This week’s podcast is one that we’ve been trying to schedule for ages; finally the day has come where we can share an exclusive mix from Truncate for an URB podcast. Surely, techno heads will know who David Flores is; the multi-faceted Los Angeles producer that has exploded in the past couple of years with his releases as Audio Injection, and more broadly to the underground outside of techno with his DJ-friendly Truncate releases. Already approaching double-digits with his TRUNCATE label, the project itself has most recently made a surprising and brilliant stop-over in Berlin, courtesy of 50WEAPONS. The Modeselektor-headed imprint had the presence of mind to tease us with the potential of Flores debuting on the label solo, with a track on a compilation released not too long ago. That was soon followed by a remix for Benjamin Damage, and finally, led us to Truncate’s full-on 50WEAPONS debut EP, “Pressurized”. Somewhere between DJ-tool-bent techno, broken beats, and bass music lies this release; and it shows just how talented of a producer Flores is from beginning to end. Masterfully crafting his signature style with a focus on breaking his own boundaries, the EP excels at cementing his stronghold on building bridges between techno and the all-encompassing underground subgenres that surround it. With all that said, we’re thrilled he delivered such a hefty mix of dancefloor epics for this URB podcast. Be sure to enjoy it responsibly, and check out the tracklist down below.
