Rival Consoles Makes Us a
Restless Techno Mix

Rival Consoles


With this mix, I wanted to explore the kind of techno that I love and listen to at home. Tracks which are slightly industrial and stark, yet addictive and upbeat.

I generally like techno to have proper urgency and momentum to it — with quite heavy synths — but I also love contrasts, so I included enough warmth and playfulness across different genres to keep things unpredictable and joyful.
