three technos

it's nice and sunny this weekend in chicago - perfect opportunity to open the windows and bug the neighbors with loud weird techno! anyway, here's a trio of mixes that have been on recent repeat.

patrick walker - unseen extracts 01 an exciting new prospect from patrick walker, of forward strategy group (remember his anatomy mix?). in edinburgh, scotland, patrick has launched a new and very intriguing monthly party alongside fellow local neil templar. it's called unseen, and the focus will be on "pitch black techno" - fucking sweet. anyway patrick has cooked up this excellent mix to start a series in support of the party and its guests - even better. local heads, be sure to get to the next unseen party on friday, june 1st, featuring a live set from adam x as traversable wormhole. full support! and of course, FSG's excellent debut album labour division will drop at the end of the month, so be on the lookout for that one.

regis at HOG's 19th birthday that's right, we're keeping it in the UK for this post. bam, here's a live set from the legendary regis, recorded at house of god's 19th birthday party in birmingham earlier this year. included in the set are classic regis jams alongside more recent stuff for sandwell district, blackest ever black and CUB... so just do it.

dj skirt - vinyl mix may 2012 more birmingham talent! skirt is just a bit newer to the scene (and a US native) but no worries, she's definitely an artist to keep an eye out for, i think, with recent inspiring efforts on labels like horizontal ground and semantica. she's also got skills behind the decks, as evidenced by this very nice vinyl mix. lots of tracks from shifted and avian, FSG, and two very nice new records worth pointing out: lakker's arc EP, and a new surface ltd release from francesco baudazzi (obtane!). skirt will be playing at a plex vs perc trax showcase in london on sunday, june 3rd, alongside perc, kangding ray, AnD, and others. pay attention...

that's all for now, but i should finally have anatomy 19 ready to go early next week. and so far it looks like i'll have a few more fun mixes for the summer, so stay tuned.
