D-Node 207: Pinion | Perc Trax

Bobby Dowell has a sound that's both dark and human. With releases on Droid, Soma, Slap Jaxx, and elsewhere he's developed an approach that keeps thing moody and moving at the same time. His recent work as Pinion, including a release for Per Trax, adopts an industrial edge, taking the classic feel of screeching materials in heavy friction and driving it with the rhythms of contemporary techno. His mix for D-Node as Pinion takes a walk down that industrial plank, mixing the raw, moving tec...

D-Node 186: Mick Finesse | Perc Trax

Denver-based Mick Finesse, AKA Stephen Penders, has made his way into the international spotlight this past year with brilliant releases on Perc Trax (Tunnel Vision) and Broken20 (Spatial Anxiety).

D-Node 156: ASC Live at Tar & Feathered NYC

ASC is perhaps best known as a contemporary UK drum & bass producer with a talent for atmosphere, but in the past few years his music has been completing a drift toward techno and other experiments. 2010's style-traversing Nothing Is Certain on Nonplus grabbed the attention of music listeners across genres for its strong sonic vision, and a unique release last year on Mote Evolver placed ASC squarely in the sights of the techno tunnel visioners. The past 12 months have been particularly prod...
