Boomkat Product Review:
Ten of the most forward thinking Detroit House cuts of the last decade at long last available on digital formats - for the first time.
Marcellus Pittman's Unirhythm label has been doling out dope 12"s from Detroit since 2006. 'Pieces' collects all four previously vinyl-only tracks on digital formats for the first time, together with Pittman's remix of his T.O.M track with Theo Parrish and Omar-S, plus a Jamie 326 edit of 'There's Somebody Out There' from his now-legendary 'Midwest Advocates EP'.
As far as the new skool of Detroit producers goes, M. Pittmann is up there with the best, twisting the templates of reel raw machine music traditions with signature flair and groove. Some of the bits on this CD are finest bits of house to come from the 313 in the last half decade - we're talking about the mad triplet ting 'T.S.O.T', the optimised sci-fi jack romance of 'Loneliness Leave Me Alone' and the supremely deft weave of synth and drum machine in 'If The Earth Could Talk', or the soul-sensuous, fuzzy hypnotism of 'Come See'.
