“14 tracks: Detroit Techno beyond the Motor City”

Detroit Techno has for some time now permeated and influenced clubs and music makers across the world, with those signature strings and warm chords defining a whole movement in electronic music over the last 20 years. Of course, there's always been a symbiosis at work, with long established links and sound exchanges between Detroit and Berlin's Heroin House, Warp's Artificial Intelligence movement and Holland's Eevolute to name just three. Past the first wave of Motor City innovators - Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May (aka The Belleville Three), who owed much of their early commercial success to their sizeable British following, the next wave of Detroit producers (Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, Kenny Larkin, UR etc) have influenced European dance culture so deeply that this selection just barely dips in to the world of Detroit Techno produced beyond the Motor City...

“Wladimir M”

Blimey that Wladimir M tune is so much like 'Jam The Box'...amazing tune.

“It's neo detroit”

Many of the artists make Detroit "like" music. I'd call it Neo Detroit.

“good stuff”

This 14 trax idea is superb. i've only got wind off it a few weeks but its certainly a great way to expand music collections. how about a week dedicated to the great pete namlook?

“Garnier Shame”

Its a real shame that this collection misses one of, if not the greatest European ambassador for Detroit: Laurent Garnier.

On 09 Oct 18:24 Mike Adlington said:

“Garnier”

Garnier would have been totally boring and obvious. So much better that these selections throw in unfamiliar names, i want to find out about new music, not just hear props to big artists everybody knows. No disrespect Mr Garnier.

On 09 Oct 18:42 Adam Felix said:

“agree”

Garnier would have been obvious. I really like this selection.

“Fantastic”

Amazing selection of Detroit buisness.I have just realised my brother and i have the original copy of 'Evil' by Wladimir M on vinyl from back in the day!What an amazing record,great memories of it playing on our mix tapes in cars after a mental night of raving in the eary nineties!14 trax is a great idea and i will be buying all of these,as well as the dubstep selection from a few weeks back.Keep up the good work Boomkat!

“Garnier”

Glad to see you're all well stocked with Garnier's catalogue! I just thought it odd the list contained two of his protegés - Lig and DJINXX - but didn't mention not the man himself...
