Podcast 63: Techno Tear Up with Kontrol S.F.

Proclaimed by many to be one of North America's most respected techno events, Kontrol has been bringing some of the genre's most esteemed names to San Francisco since June of 2005, from old-school legends like Josh Wink, Daniel Bell, and Baby Ford to a younger generation that includes Matthew Dear, Modeselektor, Paco Osuna, and Alex Smoke. Pass through the front door of the EndUp, where the party is currently held, and it's pretty much guaranteed you'll spend the next several hours on the dancefloor.

Of course, if you happen to be on the other side of the country and can't cough up the plane fare to make the crew's December 6 event, there's the option of downloading the latest installment of the XLR8R podcast. For this edition, which we've dubbed Techno Tear Up, the Kontrol guys contributed an hour-long, exclusive mix that showcases the range of sounds you'd hear at one of their parties. From deep and dubby to chunky, organic house and dark, minimal techno, this is the next best thing to actually attending the event.

too bad the dancefloor of the Endup is about 1/12th the size of the entire club, holding at most 30 people (if you pack em in tight)...
