We havn’t posted one single 2012 best of mix. Finally Joakim came with his mix. It sums up very nicely the tracks we thought was best of 2012. Not entirely. But we agree with many of the tracks in his selection. 2 hours with Joakim is not long. And well, we might have left out the few rnb shit tracks.
- Deep House
- drum n bass
- Fuck me, I'm drunk!
- Mixtapes From Mars
- Protein Supplement
- UK Funky
- Week Mixes
Both sad and lucky for those who didn’t go to PHONO Festival, we got permission to record The Hacker‘s last live set for RBMA Radio. Gotta say thanks to RBMA for such a great help at this years festival.
Anyhow, enjoy this really tight and festive live-set. Unfortunately there is problems with the sound quality, but as you progress into the mix, it will disappear.
We surely hope that more recordings will arrive on RBMA Radio in coming days. We’ll keep you updated.

Surtek Collective (Vicente Sanfuentes and Atom tm) recently released the their stunning Shari / Vari EP on BNR TRAX (Buy Here). Two killer tunes that have set several DJ-sets under fire. But the two experienced techno producers have more in their sleeves, and they’ve chosen to give it for free.
The Moon Patrol release, is 3 version of the same track. A is acid techno. B is funky, just wait for it. C does have hypnotic disco feel.
The Hacker have since our early days with electronic music been one of our favorites (yes we have many favorites). In particular his work with Miss Kitten and tracks like Frank Sinatra, 1982 and The Beach marked The Hacked in the club environment and was for years played at the private party’s we went too. Booking him for PHONO2012 is truly something special. And having him to play one of his rare live-shows is even more exciting.
Now for latest news from The Hacker! Today a new The Hacker EP hit the world. It’s named Satori and is out on Correspondant (part of Kompakt). It comes with 2 original tracks and remixes by Daniel Maleso and Offset. About the originals, can be said that The Hacker is going back to his more dark signature electro techno sound from early 2000, and that we are fans of. Dark and hypnotic beats. Stream the Satori EP here.

Surgeon, one of techno’s deepest, darkest and best, has release a new mixtape stuff with exclusive material. Despite it’s length 1 1/2 hour will fly by without notice. But do only hear this mix on proper speakers, less is waste. Tracklist in comments.
Unreleased stuff too? Yes. Surgeon have made his amazing Coil remix available with following reason;
To accompany the 2001 re-releases of their first 3 albums, Coil decided to also release a vinyl box set edition which would include a 12″ of remixes by Autechre and Surgeon. The remixes were completed and approved by Coil, but the project stayed on the shelf. Sadly since then both John Balance and Peter Christopherson have both died and it’s with the greatest respect to their memories that I make this remix publicly available. – Surgeon

Bonus. Unreleased but now available for free, one of Scntst first tunes. Can you believe its only about 2 years ago he first started upload music?.. This Sky Thangz is really good!Scntst – Sky Thangz (320mp3 via Soundcloud) (preview)
May Ana Lucia Chita makes your wet dreams even better.
Now for the bass business! Lobot’s Head have done it again, with his new tune named Lucia. He categorize it as future techno, we’d more say it’s electro bass shizzle! But we fucking love it! Stuff going mad already at 1.15min. Simple a killer tune for the dancefloor. Gotta love this dude’s productions, so much stuff going without getting to complex and confusing. Enough bullshit talking. More Lobot’s Head here.
