It’s going to be a heavy weekend for most of you this weekend, Awakenings, Canada Day Weekend, night time. What ever your excuse is to cut loose and party have some more tracks on YouTube to help you get through it all. First up we have the heavy hitter, Rock The Disco released back in 2003 on Working Vinyl Records 005.
And just to keep your weekend going we’ve uploaded a classic collaboration between Chris Liberator & Android & Patrick DSP recorded in NepTune Studios, Canada back in 2003 for Maximum Minimum Records on Envy 347. This Acid Techno number will have you grooving in no time.
Miss Djax and Patrick DSP have often spoken about their influences and experience within the music industry. It was evident that their musical background and love for electronic music had a strong resemblance.
This, combined with the mutual respect for each others work, made the collaboration between these two versatile artists the logical next step.
In May of this year they came together in Eindhoven for a ten day non-stop studio session and recorded their album ‘Techno Crusaders‘. They also worked on their live performance which debuted on June the 30th at Awakenings Festival 2012.
‘Techno Crusaders‘ is a culmination of everything that brought these two techno masters into electronic music years ago: Techno, Acid, Detroit, Chicago, Disco, House and Rave. The album, with its 14 tracks, clearly reveals their old school roots and future vision.
Watch the video for the title track ‘Techno Crusaders‘:
The album release will include the full Live Performance from the Awakenings Festival ;2012 as a bonus feature!Miss Djax & Patrick DSP – Techno Crusaders – Djax-Up-22 Release 11 September 2012

Patrick DSP has been smashing sound systems around the world for several decades, starting in his native Canada, and finally landing himself in Berlin, where he currently resides. Beginning his campaign of techno in the mid 90s in Toronto, he soon delved into the production side of things, and eventually managing. A quick study in the technical realm, he fast found himself manning the buttons for renowned labels such as Kne’ Deep Records and Unknown Forces, providing mastering, production and remixes for various labels, all the while building his repertoire of twisted pristine sounds.
In between jumping from Canada, to Brazil, to Berlin, Patrick managed to expand his abilities, not only making music from film scores to blistering techno, but also using his mastery of production to teach others their way around a studio, giving classes and lectures around the world. Never one to rest on his laurels, he was also performing across Europe, South America and North America, spreading his techno sound from intimate local clubs to festivals such as the Love Parade in Germany, ADE, MayDay, Awakenings, Fabrik, Tresor and many more.
His musical skills, along with his diverse range of technical ability, have not only resulted in an impressive discography of international releases, but have also allowed him to collaborate with some of the most talented names in techno, earning him the reputation of a true techno Renaissance man. DJ, Live Performer, Producer/Composer, Remixer, Sound Designer, Audio Engineer, Mastering Engineer, Label Manager, and Teacher; Patrick is a force to be reckoned with in the techno world.
