Hours, the Stuttgart-based techno producer has just dropped a brand new 1 hour dark techno mix for the Club Airport Podcast. The German producer began DJing in 2009 and has been a resident Lehmann Club (producers of the quality Lehmann Podcast) since 2010. After originally encountering the his sinister, dark and danceable sound with the track Trench Run a few years ago on a Driving Forces compilation, he's gone on to start the label Concepts of Time, and just released a brand new EP Endeavour on Mike Wall's Wall Music.
The mix is a subtle blend of dark & industrial techno, moving with menacing momentum through pulsating, nocturnal rhythms before dropping into gritty, plodding drums and spiraling out into thundering industrial. After 20 minutes, the drop punches in and vicious snares and cymbal percussion kick it up and to get you stomping around the floor to dance. It's full on metal machine industrial techno for the rest of the mix, before taking the last 10 minutes to settle back down into some darker techno rhythms.
You can check out this mix from Airport Club of Würzburg, whose podcast has featured mixes from Niereich and Kerstin Eden in the past, on the Airport Official SoundCloud, and be sure to check out the newest release Endeavour from Hours himself, available on Beatport.
