This is our story...

Today we’re stoked to be bringing you the launch of another curator playlist series, this time coming from one of our family members and NEST HQ writers: Jade aka DISCHETTO. Check her words below:

Hello fellow techno fiends. I am so excited to announce the launch of a new monthly playlist curated by yours truly. In addition to being NEST’s resident techno expert, I DJ under the name DISCHETTO, and am happy to provide you with the latest tracks to soundtrack your venture into the techno underworld. Enjoy!

_UNSUBSCRIBE_  – The Opener (Jensen Interceptor Remix) [Boysnoize Records]

Jensen Interceptor is a freakin’ wizard with his signature brand of jackin’ and offensive techno.

Amato – Deranged [Cititrax]

Amato is the new side project by French legend, The Hacker. This one fuses classic EBM (electronic body music) elements with electro and techno with an industrial vibe.

Dean Grenier – Rotorvator [Omnidisc]

This whole EP released on Danny Daze’s label was a cosmic listening experience in general, but this track is impressively distorted and danceable at the same time.

Pyramid – Alteria [Record Record]

Featured on the Filet Mignon 4 compilation, this one isn’t strictly a techno track, but still with a heavy and dark bassline guiding through ethereal melodies.

DJ MML – Communication Theory [Boysnoize Records]

Louisahhhh! + Maelstrom + Jensen Interceptor = DJ MML. ‘Nuff said.

Maelstrom – Lithium [Cititrax]

One of my personal favorite and most respectable artists in the game. Maelstrom has a knack for mechanical and metallically textured jams with irresistible rhythms.

JoeFarr – Spectate (Max Cooper Remix) [Leisure System]

Max Cooper marries overtly intense melodies with jagged rhythms and abstract sounds in an extremely emotional way.

Divided – Interzone [Project 13]

This one is one of those peak-time weapons that is not for the faint of heart. What can I say? I just love music that scares me.

Junior Boys – Big Black Coat (Robert Hood Remix) [City Slang]

It’s Robert Hood. Needs no introduction.

October & Borai – Necessary Force [Happy Skull]

One of those tracks that you hear live and are just like “what the f*** was that”. In a good way.

Vincenn – Lessen & Resolve The Rust EP [Refluxed]

Just a really quality EP all the way through from yet another talented French techno producer. Totally hypnotic, aggressive, and heart-attack-enducing.

Stenny – Consume IV [Ilian Tape]

Munich’s Ilian Tape never disappoints. Stenny explores a sonic and apocalyptic landscape with this EP.

Randomer – Concierge [Clone]

Randomer is one of my top 5 producers of all time because his tracks are so emotive and beautiful in such a cryptic way.

Amtrac – Once Is Enough (Chambray Remix) [Super Music Group]

This one technically falls under the house umbrella, but it is incredibly uplifting and punching so I can’t not share.

DETOUR – Rugged [Leisure System]

If you’re trying to travel into the seventh layer of hell, this one will take you there.

HD Substance – Transponder EP [AYCB]

Housemeister’s AYCB label is a one-stop-shop for strictly raw techno jams.

Env3 – Typ2 [SubTL]

The kicks in this track are incomprehensible.

Audion – Destroyer [!K7]

Off of Audion’s first album in a decade, this track is so tragically brilliant with its mechanical finesse, warped sounds, and incredibly complex rhythms.

Kamikaze Space Programme – Absence [Killekill]

Fresh off the release of his Humanoid EP, KSP offers up another otherworldly and intoxicating production for the Killekill Megahits II compilation.

VNP – Wake Me Up (TWR72 Remix) [Nice To Be]

TWR72 has quite the knack for – lack of a better word – sexy techno. All of their tracks are sharp and rugged but also viciously seductive.

Arnaud Rebotini – Danger Zone [Zone]

Arnaud Rebotini is an absolute legend. His new EP for Gesaffelstein & The Hacker’s Zone label is robotic, retro, and totally assertive.

Commuter – Sometimes I Wish I Lived In 1981 [Life Sentence]

If you love classic electro with a sinister vibe, pleaseeee take the time to explore Commuter’s entire discography.

Randomer & Cadans – Anchor [Neighbourhood]

Randomer & Cadans put forth their Angry Fiddle / Lottarump EP last year via Clone Records and I think I’ve played both tracks in almost every set of mine since. They’re back with another collaborative EP, this time on Neighbourhood and it’s freakin’ WILD.

THROWBACK TRACK:  Public Energy – Three O Three [Electric Deluxe]

This was released in 1992 and it still slams harder than any modern techno track I’ve ever heard. I first heard Gesaffelstein play this live at one of the 34 shows of his I’ve been to and think I actually cried… Either cried or assumed the fetal position on the dancefloor.
