Boomkat Product Review:
Original Detroit head Delano Smith provides an authentic flavour of the technohouse sound he helped to create with a wicked four track EP for Third ear, cutting way into the deeper 313 styles. 'Something For Myself' sets a soulful tone with cut up samples utilising the classic 'Detroit' intonation, but for once you know this guy actually lives there! 'Trans' is a bit of a special one, bringing a flavour of his Mixmode styles with a proper Detroit/Berlin friendly mover with well cushioned keys and reverberant chords that could easily be heard in a Dettmann set, and 'Cosmos revisited' sets off with a spacing tripper guided by techno soul synthlines and thick jacking rhythm. Any Omar-S, Patrice Scott or Anton Zap heads need to be peeping these, especially 'Trans'. Tip!
