“Slow-paced techno with lots of dirt and grit, thanks to the overdriven analog filter through which the drums are routed. Camera stopped recording beyond 10mins, but went on jamming anyway.”
Out now is the brand new EP “Life Is My Teacher” by Miss Kittin. You can download the track for free now right after the jump. The song offers up a glimpse of Kittin’s third album, the self-produced double-CD “Calling From The Stars”, to be released on the Paris based wSphere Records on April 22, 2013.
Apart from this free download the single is also available as an EP featuring three more new tracks including the exclusive cut “I.L.A.N.E.N.O.” and “Tamarin Bay”, both of which reflect the album’s second disc of ’90s-inspired ambient techno. Also added is a remix of “Life Is My Teacher” by the Spanish duo Borderline.

Here is a video Jordan Passmore created using segments of a Roland promo video they released sometime in the late 90’s.
An all in one techno music production studio, this machine has it all. A massive collection of professional and coveted electronic synth and drum sounds, effects, built-in real-time VCF and envelope knobs for tweaking, a sequencer/arranger, and many other great additions. This is the successor to the MC-303 and is now much more advanced. Its sounds will be familiar to any techno-head.
The LFO and resonant filters allow quick and easy sound manipulation. The new D-Beam allows you to randomly tweak your sounds by passing your hand over an infrared beam! It has a great sequencer for building your songs (with groove quantizing and part level faders for mixing) as well as many idea catchers like the phrase sampler and arpeggiator.
This is an all-in-one music machine that’s great for DJ’s or anybody else who wants to create slamming dance tracks. Designed as a stand alone machine, they do not work quite as well when incorporated into a multi-synth keyboard rig. It’s perfect for beginners and advanced users, but offers the most possibility to those who will use it exclusively. By the way, in comparison to the MC-303, this is far better especially in the quality and quantity of sounds!
Both, a cuicuit-bent Korg Monotron and a Nanoloop (Synthesizer and Sequencer on Nintendo Gameboy) are synced by the trigger impulses sent by a Roland TR-626 drum computer.
This allows to filter the raw chiptune sound of Nanoloop by the analog filter of the Monotron. The retrigger of the Monotron LFO is the red wire. The sync mod is done like shown here: http://stevewoodward.posterous.com/lfo-reset-point-on-korg-monotron

Dance music duo Orbital is one of techno’s most celebrated and accomplished partnerships. They pack a punch and we hear songs from their new album, Wonky, when these Brits invade KCRW studios on Morning Becomes Eclectic. Watch / Listen to the full session here: http://www.kcrw.com/music/programs/mb/mb120924orbital
Techno live set utilizing
-Korg Electribe S
-TR-626 (MIDI and sync-trigger master)
Gameboy and Electribe (not the Monotron filter LFO) are synchronized via MIDI or trigger pulses from the TR-626 sync master. The Delay is synced manually by tapping.

Jordan Passmore demo of the Roland TR-808, Akai MPC-60 and Roland SC-880. SC-880 is playing the rave patches, MPC-60 is loaded full of TR-909 samples and is also sequencing 909/synth, TR-808 is doing 808. All held together by a Garfield Nano Doc Sync/Clock adapter. All sounds are mixed live on an old Studiomaster mixing board; from there they pass through an Electra EQ, then finally into my Native Instruments Kore Audio Interface. The SCC-80 has an analog delay attached to it, which when I’m out of the shot, I’m usually messing with. I also have a Behringer Virtualizer Pro Reverb on an effects send (a bit of the 909 and SC-880 are send to this).
The MPC-60 loaded with 909 samples is pretty hard to beat for completely cutting through a mix. I personally love the 808 so of course I threw that on top as well. The SC-880 is very interesting and totally useful (multitimbral and full of many very usable effects). I found these patches on it and decided to do a short demo from there.
