rhythm

First off, you need to know this is some heavy duty underground German shit.  These guys are techno masters from the heyday who created a new style of techno based on Jamaican dub music. Lots of bass, lots of washed out synths, delays, echos that last forever, and a static nothingness that lets everything fall into place.

This tune if off their self-titled CD that came out in 2001. Take a listen, this is a 60 second clip of the start of the song, and the best part is at the 0:14 mark. Right there, the stage is set. Imagine sitting in a movie theatre waiting for the movie to start, or waiting for the subway to arrive, and you hear this. Don’t look up!

0013 Moodymann – TechnologyStoleMyVinyl @ 2:30

So now we have a Detroit category, which is gonna get filled up pretty quick I bet. Moodymann is a good first post for Detroit, as you’ll hear.

This is a killer track, the whole thing. For the first minute, it sounds like a jazz quartet jamming, that’s it, and then you hit the uptake. The best part though is at the 2:30 mark where Moodyman goes back and forth about 3 times: jazz break, hit you with the beat, drum break, the beat, drum break and the beat again.

The interplay here is tight. Jazz and Techno absolutely melded together. This is tha D baby!!!
