As it nears closer and closer to the end of the year, it’s important to take a step back and look at the past to acknowledge our roots, where we are in life, and why we are who we are as individuals today. When it comes to recollecting the past in a musical scope, there’s nothing more fun and nostalgic than to dig through old audio files, records, and tapes to find gems that helped shape and define the musical taste you have today.
Long before the incorporation of House and Techno music into big mainstream clubs, ravers in California would throw on their rave gear, parachute pants, and Vicks smeared masks and head to the local desert’s to participate in some of the taboo and game changing parties that nothing in it’s time had ever seen before. Behind the dust of the dry desert wind and the sweaty bodies that huddled closely near the parties speakers, songs (like our track of the week) were being pounded out through the not so quiet desert landscapes.
“Rebirth- Pure” is a legendary track produced by West Coast Legend DJ Jason Blakemore (DJ Trance) and Oldschool Hardcore Techno produce Xpando. Although it was difficult to find any information about Xpando and where he sits today in the music world, it’s pretty obvious (especially if you live in California) that Jason Blakemore is still actively DJing and producing a variety of different sounds within the House/Techno genre.
This 1994 track will give you butterflies, make you pounce, and give you that mind melt acid techno feeling all within the span of 11 minutes. The great thing about this track is that there are different phases to the track and they all sound so different, but mold so perfectly. The fact that you can tell it is an older track produced on racks with actual equipment gives the song a rustic tone, and makes you appreciate it that much more.
With all that being said, just relax and blast to the past with this amazing track of the week.
