    I love Detroit Techno, been a collector since the early days of Cybotron, Model 500 etc.

    Here's a few tunes from late 80's classics to more recent stuff, admittedly some of these are crossover records, stuff like "Bug In The Bassbin" and Kyle Hall's "Ghosten" could quite easily be classified as Jazz or House records.

    Ta. Think the bloke who runs the label knows him from somewhere. I certainly didn't name it the 'F*ck Detroit' mix though, it still makes me cringe to this day.

    I was going to wax lyrical about how recent underground resistance is every bit as good as the golden age stuff, then I noticed the tracks I was planning on posting were 10 years old. :oops:

    fuck time.

    it says 'dedicated to the memory of Jaco Pastorius' in the runout groove on this iirc. :D I think it's my favourite UR tune.

    Honestly, it's tagged as deep house but this is solid modern detroit techno. Creme delivering the goods as per usual.

    Been listening to a lot of (uh, not sure what you'd class it as today.) Lots of longform trippy German techno which was called trance(oh how I despise that word)-techno back in the day, stuff like Spicelab, ongaku, phasis, be-zet and Scan X from France.

    And remembered this somewhat overlooked bomb from detroit

    Has a real EBM vibe to it. Class stuff.

    Listening to X-102 Discovers The Rings Of Saturn, which is a concept album involving approaching Saturn, passing the moons and the rings of the planet before landing on the surface. The vinyl version has locked grooves on it, so when you look at the 12"s, they resemble the rings of Saturn. Mike Banks, Jeff Mills and Rob Hood produced it and the inimitable Ron Murphy cut it. It's awesome
    You can listen to it here:
    and hear Ron Murphy talking about cutting it here:

    is it any good though? I saw UR live about 10 years ago and they were dull as fuck.
  27. dialectician


    Few of the UR live shows seem to be let's do electronic jazz that sounds like techno rather than how they sound on record, I.E: techno with jazz influences. So you don't really get much of their rougher stuff, if at all.

    It's a shame, would love to see a set of UR going through their cold and soulless (I use this in a good way) electro records.

    I mean I get that Mike Banks doesn't want to dish out a set full of classic UR bangers and that's totally understandable, but I dunno, this is exactly one of the sets I'm talking about. not very machinelike at all, which is the best part of UR's music, marrying machine music with jazz/funk influences.

    They did Final Frontier when I saw 'em, not just the jazzy stuff. It just all sounded pretty flat tbh.
