The case of the Mystery Techno Mix



Hello all, Mike here. Today I have a treat for techno afficionados (but maybe not much else for those of you who don’t like repetitive beats as much). I’ve been sitting on this mix for a year or two now, and God knows it’s probably been doing the rounds for a lot longer than that. Nevertheless, I don’t think I can keep it a relative secret for much longer; relative because some of you might already know, love or hate it. It’s short and sweet; 20 odd minutes that cram in 15 or so tunes, pretty much all of which are hard as nails. Personal favourite moments include 5:40 and 10.00.

How I came into possession of it, where it came from and who mixed it, all remain a mystery. Nevertheless, whoever did mix it made use of those fancy pioneer dj mixers, judging by the breaks between tracks. If any of you do know who mixed it (i’ve read on some forums that it could be random dj Nigel Richards or even Jeff Mills or Carl Cox – unlikely), or can identify any of the tunes, or have any positive remarks, feel free to comment below. If on the other hand you are the crash victim of a ’97 honda civic with spoiler, alloys and go-faster stripes playing this mix, likewise, don’t hesitate to vent your spleen right below.
