dd21: High Heel Techno (2001)

This mix is in a tie with “No Carrier” for my favorite techno mixes. I believe 2001 was the renaissance period for European hard techno. From the original description:

“With clubbier styled sounds fused together with the harder elements lately, the title “high heel techno” seemed apt, as my techno roots are firmly planted from watching the drag-queens do their thing on the Limelight club’s dance floor in NYC. Back and forth, these thin, muscle-bound monsters would show each other who could strut their shit the best in 1992.”
