VA - Detroit Beatdown Vol.2, EP 2

VA - Detroit Beatdown Vol.2, EP 2 (Third Ear) Comentários: It is four and a half years since Third Ear released Detroit Beatdown Volume One (3ECD/LP-001). The first of the three volumes of the Detroit Beatdown Third Ear project was completed with the cd release of the complete Detroit Beatdown Remixes in 2006 (3ECD-043). Volume Two will be spread across 5 eps (12" vinyl and DL releases) through 2007 and 2008. A 2xcd and limited vinyl box set will complete DB2 before getting into the remixes and Detroit Beatdown Sessions eps again. Check! A1: Kelli Hand ‘Escape In Detroit’ Kelli Hand is the first lady of Detroit electronic dance music, arguably the first lady of electronic dance music. A producer and DJ with a phenomenal track record, she once again delivers a storming dance floor track. Typical Kelli Hand quality production. Think Paperclip People. Yes, that good. A2: Pirahnahead feat. Yaminah Brock ‘I Do Love You’ Soulful House track with quality programming and musicianship from Pirahnahead. Pirahnahead is still relatively unknown, but already has a reputation. Last year, ISOUL8 and Innervisions asked Pirahnahead to remix ISOULl8’s ‘Give It Up’. Pirahnahead has also released on KDJ’s Mahohani imprint. B1: Drivetrain ‘Tre 2’ Drivetrain is Derrick Thompson, founder of Soiree International Records and producer of many top Detroit tracks. This is another deep grooving dance floor track in the same vibe as Smith & Halll’s ‘Theme’ on DB2/1 (3EEP-076). Is it House? Is it Techno? What does it matter? This is kicking electronic rhythm and soul. B2: Inohs Sivad feat. Diamondancer ‘Somewhere Else’. Like Black Art Music on DB2/1 Inohs Sivad is another talented newcomer from Detroit introduced through Third Ear’s Detroit Beatdown releases. She is an accomplished singer/songwriter and this is her first electronic dance music production. This is a hypnotic track reminiscent of early Claude Young or Shake Shakir productions. Classic early 90s Detroit Techno vibe with Diamondancer and Inohs Sivad giving a warm dreamy vocal over the top. This is a very original track and one we are sure will create a buzz. in rushhour
