i really like Dillinjas DnB 'remix' of this - a few versions of this, but i like this one
Oh yeah got that too The original's the reason why they called that particular sub a Reese bass
i was planning on calling my first born (boy or girl) Reese (after the bline)...not had the chance yet
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.
check this out from 1982 - the b-side of 'cosmic cars'
remember you playing that at fischo and being boggled by it! great track
Spoiler: John Beltran - Placid Angles
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.
it says 'dedicated to the memory of Jaco Pastorius' in the runout groove on this iirc. 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.
Dug this out the other day...I love this, classic Gerald Mitchell on keys.
New Model 500 album out this month
Minimal, deep, sexy acid roller from Claude.
I was at the Tribal Gathering. Wonderful day/night.
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.
Not Detroit Techno but Detroit Emerald.
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

and hear Ron Murphy talking about cutting it here:
dialectician killer b
Really liking this new track...
Underground Resistance live at Dimension Festi the other day
is it any good though? I saw UR live about 10 years ago and they were dull as fuck.
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.
Oh and now they've gone into Jaguar. instant buzzkill.
