LUSINE – TWILIGHT EP

11 07 2010

Jeff McIlwain from Seattle has been in the electronic scene for some time now having recorded output on multiple labels such as Hymen, U-Cover, Mute, !K7, Kompakt, Asthmatic Kitty, and Shitkatapult. He has been recording under the guise Lusine for Ghostly International since his 2004 release Serial Hodgepodge. Recently he released a phenomenal album titled A CERTAIN DISTANCE with the first single, TWO DOTS that Joseph posted earlier on in the year. I also was him lucky to hear him drop it @ the BEATPORT Stage last year at the MOVEMENT festival in Detroit after Kate Simko‘s un believable set of minimal/click techno.

Well, it’s time for more from this producer and this one is as diverse as ever!
You can be sure that many other producers will want their paws on his output
in the years to come. I would watch this guy for more great material if I were you.

THE NEW DANCE SOUND OF DETROIT

23 06 2010

I have been reading this book [Techno Rebels by Dan Sicko] on techno and the Detroit culture and subculture scene. There were a number of seminal techno tracks by some of the greatest minds pushing an otherworldy sound that they were completely convinced would change music history. Well, I hope they were right. Wait, I know they were.

Recently, Joseph and I were very privileged to attend the 10th year of the music festival in the big D, known as D.E.M.F. to some, MOVEMENT to others. As he posted earlier, this was a milestone in both of our lives, musically and culturally. I could post a track by each person, group or DJ that blew us both away but I wanted to show how far we’ve come since this definitive compilation that ‘started it all’ came out by a group of souls from Detroit.
