Detroit Techno & House 12s
The records listed here are from the early days of Detroit's techno and house scene (as it was then known). From the originators of techno like Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Carl Craig to the more house-sounding output of Kevin Saunderson.
While Chicago was jacking to the sounds of Ron Hardy at the Music Box many of the Detroit heads were in attendance. They also took influence from radio with mix tapes from Chicago's WBMX and Detroit's own radio legend The Electrifyin' Mojo who mixed up European electronic music like Kraftwerk and early eighties Italo dance records with P-Funk and soul. There was also the electro scene of the early eighties of which Juan Atkins was very much a part, recording some of the most advanced electro of the era under his Cybertron moniker. The new music that was created from these influences and the vibe of the harsh city of Detroit was named techno. The word techno has been bastardised and mis-used to describe some of the most formulaic and monotonous music ever heard but unlike much of what has been described as techno since, this music from the originators was raw, creative, experimental and even funky - in a machines-can-be-funky kinda way.
