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!

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!

Many years ago I had the chance to see Green Velvet play, and I did. But it has been many years ago, time has flown by since. I think it was Innercity 2000, which happened 16 years ago?! What the actual fuck? I can remember the event like it was yesterday, it took place at the Amsterdam Rai, and the music in each area was excellent, but it was like walking around in a big maze! Christ, the location was immense. But memorable it was indeed. I remember Green Velvet well, seeing as he shouted so loud through the microphone, and he had what looked like pegs/clothespins on his head.  16 years ago, time has flown by.

On Soundcloud you can follow the man, and I did when I discovered he was on there. And his Soundcloud is filled with awesome music, a lot of podcasts, and each of them has had thousands of plays, which is obvious: who doesn’t like Techno? Eminem was wrong, everyone listens to Techno! His latest podcast was only uploaded 3 days ago and already 11.9k+ plays, that’s impressive. During this podcast he doesn’t scream of say a single word, he just lets the music talk. And the music is good.

Someone uploaded a tracklist, seeing as this mix didn’t have one. I reckon it’s correct, and if it isn’t, it ain’t my fault!

tracklist

01. Get Real – Snuggaluffagas
02. Bas Ibellini – Elef Be
03. Oscar L – Output
04. Summer & Swift – Coulees (Green Version) 
05. Genghis Clan – Crave Me
06. Marc B – Trois
07. Hervey McKay – The Mad Drummer
08. Get Real – Mind Yo Bizness

The tracklist is short, the mix is short but it’s very powerful. Techno still rules the world, and that’s a fact!

Green Velvet (with or without pegs) still has the power to get people moving. 16 years ago I danced the night away, and witnessed a lot of awesome things, but I also got lost several times at the Rai. Today I was lost too, lost in the music. Each and every track Green Velvet has selected is awesome, and is a mood changer. The weather might be crap outside and we are all inside with the heating on, but for once you do not need the heater on: you will start dancing and raving, and your body temperature will go up, way up.

30 minutes of madness, and I’m loving it. Techno the way it should be. Dark and edgy, no mucking about. Lovely sounding Techno, which proves to the world that Techno ain’t going nowhere, it’s here and it will stay. Wonderful mix by the Green Velvet, and worth checking out. Unless you like Eminem, but who listens to Eminem? No one, we all listen to Techno!

Awesome mix. Only good music. Only one score:

A couple of months ago I found a mix on Soundcloud which was made by the same man who made this brand new mix: Olivier Abbeloos. The man who was responsible for shaping the 90s into this beautiful thing, who lives and breathes oldskool music. His previous mix was focussed on his own productions, from 1988 to 1996, but this mix isn’t, it’s more focussed on the early Techno tracks from 86-88, mainly from Detroit and Chicago, and we all know that Detroit is the city in which Techno was born. A dedication mix you might call this, and if you love that kind of music, sit back and relax: press play and let yourself go!

Not many oldskool sets can be found on Soundcloud, most mixes are filled with brand new tracks, so when you do find a proper oldskool one, it can make your day even better. This mix has, and according to Soundcloud I was the first one listening to it (which I highly doubt), and I think it’s time for you to indulge yourself into this wonderful world we all grew up with. These oldskool tunes made this decade unique and refreshing, and shaped the future. They were unaware of what they started when they came up with Techno, and in all honesty if they haven’t pushed this sound forward, the Dance scene would be completely different, or would not have existed. We owe everything to Techno music, and with this mix we can listen to those wonderful productions which shaped the scene into this force people should watch out for.

Olivier’s mix is tight, really tight, and the tracks he has selected are amazing! Worth checking out!

tracklist

01. Model 500 – No Ufo’s
02. Rhythim Is Rhythim – Move It
03. Reese & Santonio – How To Play Our Music
04. Intercity – Groovin’ Without A Doubt
05. Da Posse – Strings
06. Model 500 – Off To Battle
07. Seperate Minds – First Bass
08. X-Ray – Let’s Go
09. Reese & Santonio – Force Field
10. Blake Baxter – Forever And A Day
11. Paradise Inc – House Music Control
12. The Children – Work The Box
13. Phuture – Spank Spank
14. Neal Howard – Perpetual Motion
15. L.n.r. – Kream

The mix is tight, I told you. The tracks are all amazing, even thought I haven’t heard most of them. You have to remember I was only 3 years old in 1986, and the only thing I listened to, were cassettes filled with Abba and Barry White music, nothing Techno-ish at all. Never too late to learn, never too late to hallucinate, eh?

There are so many dope tracks in this mix, quite intoxicating! Once you’ve pressed play there’s no stopping it, the music keeps on coming. An hour will fly by with ease, and after it has finished, the first thing you do is press play again. Olivier has made a very interesting and groovy mix, worth checking out.

Best track? Gosh, that was difficult. I like them all, but ‘Perpetual Motion’ deserves my full attention, seeing as it’s such a dope track. You don’t hear tracks like this one anymore, so powerful and real dancefloor material. This is what got ravers onto the dancefloor and rave the night away!

Olivier is a hero. Why? Well, many reasons, but to me the main reason is him posting mixes every so often onto his Soundcloud page, keeping the oldskool alive. Where would we be without early Techno/House? Exactly, nowhere!!!

If you are unaware who VKTR is, and you didn’t recognise him from the picture above this review, you are not into Terror music. It’s obviously a project that DJ Smurf started. Yes, it’s DJ Smurf’s Techno side. Who doesn’t recognise his funny looking face? The face that made him famous. Nope, it’s not his music that drew peoples attention, it’s his face. The man who normally provides us with banging Terror music has given us a brand new mix, filled with the darkest, nastiest and toughest Techno there is. Let me warn you, this mix ain’t for those who can’t handle darkness in music.

Don’t let this man’s face scare you off, or make you believe that this is a funny Techno mix. This is proper stuff, professional, no mucking about. This is what DJ Smurf a.k.a. VKTR does best. When I first pressed play I was shocked to hear the result: a mix that blew my mind away! After hearing it, I presumed that this mix wasn’t done by VKTR but by Mark EG’s darker alter ego Mark Anxious! This is quality, haven’t heard a mix this good in a long time!

I do like Smurf, but I’d rather hear more VKTR stuff. This man is on fire! You have to give the DJ all the credits for fabricating such a wonderful mix, which will leave you breathless. It makes you think about Techno’s greatness and impact, and how unf**kingbelievably gorgeous it is. Techno is so important to music lovers, and VKTR’s mix is proof why it’s still one of the greatest styles ever created by mankind.

Wow! What a sick mix! This is absolutely mind blowing! Never knew that Smurf… I mean VKTR could make such an excellent mix! This has blown my mind away since it was uploaded onto Soundcloud.

After hearing it the first time I couldn’t stop myself. I nearly soiled myself. I had to listen to it again and again. And I have. People were asking me what I was listening to (at work) and I had to promote this wonderful mix. Don’t know if they have actually downloaded this, but they should have (why ask who did this mix?).

VKTR is a name we should all remember. His name should appear on the Techno 100 list, because this mix is probably the best one you will hear in 2015.

I can’t pick one favourite, they are all good! No joke, 25 amazing tracks in one amazing mix. I’m not kidding at all. Download this right now, and go nuts. I have, and now I need to change my underpants. VKTR’s mix has made me moist. Very moist.
