Exclusive Video Set: Alek Biotic and PS11 Live at DownShift Radio

DJ Eleven and Preston Space, aka the acid techno tag team PS11 had a weekly Sunday School show on DownShiftRadio.com – the original NYC dance music podcast! I was fortunate enough to join them on a couple of occasions and will now subject you to the video recording of the first of those.  Apologies for ... Read More

Exclusive: Balkan Express

Balkan Express is a 2002 effort with a driving groove which earns it its name. The track has a very clean, unprocessed quality and would probably benefit from either further post-production or just plain old loudness(!), so keep that in mind when listening. High quality wav is once again available.  Enjoy. [Audio clip: view full ... Read More

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 ...

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

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

Exclusive: Kill By Inches – Stylin’ (Live)

We’re going all the way back to 1997, to Electric Plant Studios somewhere deep in Brooklyn for a live Kill By Inches session with Shane and Tommy on vocals. Joining the two were Kevin Oriol on bass, Steve Papa on drums and Alex Kolundzija on guitar, with Vin Cin producing the mix. Stylin’ was a unique ... Read More

Exclusive: Preston Space presents Time4Machine

My old friend Matt contacted me the other day asking if I had a copy of Preston Space’s Time4Machine. (We haven’t heard from Preston in years and I haven’t listened to this, his first official mix in almost as long.) So I dug into the “archives” and was thrilled to find it. I even found ...

Exclusive: Rough Cut

Rough Cut is a hard techno track with a driving motive and thick groove. What I always liked about it is that it “grew” organically, much on its own with me just adding some water, so to speak. Much of the filtering was performed live and the final mix was initially considered the rough cut, ... Read More

Incognito

Incognito is an old housey track.  It was produced in 2002 and almost got released on New York’s Gotham Grooves label shortly after the release of Funk Matter EP (which came up a couple of months ago in this post), but I forget why it never made it out.  The artwork on the left was ... Read More
