Boomkat Product Review
*Upfront Exclusive* Ten of the mod forward thinking, devastating Detroit House cuts of the last few years are at long last available on digital formats - for the first time. Marcellus Pittman's Unirhythm label has been completely destroying us with a series of dope 12"s since 2006. 'Pieces' collects all four previously vinyl-only EP's on CD 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, Pittmann really is up there with the best, twisting the templates of reel raw machine music traditions with signature flair and groove. Quite honestly the collection contains some of the finest 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'. It's just so damn good - get yourself an education.
