Technix 045By Jon Nix On
This mix is deep, dark, stomping tech house.
I've blended in some Afro House (it's a thing, it has it's own genre tag on Beatport and everything) and Middle Eastern vibes to create a exotic, steamy and sultry mix that has an air of mystery. It also chugs along nicely, making this one of the more energetic and driving Technix for a while.
Highlights include the wicked computerised vocal (I bloody love one of those) on the Kraftwerk-go-to-Ibiza "My Computer" from Adana Twins and Glowal, the striking marimba melody on, um, "Marimba" by Denis Agamirov & Stylezz and the incredible "Karma" from Space Motion. What a striking, fresh track this is - all Imperial storm-trooper synths topped off with piano and Afro House vibes.
I normally ease off towards the end but this powers through, with some big vocal tracks. Laura Rogalli's vocal on Sugar Hill's "Empire" is particularly killer, Chus & Ceballo's remix of David's Morales' "One Race" is pure uplifting tribal energy and Simon Liberali & Jinadu's "Landslide" evokes wistful memories of a Balearic dance-floor lost in time.
