Exclusive: Blasted

Its time for another exclusive! Blasted is a hard track with all of the ingredients I like in my techno.  Groovy kicks, crispy hats, dark metalic samples and vocal stabs.  If you remember the track Dirty Yellow (covered here a few weeks ago) the shuffled hi-hat should sound familiar, very likely since its was sampled ...

Handcuffs and Raspberries

Not sure what I can say about this one. Its a weird, barely finished concoction from ’03. Aside from mangled beats it also features a few samples from John Cage’s Prepared Piano. The plan was to put those to better use at some point, but that still hasn’t happened. If the title makes no sense ... Read More

Barrel Bottom

Barrel Bottom is a fun track that took a while to get to sound right, and I’m still not totally happy with the final cut. However, the groovy beat and catchy synth riff earned it a spot on an Alek Biotic record released on the French ExtraBall label and featuring three other tracks including the title track: ...

Dirty Yellow

Dirty Yellow was released on the German imprint PlanetNatus in 2004.  The label, run by Robert Natus features a collection of “Favorite Tools” records, with this track appearing on the first such release along with tracks by Bjorn Bommersheim, DJ Mahatma as well as Robert himself.  A well-rounded hard techno release, Favorite Tools is available ...

Ego Programme

Ego Programme is an experimental track from ’04. It combines IDM and Drum n’ Bass elements into a complex and trippy arrangement which stands alone in the Montaz/Biotic catalog. Inspired by the sound of Squarepusher and Funckarma/Quench, the track features a variety of mangled beat chunks and even some orchestral elements, played using a (since ... Read More

Middleman

Middleman appeared on Bazooka10 label’s first EP, along with the title track: G-Lock.  If this label sounds familiar, its because another Biotic track (Ghost, covered here already) appeared on a Bazooka10 compilation as well. The track itself is a pretty early work (#21 in fact) and was produced in 2001. While the raw production shows ... Read More

Overtone

This just might be the biggest Dopevector release yet(!), and I’m thrilled to make it available in source format.  Overtone is a remix of a track by the same name, but since I like it so much better than the original, it basically won over the title.  The track was scheduled for release on the ...

Alek Biotic Delivers a Brand New Live Mix: Present Day

In case you haven’t noticed, for the first time on trak.fm the Production and Posted On dates on this release are the same. That can mean only one thing. A brand, spankin’ new release! That’s right. Read on and check it out. Compiling, mixing and recording sets can be a long and exhaustive process. But as ... Read More

Triage

Triage is a techno track from ’04.  If my memory serves me right, the bass line was played using the sweet Imposcar synth.  And since I’m a little short on time today, I’m going to leave it at that.  Wave download is included.  Enjoy. Download: Triage (mp3) Download: Triage (wav)... Read More

Anathema

Anathema was released on Gotham Grooves in 2005 on the Various Villains: Volume 2 record, which also featured tracks by Agent Orange, Adam Jay and Noah Pred.  As mentioned in the previous post on Sativa, the two tracks are closely related and follow a similar sound pattern.  The second of the two, Anathema is the ...
