The Motech label has been building a high reputation of late but it’s actually been three years since co-owner, Detroit’s DJ 3000 (Franki Juncaj) released a 12 inch of his own. Putting that to rights, he delivers Take Me Away, due for release in April and featuring a deadly remix by Truncate. The original version of Take Me Away is a deep and hypnotic builder with a relentless groove that stands astride Detroit Techno and tough House, a style that DJ 3000 has championed over the years. Truncate is the alias of Audio Injection (LA’s David Flores). His remix ups the tempo and adds an infectious vocal cut-up, turning Take Me Away into a raw, hard-hitting cut. The Truncate remix has already been picked up by Eats Everything for his new fabric mix, out soon, as well as receiving early support from Dave Clarke on his White Noise Radio show and Ben Sims on the October edition of Run It Red.
