Product Description

Legendary Detroit electro institution, Direct Beat, rally their troops for a hefty double pack of heavyweight killers from the archive. The label was set up in 1995 by the brother Burden (aka Octave One) to release the music of inner city Detroit artists, the fiercely funky machine rhythms of influential figures like Mad Mike Banks, Tommy Hamilton, Will Smith and Keith Tucker aka Aux 88. With hindsight it's possible to trace the influence of the label upon a generation of artists and DJs from Autechre and Rob Hall to Ed Chamberlain and DMX Krew, plus thousands of ravers across the globe not willing to succumb to the plod of the mainstream. Seminal cuts like Aux 88's 'Electro/Techno' and Will Web's 'Mirrorshades' cruise next to later classic like Di'jital's '360 Degress' and Andre Brown's 'Killing Quazar'. Put yo' back in to it.
