Livi’s Cream of Techno Soup: Heavy and Hearty

For her Szentek debut, Livi has cooked up a storm by combining classic techno stompers with tantalizing electro bumps for a heavy and hearty sound.

Cooking instructions: heat on hob or microwave for 3-5 minutes. Serve piping hot, turn the volume up and enjoy.  

Now available on our Soundcloud and Mixcloud accounts.

Music never lets you down
Puts a smile on your face
Anytime, any place
Dancing helps relieve the pain
Soothes your mind, makes you happy again
Listen to those dancing feet
Close your eyes and let go
But it don't mean a thing
If it ain't got that swing
Bop-shoo-wa, bop-shoo-wa, bop-shoo-wa
