Boomkat Product Review:
UR’s seminal and breathtaking Detroit techno masterpiece resurfaces for a 2019 reissue
First emerging in 1992 as the 20th UR release, ‘World 2 World’ is deeply cherished for a number of very good reasons. The first is ‘Amazon’, a golden example of Mad Mike’s rousing synth play at work over infectious breaks-driven techno rhythms - a proper end of night classic - while the other lies firmly with ‘Jupiter Jazz’, a stellar piece of hi-tek soul that is gospel to any self-respecting classic techno and house fiend. That’s not to discount the lush ‘Cosmic Traveller’ and the AGCG/808 State-echoing hustle of ‘Greater Than Yourself’, but that A-side is likely to carry all the workload.
