“When Smoke Machine started doing parties in Taipei, and then created a revered online mix series, it was clear that it was the work of people with impeccable taste. One of them was Diskonnected, once a resident at the beloved Taiwan club Korner who now posts up at Pawnshop and 宀 in Hong Kong. He’s also behind Organik, a festival that takes place on the Northern coast of Taiwan and has become one of the world’s top techno gatherings in just over a decade. Everything Diskonnected does is executed with patience and class, but don’t mistake that for restraint. On his RA Podcast, we hear a snippet of an all-night set recorded at 宀 earlier this year, and it begins with some heavily broken, UK-style club music, keeping at this open-ended view of techno as it barrels on for two hours, gradually getting faster all the while. It’s clichéd to say that if you know you know, but truly, anyone who knows about Diskonnected knows that he’s one of the world’s greatest techno DJs. He has a style and flair that feels both old-school—or maybe just late ’00s—but also cutting-edge.”
