Groovetech Podcast 059 – Techno, House and Minimal

When playing techno I still keep up with my old ways of pushing the momentum with a mixing style which is a much more aggressive method in performing, versus what has become the unfortunate norm with many producers turned DJ continuously using long breakdowns and build ups as the only way of transitioning to the next track, which is very boring to me. I think that has to do with Proper Techno’s structure. When I heard Techno for the first time it was a bit strange, because of the way Techno is composed, but I started to appreciate it more and more. It’s like I say…Techno Belongs To Those Who Feel It …

Since You’re Here …

… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.

Unfortunately I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t setup a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.

If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
