MP3: RQ Mix 016 - Gobby - Bad Food Place

The Harlem-based Gobby caught our ears last year and has held our attention since with a steady stream of completely alien mutant techno hits coming out of his youtube channel. While that side of things has dried up in recent months, with Gobby getting the much deserved official release of his New Hat EP on fashion-forward NYC imprint UNO, his output this year is really on another level, channeling early 90s Belgian/German techno.

In keeping with the increasingly dark techno (think Tresor, R&S, etc) leanings of New Hat, Gobby's mix for us is cold & unforgiving, opening with the industrial noisescapes of Merzbow and easing us into the Detroit-techno-pulse with Robert Hood. There are a couple of unreleased Gobby tracks here too, and the UNO website suggests more recordings are set to surface in the near future. Perhaps a sign of things to come?
