Placid, the Dub Techno Sound of Berlin

The always reliable Placid has a fresh mix out with the title The Dub Techno Sound Of Berlin, which rather neatly sums up the upcoming 2 hours.

As is usual for Placid, this was recorded in one take (being that it was being broadcast live on his regular Future Music radio show) on good old vinyl with a trusty pair of Technic 1210 decks.

Placid had this to say about his resonator heavy selection

Pioneered by Berlin Duo Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernusutus, and for me, still unparalleled, the sound of what became pigeonholed as Dub Techno has taken many twists and turns since the fist Maurizio 12’s. Some of it bland, some of it extremely good.. Unfortunately I had Deepchord down as just imitating Maurizio for years and neglected to buy any of their records when they came out, hence their aren’t any of their original 12’s on this mix as they all cost a fortune to get hold of now….. anyway…

Here’s a 2 hour mix of my current favourite DT, of which some emanates from Berlin and some doesn’t and some might be inspired Mr Von Oswald and Mr Ernestus or may not be and could, if you like pigeonholing music, be called Dub Techno.
