Decibel Download of the Day - Derek Plaslaiko

I’m slammed with work so I can’t do too much of a post, but today’s download arrives courtesy of NYC’s WNYU and Tim Sweeney (who killed at his Club Pop appearance a few weeks ago), source of the highly recommended Beats in Space podcast/archive. The music is provided by NYC by way of Detroit’s Derek Plaslaiko, Bunker resident and Spectral artist. If you haven’t seen Plaslaiko play, know that the man knows his techno. His mix here starts with Carl Craig, so he’s already got my support, but he can take tours through Detroit, minimal, and any other nerdy techno subgenre you care to call out. Plaslaiko plays good tracks, and that’s what really matters.

in the late 90s plaslaiko was a resident dj at motor in hammtrammck [detroit] mi, often playing support for whatever big name was on the bill for the night. deep, dark, spaced out techno soul - i've spent years scouring record bins searching for that sound, but in almost a decade i've found a handful of tracks that come close to it.
