  • No, not a protest against the tube.

    Just wondering how many other Detroit Techno nerds we have here.

    I may have to dust off the UR, planet e, Transmat, KDJ, Frictional, KMS, Metroplex etc for the next time people ask for a DJ at an LFGSS event if enough people respond.

  • ahem....and where's the Theo Parrish in that list?

  • Theo, Shake, Juan, Eddie Flashin, DBX, Kenny Larkin, Claude, The Burden Bros, so many essential players.

    Come on Techno Rebels.

  • i don't know anything about this detroit thing.

  • 430 west ftw.

  • Grandmaster Flash FTW

  • Funkmaster Flex - invadin' yo' thread Jiggy!

  • Yes, me.

  • DJ Jazzy Jeff FTW

  • I've been listening to a load of old house and techno recently, lots of UR (especially the Galaxy 2 Galaxy Stuff), Red Planet (did Mike Banks own up to being 'The Martian' in the end ?), Moodymann (Inspirations From A Small Black Church :wub:) and some Cajual and Relief stuff

  • I know Jeff Mills was not part of the first wave of techno music but his mixes from mid-80s Detroit radio are fantastic.

    Also

    Drexciya, Derrick May, Model 500, Claude Young, James Pennington, Aux 88, Plus 8 (Canadian) Djax up beats (Dutch).

    +1 to Transmat, Metroplex etc.

  • Jeff Mills was awesome as the Wizard, 2 copies of Prince Kiss is amazing. He did those mixes on reel to reel at slow speed and then sped them up for playback on the air so he could pull off more tricks and get more tracks into his showtime.

    Though for the 80's cut ups the USA kings had to be the Latin Rascals and we of course had the mighty Greg Wilson.

    I used to be a detroit completist up until the end of the 90's, so much good shit.

  • Moodymann (Inspirations From A Small Black Church

    That track has gone to every gig i dj'ed at since the day i bought it...people always ask what it is...:)

  • i got given it as a birthday present. totally unexpected gift from a friend's collection.
    "d, happy birthday!"

  • model 500 ,Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson, the holy trinity

  • Only techno I got close to came out of Scotland and featured heavily on old Rezerection tape packs. Then everything went gabba and I forgot it all

  • i got given it as a birthday present. totally unexpected gift from a friend's collection.
    "d, happy birthday!"

    I must have had it for about 14 yrs now and it still sounds fresh to me...:)

  • 14 years old ?! I feel old now

    Any Lost veterans here ? Used to go fairly regulary when it was at the Vox in Brixton.

  • First rule of music...'It's not how old it is...i't's how good it is'

  • Any Lost veterans here ?

    Yes, me.

  • You can't talk about Detroit after 8 hrs with no mention of Omar S??!

  • First rule of music...'It's not how old it is...i't's how good it is'

    +1

    Was sifting through records the other day to stick on eBay and all the old house stuff(late 80's early 90's) I would never sell - timeless and most of it still sounds fresh today whereas most of the stuff I'm selling is from 2001 to present

  • You can't talk about Detroit after 8 hrs with no mention of Omar S??!

    Or Reggie Dokes...or Marcellus Pittman...or Rick Wilhite...or...or... :)

  • ....or Chez Damier or Stacey Pullen or...or....:-)

  • or MK(house I know)
