Week four is here!

For this edition, I did some digging into my shelves in order to do a fourth edition of my Morally Diminished series of house/techno mixes. For this specific mix I wanted to (mostly) explore that inflection point where electro met techno, in contract to previous editions, which focused more on tech-house and funky techno.

Make no mistake, this is a techno mix – I wouldn’t say that it is a pure electro mix at all, by any stretch of the imagination. If you want to hear some electro, then I would recommend checking out Drop The Hammer 5. However, this is definitely an electro-techno mix, or at least it contains a lot of tracks from the early 2000’s that feature chunky snares, robotic voices and general electro buzzery. Eventually this sound would get co-opted by commercial house producers, who would inflict on the world untold amounts of god-awful electro house.

But that doesn’t mean that these tunes suck!

Far from it … if anything, I hope that this mix can remind people that electro vibes when applied to a 4/4 formula can yield some tasty results.

Having said all of that, this mix isn’t purely about electro influences – I’ve also included some nice melodic techno tunes for your enjoyment.

So that’s it!

Not much else to say, hope you enjoy the mix, and check back next week for more …
