COLL: Richie Hawtin & Sven Vath – 3rd Season
Label: Novamute

This is a fantastic mix-CD by two of the legends of techno – Richie Hawtin & Sven Vath, as they are recorded live in Ibiza. This is not your typical Euro-trance stuff you’d find in Ibiza. No, no. This is some of the most bangin’ techno/electro/retro stuff you’ll hear. Lots of huge distorted analog synths, lots of multi-layered bangin’ beats. Best sections of this mix-CD: 4-7, 13-15.

1. Recording of conversations, hanging out
2. Spacey minimal techno w/ trance-y blurps
3. Percussive layers, stripped down electro-tech-y
4. Retro techno – big synths & drones, big analog basslines
5. Grinding bassline & ass-kicking techno-drone buildups – killer
6. Simple loops, distorted & twisted water-y effects, big bassline – nice dirty techno
7. Short track – brinding bass & snare buildups, a bit like Speedy J
8. Audience cheering mixed w/ track #7
9. A bangin’ techno track w/ some groove - catchy synth loop w/ bumpin’ bassy beats
10. Super-percussive – multiple layers bangin’ w/ distorted effects
11. Grindin’ drones w/ sample vocal “99.9” – big industrial beats
12. Audience cheering mixed w/ track #11
13. Retro-tech remix of a techno classic – distorted original vox set to electro synths
14. Bumpin’! Totally old-school distorted drones, retro-electro-wave techno!
15. Kraftwerk-ian – big synths all over the place – cool
16. Variety of voices/background sounds
17. Chilled-out electro w/ swirly fem vox
18. More chilled-out beats & some dubby ambience on this house-y track
19. Vocal interlude
20. Chilled-out electro w/ cool wacked-out dubby synths
21. Distorted vocals (FCC – “fucked”
