After our guest mix series took a brief and funkified foray into the genre known as juke earlier this week, we are already back with the 14th guest mix. Our infamous techno onslaught continues with France’s one and only Costello on the decks. Costello has continuously proven you can’t ignore him with each new release. His latest came out only yesterday on Bad Life. The 3 track Raiden EP already has well deserved support from Brodinski, Modek, Don Rimini and Djedjotronic among others. Raiden is the perfect mix of spacey atmospheric electronica with jackin’ techno. Space music aficionados like myself could never find disappointment in Costello’s tracks and as we at Metrojolt assumed, his guest mix is no exception.
Costello’s guest mix is 40 minutes of relentless heavy future techno. After a haunting and funky genesis with Savage Skulls & Douster’s TRT, Costello wastes no time bringing the energy up by slamming into an undeniably jackin’ Sirkus Sirkuz edit of T3ktone’s ‘Beat Of The Drum. This set dishes out heaters at an unprecedented rate. 6 minutes in and we have arrived at our beautifully spacey exclusive from Fat & Ugly and Bobble, ‘Miura’. His own special edit of Sharooz’s ‘Bells of Fierce’ is quite a little floor shaker if I may say so myself. With a sneak peak at an unreleased NT89 track in between, Costello soon moves on to the title track of his newest EP, ‘Raiden’. The next 20 minutes are a blinding incursion into the works of some of my favorite artists — Attaque, Henzel & Disco Nova, Mumbai Science, Clouds and a remix from California’s own, Pilo (we’re so very very proud of you and your techno, Pilo).
