The hypnotic minimal techno tune, which turns out, oddly, to be the perfect soundtrack for voguing '80s downtown queens — RIP Willie, Anji, Pepper, Venus — was taken from Teutonic duo Tiefschwarz's Essential Mix for BBC's Radio 1, and before this explanation gets any more complicated, just look it up and fall into a Yubehole about it, already. Better yet, check out Tiefschwarz live (they're hot, they're brothers — why not?), courtesy of Blasthaus at Mighty on Dec. 15. German techno soul isn't, amazingly, oxymoronic.
