OAKE Create A Techno Black Hole

Ferocious Berlin duo OAKE is a vision to behold live, with a sound somewhere between Diamanda Galas and a pitch-black Berghain dance floor. Last year’s Auferstehung LP was a monstrous audio gem, and the pair’s recent Ascetic House cassette Live In Marseille is one of our many favorite things this year.

Now the dark gods have gifted us a massive mix courtesy of Secret Thirteen (one of our favorite mix series originators—including this absolutely perfect three-hour history of goth). A two-hour frolic through ambient, ethereal and doom-heavy layers of techno and experimental music, it’s ideal for those whose particular brand of holiday cheer skews more toward Krampus than Santa. Check that killer tracklist below, then plug in here.
