Rents – Really Underground {mtkdj05}

Artist: Rents
Really Underground
Catalog #:
Release Date:

Portugese designer and all-round ‘nice guy’, Rents, who’s been helping us out on our cover-pictures of late, weighs in with another DJ set, this time exclusive, and it’s an entirely ‘scene’-based mix, covering .MOD and .MP3s from the weird but lovely ‘demo-scene’ that Monotonik+211+friends has grown out of.

Highlights? Dharma and Vim’s former Mono releases, lots of sublime Dune (BrothomStates) material, Urban Shakedown’s famous Amiga-written chart hit, and a nod to the Bitmap Brothers with the “Gods” .MOD theme – still funky+stylish after all these years.

We deliver this mix in 32kbps mp3, which we prefer to realaudio, quite often – hope you like it too.
