Boomkat Product Review:
A 100% seminal, pivotal EP for many reasons, DJ Rolando’s ‘Knights of the Jaguar EP’ is back in circulation for all self-respecting house and techno DJs, dancers and collectors
Infamously, DJ Rolando’s anthemic A-side of this EP was so popular and successful at the time, that UR, a fiercely independent grassroots label from inner city Detroit, had to fight a legal battle against mega-major label Sony doing their own pressing. We’re not sure if any small label would stand up to that kind of shit these days - more likely to join ‘em if they can’t beat ‘em - but the 12” remains a vital piece of independent music history for matter that at least. But then factor in one of the greatest, enduring techno evergreens of all time in ‘Jaguar’, and the quick running depth of ‘Ascesión’ and it’s a real essential.
