His mix for D-Node as Pinion takes a walk down that industrial plank, mixing the raw, moving tec...

D-Node 206: Energun | Belarus

This week we present Energun, an interesting live act from Belarus (Eastern Block). Their promos caught the attention of Droid members due to their unique take on hard groove techno and their prolific output (the Concentration EP can be heard on Raíz's latest Blankcode Podcast). The bulk of Energun's releases can be found on their own Energun Records, but this recording for D-Node is made up of mostly unreleased, unnamed track arrangements. It was only natural we share their sounds with our ...
