This time on 14tracks:

“Life Is A Waveform: Underground Resistance ”

The legacy of Underground Resistance flows deep through the last 20 years of electronic music history. Originally a duo consisting of "Mad" Mike Banks and Jeff Mills, the collective was reinforced by the addition of Robert Hood and a militant strategy of sonic revolution against the mediocrity of mainstream audio and visual culture was formed. This manifested itself over the 90's and into the 00's through a series of seminal records from the label's core members, most notably the innate techno soul of "Mad" MIke Banks, James "Suburban Knight" Pennington's dystopian dreams, and the enigmatic mythology of Drexciya. Their political rhetoric and uncompromising sound irreversibly infiltrated like-minded outposts from Berlin to Manchester and Sao Paolo, programming waveforms that would influence an oncoming generation of artists like Basic Channel, thinkers like Kodwo Eshun and Kode 9 and dancers just like you. For this collection we've trawled the archives to cover just a fraction of the Underground Resistance spectrum to hopefully convey the same feelings they gave us in the first place all those years ago...

“Timeless.”

Probably the most educative and uplifting selection on 14 tracks.. full of classics, inspired techfunk monsters... well done!

“ya fucking dancer!”

UR are, and always will be, the corner stone of what hard Detriot Techno can and should be. I haven't heard a lot of these before now but I'm utterly, utterly blown away by their body of work from their inception until the present day. Black Dog did a set for RA featuring just UR tracks a while back and that, like these 14tracks, just made my week. Viva la resistance!

“That's what I'm talkin bout...”

God this shit is SUCH a breath of fresh air! My ears are doing backflips over this one. Electronic music made by people who sound like they actually know what music is. Big ups Boomkat - nice job!

“The most influential label.......”

... in existence IMHO

Missing some core seminal tracks in the 14 selected, but not a bad 14 to choose from.
Track down this interview Mike did for a Detroit radio station ... its one of only a handful he has ever done ... the perfect start into the history of UR

“More recent UR goodness”

Mark Flash, new boy on the UR block, has done this amazing remix, it was out just a couple of months ago

& awesome!

i think the selection picks the best tracks from what is available in the boomkat catalogue. admittedly there's loads of tracks missing... but if this has inspired you, make sure to hunt out more Drexciya and the Red Planet releases. maybe even buy some of their vinyl!!! ;)

@ Falcao, yeah that Mark Flash mix is great. it shows they're listening to new or different stuff that you may not necessarily expect them to.

“Techno with real depth”

it's pretty rare, but UR have it in spades. Some favourites in here including 'Codebreaker', and of course DJ Rolando's 'The Jaguar'. I could easily pick 14 tracks of just Drexciya, and the Martian's 'Red Planet' series so can imagine just how difficult it would be to limit across the UR camp as a whole. Would have liked to have seen some of Frankie Fultz brilliant artwork too.

“More UR goodies...”

For those grooving this great 14 tracks set, you might also want to check out (in addition) DJ Rolando's Aztec Mystic Mix - a nice full length compilation featuring contributions from across the UR stable - UR (of course), Aztec Mystic, The Martian, Drexciya, Suburban Knight etc. A real shiner.
