hands down proper detroit gear, timeless classic material here, if that s what you re after - look no further! coming on strong way back in 87 on the legendary kms label when we used to play is 4 solid as cuts, stripped back box jams, sleazy vocals and samples and ultra-jacking rhythms! this one s for the heads and is the first of 2 baxter 12-s that mint condition will be presenting to you! trademark deep basslines and sultry atmospheres are what baxter does best and this is one of the first, and best, examples of his unique flavour of house and techno. there have been a few bootlegs of this classic ep floating around for a few years, but this pressing is the real deal, a solid collabo between mint condition and blake baxter. an essential cornerstone of one of the most important musical scenes in dance music indeed - every home should have one!
kht 008 is coming from no less than the man who is called * the prince of techno* by his peers. and that is for a reason: blake was part of the first wave of detroit techno artists and dis and contributed to the techno movement from the mid 80s. tracks like “when a dream becomes u” or “our love” are milestones of electronic music, his style, which he calls “poetry and rhythm” is distinctive. for killekill house trax he delivers the acid life ep which comes along with two strong, acid driven tracks, the a-side darker and more chicago-oriented with its rhythmical focus and the punchy kick, the b-side more detroit-ish with its uplifting chords. timeless!

as one of the first dutch musicians to establish a vital connection between detroit and amsterdam, orlando voorn has long been recognized as one of the netherland’s most original and inventive producers in the world of electronic dance music. voorn began djing at the tender age of 12 and went on to win the dutch dmc dj championships in 1986 with his own characteristic blend of hiphop and electro. towards the end of the eighties he acquired his first sequencer, packed away his turntables and turned his hand to producing.
