Music to get your week started

Time feels like it has been flying by this month. As we enter the last few days in July, I want to thank all the readers that come by on a regular basis and/or subscribe in a reader. That is the best way to stay current on all the music we post up as well as events we think you should check out, new music artists you may not have heard of, album reviews, label profiles and more!

First some more good news!!! After a slight delay and a change in schedule, the Dancefloor Mayhem internet show launches today on Techno.FM!



The show will air every Sunday night 6pm - 8pm PST / 9pm - 11pm EST. Tune in for music we have featured on the site, guest DJ mixes and other fresh music. The format is fairly open, we will usually start out with some downtempo stuff, then move on into electro, electro house, house, tech house, techno and other genres. This week our featured guest mix is from Alex Tomb of Elektrotribe Records.



You can also download and/or stream his mix below:

Alex Tomb - Summer Mix 2008










Here is how Alex Tomb describes his thought process both in the studio and recording DJ sets:

“I love techno music so that’s what I’m creating. My passion is mainly bass lines, surrounded by dark minimal melodies and percussion, trying to reach as dark as possible. Breakdowns are my obsession. When spooky atmospheres and mysterious melodies begin to sink through to your subconscious, hypnotizing, for as long as you can take it.
As a Dj I like to lead listeners through a trip, layering bass line over bass line into an abyss of obscurity. The style of music I'm playing and producing can be described as mainly techno with a minimal approach on elements. It is heavily dark and hypnotic without knowing what to expect.“



Next up we have a remix from Touch of a track by Hornbeam titled 'Dance or Drive'.
