Live recording from the Uptown Arts Bar in Kansas City on February 28th, 2014 for the kansascitytechno.com monthly jux·ta·pose 1 year anniversary party.
“Here’s a 2 hour set from a show I played in Kansas City a while back. A little bit of bang and a little bit of jack for your body…This was a fun one. There may or may not be some slop moments, as I was jumping around and having a good time. Despite any slop, I think it’s got good energy, so here ya go. :)” – DJ Shiva
Death of a body. Stranded, because no one was here when it happened. They say spirits live in this house, but their only evidence is the distant screaming and hard knocking, until now. Enter, Axkan in his first Rheostatus appearance with a dark, hard hitting EP, along side Komprezzor and Obstruct on remix duties.

Names: Jade Reed & Mustafa Avdic
DJ Alias: Cloudy with a Chance of Techno
City: Des Moines, IA
How long have you been DJing dance music?
12 years for both of us. 24 years combined
What was the first record you purchased?
Mustafa: Don’t remember because i gave it away.
Jade: With no record shops in iowa i ended up online and purchased 10 records to get me on my way. Chris Cargo, Sasha, Digweed, and others along that line.
How was “Cloudy With A Chance of Techno” formed?
A few studio sessions and a couple of mixes together, led us to the dance floor in St. Louis where we played a 5hr set alongside our friend Luke Hansen. Shortly after, we got an offer from Aerotek Recordings, and are currently working on a project for A Squared Muzik.
Tell us about your crew, Ekvilibrium.
A group of guys who believe in the techno movement. We all come from different backgrounds, but the music brought us together. All of us have families, jobs, and other responsibilities, but we also dedicate a lot of time to promotion and production of our events.
What drew you to the type of dance music that you currently play?
Berlin and Detroit Techno!
You recently built a sound system. How has that impacted or changed your events?
Having a sound system has made life easier for us, that’s for sure! Both of us believe that quality is essential, and so does the rest of our crew. The only difference now is that we don’t have to rent sound out and can focus funds on talent.
Your latest events have featured Kyle Geiger, Komprezzor and Truncate. How are the techno headliners being received?
Techno has always thrived in Iowa. All thanks to the hard work of a few pioneers who helped carve the way for most of us today. A good amount of Iowans migrate to Detroit for Movement Electronic Music Festival, and our focus has been to create the same experience for those who fall in love with techno. It’s what motivates both of us!
What do you think can be done to get the under 30 crowd in the US interested in house and techno?
No two events are alike, and we constantly strive to innovate our music, as well as our events. Again, quality is important! This is why we’ve recently invested time in and money into 3-D projection. To us, the auditory and visual aspects of an event should always be top notch. We’ve never created the same setup, nor do we try to be like anyone else. To us, it is a big canvas, and each time we throw different paint on it.
What do you see in the future for “Cloudy With A Chance of Techno”?
As of late, our studio sessions have been phenomenal. We learn more each time we get a chance to sit down and produce a track. We enjoy showcasing our original work at events; another thing that motivates us both. Bottomline is that we’d like to showcase a live techno set in the near future!
When is the best time to listen to dance music?
When you don’t wanna sleep!
What do you order at the bar?
A touch of kickdrum, one dash of bass, two cups of hi-hats, plenty of cowbell, and a vacation to Europe! Next question!
