Saturday should be called ‘Techno Day’. No other day suits it best. Saturday is the best day to listen to Techno, if I’m honest. I like waking up to the beats and basses that Techno has to offer, and I think I’ve found a wicked mix for you all to listen to on this sunny yet dreadful Saturday. A mix done by PUSHMANN, a DJ I’ve never heard of, but who I will follow from now on.

Naked Lunch, that sounds a bit wrong. Unless you are at a nudist beach and you are eating at a nearby restaurant, eating lunch in your Adam/Eve costume. Don’t know anything about Naked Lunch Records, but it turns out to be a very big label. A big label with a regular podcast being broadcasted via Soundcloud (at the moment they are at podcast 220, if I’m correct). For their 219th podcast they asked PUSHMANN to fabricate a nice Techno mix, and the result is really what you want to hear!

I might not know the label or the artist, but what I do know is that the tracks PUSHMANN has selected are amazing! Check it out, the tracklist is absolutely amazing!

There’s only a handful of artists I know, but who cares about my knowledge? It’s what the music does to you, and what it does it seriously good! PUSHMANN has made a wicked mix.

I’ve really enjoyed this mix, really what I was after. Mellow at certain points, and also dark when needed. This is really a wicked Techno mix, and most of us are fans of Techno anyway, so I would say to you that you should download this beauty right now, and let it entertain you as much as it entertained me.

I love the blend between the old and the new sound. Techno is timeless and with yet another brilliant Techno mix, it proves to me that Techno mixes are always the best, and I’ve never heard a bad mix. PUSHMANN’s mix is proof why Saturday’s should be called ‘Techno day’. I might not know the artist who made this mix, but I’m a fan.

Saturday? Check! Techno? Check! Wicked mix? Check!

Some DJs do need an introduction, some do need no introduction at all! One of those DJs is Joey Beltram, a pioneer from the early days! This man has done so much for music in general, it’s unbelievable. This man has shaped the scene with his pioneering music, and even to this day he keeps on pushing his love and dedication forwards, spreading his passion for music. When I grew up as a young lad during the 90s, Joey Beltram was there. He penetrated my eardrums with his tunes, and I would like to say thank you for making the 90s memorable.

Many DJs who were once great faded away, or sadly passed away. Not Joey Beltram, he keeps on doing what only he does best. And when it comes to Techno, only one can satisfy the people, and that is Joey. His music has obviously changed from quite ‘basic’ to well composed music. Back in the days it was all about Roland’s and Casio’s and Jupiters, but today it’s all about software and some hardware. Has that changed the strength of the music? Not really. It’s not how it’s made, it’s all about the impact it has on a crowd. And to me music is timeless, and I couldn’t care less if it was made on an old Mac PC, or a brand spanking new one. Music is music, and what Joey has created in the past is timeless!

He has made this mix for Transmissions, and is syndicated worldwide by Syndicast (never heard of that before?). And there’s also an added bonus: a nice tracklist. Feast your eyes on this beauty!

21. Boris – Can You Hear Me
22. Sian & Luigi Madonna – Royal Oak
23. Kaiserdisco – Bonkers

Seriously, after listening to this mix at least 10 times it proves to me again and again: during the 90s he was a superstar and he has never lost his touch! My God, this mix is tight! From the lighter side of Techno to the quite dark and edgy stuff!

In this section I would normally write something bad, but I can’t: it’s a mix by Joey Beltram, one of the world’s finest producers. He still knows how to get the people at home hyped up, and at the moment this 33 year old man is bopping his head and moving his body and feels like he’s 12 again, when he heard Joey Beltram for the first time.

My God, it’s good to see these pioneers being recognised for their contribution to music in general, and I reckon it will be one of the best played mixes of all time. Or at least the most enjoyed mix on Soundcloud ever. Name one mix better than this one? Name one! And don’t pick one because the DJ is your mate, pick one on quality. That’s right, you failed.

Joey Beltram, a pioneer, a legend, a superstar. And above all: a music lover.

This mix has made my birthday a very special one. So good, it’s frightening. This is quality, pure quality. Keep up the good work, mr Beltram, we salute you for your experience, knowledge and dedication. I will made sure that I’m dancing tonight, tomorrow and many days to come to this mix!

First and foremost, the next mix you are about to listen to is the weirdest and quirkiest one you’ve ever listened to! And another thing, if anyone has a clue who the hell TAFKAMP is, please let me know, because I am intrigued. Only recently discovered a mix by this man on Soundcloud (think it’s a man), and the introduction to this mix was amazing. If you want to know what it stands for, it means: the artist formally known as minister president. No joke, this is true. How amazing and insane it might sound, this is a name that will stick in your head for a very long time, the same applies to this mix.

Don’t ask me how I got to listen to this mix, found it by mistake. But what a mistake it was! It lead me to the dopest mix of the year. This mix is all about Techno, and it’s so diverse, it finally makes you wonder how big the Techno scene actually is, and what the music actually stands for. Normally a mix would be properly divided, but with this mix it ain’t so. TAFKAMP played whatever appeared on a disc in front of him. I can say that this quirkiness is quite appealing, and even though I have never heard of this man before, it’s a name which will be written down in my ‘Hello Kitty’ diary.

