    This week's podcast is a special one; courtesy of the Los Angeles-based brotherly duo of Vidal and Vangelis Vargas, better known as Raiz. The twosome are born-and-bred products of L.A., absorbing the culture of latin freestyle and electro and somehow, someway, breaking down the walls of techno in the fair city they grew up in. In 2002, the duo (along with fellow producer Drumcell) started Droid Behavior, a music collective that has grown into a constantly evolving machine techno; working with artists in label capacities (Droid Recordings) as well as throwing events (Interface) or putting out their own extensive podcast series. Oh, and before we forget, Raiz also makes some brilliant techno, and have been pounding out releases on Electric Deluxe, Historia y Violencia and their own imprint, Droid Recordings. Recently, however, the twosome put out a release on another new label venture, VRV, a label project that will "feature conceptual, thematic releases relating the ideas, experiences, and emotions of the artists over a functional dance floor backbone. " Well put, as the introduction by the brothers Vargas is nothing short of stellar. Needless to say, it's a no-brainer to have them contribute to the URB podcast series; locally-sourced techno that's not only amicable to any dancefloor situation, but is perfectly suited for some mental fist-pumping via headphones. Check out the tracklist down below, and most importantly, enjoy the vibes.
