Abbey Road Studios
Landed Records welcome one of the originators and true players of the Detroit House music scene, Dwayne Jensen. To their ever growing stable.
Known as 'The Born Entertainer', Dwayne Jensen is one of the key artists who helped to shape the Detroit House sound and the new evolution of music we now call Techno.
A self-taught DJ, musician, producer and writer, the Detroit-born native started off as a Jazz drummer & percussionist before gaining respect worldwide as one of the true Detroit superstars.
We are also delighted that Geoff Pesche from Abbey Road Studios is back on the mastering and has worked his alchemy on the release.
A1: Ignition - Original Mix: Dwayne starts this timeless EP with a powerful and switched-on Deep Detroit number, rich with filtered pads and trademark drum sounds straight out of the 909. A solid piece of modern House, this relentless, driving classic takes no prisoners.
B1: Deep Dive Dub - Original Mix: Dwayne really shows us what underground House music is all about with this moody, stirring number. Jazzy keys and funky bassline conspire with raw and tight percussion to produce a track which is off the fathom charts. A personal favourite of Mr Jensen's, this is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser guaranteed to warm up any dance floor.
B2: My People - Disco Nights Mix: Finishing the EP off with a bang, we are over-the-moon to be re-releasing the all-time classic, 'My People'. Originally released five years ago on a 12" compilation album, which only ever made a small run, it's high time this track was given a full release.Fun, infectious and uplifting, if this isn't the track to get a party started, I don't know what is.
DJ support already from - Kerri Chandler, Norm Talley, Anthony 'Shake' Shakir, Raresh, DJ Sneak,
Anton Zap, Baaz, Gerd, Brothers' Vibe, Jimpster and Cottom. To name a few.
This solid EP mixes a delicious slice of past and present, and is a rare record not to be missed.
Play it loud!
