A techno mix for, all nerdy and IDM-ish. I wanted to capture the robotic herky-jerkiness of some of this music. Techno can go lots of different directions, but these tracks emphasize the dry, mechanical nature of the genre, I think. The now-antiquated equipment on the first tracks probably helped out here.
