We Called It Techno 5 (FIXED version)

We Called It Techno 5 (FIXED version)

Playing tracks by

Skin Up, Jam and Spoon, Traikos, Shut Up and Dance, Messiah and more.

[Note: This is the good, "FIXED" version.]

Back again with another classic techno mix... and this one is a doozy! ALL tracks played from vinyl. ALL transitions performed manually. ALL rare remixes. Post-production applied to smooth out levels, add DJ drops, and fix an error.

This one hits a bit harder than "We Called It Techno 4," and the artists are more recognizable: Messiah! Skin Up! Digital Orgasm! Lots of great stuff here for lovers of the old school rave era.

WARNING: Foul language.

[The title of the "We Called It Techno" series comes from the fact that I know a lot of these songs won't technically qualify as "techno" to the genre purists out there. Some, I'm sure, would qualify as old-school rave, or electro, or possibly even breakbeat. However, in Oklahoma in the 1990s, we didn't break down the subgenres too much. Most of those who went to the clubs such as Ikon back in the day would have defined the tracks as "techno." We loved the music, and we called it techno. :) ]

A while after I originally uploaded "We Called It Techno 5" (and even after I uploaded "We Called It Techno 6," I think!) I was listening to "WCIT5" while on a walk around the neighborhood, and I realized that there was a REALLY bad technical error in it that I had not addressed. The mix was still pretty good on an overall basis, but that massive flaw really bugged me.

I kept intending to fix it, and I kept putting it off, over and over... and now, years later, I have finally fixed the error and re-uploaded "We Called It Techno 5." Here's hoping you enjoy this improved version. Thank you all for your support!


What was the “technical error“?
