10 years of armyoftechno.com


Today marks the 10th anniversary of armyoftechno.com.  As promised, today we would like to announce the winner of our $5000 contest.  Anthony Hudson of Cincinnati, Ohio has proven to be our number one fan by answering our trivia contest questions with honor and integrity.  He has decided to forgo the prize money and told us he would rather see the company invest in our future growth.  We congratulate Tony on winning our contest and hope that more people will compete in future contests.

This will be the last post on our Google blog.  We are working on some really exciting things at Army of Techno and plan on unveiling them later this year.  Our number one priority is a redesign of  the site.  Many of our other projects will remain behind the scenes until they are ready.  I hope you have enjoyed the last ten years of armyoftechno.com.  We have reached 100s of thousands of listeners and are very humbled by the amount of music that has been downloaded from the site.  Thank you for joining us on our journey from a leaky basement in Ann Arbor to a dock in Long Beach Harbor.

We love all of you.

Stay tuned,

Army of Techno

PC - Everything Mix


So I did a really unique mix today.  I incorporated both my Roland MC-909s, my MacBook Pro and my Technics turntable.  5 total sources of sound as I was using my Mbox and onboard soundcard to play Reason tracks and iTunes on my MacBook Pro.  I sampled two articles using Mac's Speak function:

Does Nintendo stand a chance this holiday? 
- GamesIndustry International

Using Google Glass: A series of awkward encounters 
- AppleInsider

I played two records:

Negativland's Helter Stupid

The Alan Parsons Project - I Robot

The mix includes originally produced Reason and MC909 tracks and my vocals as well.  It is 1 hour and 43 seconds long.

It is rough around the edges, but I hope you enjoy it.
