if you listen to the set that speedy/liebing dropped at the masonic in detroit (avail. on paxahau) in Nov 2005....

... they went all over the board and it was very well done.

Yeah, I like it when it gets mixed up and all over the map, and when its done well :)

Just giving this set a listen for the first time right now, and enjoying it. But, on the msg board I found this on, everyone was freaking "OMG?! minimal is selling out!" because of this set.

I was really surprised with his essential mix from last year, but not surprised at the same time. Liebing (as a DJ and not a live artist) epitomizes where the harder end of the techno spectrum is for me (and many others I think) right now...there's just nothing new happening. It's nice to see your traditional harder techno DJs forcing themselves to play outside of what they're normally known for.

I concur, i've heard depeche mode vocals kill many a set for way too long now, go away already

I dunno..... while I am not a fan of vocals usually, or depeche mode remixes, I thought this Motor remix was fuck'in killer.

i don't think being forced into anything is a good idea.that is my conern with alot of these djs making the 'switch' these days...it seems forced.

you do it because you love it thats all,you have to stick to your convictions,i mean there is nothing wrong with expanding your tastes while still remaining relevant to your fan base and your older tastes.incorporate both into one fluid style,it's not hard.

i've been playing minimal,deep along with more dancefloor orientated styles for years now and they work well with one another,especially when you have an extended amount of time to work with.

my only worry is that when the hype of the electro/minimal tip dies down(and it will)what these djs are gonna do.

it's only a matter of time before harder dancefloor grooves will be predominant again and alot of these folk are gonna look mighty silly if they return to a format they've abandoned.

my 2 cents.

^^^ I do agree with you but in all honesty how can someone even call themselves a 'dj' if they only stick to one style... seems sort of a contradiction to me.

Well maybe forced is the wrong word...I just mean when you are so into one style and it's working for you, you're being successful with it and touring like mad, you generally stick with it until it's not working for you anymore.

I think part of it is that audiences for harder techno are getting smaller, and this is an opportunity for traditionally harder DJs to show their softer side. I doubt that the DJs that are "switching" are completely new to minimal/electro/deep techno - I imagine that they just haven't wanted to spin it as their primary sound thus far. Adam Beyer, in my eyes, is at the top of his game with some of the glitchier, minimal stuff he's been playing and producing lately. You can tell he didn't just decide one day he's going to start playing it...it's been a part of him for years.

Well to me, it doesnt look like Liebing or Beyer have abandoned the harder sounds. The Beyer @ Avalon mix ends pretty hard, and this mix moves into some harder territory also. I dont see it as them picking up and abandoning their roots for minimal, its seeing good quality tracks, putting it into their mixes and putting their own spin onto things.

Yeah, right now minimal is 'trendy', and alot of DJs and Producers are giving it a try. But there is also alot of really top-quality minimal comming out, and it'd be a shame to ignore it because it 'doesnt fit into the sound that your known for'.

People are getting all in a dizzy over harder DJs trying minimal which just makes me scratch my head. I'd rather DJs change/move/evolve and spin more than just 1 sound ALL the time. If they just kept to the same sound year, after year, after year, after year - it'd get old and stale.

I've seen people bad-mouth DJs for 'playing the exact same sound' as they were back in the 90s. But, at the same time, these same people bad mouth DJs who try something new and accuse them of abandoning their roots or hopping onto the new 'big trend'.

Seems like no matter what move the DJ makes - you're going to have a group of people who like or dislike what they are doing.

wow,you guys really missed my point.

im not critizing any dj for wanting to diversify their sound,jesus,if you ever looked at my record collection you'd be hard pressed to find a more eclectic
one in the city.

i encourage the diversity,and hope alot of these djs/producers continue to make interesting music on all fronts,not just one.

just do it for the love...thats all.

Liebing is not hard or Adam. Wait to I play double copies of Slayer records at my next set and then break it down minimal with solo electric guitar from Megadeth. All that plus diversity in one.

^^^ ha ha, if you only knew...

the last time I saw Amon Tobin he did just that: play this killer drum and bass remix of a slayer tune -- it worked sooo well -- people were losing their minds - seriously.

last time I saw Tobin (it was at least 3 years ago now) he pounded the dance floor with wicked dnb - really dark business in a Tobin way.

^when I saw him, there weren't any 'cover' tunes..

he did have a wicked mix of 'into the darkness', which was a breaks tune at the time - converted into amon tobin dnb..

but now, back to techno~!
