29acid3 – Helena Hauff

25 July 2017

Women in techno are a hot topic at the moment within a scene that for years has been dominated by men. One thing that still remains true as more and more women join the ranks that blatant misogyny becomes more vocal.

Coven – Fabrice Torricella

18 July 2017

Currently I’ve been putting a lot of focus on the 90s in the playlist because I feel it was really such an important time for the underground sound. Not only was it when I personally got into the music, it was also a time where Europe really helped to propel it into the limelight.

The Melody – Joey Beltram

11 July 2017

This week I decided I wanted to dig a little deeper into some of the great techno classics from the earlier days of techno. Immediately Joey Beltram came to mind, one of the early heroes of techno, his most famous track “Energy Flash” continues to be a staple in many DJ sets today. 

How Are We Doing? – D’Marc Cantu

4 July 2017

As I quickly approach the seventeen-year mark of being a DJ I often look back at my musical evolution and find myself rediscovering old favorites that I hadn’t forgotten but they were just stored away on the shelves of the musical library in my mind….

Mad Poet – Cari Lekebusch

27 June 2017

When I first started listening to house and techno in the 90s, I was lucky enough to have the Internet to help me to discover new music. During that time the Internet was still relatively new  to everybody and I remember when Napster first came out and it changed my life,…

Veil Enchantress – Öona Dahl

20 June 2017

This week it’s my absolute pleasure to feature my dear friend Öona Dahl on the Music To Go Underground playlist. Öona and I met back in San Francisco in 2012 a long over due meeting since we lived three times in the same states and knew all the same people. A chance meeting on Facebook of all places would bring us to meet in person for the very first time.

Ami – Adra

13 June 2017

Every week I share with you all stories throughout my journey as a raver and DJ that includes music that inspires me on this path. However this week I’ve decided to share with you all something even closer to home by presenting you a track from my label Occultists. 

Vinyl Speed Adjust – Midnight Runner

7 June 2017

Always on the hunt from fresh music to play in my DJ sets, I find myself rediscovering some old favorites all the time and being reminded of their immense talent. There are very few artists who seem to keep up their momentum up by making solid releases time after time. I can safely say that Vinyl Speed Adjust from the Romania capital of Bucharest always seem to get it right. True masters of the Romanian sound I constantly find myself putting their records in my bag for pretty much all of my gigs.

When people hear about the Berlin based techno club Berghain, they automatically make a connection with techno and hedonism. However many might not know that apart from being a club they also have a very successful record label called Ostgut Ton. The label has produced high quality techno releases for over 10 years and has become a staple for many techno DJs around the world. The label named after the original club that would birth Berghain is an outlet where the club residents can present their artistic vision.

Move – Cassy

23 May 2017

When I first heard Cassy back in my Miami days in the outdoor area of the Electric Pickle, a downtown staple of house and techno in the city I wasn’t expecting much.  The name was very familiar to me as I had heard of her before during my early love affair with Germany’s booming electronic music scene. Having actually never heard her DJ before I had very low expectations as I wasn’t the hugest fan of house music at the time.

I was a techno purist in the beginning of my electronic music journey and house music was the last thing on my mind. However I truly became a fan of Cassy that day. She absolutely blew my mind rocking a solid two-hour all vinyl set that ended up not being strictly house music. Cassy had a few techno tricks up her sleeve and after that day Cassy became one of my all time favorite DJs.
