Induced Turbulence

Sometimes Dub Techno tracks can be so full of natural beauty and yet somehow devoid of any sense of humanity or even the familiarity of our world. The feeling I get while listening to them makes me think of the imagery we are getting back from the Mars rovers and the Cassini spacecraft: Dust swirling on Mars’ baron deserts, gas jets spewing from a frozen moon, storm clouds spontaneously erupting on the surface of Saturn.

So that the mood would have some forced variance I decided to use a real film as a template. Gradually, I came to the point where the DJ mix was created and timed for the film. The film? Tron Legacy.

I love me some Ghetto Tech music so I rounded up some tracks and put them to a mix. To give it my own flare–and add some quality sounds to their janky production–I layered in some Techno, House, and Electro in the background.
