Warm up w/ disco dubs and early Detroit house before an expansive tag-team set of Detroit techno. From Music Institute-era KMS Records to the darkest aquatic depths of electronic funk, minimal bleep and warm 313 techno soul classics. With Kevin Saunderson’s recent announcement of the the 2005 FUSE-in Detroit Festival, a new Motor City spotlight was callin’ …and it certainly won’t be our last!

Matt solo 2 deck trek.

Part 1 > midtempo gradual wind-up w/ Larry Levan’s NYC Peech Boys oddity mixed into a Hall & Oates ultra-deep drumbox groove. MARRS b-side that is my favorite 4 minutes in 4AD label history. Laid back italo extends the groove until New Order’s Ecstacy turns a corner to electro from Carl Finlow to Kraftwerk, rare UR plus a breakers cut from Hashim.

Part 2 > take I-94 from Chicago to Detroit (via Carl Craig remixing Ron Trent’s anthem) where Dan Bell and Rob Hood bring minimal funk. Natural direct-drive rhythms from Mills as Purpose Maker keep up room pressure. New music from Berlin’s Dieb: very dark abstract funk on new techno label from Rome. A pensive wind-down from Dutch duo The Connection Machine: their full-length release finally sees daylight (via DownLow), following their now legendary EP on Planet E over a decade ago.
