Neon Jung – Too Many Facets

Released in the first half of 2011, the b-side on Neon Jung‘s 10-inch on Magic Wire is a track that deserves a late mention here. Ten years ago, tracks like this weren’t that unusual and were coined broken techno. This hybrid of techno and broken beat (as if that wasn’t a hybrid of everything already) was put on the map by almost forgotten names like Nu Era, Titonton or Seiji’s Opaque moniker.

If you missed the Neon Jung’s record the first time, you can still get physical copies from Piccadilly or HHV. Digital releases can be found on Bleep or Boomkat.

For more music like this, I strongly recommend 2002’s Soul in Motion compilation.
