This week's techno chart is jam packed from top to bottom with bangers, jackers and stompers - including some of the genre's best, such as Pirupa, Paride Saraceni, and of course the techno don himself, Joey Beltram!
1. "BASEMENT (JOEY BELTRAM REMIX)" - KASALL & CRISTIAN R. [TENAMPA RECORDINGS]
Techno legend Joey Beltram provides an absolutely blistering refix of Argentinian duo Kasall & Christian R's "Basement" by applying a brooding yet melodic synth along with a syncopated, whip-like rhythm guaranteed to keep the revelers on the dance floor.
2. "NEXT MURDER" - LOWERZONE [ORANGE RECORDINGS]
Dutch imprint Orange Recordings has been relentlessly pumping out one massive tune after another, and Italian producer Lowerzone keeps the streak going with a brand new three-tracker that features this mammoth of a tune titled "Next Murder."
3. "FLUX" - LAUHAUS [OFF RECORDINGS]
This hypnotic acid tune from Amsterdam-based producer Lauhaus makes for perfect early morning warehouse fodder. Close your eyes and picture it now.
4. "ECLIPSE" - PIRUPA PRESENTS BRAIN ZOO [OCTOPUS RECORDINGS]
5. "TRIGONAL (D-NOX & BECKERS REMIX)" - THIRD SON [SELADOR]
Joe Price aka Third Son makes a triumphant return to the well-respected Selador imprint with a two-track release that features this contemporary techno rerub from rising stars D-Nox & Beckers!
6. "SHOELACES (TRUNCATE REMIX)" - JOSH WINK [BOYSNOIZE RECORDS]
Dance music legend Josh Wink makes a landmark premiere on Boysnoize Records with a throwback-style electro funk jam called "Shoelaces." The real winner of the package for me, though, is this jacking remix from L.A. techno producer Truncate.
7. "DU KNOW" - TOM FLYNN [INTO ORBIT]
Tech House producer Tom Flynn pushes the boundaries forward with this electro-tinged jacker titled "Du Know," out now via the Into Orbit imprint.
8. "OBSCURITE.CHNO (PARIDE SARACENI'S VOCAL INTERPRETATION)" - NOIR FT MONCE [NOIR MUSIC]
One of Noir's biggest tunes to date gets a second remix package which includes this ultra-sleek remix from one my favorite producers this year so far, Paride Saraceni!
9. "HALOGEN" - MIKE VATH & MARCO PIANGIAMORE [SKYNET RECORDS]
Skynet head honcho, Marco Piangiamore teams up with German producer Mike Vath for this hi octane party starter they've titled "Halogen."
10. "ORACLE" - BASTIAN BUX [SUARA]
Suara favorite Bastian Bux returns to the imprint for his third ever offering to them, which he's calling his most special work to date - especially the title track, which we think is quite special as well.
