The Serbian duo of Boris Noiz and Darko Dekode continue to wreak havoc with their dark technoid selections and sets. Their recent guest session for Belfast’s DSNT crew as broadcast on Future Music FM, October 10th, is comprised of 100 minutes of pure Darkfloor techno sound. We’ve just a few copies of their début EP Output available.
The Paris based podcast Manifest invited Darko Kolar AKA Dekode AKA one half of Ontal to record a session for the mix series and over the course of 105 minutes he doesn’t disappoint. With Pan Sonic to Alva Noto, Gescom, CJ Bolland, Brothomstates, Surgeon and so much more.
Advanced Techno Research recently interviewed David Meiser – who’ll be gracing Darkfloor Sound with his 4 track EP Those Who Still Remain soon.
Their piece gives you an insight into David’s take on techno, his studio workflow, his first gig outside of his native Spain and what’s coming up in the future.
Without any doubt the most solid reference for me is Jeff Mills as he has kept loyal to the original idea of techno, being always out of trends. Regarding the Spanish scene a special mention to Boris Divider and his techno face Shadow Runner for bringing the light to the underground national scene when almost everybody else was moving erratically and without a clear direction.
Shouts going out to George McVicar & Theo Darton-Moore over at Stray Landings for taking the time to review our Output EP. It’s safe to assume we can count them as fans of the duos work.
somewhere between the ice-cold electronic precision of Alva Noto, and the merciless industrial battering of Perc or Tommy Four Seven.
The aforementioned comparisons are most relevant through opener and title track ‘Output’, which sees waves of static surging over noise-laden kicks. The charm and intensity of the track comes from the sheer mass of the sound, and the bold monotony of the loops. Indeed, this is a style that features prominently throughout their work, and has a distinctly modernised feel to the classic Throbbing Gristle-style industrial music of the UK.
‘Disorientation’ lives up to its title, mixing piercing dial-up tones with a rock solid kick snare stomp. Despite the harshness of its textures, the track packs a lot of punch, with dynamic shifts that would be perfectly suited to the more extreme end of a Techno DJ set. …

Spain’s David Meiser was recently invited to record a mix for Blind Spot’s radio show hosted by Dr. Hoffmann. As an introduction to the sounds of Meiser and his style of techno you won’t find a better recording.
This mix shows my personal meaning of the word ‘Techno’:
Steel loops, solid grooves and strong rhythmic patterns in an overall hypnotic composition.
The Serbian duo turns in a huge 117 minute session composed of some absolutely stunning sound for Secret Thirteen.
“Secret Thirteen Mix 064” is a systematic and dynamic music selection that fuses 59 magnetic records released between 1980 and 2013. This compilation contains timeless production by such striking artists as Autechre, Orphx, Emptyset, Demdike Stare, Aidan Baker, Shapednoise, Ugandan Methods, Zoviet France and other stylistically related talents.
I’d like to present you with our second release for Darkfloor Sound from Serbian duo Ontal.
Ali Wells work as Perc goes from strength to strength and we’re honoured to have his support for our forthcoming second release from Ontal. His mix, for Awakenings Festival and their mix series is a strong slab of brutalist techno.
