Just thought Id post up this great video of old school electro master Anthony Rother, though Rother says he doesn’t like the term “techno” any more we feel that the Datapunk label boss still qualifys as both an innovator in electronic techno music and someone who will be a guiding light for many years to come. So here is a great 25 minute video of Rother doing his thing and doing it damn well, enjoy.
The Monegros Festival is on again in Spain next month, bringing more than 20 hours of techno, minimal, dubstep, hip hop and more to the Monegros desert between Madrid and Barcelona. Set in the desert, 40000 people, 22hrs non-stop music, on 5 simultaneous stages, alternating between Techno, Electro, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass & Dubstep, there should be a wide enough soundscape to satisfy just about any electronic music lover.
Billed as “The biggest rave in Spain”. A lot of terms are used in an attempt to describe this festival, however it is literally impossible to put in plain words if you have not had the chance to attend it. Well worth a flying weekend visit. Should be one of the biggest one day events of the year.
