Dave Clarke: Free Download of 'I Love Techno' Set
The Flanders Expo in Ghent (Belgium) was once again the backdrop to another I Love Techno edition, held on the 10th of November 2012.
Traditionally, the Red Room in Flanders Expo marked the playground of the undisputed Techno Baron: Dave Clarke. Serving a relentless techno set to the masses, Clarke's Twitter and Facebook were flooded with messages the week after, asking if this set will be available online in the near future. In the words of Dave Clarke:
"Aside from Studio Brussel wanting me to have a premonition about the exact track listing of my DJ set BEFORE my performance and despite both losing the recording they promised to deliver and subsequently putting my set up as a stream (which was never agreed and in fact was crossed out contractually), THEN listing it as my friend Boys Noize, here is the set in full."
