Rainer Weichhold "Infernal"
German house and techno producer Rainer Weichhold throws a bit of a twist into his repertoire with his latest single, "Infernal." The veteran DJ seems to try something new—making techno beats with the sounds of classic disco. Instead of hypnotic synth and drum machine loops, Weichhold used samples of live drums and percussion, bass guitar, and string sections to bring his grooves to life. The affect is still as chilly as any run-of-the-mill techno track, but "Infernal" stands apart thanks to its unique sonic lineage.
