What’s On My iPod

April 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.
