Ural 13 Diktators – Techno Is Dead (U13007) released!
Ural 13 Diktators – Techno Is Dead (U13007) is now available digitally!
Techno Is Dead is the second album from Ural 13 Diktators. It’s a crossover between the whole musical scene of 80s through Hi-NRG disco to rock and pop without falling to ride with cheap clichés or ripped samples. Released originally in 2002 as 3×12″ vinyl and digipak CD, selling close to 10.000 copies together. Digital reissue and one bonus track in 2013 with the original solid mastering by Mika Jussila / Finnvox retained.
The full length album is dedicated to Techno music (R.I.P 1982-2002). Techno was born in 1982 to the loving family of Hi-NRG producers. It is obvious that techno wasn’t invented by some people so often claimed responsible for but these Hi-NRG innovators (like Patrcik Cowley with his Tech-No-Logical World) way back in 1982. Techno had its moment of glory ten years ago but because of lack of respect and knowledge of music history techno has degenerated during the past few years.
But after listening through the album you might think is Techno really dead? Or has the new renaissance just begun?
