What’s On My iPodApril 15, 2008
A lot of TECHNO, really.
Classic Detroit techno from Juan Adkins AKA Cybotron AKA Model 500. This is the shit I grew up on. The Electrifying Mojo (an eccentric Detroit radio DJ from the 80s) mixed this stuff with 10 minute versions of Kraftwerk and early, and I mean EARLY Prince.
Ddog is just now delving into this genre and he’s loving it.
Model 500- Nightdrive (thru Babylon) (click to download MP3)
Since I mentioned Mojo you gotta take a listen to one of his show intros. Can’t believe the stuff people post on the net:
I don’t know much about them, but this is a killer track from The Touch courtesy of Palms Out Sounds.
This is definitely NOT techno but it’s on constant rotation- it’s Northern California’s Port O’Brien.
Port O’Brien- I Woke Up Today from The Wind and the Swell in 2007.
Port O Brien – Close The Lid from All We Could Do Was Sing due out May 13.
And what would this post be without some reggae? From the Full Attention riddim, Here’s lover’s rock singer Pam Hall.
