#MixMonday: Rebekah Live at Bloody Sound, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Suppose you were responsible for drafting a roster of elite female techno DJs to compete against the electronic music world. To start, you might want a face (or hair) of the franchise like Nicole Moudaber, or a DJ rooted in Detroit—Magda? From here you might approach with the grace of Ibiza’s own tINI or the beauty of Sweden’s Ida Engberg. But to completely confirm that all dancefloors have been sufficiently smashed, we need not look any further than Birmingham, England’s Rebekah.
Bringing her CLR brand of hard techno, Rebekah leaves little doubt of destruction on this November night in Buenos Aires. While we recommend giving this #MixMonday your full two-hour attention, we’ve laid out the highlights for you:
[11:00] – Rebekah drops, “Back The Funk Up” by Steve Poindexter, Submerge, and Ricardo Garduno. This is the first of very few vocal samples in the mix, which instruct us to “Work that shit.” We oblige.
[33:00-46:00] – Just past the quarter-pole mark, we’re treated to a stretch of intergalactic bombs beginning with CTRLS’ “Modular Framework” and ending with Joachim Spieth’s “Never Mind.”
[56:00-1:05:00] – What does a Ben Sims remix, an etheral techno track, and a four-to-the-floor clinic all have in common? They can be found at the halfway point of a Rebekah set.
[1:23:00-1:37:00] – If you haven’t heard of fellow U.K. duo, Clouds, now you have. Rebekah plays their track “Radical Cutting Methods” followed by two from South American icon Juan Pablo Pfirter, and a taste of her own hypnotic production entitled, “Self Destruct,” from her Cycles EP [CLR].
[1:51:40] – Rebekah plays a Gary Beck tune—that’s not “Video Siren”. Coming off Beck’s recent BEK016 release, The Big Smoke EP, she closes out our #MixMonday with “Leave It.”
