    And there's still plenty of quality techno coming out of Detroit. This is one of the last records I bought:

    Jeff Mills could fill a thread all on his own with amazing music, from his early mixes as the Wizard, to his time in Final Cut, Underground Resistance (one of the best record labels ever), his utterly pounding Waveform Transmission releases, his Purpose Maker releases (which pretty much set the direction techno took in the late '90s) or the arty techno that he has been pouring out for the last decade.

    Here's a old favourite from his Purpose Maker period:

    That Shake retrospective on Rush Hour is amazing. All the tracks are quality.
    Spot the Steely Dan sample in this one:
    Shake - Arise:
    TUNE!

    My favourite Detroit track:
    Inner City- Praise (MAYDAY MIX):
    Put it on loud and play it all the way through. Wait for the 'drop' and feel that euphoric dancefloor rush. Shame the only time I've heard it out is when I played it and that was only a house party.

    [I'm actually fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to remix one of his tunes: http://www.beatport.com/track/device-nasty-bobbys-fuck-detroit-mix/679076 ]

    I've always really loved this track, don't think it's really the purest Detroit Techno, it's probably a bit too fast and not melancholic enough, but played on a good system it sounds devastating:
