[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. :) ]
