One Last Thing Though: Soulseek is the Coolest

If you like to continue to explore music go download Soulseek. I can't rave enough about this program. It is a P2P sharing program similar to Limewire or Napster, except you hook up with individual users and it's full of people with really good taste in music. Now I'm not gonna tell everyone my user name , but you email me with your user name, I'll email you mine. Then you can browse and download everything on my computer.

Frustrated Flowers

Today I have decided to post a couple tracks off the Clone Records offshoot, Frustrated Flowers. If you are not familiar, Clone is an accomplished techno/electro collective out of the Netherlands. This sub-label features artists who stick with a mid-nineties Detroit percussive techno sound chocked full of ethereal synths and pads. Reminiscent of early Planet E and Transmat . It's a small label with only five records released to date, but everyone is pure quality.

Saturday, July 22, 2006

Holy Boner! It's a Weekend Bonus!

Everyone seemed to love the Davina track I posted awhile ago, so I've decided to post another pearl from 1993 that utilizes subtle samples from James Brown and The Eurthymics. Enjoy:







Shout out to the old-school souljah Ryan Gilchrist, who will be in town next weekend from San Fran. Hopefully no one will be arrested. Can't wait to see ya, bro.

Titonton Duvanté

I remember seeing Titonton Duvanté spin for the first time at an event in 1999 called "Welcome to My House 1", The first of a series of massive annual raves in Detroit. But it wasn't until I saw his live PA at DEMF 2001 that he really blew me away. His rocking percussive analog beats blend magically with pulsating synths to take you on a musical journey where scarecrows pop-n-lock down the yellowbrick road. He's from Colmubus Ohio and he has releases on Metamorphic Recordings, Environ, 2000 Black, 7th City, and Residual Recordings.


Check out his website here

Download:

Titonton Duvanté - Rugburn Starbaby 2002

Delsin, Isn't That Some Kind of Drug?

Sorry for the hold-up. I've been trying to upload a DJ set by Terrence Parker recorded at last year's Fuse-in Festival for the last few days. But after trying to upload it on several sites and changing formats many times, it doesn't look like it's going to happen. I'll try again later, but no promises. Today I'm featuring an excellent label out of Holland that loves to keep it "Detroit". Amsterdam's Delsin Records have been producing records since 1997 and have over fifty releases under their belt. I can't think of a single record they've put out that hasn't been worth buying. Their roster is full over under appreciated talent like Dimension 5, Newworldaquarium, Aardvarck, $tinkworx, Dynarec, and Deepart. So I offer up a DJ Set by Quince that features unreleased and forthcoming tracks from Delsin, plus a couple of my personal favorites off the label.

Check out Planet Delsin here.

Miles Maeda's Sunflower

This is a old mixtape that I use to listen to a lot back in the day. I found it a week ago and I can't stop listening to it. Miles Maeda's navigation through deep house is nothing short of breathtaking. Miles has been around for awhile. Making a name for himself in Chicago's rave scene throughout the nineties, he helped develop a downtempo/ambient night called "Atmospheric Audio Chair" from 93-95. Along with spinning at what seemed like every party in Chi-Town he managed to release a handful of records on classic labels like Dust Traxx and Seista. Currently by day Maeda works as a Yoga Instructor meanwhile at night he holds down a residency, seven years and counting, at Chicago's Smartbar.

Phuture - Your Only Friend (Trax Records 1988)


Adonis - H.O.U.S.E. (Acid Mix) (Black Market International 1988)

Zurpin'


Just relaxing after a day/night of drinking for the Forth of July. I could insert some kind of radical political rhetoric in connection with the holiday, but I'll spare you. Instead I'm just going to post some breezy techno stuff, while I smoke this hangover off:




Sun Electric - Monolith 1995 (I fixed the link)


Max Loderbauer and Tom Thiel started recording as Sun Electric for such labels as Tresor and R & S Records in the early nineties. I really dig the moody analog vibe of this track. This is from my favorite period of German techno when Tresor was King and labels like Basic Channel and Chain Reaction were just pushing their way up the ranks.



K. Hand - Mystery 1993


From the mistress of Detroit techno, Kelli Hand, comes a piece of excellent old-school heaviness off another Tresor Comp.



Q-Moog - All My Love 1996


A little known release from this New York to Detroit transplant off of the Belgian record label SSR. This whole album, which is entitled The Arc Of Blueness, is full of jazzy trip-hop and ambient house brilliancy!

It's a Lovelee Dae and The Sun is Shining



Woke up this morning, I've got a few days off work, the sun is shining and the sky is clear blue. Here's a batch of tunes that reflect that mood:



Andres - Piece of Mind 1997

Excellent stuff under Dj Dez's moniker Andrés from Moodymann's KDJ Records


Isaac Hayes - I Can't Turn Around (Ron Hardy Re-edit) 1980's

Everyone loved the first Ron Hardy posting so I put up this re-edit he did on a reel to reel for your enjoyment.

Rick Wade - Angry Pimp 1997

From Detroit house head Rick Wade off an ep of the same name on Harmonie Park


Kerrier District - Disclix 2004

I know, I know. This song has track has knothing to do with Detroit or Chicago, but it's a great piece of sunshine from Luke Vibert's, Metro Area/Envron Record-inspired, Kerrier District project.


