Boomkat Product Review:
Celebrating 10 years since its original release, Underground Resistance drop the downloadable version of Rolando's seminal 'The Aztec Mystic Mix'. As far as UR mixes go, this is quite easily one of the best, featuring one of their most skilled and successful DJs jamming together a heavily themed set of label classics. Listening to this mix unfortunately shows how lacklustre and formulaic the majority of techno is nowadays, and equally how varied, ambitious and abstractly funked the legacy of UR was during the 90's, when these tracks were originally produced. The mix includes all-time classics like UR's 'The Codebreaker', next to The Martian's 'Firekeeper' and 'Stardancer', Drexciya's 'Dr. BLowfins Experiment' and 'Bata Pumps', The Aztec Mystic's 'Jaguar' and 'Aztlan', and the Afrogermanic killer 'Z Track'. Still killin' it the old way! Tip!
