About this mix
In the techno scene, especially in the 90s, a really good track was known as a "Brett“ [editors note: a "plank"]. We also used to say "that track is a weapon!" That's how we ended up with the name 50WEAPONS for our label back then.
We only wanted to do 50 releases, and here we are now with our 50WEAPONS finale: catalogue numbers #040 to #050, 10 years (2005-2015) and 10 final label parties all over the world. And, last but not least, a final mix solely made up of techno weapons from our label catalogue and its awesome artists. Enjoy!
Our weekly audio mix series where we call upon the most interesting artists/DJs/record labels and ask them to peer into the near future. How they take it from there is entirely open to interpretation.
Volatile and sardined with enough energy to burst your tweeter and then some. Durban's DJ LAG warms the Upfront plate with 68mins of gqom.
Mr. Mitch lunges deep into the vault of unheard Gobstopper Records-related gems — featuring Iglew bootlegs, new Murlo and joints from a 15-year-old Mitch.
