solaris january 2005 techno

intro & photo by todd ~  Local KC Techno DJ, Solaris is back once again with his picks for some of the hardest and rawest Techno beats for the new year. Always looking for ways to push the limit of your Techno experience, check out these tracks and, courtesy of DJ Solaris.

RAW - GUY MCAFFER - RAWR001
Leave it to guy to get everything worked into techno. From P Funk in one record to this banger with house remixes. Who knows what he will throw in next.

CLUSTER - ANT & NICK GRATER : CLUSTER69
Ant does it again. What can I say about these two? Take a balloon ride then go get chromed. The B side has a wicked breaks breakdown. Cluster will always remain one of my favorites. They are always out to impress.

SHORT CIRC - ALEX CALVER - SC015
Some great acid here. Who needs those little pieces of paper or jells when you have vinyl like this? Next time I feel like goin to never never land, I’ll just get me a box of alex’s wax. If you need me to I’ll say it again keep your eye out on this guy. He is what every bad boy wants to be when he grows up.

PROX PRO - FRANKIE BONES - PROXPRO7
Even Frankie knows where to go when you want it nasty. Rowland The Bastard comes through with it in spades. Come one come all cause there is no wank girl around. Just some nice nails to shove through your temple.

PLANET RHYTHM - GLENN WILSON VS THE ANXIOUS - PRRUK047
Now for the good stuff! Glen never disappoints! Nice minimal drum tracks. The kind of stuff that leaves a line at the decks asking where you got it. Well if you do you will be able to leave the others in the dust. Grind baby grind.

ZYNC – PREACH - ZYNC30
I never thought I would hear a early morning techno track… then again it had to be done sometime. This is definitely one of those late night stompers. Let it all out and let em wind down with this. Its just the prefect bit of morphine for you after the beating.

DJAX UP BEATS - SANDY WAREZ - DJAXUP371
Who needs aspirin? You will after the beatin’ you’ll get from this one. A bit of everything hard here. Even a nice B side that reminds me of UR. Don’t know? Well take a minute and then come to your senses and realize that you haven’t lived yet.

HIGHLAND BEATS LTD - THIRD NATION - HBLTD005
There are great reasons to get into shape but I am not sure this is one of them. When you can come chill and hear this groove who needs to go all out the whole night. This one is great for those times where the cogs in your brain grinded to a hault and you need a wrench to sort it all out.

SUBMISSION - GLENN WILSON, D RODELL, EHALIN - SUBMISS8
One great thing about this label is that they never let up. Why? Well that wouldn’t be techno. And these bangers are just that, straight forward and bangin. Don’t let your mom catch you with these, she may just think you were up to no good.

GLITCH - ALEX CALVER - GLITCH006
Not on my last item for any reason other than finding stuff this good takes time and work. I live off of B Sides and I might have to reconsider that after listening to these tracks. From crazed to straight and hard we have it all here. Don’t mess around just put this on your list for Santa, if not you will regret it.
