JEFF MILLS EDIT-17

So we have just one more sleep to go before we get to celebrate 15 years of TECHNO in Melbourne with you all! So to fire up you up just one last time, we shall feature the last of our residents, our TECHNO terrorist, Matt Radovich.

We have asked each of our residents some questions about their time with MTC. Here are Peter’s answers.

15 years of TECHNO is a long time. For the people that havent been with you for the whole 15 years, what are some memorable moments that you fondly remember from your experience at MTC.

Well the first party at the Grand in Richmond, I will never forget that day/night, it was where it all began, it was a pretty special night for me. Also walking down those stairs at Deep 11 (The Mercat), from the street, then you enter that smoke filled room, with TECHNO blaring! Thinking about our parties at Deep 11 still gives me goosebumps! They really were the best of times. Also our parties we had downstairs at the Espy, they were pretty fun parties, the security might not have liked us, but we had some good fun in there. Also some of the joint parties we were lucky enough to do some awesome crews in Melbourne. The Christmas parties we did with Stable Music when we took over the whole Mercat, upstairs and downstairs, they were pretty fucking crazy parties! Hosting acts like Deetron and Technasia with the gang at Hardware, they were some fucking mental parties too.

Name some stand TECHNO tracks that remind you of MTC.

DJ Rush – Freaks On Hubbard ( DJ Shufflemaster Mix ) –

Surgeon – Magneze –

Jeff Mills – Step to enchantment –

Regis – Guiltless –

Planetary Assault Systems – The Drone Sector –

What’s that one MTC party you will never forget and why?

This is a hard question to answer cos we have had some pretty fucking great times over the 15 years, some of the early parties at the Portland Hotel were fucking special. And some of Parties we had at Deep 11 were unforgettable, but there are two definite standouts for me, our 10th Birthday with Steve Rachmad and our 14th Birthday with the Detroit TECHNO Militia! They were definitely two of the best parties MTC has ever done, in my opinion.

Over the years MTC has had a few international and local guests. Which local and international DJ and local live act really stood out to you?

This is kind of a cop out of an answer, but I’ve really liked everyone we have put one, I don’t think we’ve ever booked anyone I didn’t enjoy, International or Local. But If I have to pick a couple, I would have to say, Steve Rachmad, The Detroit TECHNO Militia (Bill and Tom), Mike Humphries, Deetron, Sigha and Shifted, Kazu Kimura, Steve Law, Voiteck, ACM, Haul Music Live, Viridian, Linas, Jani Ho, Simon Slieker, Sam, Craig, Jay and Peter and I really can go on, but I’m not gonna sit here and type down everyones name, I would if I could, but I’m not.

MTC has been held in quite a few of Melbourne’s excellent venues around Melbourne. Which venue was your favourite?

Number 1, Deep 11 (The Mercat Downstairs). Number 2, The Railway Hotel. Number 3, The Portland Hotel

Finally, what are you most looking forward to at the 15th birthday shindig?

I just can’t wait to play some Fucking TECHNO with my MTC family and catching up with a lot of old friends and making some new ones too. And I’m really looking forward to having a few Melbourne Bitters with everyone too.
