Pangaea (a.k.a. Kevin McAuley) is something of a mystery. On the one hand, he's one third of the braintrust behind Hessle Audio, a label that's widely recognized as one of the most innovative and respected imprints in electronic music. We invited him to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series. What he ultimately came up with is a 74-minute session that largely consists of intense, unrelenting techno. Granted, Pangaea has long been tabbed as the most "techno" of the Hessle Audio gang, but this podcast truly hammers home his love of pounding, four-on-the-floor rhythms. Sure, there are stark aesthetics and elements of noisy ambience sprinkled throughout the mix, but what defines the proceedings is the insistently thudding pulse of the kick drum.
