mnml ssgs mx21: cio d'or
as many readers know, cio 'dor is a big favourite with the ssgs. her carefully crafted mixes have been on constant repeat, and the 'aroma' ep she released with paul brtschitsch was one of the best records of 2008. we are very happy she has been able to contribute a mix, as her approach to DJ'ing reflects exactly what we are trying to do with this mix series: unique, special artists digging deep and producing mixes that strongly reflect their sound and their personalities. the aim is not simply another mp3 to be deleted next week, but something that will last. and this is what cio has done: a distinctive and powerful mix of deep techno sounds. as per the standard format, we'll post the tracklisting along with an interview next week. just to give you a taste, though, the mix does have some unreleased cuts, including from a new ep by cio and donato dozzy. it is coming out in may on time to express, peter van hoesen's label which is going from strength to strength.
enough talking, on to the mix. the sound cio is playing - what we call headfuck/mindfuck techno - is what really excites me these days. stripped back, elemental techno at its very best...
