Learn Your Electro History In This Vinyl-Only Mix

It’s time you did your homework, son. Timed with the release of their brand new LP, The Capsule, Necro Deathmort have provided this sick mix for The Vinyl Factory which traces a broken line through the history of electro, which they describe as “in many ways…the purest form of electronic music: it’s uncompromisingly hard-edged and laser-focussed on the future, and yet you can dance to it.” Sounds alright by us, and that tracklist ain’t bad either!
