Reflect - Techno Saturday #2 (2022)

The other day I was browsing the world wide web, and went back to my trustworthy Soundcloud. On it, there was a brand spanking new mix I found, reposted by someone, and the artist who made this mix was Reflect. A name I did not recognise, but what I did recognise, is the awesome mix he made. It's a Techno focussed set, and it is just the right Techno for me. Now you might be wondering: what is the right kind of Techno? As Techno as a name is an umbrella term, and can have a wide variety of sounds engulfed in it. To me, if I were to answer the diabolical question 'what is Techno?', the answer would be: ''all the songs in this mix''. This style has always appealed to me the most, and takes me right back to the Millennium sounding Techno. The right time for me, as it was then I rediscovered Techno, and spent a lot of time in clubs and raves, and this kind of Techno was everywhere.

But now, it's 2022, and the music has changed. This underground sounding Techno still has a huge cult following, and I'm one of those people. This seriously reminds me of the early 2000s, and that's when my love for Techno was at its all time highest peak. To find a mix that embraces that, is just glorious. But this specific mix isn't the only one: I did have a listen and found a few other mixes by Reflect which are similar, and awesome!

The main issue was, no tracklist. And you know how much I detest this. How can the listener found out which song they like the most and try to purchase it? But I was PC enough and asked if a tracklist was possible, and Reflect was ever so kind, and provided me with one.

So without further ado, let me show you the tracklist, and let's dive straight in!

This mix is tight as fuck! Seriously impressive mix. When I started listening to these mixes, I fell like I was a teenager/early 20er again. And that feeling is glorious, being young again. The mix is tight as fuck.

Again, I'm not familiar with Reflect, but he has certainly grabbed my attention. This mix has made me aware of what he's capable of, and it's certainly something that deserves credit. But also the music, it is outstanding. Especially one track. There's one track that I only had to hear once to realise its potential.

'Slipback' by Dimi Angelis. My sweet Baby Jesus, what an anthem. Dark and edgy. Monotonous, but that's the way I like my Techno. If I close my eyes, I can imagine being at Innercity in the RAI in A'dam, back during the early 2000s. This is the kind of music they played there. Or what about Shockers? Oh, those glorious Techno events...

I can go on for hours, but this mix just deserves your full and undivided attention. And it's also a free download. Why not have a listen, and appreciate this mix as much as I have? And listen to 'Slipback', what an absolute fucking dancefloor filler, tremor inducing anthem!!
