There’s a point where tech house meets techno (or the lighter side of techno) and I get really confused on definitions. Although I know the less-pedantic amongst you would yell ‘who cares???’.
Still, the pedant in me yearns to call this techno, at least in structure if not in song. The building in the mix happens at the percussive level and the tracks drift in as layers. It’s smooth yet muscular.
OK, enough of that. With appearances from Will Saul, Tim Sheridan, Dirty Vegas and D Ramirez himself, I urge you to don some headphones and freak out to this.
Thanks to Dancefloor Mayhem for the mix and tracklisting.
