D-Node 112: DJ Hyperactive | 4track

A Chicago original and skilled DJ since the late 80s, Hyperactive has pushed an evolving sound across the borders of house and techno and has nearly 2 decades of smashing releases to his name. Since the late 90s he’s run 4 Track Records out of Los Angeles. He’s put together this excellent mix of 4 Track’s latest, some of the year’s techno gems, and a few classics that will never die.

We asked Hyperactive to highlight a few tracks from his mix.


Truncate – Truncate.21 – 4 Track Records

Jerkin, jackin, techno track with a crazy ass sub b-line that breaks through and raises all kinds of havoc. Great brief filter sections that help transition this track throughout. There’s an arsenal of Truncate missiles all in launch mode for the months to come.


Eric Ryan – The Hunted (original mix) – 4 Track Recordings

Stalking minimal number, hence the title. One of my favs of the bunch. This will be this guy’s first release, believe it or not. Remixes to follow on this one as well…


SLS – Beyond The Orbit – (original mix) – Klap Klap

Great drummy track with some 808 elements ringing throughout. The other track on this release is tight as well.


Advent – ItOneJah (Surgeon Remix) – Internal

I’ve played this track from the get go, and it’s never left my record bag, and I finally ripped a digital copy of it because the vinyl is almost unplayable. Apart from his Soma release or early Ideal releases, this maybe my favorite track of his. Crazy drums, energy, build up, all that…


Adonis – No Way Back (Advent Remix) – Trax

Another oldie I can’t get away from. Great uptempo version of maybe one of my favorite old school acid tracks from back in the day.
