Here are the albums, mixes and EPs we were feeling in September.
- James Bangura
FACT Mix 777
Raucous, groovy and jungle-influenced house and techno from DC.
Piknic Électronik À La Maison DJ set
A wild ride through old hardcore, jungle and trance recorded for Piknic Électronik in Montreal.
- Patrick Russell
No Way Back's Patrick Russell is already something of a techno alchemist, making genuinely new sounds with his blends—but this mix is something else, unmoored from dance floor expectations and "deep and hazy," in the DJ's own words.
"I love how slimy this feels," one SoundCloud commenter says about Succubass's Daisychain mix, highlighting the Seattle DJ's focus on texture.
This Powder set from Sustain-Release 2017 still has people talking three years later, especially now that it's available for home listening.
- Stanislav Tolkachev
Reclaim Your City 400
Stanislav Tolkachev helms the 400th Reclaim Your City mix, and the end result is exactly the kind of hypnotic, psychedelic, brain-squeezing techno you'd hope for.
Dekmantel Podcast 298
SVBKVLT affiliate 33EMYBW shows off her one-of-a-kind "limb dance" style on this live mix of all-originals, much of it unreleased, for Dekmantel.
- Tim Reaper
Truancy Volume 269
Tim Reaper's Truants mix is a look at jungle music in the current day, from one of its most creative and talented proponents.
Club Dreams (Extended Family)
1432R head Sami helms the 50th Extended Family mix, which is so good that the account holder left several incredulous comments throughout. Expect vintage tech house, dubstep, ambient techno and more.
Ilian Tape Podcast Series 055
Ilian Tape seems to bring out the best in Surgeon, at least judging from his last EP and this mix of rambunctious, bounding techno.
