mnml ssgs mx34: traversable wormhole
what do i like about 2009? techno is exciting again. no question about it. with a bit of luck we might just be witnessing the start of a techno renaissance... one label that has been contributing to this resurgence is traversable wormhole. i was interested as soon as i saw boomkat's description of the A side of vol. 1 as sounding like 'marcel dettmann in a jack-off with monolake and ancient methods'. and that's a pretty good take on it. the first 2 EPs are some of the best techno i've heard in 2009 and i am eagerly awaiting vol. 3 to arrive in tokyo record stores (it was released last week).
as soon as i got my hands on these EPs, i knew it fitted perfectly with the ssg sound. and sure enough, the mix traversable wormhole did for us is exactly what i hoped/expected: serious headfuck techno. the mix is defined by its raw, powerful feel; brimming with energy and vitality. exactly what techno should be. i have a feeling this will definitely bend a few heads...
mnml ssgs mx34: traversable wormhole - through the wormhole mix
massive thanks to traversable wormhole for delivering a top notch mix, and to the person who helped to get us connected. there is a traversable wormhole myspace and, as i said, keep an eye out for traversable wormhole vol. 3, which has just dropped. that's all for now, tracklisting to follow. better turn off the lights and pull out the strobe light again. headfuck techno time!
