This was the sound track to my workout tonight. Diggin’ this for sure.
Awesome! I love it when a mix can be utilised for a workout. I like to go running with my 9 yr old riding his bike, so I have to pick the right music to keep up (usually DnB). I was inspired by Tevo Howard and Adam X for this mix, melding industrial from my teen years with current techno. Thanks for the comment solcofn!
I’ve never found anything to beat Tall Paul’s 1999-05-09 Essential Mix for a good pumping exercise mix.
I’d go with the Shy FX Essential mix for that. 160-180bpms with brutal bass and jungle drums.
This is my go to gym Essential Mix:
Coming in @ under an hour… it’s well worth anyone’s time to give it a listen. I’ve always dug Industrial grooves. Some more mixes like this in the future would be nice. Peace.
Thanks much Warvadal! I was big time into industrial as a teen. All of Wax Trax, PIAS, MUTE, and then went in many different directions. I saw Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb, Revco (with Trent Reznor on tour singing Supernaught w/Jourgenson) Thrill Kill Kult, MBM, and many more. From pop sounding PWEI to grindcore of Cannibal Corpse and all in between. Always looking for something new, I got into house, On U Sound, ambient, underground hip hop, punk, anything that pushed new horizons. Once I heard techno I dropped industrial like a bad habit. I will still listen to Nitzer Ebb and a few others that were funky.
briscoe, I can totally understand and remember back in the day and most of what you’ve mentioned. I still have some Skinny Puppy and Thrill Kill Kult, among others, in my collection and hold on to them like GOLD. Peace.
Saw Pigface twice, the second time with Nivek Ogre in the mix. That was the industrial super group. I honestly don’t remember any of their songs now. I like to go back and listen for productions that have new life, like cEvin Key, Severed Heads, 242, Chris and Cosey, etc. I like the groups that crossed over to house/techno like GTO, Psychic TV, Cabaret Voltaire, Coil, MBM. The late 80’s early 90’s for these groups had some of the best tracks, that I really try to introduce to new fans, especially Cabaret Voltaire.
Right on. I have a story about how Coil’s LSD album saved my life, but I will save that for another day. I too like listening to the older groups newer efforts. Like Psychic TV and Coil. They’re still making great and ever changing music. I don’t own too much house/techno. I mostly come here to the b00mb0x to get my fix. But I will surely check out some Cabaret Voltaire in the mean time. Peace.
Yes! A surprising listen with many gems that were unknown to me. I’ll be playing again with a tracklist in hand. Good work!
Thank you Len! I remember buying the Cyberaktif lp in 1990 because of Front Line Assembly, cEvin Key from Skinny Puppy, and guest vocals from Blixa Bargeld (Einstürzende Neubauten ). At the same time I bought RSW’s In DUB and KLF’s Chill Out, and by the time 1991 rolled around I forgot about industrial because anything on XL was far more exciting. After my first rave in ’91, break beats and pianos ruled for me. Until I made this mix, I hadn’t listened to some of these in around 24-25 years.
