“It comes on slow & strong like mescaline. There’s elements of tech noir, world music, ray gun gothic and post-dust. It exudes an ‘authentic’ futuristic urban vibe.”
If there’s a good combination between two genres of music that has impressive results this is dub-techno. Today we present you Vancouver based Dystopian Soundscapes and Ikigai, released by Superordinate Dub Waves. This is only a taste of Dystopian Soundscapes works, as he’s currently with several releases on his back, all called DSXXX, as if it was a catalogue of a label. You can check more of his productions on his Bandcamp or Soundcloud profile. His music enters our ears as hallucinogenic substances. The specifics of techno and dub’s psychedelia strike us altogether as one single matter.

The newest feature of Synths of Techno is DJ Jace, from Canada, with his newest track Sheltered Society, released 15th of October by FineGrind Audio. The cutest art cover for a techno track that I’ve ever seen, that is still psychedelic and suitable for techno, tough with a cute kitten displayed in the center. Nothing more appropriate for primal this primal sound design, a bit distorted, high and keeping an arpeggiated feeling. Great rhythm after its drop. The high arpeggiated synths give the danceable feeling that are synchronized with the drums somehow. Sheltered Society comes as a single, featuring two other tracks: House Sick and The Boxer.
Today’s techno comes from Peru, Izakaya Deployment, with his EP Trust, released by No Signal Records. If you like techno that has synthesizers with personality, Kurabi is a track for you. Minimalistic, with synths sounding repetitively, having the same sustained notes being played for a long time, while it remains pleasant for the ears until the very end. In total we have 6 minutes of hypnotic techno, suitable for the dance floor, on the beginning of a DJ Set maybe, to warm up the crowd for more aggressive material to come.
Impressive techno, I wish I could see how it would perform in the dance floor for a big crowd, I bet they would go insane. This is Momentum by Mafia B, from New York City, USA. Amazing bass in the drop, the work with sinthesizers, drums and vocals stand out. Keeping the usual tradition of that dark traditional techno.

Based out of California, I seek to bring you the sound of the underground; booming House, chugging Techno, and deep Progressive. I do all my sound-design, arrangement, mixing, and mastering myself.
With the growing popularity of EDM, dance culture has become a commercialized, superstar-celeb echo chamber. I hope to center transparency, original talent, and breathtaking music as the focal point of our scene.
Newest feature of Synths of Techno is Jahren, a progressive house track by Californian producer Idem Zerum. Noisy at the beginning, it later turns to an atmospheric progressive house, full of colourful synthesizers that sound like strings, and a compelling rhythm followed by an oriental style of vocals.
