Derrick May Live @ Music Institute, Detroit – 1988

02.12.11

Detroit techno doesn’t get more purer than this mix – a satisfyingly warped-by-time a 70 minute set by Derrick May, in The Music Institute, the club he owned with Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson, recorded in spring 1988.

The thing that always grabs me about hearing 80s techno / house mixes from their hometowns, whether live Ron Hardy mixes, Farley Jackmaster Funk radio rips, or this is the sheer, vital rudeness of the mixing – three versions of the same track? Every song an absolute barn-stormer? Would you get away with that now? Anyway, click play and drift back, with full thanks to exemplary Soundclouder, R_co.
