For many techno and electro listeners, producers, DJs and label owners Detroit is a special place; that infectious sound, distinctive underground attitude and seemingly endless line of innovative producers it has generated.
W1b0 is no exception in this, his visit to Detroit fueled his creative fire. This release is the smoke this fire created....dance floor friendly but still with depth, fast but still graceful and infectious strong grooves await in 'Sleek' and 'Spatial Perception' whilst 'Track For My Father' speaks for itself; the audio product of another significant event in w1b0's life.
On remix duty, two very different artists approach Sleek from two angles. Firstly, Detroit's adopted son Romanian Andrew Red Hand strips it back and adds a big room vibe to the track whilst UK techno/electro artist and DJ Darkmode delivers a quality soulful techno rendition.
All combined and you'll find yourself shaking from the bass, imagining yourself At The Corner of Gratiot And Riopelle in Detroit with goosebumps and feeling, for a few minutes at least, like you've made a connection...

The description says it all. A brilliant fusion of industrial, techno and electro that's thrilling in its intensity yet ominously dark. Extremely competent programming. I love it! As for favourite track... That would be difficult. I enjoyed listening to the LP as a whole. I hope you do too! Kia van Farnhill
