combination of 90s techno and house with modern twists. He broke onto the scene with his track “Along Came Polly” and since has continued to unleash dancefloor-destroying tunes at every turn. More firmly in the techno camp these days, his new track “Dystopia,” on Drumcode Records, is a perfect example of his old-school rave influences. 

Mixes

Rebūke Live at Creamfields 2021

If you want a sense of how the rising star Rebuke plays live, his set at Creamfields 2021 is a masterpiece. Although he played earlier in the day, his high-energy acid techno set brought out the best of the crowd. 

Victor Ruiz Live for Beatport - March 2022

An absolute legend of the game, Victor Ruiz has been spinning techno for decades. The Brazillian-born, Berlin-based producer, is a true icon. And even when performing for a livestream, his sounds are heavy and energetic. 

Techno Classics

Victor Ruiz - Guatemala EP (2010)

Loading...

Continuing on with the legend Victor, this 12-year-old EP still holds up today as an absolute monster with clear Brazillian influences. The quality of his productions has not dipped over the years, and we look forward to continuing to watch him put out masterful music. 

Victor Calderone - Beat Me Harder (1997)

Loading...

Although his 1997 EP, Beat Me Harder, is more in the house lane, we could not resist doubling up on the Victors in this week’s edition of techno weekly. Victor Calderone is an American techno icon. Your favorite DJs of today were certainly seeing him live and learning from his early music. The 1997 EP is a prime example of what electronic music was like then, specifically what you could expect to hear at a night at an American club or warehouse.
