tante techno's tea time - dj set december Dezember 2021.

Söder gave it, Söder took it. In Bavaria, the dance floors are once again empty. Empty as a bachelor’s fridge. Empty like the canteen of the power plant in Chernobyl. Empty as a freshly dug grave. But Aunt Techno is not dead. She continues to play in the underground, in secrecy. Here is her last set. Have fun.

The Track or Album of the Week, Number 16: Deepfunk & Guy Manzur/The Mind Palace.

Album der Woche Album of the Week: Deepfunk & Guy Manzur/The Mind Palace.

An old album. In 2013 it flew to me while I was hunting and collecting. It was immediately very trusting and wanted to build its nest in my collection. Why not? It was warmly welcomed. Perfect warm-up tracks (both versions) and they are long enough to go to the bathroom during the DJ set.

Have fun listening to the album of the week:

The Track or Album of the Week, Number 15: Joseph Capriati/The Gallery.

Album der Woche, Album of the Week Joseph Capriati/The Gallery.

Once upon a time, a very long time ago. The first festival of a not-so-young upcoming DJ. It was late at night and the dance floor was relatively empty. Up to that point, the program included a strange mix of reggae house and hip-hop. The frustration on the part of the up-and-coming DJ was quite high. So he thought, forget about the prepared set and let it rumble. And against all expectations the dance floor filled up. Shortly before the end of his set he played this track. The sound system was great, the bass was gigantic and the dance floor was full again. All’s well that ends well.

Have fun listening to the album of the week:

The Track or Album of the Week, Number 14: Bob Marley/Babylon by Bus.

Das Album der Woche. The Album of the Week, Number 14: Bob Marley/Babylon by Bus.

An old love, lost and then found again. Immediately before I fell in love musically with punk music, I was an enthusiastic reggae fan. At that time my hair was still long and my shoes not yet pointy. A highlight from that time is Bob Marley’s live album, Babylon by Bus.

I believe I once owned this record, but sold it as part of the musical purge of my record collection (a punk doesn’t listen to reggae). Somewhere in the last 15 years I got the idea to dive back into my musical past. The result of this dive was the insight that I still love reggae, so I bought this album as a CD again.

In my opinion, better than all the studio albums, because on stage Bob Marley could really let off steam and transport the energy of his music in an ideal way.

Have fun listening to the album of the week:

The Track or Album of the Week, Number 13: Adam Beyer/No Defeat, No Retreat.

Der Track/das Album der Woche, Ausgabe 13; One Track or Album per Week, Number 13: Adam Beyer/No Defeat, No Retreat.

There are many people who generally reject everything that comes from Drumcode (https://drumcode.se). The reasons are manifold: not enough underground, 08/15 techno, unimaginative. I would tend to agree with that, but there are really good exceptions to the rule, including this mini-album by Adam Beyer.

2 really great tracks. No Defeat, No Retreat is an intelligently produced, interesting track. But the smash hit is Park People. A remake of an ancient track from Liaisons Dangereuses – Los Niños Del Parque. In retrospect, you could almost say that this track was close to being techno, even though at the time (1981) the genre hadn’t even been properly invented yet. At the time, I celebrated it with enthusiasm. Adam Beyer has respectfully edited it, sped it up quite a bit (from 115 ppm to 130 ppm) and added some interesting musical add ons.

Have fun listening to the track / the album of the week:

One Track or Album per Week, Number 12: Sampler/Kill all the Hippies.

One Track or Album per Week, Number 12: Kill all the Hippies. Punk-Sampler.

I bought this CD in London in 2002. At that time I attended an English course for professors in Saffron Walden – a small village in the south of London near Cambridge. This course ran for a total of 4 weeks. The weeks themselves went by relatively quickly, but on the third weekend, on Saturday I went stir-crazy and just wanted to go home.

I sat in my room at my host family’s house in the morning and cultivated my frustration.Not feeling like having a frustration weekend, I decided to go to London, visit the British Museum, and then just walk around the city.

The museum visit was a special experience as usual and shortly after I ended up in a cheap CD store. And there I found, among others, this CD for £1. I discovered on it many favorites out of my punk phase. At that price I didn’t have to think long, I just bought it.

Back in Saffron Walden I grabbed the CD player of the host family, put in this CD and felt really young again. The frustration was gone, I looked forward to the last week with excitement and everything was good again. Have fun listening:

One Track or Album per Week, Number 11: Alan Fitzpatrick - Prometheus

Last Friday it was finally time again. The dance floors were opened again. At just before 3 in the night – as the crowning glory of the entire evening, in a way – I couldn’t resist playing my absolute favorite techno track, Prometheus by Alan Fitzpatrick. It crossed my path in 2013 or 2014 (I don’t remember that exactly) as one of the very first tracks from this genre. Before that, techno for me was Wsetbam, Dr. Motte or Marusha. Didn’t like all of them. And then Prometheus came and changed everything. Have fun listening:
