Smoke Notes

Brilliant mix from Mexican-descended, Detroit-based producer and DJ, Rolando Neizer. Producer of such epic tracks over the last five years as "Knights of the Jaguar" as The Aztec Mystic and "Quetzal" as Los Hermanos (with co-producer, the also highly respected, Gerald Mitchell), Rolando has been cited by many as the focal point of the revival "proper" Detroit techno has been undergoing since the turn-of-the-century. The fact that he's released these tracks with "Mad" Mike Banks' ultra-credible Underground Resistance label, in conjunction with his and Mitchell's Los Hermanos label, hasn't hurt this perception one bit either. This mix itself is simply fantastic, providing real inspiration and hope for all those of who hoped for a turnaround after it appeared that techno had completely disappeared up its own butt during the second half the 1990s. The music bobs and weaves, rolling along at a punchy 135bpm with funky-ass basslines and pneumatic percussion - often in an electro vein - giving a solid basis for some delightful strings and harmonics of various kinds to hook you in, without having to resort to full-blown vocal hysterics, drum roll extremis or (god forbid) filters washing through the breakdowns. In fact, there's hardly any breakdowns here, and the only vocals are small snippits that act more like percussive elements than actual hooks. This is the real deal Detroit feel, nearly twenty years on from Cybertron's "Clear", after trainspotters nearly killed it for everyone in the mid-1990s and Derrick May's mouth has been firmly wired shut: this is an absolute inspiration. Essential for all lovers of fine dance music. Import title in stock now.
