Droid Recordings has always focused on presenting domestic talent. The latest EP’s contributors are no exception. Kyle Geiger of Drumcode fame teams up with longtime collaborator and friend Bobby Dowell. They both reside in the techno’s simmering hotbed, the American Midwest. They are among North America’s chosen few still representing techno in the place where they were raised and influenced rather then adding themselves to the over-saturated European scene. Both their world travels and a deep connection to the place they call home inform their latest offering, TIGERWALL, a track inspired by Detroit Music Festival delirium. Geiger and Dowell combine their approach to sequencing and sound design to produce a unique techno cut with slight hints of psychedelia and funk reminiscent of Tronic releases. The flawless percussion and droning synth work build for a perfect 7 minute tension case. By the end of the track crowds will have transcended beyond normal dance-floor territory.

Material Object, who has already appeared on Droid remix duties to stellar reviews, turns in a clanging rendition of the original. The energy is taken up a few notches and an industrial swing is added to the final mix for heavy hitting results.

Droid is honored to host 2 of the biggest names in techno history and no doubt the most renowned of the label’s remix roster, Edit Select (Percy X) and Speedy J. The final product of this song is taken from an edit Speedy J made from Edit Select’s remix specifically for live shows. The end result is a sub sonic journey into the nautical depths of techno experimentation. Slow building oscillations and rhythmic beeps move the track along slowly yet forcefully into the minds of audiences and DJ’s alike. Hypnotic.

Techno’s latest maverick, Mark Morris debuts on Droid with a brilliant rendition that is sure to rattle, bump and hiss through the floor of any festival, club, etc that DJ’s dare to unleash it on. Morris turns up the sonic energy to a maximum yet manages to maintain the fundamental groove of the original. The well paced development of this mix is certainly worth taking note of.

    Tigerwall has that original Midwest/Kanada feel I remember so well from Fred Gianelli and all the classic Plus8 stuff and yet it’s totally modern and un-retro . Solid stuff, guys, I’ll be playing this for sure! Original and Speedy J remix are the ones for me but overall this a really strong pack and a great addition to a great catalog. Props!
