This Week In Techno: Layton Giordani & Sam Paganini
Best New Techno Track: Digital Age EP - Layton Giordani
Layton Giordani has been on an absolute tear in the last year. From sets at the world's biggest festivals to mega releases like his recent remix with Adam Beyer of Sam Paganini's iconic "Rave." Layton Giordani is not slowing down. His first solo original release of the year comes in the form of a two-track EP titled Digital Age. Released on Adam Beyer's Drumcode, the EP brilliantly illustrates Layton's excellence. Once again, he proves his ability to craft big-room techno tracks that maintain a sense of originality.
Sam Paganini - Live at CRSSD Festival 2022
High-speed, high-energy Italian techno is just one way to describe the Sam Paganini sound. Effortlessly chic, and true techno maestro, he is a constant joy to watch on the decks. Always in complete control, his set at San Diego's waterfront music festival, CRSSD, further exemplifies the ingenuity and energy of the dancefloor destroying talent. Watch as he takes the crowd deeper than they thought possible while delivering one of the highlight sets of the weekend.
Sam Paganini - Prisma EP - 2012
Continuing our theme of Sam Paganini, his 2012 Prisma EP is only fitting as our throwback of the week. The Prisma EP marked his true transition into techno. After a few years of experimenting with house and tech house, this EP shows his proclivity for techno's deeper, harder sounds. Its release on Drumcode further exemplifies that Paganini is a singular talent and that his choice to fully dive into the world of techno was the right one.
