Big Shot Guest Mix 301: BuRu

BuRu Big Shot Guest Mix

Finnish techno duo BuRu — brothers Mikko and Ilkka — craft the sort of deep techno the world could use a lot more of. Brandishing a sound that’s tailored for sweaty warehouse parties, their modus operandi harkens back to a time when DJs worked dance floors into a frenzy from the shadows of the DJ booth instead of from a stage illuminated by spotlights and pyrotechnics.

On the pair’s exclusive Big Shot Guest Mix, they pay little attention to release dates, building their session with bespoke cuts that were released as far back as 2010. The result is a flawless effort featuring tracks from Marcel Dettmann, Rasmus Hedlund, Scuba, Developer and Adriana Lopez. Listen to their session below and get a taste of BuRu’s many incredible flavors.

BuRu’s Fitting The Pattern EP is out now on Konstruktiv.

Download: Vitalic / “No More Sleep”

Vitalic is back with a bang with a rave-tastic techno stormer called “No More Sleep” from his upcoming album, Rave Age, due out October 22. With its blistering tornado of blips and bleeps and relentless groove, the song packs more punch than a six-pack of Red Bull.

Rave Age will feature vocal cameos by Joe Reeves (Shit Disco), Owlle and Rebeka Warrior (Sexy Sushi) and Mickael Karkousse from Belgium electro rockers Goose. Word is that Vitalic’s new release (which was produced by Stephane Alf Briat of Air and Phoenix fame) will be backed by a tour and all-new live show.

In the meantime, go on and bang your head to “No More Sleep.”
