Take a trip to Frankfurt’s techno heyday with this seriously banging one-and-a-half hour mix.
Frankfurt’s Omen club was a centripetal force in Germany’s ‘90s techno renaissance, bringing legendary artists from around the world to play mind-warping techno sets on long weekend days and nights.
This recently uncovered set from Jeff Mills says a lot about the sound that dominated the Frankfurt club. The one-and-a-half-hour jam rarely—if ever—dips below 140 BPM, and features high intensity tracks with jacking synth lines, old school vocals and plenty of raw and heavy acid. Step into a time warp and listen to the mix and check out the tracklist below.
Some of the songs in the mix haven’t been ID’d yet, but if you think that you can help fill in the gaps, you can contribute to the conversation on the YouTube thread here. Afterwards, scroll down to get a glimpse into the Detroit legend’s musical process with his exclusive interview with EB.tv.
