Eschewing the usual hyperbole, the press release for this one keeps it very simple: “versatile EP containing 5 tracks of pure underground Detroit music”. Detroit always liked to keep it minimal, but ‘versatile’ doesn’t really do this justice. This is a hazy, soulful EP that just keeps bubbling under, as ready for a lazy Sunday morning as a packed-out dancefloor. It’s out on March 10th on Black Catalogue, courtesy of producer MD, of whom not much is known. There are some acid squelches on here that nod to the sound of UK rave, in fact the 4th track Soul Factory is strangely reminiscent of the Orb, whilst the final cut, Switch Hitter, goes all 70s blaxsploitation and stops the release from taking itself too seriously. But generally this is Detroit all over – unhurried, hypnotic and intricately layered. Standout track is the opener, About 43 Miles, which is the sound of sunlight nestling on your chest after a very long winter.
