Just picked this up... Juan Atkins, AKA Cybotron/ Model 500/ Infiniti, hand picked this selection of his classic tracks released on his imprint "Metroplex" over the past 20 years...what is to be said? This is classic electronic funk. You gots to get this. I am still waiting for a comprehensive dvd documenting the Detroit artists that gave birth to Techno. May not have very long to wait... I am on the lookout for High Tech Soul (glustudios.com). Hopefully this will set the record straight!
Raph Rashid's "Behind the Beat", a great collection of photos taken inside the hideaways of some of today's top beat makers and producers, is a must have.
The Hep Cat Radio Show... the best in jazz, broken beat, and deep house in downloadable mp3 format. For an idea of what to expect, Check the a recent playlist below...HOT TAMALES!!!
