[ DARK TECHNO ] MATIAS BUSATO – “La Oscuridad”

Oscuridad

  In my opinion, there’s nothing like some deep, dark techno. It’s trance’s evil twin, in a way; techno feels slightly sinister and decadent when compared to trance’s uplifting melodies, yet both of them share the same musical DNA. Techno is pure energy throughout, whilst trance has a story, but techno should never be without […]

logo_2014_sls

  Crafted by James Kabat and Kavi S. Still nursing hangovers from Lolla, Chicago is about descend in droves upon West Loop’s Union Park. Well, maybe descend is too strong a verb. They’ll slink their way on the L, shushing teenagers for the temerity to raise their voice an octave above a whisper. That is […]
