Pillscast 0053 - A Trip Into the World of Techno and Rave Culture (2022)

We've reached Sunday! One day closer to the next week, but we can end this weekend with a bang! A mix I have found might give you enough energy to keep on going and going. A Techno mix you might appreciate a lot. And one that might bring a smile on your face, compared to the opposite that might happen, knowing the weekend is about to end. We don't want to be sad; we want to be happy, and the music will certainly uplift us all. Unless you detest Techno, and in that case, you can do one! Go away, right now!

Another mix I found by accident on Soundcloud. And I know absolutely NOTHING about who made this. The channel is called Dstm, and looking at the profile picture, it seems like a scary person you don't want to see at night... or even during the day! But certainly, it won't be an issue at an event, that's for sure.

Not that I was planning on going out during the darkest of hours, but still. I am not aware of this DJ, but what I can talk about is the mix itself. I saw this mix, the mix picture got me interested, and I pressed the 'PLAY' button, and once I've done that, I was in full awe of this mix, and the tunes selected for this mix are all so freaking gorgeous!

I am a Techno lover, but not an expert, so not only is the DJ an unknown name to me, the tracks in this mix are too! But don't you worry son, it isn't about the names, it's more important of what these tracks can do to you, and to me it is quite clear what they made me do: DANCE! Or, in this case, RAVE!

This has been playing in my house since 9am this morning, and it's been a blessing in disguise. I've thoroughly enjoyed the set, from the first tune to the last. Dstm has made a very entertaining set, and I would suggest you to give this a go.

This has only been on Soundcloud for three months, but it has already reached 15k+ plays! And that's for good reasons: this mix is dope. This is the 53rd instalment of the Pillscast (whatever that might mean), and after listening to this one, I'm determined to give the others a go too. I will certainly jump on the bandwagon and checking all the other stuff out, by Dstm.

I love the darker vibes you get throughout this mix. At certain stages it's quite refreshing and 'light' but then it turns in a second into this dark and underground anthem. Especially the last two records, which I liked the most. Dark and edgy, that's just the way I like my Techno!

Got nothing else to say. Check this mix out right now, and RAVE the weekend away (that sounds sad, but you know what I mean)
