Feast your ears on this robotic funk assault
This heavy hitting mix consists of 17 electro tracks from 1980 to 2010. Featuring Afrika Bambaataa who ascended to godfather status with Planet Rock, the 82′ hip-hop classic which blended the beats of hip-hop with techno-pop futurism inspired by German pioneers Kraftwerk.
It was difficult to single out a track by Keith Tenniswood, all of the tracks on his Booby Trap LP are just as wicked as they were in 2003. Ed DMX is still holding true with his signature pumping electro beats under the ‘Computor Rockers’ moniker. I had to include The Advent, who is still one of my biggest influences, I mixed every track from ‘Time Trap Technik’ until the grooves were no more. Cisco’s ‘Electra Fix’ is the kind of laser precision techno electro monster I’ll be listening to in 20 years time.
It was an honour to include Ireland’s greatest export and electro mastermind ‘Decal’. He’s always been a great supporter and influence for Invisible Agent Records. We were delighted to have him release on 12″ for us with his ‘Look so fine’ EP which I’m keeping for another upcoming mix. Still on an I.A roll I enjoyed laying down Chymera’s 12″ on Invisible Agent entitled ‘icicle’ followed by Corrugated Tunnel’s ‘WestJam’. The mix is finally topped off by the true creators Kraftwerk.
