Boomkat Product Review:
The third CD from Detroit vendors Submerge this week comes from DJ 3000 and sticks to the ghetto side of things with plenty of Electrofunk action from Mr De and friends. As with the Electrofunk material you have to take it with a pinch of salt due to lyrics such as ‘Big Booty H**s and S**ts to’, it s a romp through the sexier side of Detroits underground with big beats, basslines and chicks to the fore. There are 10 unreleased tracks from the Motech, Electrofunk and Los Hermanos labels mixed into the cd, also a couple of classics sit in the wings including the vintage Orlando Voorn track ‘Flash’ by Fix which made its first appearance on the KMS label, and also the ace ‘Pow Wow’ track from the Martian and his Red Planet. All the cuts are mixed up with Native Instruments ace Traktor DJ software and helped along by Mr De and DJ 3000, and a fine example of the real Detroit Underground, ace.
