Podcast 308: Gingy & Bordello

Montreal's Turbo label has undergone quite the transformation in the past year or so. Headed up by Tiga, the imprint was once known for its goofy nature, not to mention its love for various strains of electro and party-starting house. These days, however, it's increasingly viewed as an outpost for raw, rough-and-tumble techno. And if last year's New Jack Techno compilation was a sort of mission statement, then Canadian duo Gingy & Bordello just might be the poster boys for Turbo's new direction. This week sees the pair releasing Saturday Night Fervor, a new EP and the second installment of the label's three-part Warehouse Series, so we figured now would be a good time to see what Gingy & Bordello could do if given the chance to put together an XLR8R podcast. In truth, the hour-long mix finds the pair weaving together a number of dark and driving techno tracks. Light on melody but heavy on pulsing rhythms and analog grit, it's full of rough-edged, late-night grooves—old and new. Between this mix and the Robert Hood remix from Saturday Night Fervor—which has smartly been included in the podcast—it certainly seems that the duo knows its techno.
