The latest mix is up: a showcase for Reddit’s own Techno sub series titled “Frontex”. Hear it first here on my personal soundcloud, the actual episode goes live in a week or so and will be updated here.
Frontex is a collective founded by members of various dance music discussion boards from around the world. They aim to push less known, talented names into the spotlight and to help DJ’s and producers get some traction among peers online. Based in the UK, Frontex sources talent from around the globe in order to chase a true underground sound. Featuring a variety of flavors – from industrial, to acid, to atmospheric and deep hypnotic techno, there is something for everyone within their series.
I aimed to create a bit of a journey with this set, starting with a slower ambient vibe, eventually moving into atmospheric sounds from Affin, slowly transitioning to an edgier Soma-esque warehouse sound, and finally finishing off with a few chart topping progressive sounds at around 131 bpm. All fresh tracks! This is my first internet release outside of my personal circle of friends, and I will be looking to push more of these out to the masses in the future to try and help generate some interest online before making a move to launch our local series. Feedback is always welcome via email, or soundcloud comment/dm.
