Two heavyweights of the Detroit underground come together on this kicking new EP from Puzzlebox. K-1 aka Keith Tucker brings his famously repetitive sounds and rugged electro-funk to ‘On My Computer’, which bumps irresistibly as smeared sci-fi chords set your sights on the future. Add in robotic vocals and supple bass and you have an instant classic. It’s then to the Eastside of the Motor City for DJ Maaco’s ‘The People’ which is just as funky but in totally different ways; his laid-back groove is embellished with lush synth sequences and late-night cool that is topped off by a more seductive male vocal. Two very different but equally brilliant tunes.
Detroit Electro masterclass from legendary Keith Tucker.
From virtual obscurity to the top of the game, Captain Mustache has seen a meteoric rise with a plethora of high profile releases and collaborations displaying his signature aesthetic. Ranging from electro to indie infused electro clash, his talent is varied and shines true with this brand new double pink vinyl 12″ LP on the American Science Cult imprint. With already stellar productions, some of electronic music’s heroes are featured as collaborators or vocalists including the legendary K-1 of AUX 88, Dave Clarke, dynArec, and Hiroki Esashika.
Keith Tucker and Gerald Donald of Dopplereffekt finally got together. The combination of these two musicians has created a bombardment of funk as only Keith Tucker and Dopplereffekt can bring. That unearthly eerie funk and strings from other worlds. That snappy intelligent funk that Detroit so heavily influenced and unleashed to the universe.
