Several weeks ago I was fortunate enough to make it out to Indio, Ca, a three hour drive east of LA, for the annual Coachella music festival. This was my second time going and let me just say, it was awesome. There were so many good acts but for me the focus was really on the incredible array of sweet techno acts playing. I should mention that I have already been harassed by the music genre labeling police for using the term techno is this manner. Apparently techno is only supposed to refer to some very specific sub genre of electronic music. However, language is fluid and I use the term to refer to electronic dance music but I digress. Either way, it's a genre of music that I haven't gotten to see many good shows of lately. I have put together a mix of some of my favorites from this year's Coachella as well as a couple tracks from the last one I went to back in 2006 when it was only a two day event. This is a high energy mix so use with caution.
In the podcast I refer to a video I took during the Kaskade show. Here's the link: Kaskade at Coachella 2010
As always, the album art on the mp3 file contains the track list but I know sometime Itunes won't display the proper track list for the podcast that is playing so I am including the track list in blog entry. I have also posted all previous track lists to their respective blog entries.
