tear it up with the outside agency

TB-303 waveform

Those Dutch gabberlads from The Outside Agency (aka DJ Hidden and Eye-D) are definitely one of the most interesting and innovative hardcore/industrial techno and drum’n’bass producers out there at the moment.

Since I’m not alone in this view, the Danish DJ Wavolizer has mixed together a 4 hour long mix containing only TOA tracks. 99 tracks in total. Not for the faint of heart I tell you. Download links and track listing are included if you follow the link. That file hoster is hosting some NSFW advertising btw so better have AdBlock running if you’re getting this at “W”.

As if this 4 hour mix isn’t good enough already, there’s also this mix with a bunch of remixes but not all because they forgot on or two up on their soundcloud page. Nice.

That should be enough hardness for this week I reckon.
Let it bang!

awesome free electro music

The WEEE Man

I usually listen to the harder type of electronic music but a good 808 drum and some squealing synth (if done right) can soothe me greatly. A good electro or acid techno track seems simple when you listen to it, but if done right, they just work and sounds awesome.

Thanks to some twitter retweets I came across this Anti-Social Network’s Electro Compendium on Bandcamp. A free download with a whopping 116 (I kid you not, one-hundred-and-six-teen!) kicking electro tracks. If you are in need of a fair dose of vintage drum computers and squelching synths, some sci-fi soundscapes and samples and some typical vocoder robotics samples to balance out for the hardcore breaks I’m usually posting here, this might be your cup of tea indeed.

It’s free and so worth the download IMO.
Get it and spread the word to your electro loving peeps (*cough* tweet button below *cough*).
