Hear The Sound Of Ukraine’s CXEMA Techno Party With This Extreme Mix By Koehler

“I know they absolutely go wild at Cxema, so that’s precisely what I had in mind when recording this mix.”

A few years ago, Ukrainian techno heavyweight Nastia tipped us to the legendary Cxema parties that have made her local city of Kiev a vital rave destination. With a focus on local talent, spectacular locations and fierce intensity, a night at Cxema remains one of the last bastions of proper rave spirit today.

Cxema’s podcast series has always been a perfect place to get acquainted with the sound that rips through its parties. The newest edition of the mix series from Bristol-born, Bologna-based DJ and producer Koehler is no different. In fact, over the course of the hour, it might be represent the height of Cxema’s distinctive sound.

Koehler took peak-time at a Cxema party as his source of inspiration for the mix, and he hardly takes his foot of the acceleration. The mix doesn’t build, but explodes from the get-go with a sound floor of snarling bass that propels the mix forward. Almost as if Koehler has bottled a Cxema rave into one hour, the mix practically bristles with compressed energy. Check it out in full above.
