Hello Magnetic Magazine readers! Are you ready for the top 10 techno selections this week? As always, I have been digging until my fingers bleed to find the hottest new techno for all of you. As I listened to all of the selections I couldn’t help but imagine how they are going to rock the crowds in Miami in a few weeks. Hell, I am sure they will all ignite the dancefloor wherever they are played. So strap in for this week’s edition of the top techno chart!
“Chasing Autumns (Riva Starr Raw Cut)”
Taras Van De Voorde
Riva Starr understands that in order to be a DJ that truly stands out from the rest, you have to create some of your own edits. Lucky for us he has decided to give us a taste of some of his hottest edits on his latest release on Saved, Raw Edits Vol. 1. This number is a classic stomper. It has great piano work, saved from the original, but the energy comes in faster and some effects have been added for maximum mind manipulation. It is definitely worth keeping this one in your back pocket to drop at a peak hour.
Cleric just released the second installment of his double-whammy release on Figure, Scattered Thoughts Part 2. The old school glichy/blippy stab reminds me of sounds off a Super Nintendo while the polished new school drums, percussion, and effects back it up.
This is a clean minimal techno track from Matador off his follow up EP out now on Minus, Play With Me Part 2. All of the elements stack on top of each other while the steady synth stab playfully switches its notes and pattern.
Stefano Noferini and Hollen
You can always depend on Deeperfect to release some fine techno. Stefano Noferini and Hollen step up for a single release that is a pure techno roller. The whole track is loaded with sharp synth stabs, deep echoing vocal samples, and a rolling bass line that will move you on the dancefloor.
You are going to want to strap in for this one. The grimy, acidic bass and warping effects sound like a time machine engine powering up. The amount of energy packed in this track is enough to allow travel through time and space.
“Overtown” is one of the many dope selections made by Chus and Ceballos for the Stereo Productions Present Miami 2015 compilation, out now on Stereo Productions. Patrick M delivers a tech house groover that is perfect for the beaches of Miami. With the mellow vocal sample and a hard sub kick it has a deep vibe that is going to go well with the feeling of sand between your toes.
“Let Me Tell”
I love the deep bass and shuffling percussion on this track. The vocal samples give it great hyped up energy. I like what Mancino has to tell, you should also have a listen.
Out now on Adam Beyer’s Truesoul imprint, “Oblivion”, is a deep and dark and minimal tech house tune. Okain uses a simple organ stab and squeaky bass in a nice call and response pattern. The breakdown is full of echoing goodness to get you floating over the dancefloor before the drop slams you back down.
The ninth installment of Toolroom’s Rhythm Distrikt series is out now and it has 10 dope tracks ready to make you move. This selection is from Ron Costa. It’s minimal with a nice roll to it. The hollow metallic response to the high clicking percussion gives a nice balance. It’s great for just relaxing and for getting down at the club.
Tom Hades & Kostas Maskalides
This track hits the ground running and roars non-stop like a V12 engine. The Loleatta Holloway vocal sample cuts through the beat and is warped and chopped for maximum energy. It will get everyone in the crowd’s head spinning and feet moving.
Below is the entire playlist for your enjoyment. I will see you all next week for another top techno chart!