I asked for a tracklist on Soundcloud, turned out it was already uploaded onto another page. So it’s time for me share it with you, because your mouth will drop, and you will dribble like Homer J. Simpson.

tracklist

01. Overcast – Cyst Sandwich
02. Schmerzlabor – Car Audio Test Track
03. Kraftwerk – It’s More Fun To Compute
04. Unit Moebius – Beat That Percolator
05. T-Bone Castro – Hilltop Hustler (I’m The One & Only)
06. Altern-8 – Move My Body (Hard Hardcore Mix) 
07.  The Mover – Waves Of Life
08. TAFKAMP – Nothingness
09. The Mover – The Emperor Takes Place
10. TAFKAMP – Trauner
11. Fast Money – One $
12. Terrace – Untitled (83)
13. The Horrorist – Mission Ecstacy
14. TAFKAMP – Fictief
15. Terrace – Trance Xpress
16. Fallbeil – Brutal Ignorant
17. Muslimgauze – Untitled 1985
18. Hibbem Soundsystem – High Coos (Alternate Studio Mix) 
19. Kraftwerk – Numbers
20. Bierkoerier – High Have It
21. Legowelt – Electro Race
22. LFO – Whistle While You Jerk
23. Synthadelic – I’m A Secretary
24. DJ Pierre – Box Energy (AFX 2 Remix) 
25. Unknown Artist – Countdown FFM V
26. Bald Terror – Rotterdam
27. Signs Of Chaos – Killout 3

From oldskool to the new skool. This is a masterful mix by one of the weirdest artists in the industry. But he’s worth it, TAFKAMP is one amazing DJ. This set should prove it why he’s a name you have to follow.

The mix is tight, not standard, but different. The build up is different, the intro is weird, but come on, isn’t this what we all want to hear? Those standard mixes can be quite annoying, and for once we have found a mix we can all go nuts to. TAFKAMP has selected and mixed together a few brilliant tracks. From Rave to Techno, you will find everything and anything you want to hear in this mix.

I am quickly amazed by mixes, but this one caught my attention, but only after I’ve heard this mix I had a moment for myself and sat behind my computer, staring at the screen, thinking about what I’ve just witnessed. This is truly astonishing, breathtakingly beautiful.

I need more Techno mixes like this one, and I am on a quest now to find more mixes like this one.

What’s my favourite track? Bald Terror – Rotterdam. I’m not from Rotterdam, but I’m liking this as much as someone from Rotterdam.

TAFKAMP, whoever or whatever you are, you are a hero. Never become dull, stay the way you are!

It’s a known fact that I do love a wide variety of music, and you can not call yourself a music lover if you do not like and love Techno music. It’s the Grandfather of every style, it’s the sound that generated new generations. It created dreams and memories which will last us mankind for a lifetime. Techno is our past, present and future, and if you find a mix made by the Filth Infatuated DJs, you are in for a treat. They know how to play Techno, and play it well.

Time does fly by after you’ve pressed play. This is yet another outstanding mix by the Filth Infatuated DJs, but to be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything less than extraordinary. They have produced some extraordinary mixes in the past, which are still on my phone to this day (can’t take them off, my journey would become so dull if I can’t listen to Techno music). It’s obvious that I had to share this slamming promo mix they’ve made for No Man’s Land the Festival. To be honest, if it ain’t on Soundcloud, it will be difficult to find. But eh, you’ve got me, the music lover, blogger, sharer, etc.

In 8 days time the festival takes place, and the line-up is crazy to say the least: not a standard line-up if I’m honest, but diversity is what counts. 2 Bad Mice, Ace Ventura, A*S*Y*S, Aries, Far Too Loud, Cassetteboy, and more. I have never been, but I reckon the event is all about harmony and peace and tranquility. But also about bringing diversity into people’s lives, and to play at such an event is always a nice gesture towards mankind: sharing your love and passion with others. Filth Infatuated DJs will be there too, and because they are, they made a stunning promo mix!

tracklist

01. Brolax Bones – The Next Place
02. Smith & King – Sperc
03. Steel Grooves – Prong
04. Tawa Girl – Manipulation
05. Planet Of Drums – Acid Over LA (Trax-X vs Sinesweeper Mix) 
06. DJ Link – Kom 2 Papi
07. Kev D – Every Sort Of Filth (Rydel Remix) 
08. Taigo Onez – Fade To Black
09. Chinaski – Primary
10. Wetworks – Heartrate (Patrick DSP Mix) 
11. OB1 – This Is Why
12. John Rowe – Come Get Some!

14. Auto Sound City – Titled 3
15. Dario Dep & LasaWers – Unexpected Blow
16. Hell Driver – Troublemaker

A fantastic tracklist, if you do appreciate Techno music. If you do, welcome to the club, and join the madness. This is absolutely mind blowing, the sheer power behind each track is outstanding! This is really a  good promo mix to showcase what people should expect at No Man’s Land. Hurry up and get tickets, just to see these guys!

A proper Techno/Acid House mix. Loving it, got no other words for it. The tone has been set, from the first to the last second it’s just amazing beats, basses and melodies (well….) flying towards you. I’ve immediately downloaded this, just to make sure that my car journey tomorrow will be a pleasant one. Christ, this is filth, but in a good way!

One of the finest mixes of the year, and I haven’t heard many Techno mixes so far. Time to hear more Techno/Acid House mixes, you can never have too much of it! Filth Infactuated DJs, you’ve done it again! Thank you!

Catch them at No Man’s Land! You should!
