funkadelic have created an enduring legacy, and the power of their impact is visceral in detroit. their records not only played with genre, but possessed a diabolical sense of humour that led to music domination by the late 70s with parliament, funkadelic, parlet, bootsyís rubber band and the brides of funkenstein all releasing albums the same year for two years in a row. the music itself is beyond stereotype, but equally huge is that they were a black band not allowing themselves to be limited by anyone elseís notions of who they could be, having a massive impact on the next generation of detroit music, detroit techno. but more than just techno, it is a freedom of thinking that extends beyond boxes, so we included all sorts of today s generation of detroit musicians and producers to show the wide range of music that was funkadelic and how these ideas are still contemporary, they endure and inspire.
on ep5, legendary german musician burnt friedman makes his dekmantel records debut with Ďmonsuní. the berlin based artist, who built a reputation for himself through his explorations into obscure, finely-tuned, experimental dub through his label nonplace, alongside his collaborative relationship with the late can drummer jaki liebezeit, is one of the crucial, sonic manipulators of our time. Ďmonsuní finds friedman crafting flowing, percussive, dub techno that is both esoteric, and progressive. befitting of a dekmantel release. alongside friedman sits legendary detroit act ectomorph, aka. bmg & erika, also making their dekmantel inauguration, with a record that surmisesí the groupís anologue, style of motor city beats

electronic music would never have become what it is today,if it wasnt for bob moog.his lifelong incestuous love affair with the synthesizer has influenced so many people around the world and inspired countless musicians in so many ways.it was therefore a natural choice to dedicate this tribute album to him.it also make sense make this cd a benefit for the dystopia project,which in many ways immortalizes robert moogs lifelong work and dreams.in 2005 he died in the age of 71.
