Compiled & mixed by Mike G at Rubycon Sound, April-May 2016
From uptempo to no tempo, this mix brings you the atmospheric, lush and more ambient end of the Detroit techno sound.
Detroit Melodik is my very personal selection of Detroit and Detroit-influenced electronica from the early 90's to 2016. Finding tracks for the mix was the easy part; deciding what to leave out was hell. Expect a Volume 2 in the future.
Iconic names from the motor city's early techno scene like Carl Craig, Richie Hawtin and Derrick May's Transmat label are mixed up with exquisite ambient techno from the Detroit Escalator Co and lesser known names like Ireland's Derek Carr and L.A. artist Laurel.
The soulful sound of the future, Detroit style.
