JW / Electronica Classics 005: Sven Vath's 1997 Essential Mix

This week's set is my favorite actual "techno" mix of all time. I know the word techno gets tossed around as kind of the umbrella term for electronic music (whereas I prefer "electronica" to encompass it all), so this is actually the mix I use to showcase what true techno sounds like.

Originally broadcast in 1997, I first heard it in 2003 when Radio 1 rebroadcast it as part of their Love Parade Weekend. The first 20 minutes or so of this mix are especially good. Just delightfully synthetic, artificial, and seemingly mathematical. I still cue it up when I need to engage in heavy mental Stats homework.
