Today, a departure from disco and house for some hard, fast techno, courtesy of one of the doyennes of the genre, Monika Kruse. With Patrick Lindsey, she released a string of releases under the 'Monika Kruse @ Voodooamt' moniker in the late 90s and early 2000s, and they are representative of the dark, hard techno that eventually gave way to minimal. "Shake that" is a 136-bpm floor-burner with intensely deep kicks, a frenetic two note bass-line and other stunning qualities, including a backwards section that is quite surprising. Sometimes, I really dig dancing like some E'd out raver to this shit-- so much energy, so much forward momentum that the tracks make it hard not to wile out! Great stuff.

Monika Kruse @ Voodooamt- Shake that

Tomorrow, a return to the disco and the gayness.
