Mission de Control: Aux Mind

Spoiler alert: this is by no means a full-on Detroit techno mix. Instead, think of this as more of an appreciation mix. I love the sounds, that nasty, in-your-face funk 🙂

 

It begins and ends with Detroit techno elements. In the middle, it’s pretty modern techno and drum tracks. I think it starts around 130 bpm and goes up slightly… but can’t remember exactly.

 

My favorite track would probably be “Work That Mutha Fucker.” It’s just drums and a sample. Found this out on the discogs page, so you know it’s absolutely true;

 

Work That Mutha Fucker was made using just a Casio RZ-1 drum machine!
As well as providing all the drum sounds on the track it had a little sampler
built in with only a 1.6s memory. Just enough time to say…

 

Other tracks I think you must listen to are “The Detroit Break” and “C Plane (Danny Daze Remix)” and also the rest of them <3333
