Enter The Void [Dark Techno Mix] (2012)
The weekend has officially started, and it's time for us all to relax. Unless you are obviously still working, for which I do not envy you. If you aren't, and you are ready for the upcoming weekend, let's go in it in style! Let's play a mix filled with tunes of a specific kind, of a style I don't hear that often, but I should listen to much more than I already do: Dark Techno. Today's entertainment is brought to you by Doctor Space, and the mix was released back in 2012. Nearly classified as a golden oldie.....
It is true though. I don't review that many Dark Techno mixes, or even Techno mixes in general, The last review was a Speedy J set from Shockers. And the one before that... that's a long time ago. I just never seem to find the time, but yesterday, whilst being in the office, I thought I'd go on Youtube, my loyal companion, and there it was: an online radio station that played Dark Techno music, 24/7. That made my day even better. The highlight of that day.
So, guess what happened next? Well, I finished working roughly 1 hour ago, and I went onto Soundcloud, looking for a Dark Techno mix, with a tracklist. And that wasn't as easy as you might think. I had to sieve through quite a few mixes, only to find out that the tenth mix had a tracklist. And guess what? That's the one you are listening to right NOW! Or reading about. Depends on what you do first. Do you actually read this review, or do you think 'bollocks to all that, I'd go straight to the mix'?

If you are a Dark Techno lover, this tracklist might make you happy. But, if you are like me, you might look at it and not have a clue who these producers are! I only know Cari Lekebusch. That's the only name in this list of 20. But it's not relevant who made the music, as long as the music is good.
And the music is indeed good. It's not extremely dark, but still nice and dark. Sometimes it even hints to the mellow side of Techno, but do you give a shiny shite? Not really. At least the flow is good, and enjoyable.
Doctor Space, whoever you might be, you've made a brilliant and highly regarded mix. Already 100k plays. 100k and one. I am really pleased I found this mix and it has made the entry into the weekend better. Smoother. Rougher.
I know nothing about the DJ, nothing about the producers, but I do know one thing: this mix is one dope and tight ass mix! Play it, and enjoy it!
