If you love techno, ADRA is a name to know. Fresh off of her first release, Fear is the Mind Killer, the San Francisco based ADRA is blessing Magnetic Magazine with a podcast not soon to be forgotten. You are going to get lost in deep space, and you are going to love it.
She knows what she is doing when she is in the mix, and she really knows what she is doing when it comes to her original productions, so you are in for one hell of a tasty techno treat!
I won't mince words and waste anymore time, if you love techno, Adra's mix is one you definitely need to know!
I also was lucky enough to volley a few questions at the amazing ADRA, and here is what she hit back!
Is there a theme to this mix? If so, can you elaborate on what that theme is exactly?
It's placed in the future, planet earth is dying. Aliens are arriving as we turn to our machines for help.
Who is ADRA?
Space traveler specializing in Extraterrestrial Communications
What do you hope people take away from your music?
Darker feelings of emotion. More serious thoughts about this planet we live on.
What is techno to you?
It's the past, the future. It's this moment right now
Jeff Mills once said, "[Techno] wasn't designed be dance music, it was designed to be a futurist statement." Do you agree with Mr. Mills? What do you think Techno is supposed to be?
I absolutely agree with Mr.Mills. Techno isn't "supposed" to be anything.
Techno just is. It's a beautiful artistic platform to deliver very forward thinking. It's not for everyone because of the serious nature it carries. It's a genre of music that is quite beyond being "dance music".
When can we expect more ADRA music?
Originally I was planning to release an EP this month. However, I have a lovely modulator synthesizer my partner gifted me recently. So I'm starting fresh because the machine has truly inspired me; by the New Year.
What are some words that we, good music lovers, should live by?
Think deep space.
What is one deep thought you have been having lately?
I pretend and meditate viewing our planet from space as a small working cell.
What have you been listening to lately?
My modulator synthesizer.
