Polymath doesn’t take anything for granted. (Unless it’s bacon, he loves his bacon in the morning.) When it comes to techno though, we can all have a slice. In the great spirit of being a good m808 he is giving away new track “Pringo” for free! Apparently it sounds “nothing like all the new stuff” he is making, so freak out to the crunchy jams while they’re still crunchy.
Download: Polymath “Pringo”
It might not quiet have the nutritious value of last year’s “Protein” minimix, but feel free to check out my “Mullet” minimix! Featuring 10 minutes of my favourite House/Disco/Techno right now…and maybe just a couple of cheeky previews of upcoming tracks from some MUCK artists!