Dwayne Jensen - My People 2002

Last one today is from Another man high up in the ranks in the Detroit house/techno scene, Dwayne Jensen. This one's off the Detroit Beatdown (Volume One) compilation on Third Ear Recordings.

I'm almost finished with this month's installment of aQUADIO which will be up on the 15th. This months mix is full of great trax and will be faster paced than last month.

Planet E


Planet E is one of those record labels where you have to go out and get every release. Started by Carl Craig in the mid nineties it has been an interigal part of Detroit's second wave. Releases such as Moodymann - Silentintroduction and Recloose - Cardiology helped to update the Detroit sound for a new generation without playing into "the rave culture" of the time. Maintaining it's soul through a period when electronica became a seller's market. For the last couple of years the label has been laying low, Craig has been using it primailarly to publish his own record under names like 69 and Tres Demented . I went through and tried to find some of my favorites from the label. Attention: I started using Sendspace, so the link to download is at the bottom of the page. Enjoy.



Paperclip People - Climax 1998 (just for those who don't already know)

Buy the cd here


Recloose - Kapiti Dream 2001

Buy it here


Newworldaquarium - trespassers 2002


Also want to mention that I will be posting a compressed zip. file called FREEK CASSETTE on Friday. This will be monthly feature that is essentially a "mixtape" type of thing with an extremely eclectic variety of (Non-techno....For the most part) music. I guarantee it'll be, if nothing else, interesting.

This Ain't No Schranz


Well I'm back from a long weekend and as promised I'm posting a mix from the only man in the techno with his own comic book, mister Alan Oldham aka DJ T-1000. This mix is actually a retrospective label mix of Oldham's own Generator Records. He has also has releases on Transmat, Djax-Up-Beats, +8, New Religion and many others. Originally from Detroit now residing in Chicago, Oldham is currently involved in a slew of diverse projects which include a new original album coming out soon called "The Art of Transformation", filmmaking, illustrating a series of comic books, and most interestingly a new unnamed trip-hop venture. I will (hopefully) be going to see him at the end of July at Cortktown in, but his best sets were played out on three turntables in the abandoned buildings outlying Detroit during the late nineties. This mix is aptly named "supercollider" and is T-1000 at his peek playing, mainly, his own productions. It is essential for any fan of warehouse shaking beats.

Sticking with the "warehouse-shaking" theme I've included an new song that does a good job updating DJ Funk' s booty classic "Work it". Q-ic - Boo(s)tylicious is from the "Be Free" ep on Reaktion which you can purchase here. It's fresh and clean with old school sensibility. Check it out:


Q-ic - Boo(s)tylicious 2006



Finally a solid track from the Auftrieb label back in 96 by Wolfgang Voigt & Ingmar Koch. Between this duo they have recorded under about twenty different monikers, but most notably under the M.F.A., Air Liquide, and Gas aliases. This one comes under the pseudonym Lovecore. Both Voight & Koch are pioneers of the Cologne minimal sound which roots extend to Detroit via other Germany labels such as Tresor. It's one of those tracks where the bass swirls around your head and the massive kick could just go on for hours, it's pure heat. Download below:

Lovecore III - A1 Untitled 1996

Tasty Nuggets


Today we will start off with a little know nugget by Davina called "Don't You Want It". Produced in 1992 by Mister "Mad" Mike Banks who heads up Detroit premier label & group, Underground Resistance. The mix of Davina's incredibly sexy vocals and Mike Banks warm analog instrumentation rivals some of Motown's best when I comes to who can breath the most soul into the music. I saw UR at the Fuse-In Festival in 2005 and I think I'd have to say it was the best show I have every seen in my 25 years. Interesting side note; during the same festival weekend I got stuck in an elevator by myself with Kevin Saunderson on his way to spin his set at the main stage. I never would normally try to talk to someone "famous", but I had to introduce myself and Tell him how much he'd influenced me.

Download Blow:

Davina - Don't You Want It 1992

Continuing we've have something not from the city(D), but definitely influenced by it. Milton Jackson deserves respect for his 2002 Bionic Boy LP on Glasgow Underground which is filled with creatively filtered house grooves. The song "Sunlight" stays lower to the ground though, different from the rest of the album. This track really caught my ear as being exceptionally deep with it's sick strings. And what can I say I'm a sucker for a good strings arrangement. Check it out here:

Milton Jackson - Sunlight (album edit) 2002

Finally I conclude with the song that got me into the whole Detroit thing. Derrick May's Rhythim Is Rhythim - Beyond The Dance (Cult Mix) on Transmat is the track that made me realize their was better music than what I could find at Tower Records, and is what initially peeked my interest in this music. I heard this on a local radio station one night when I was like 14 and I still remember how it gave me goosebumps all over my body. Simply Beautiful.

Rhythim Is Rhythim - Beyond The Dances (Cult Mix) 1989

I was trying to get pics of the record labels, but I'm sick of fiddling with the retarded posting server so you get a picture of a giant baby eating a bowl of weed, it's the best I can do. Also I've decided on the last day of every month I will be doing a feature I'm calling FREEK CASSETTE. Since my musical taste expand way beyond just techno, I'll be posting one large compressed file that will be full of my favorite non-techno songs of the month. It'll be everything from indie rock to old school gabba, I promise to keep it interesting. Anyway enjoy today's tunes, tomorrow I'll be posting some harder techno stuff, including a set from detroit's godson of techno, DJ T-1000.
