Those of you that have been following the blog for a while will know that we're big fans of the Berlin party throwers that call themselves Dystopian, so when they uploaded a 2 1/2 hour mix from one of the their residents, Rødhåd, we knew it was going to make for a special afternoon's listening.
The mix is a live recording of his set at the Nation Of Gondwana festival, in Berlin last July, and covers what feels like the entire history of techno. You can download or stream the mix from the soundcloud player below

We've just discovered a new label coming out of Berlin entitled Stallion. Distributed by Hardwax, it's an anonymous project of uncompromising techno. The first EP contains 4 tracks on the vinyl with an additional 2 locked grooves. Comprising of tough basslines, furious percussion, piercing stabs, industrial overtones and drifting melodies.Tthere's a dancefloor weapon for all occasions. Check out the samples below
The EP is available in all the good record stores and we expect it won't be available digitally, so wax is your only option. This might not be about for long though, juno has already sold out so don't hesitate in grabbing this one.
