Terminal 313 Mix: Barely Under 140 BPM (self-made 2013)

A drawing from Fantastic Universe, December 1954

It’s not quite that the grass was greener in the 1990s but it can’t be denied that today the BPM rate of even harder, industrial tracks goes rarely over 130. It’s like a border line between serious electronic music and cheap hardstyle productions for the masses. Although the beat frequency itself should not be an objective, if we only think about extremities like Moby’s “Thousand” in 1993, fast beats have had certain appeal. All that brought me to a selection of tracks from, with a few exceptions, the last decade of the 20th century. Mostly acid and hardcore cuts that shook the rave nation, many of them my personal favorites.
