Ypsilanti’s style bender begins 2018 by drawing upon local sounds, both new and old, for his latest Detroit-centric edition.
Class is in session! Professor Osborn is ready to deliver his fourth lesson on the subject of Detroit dance music. Here he covers tasty, lesser-known cuts from such legends as Derrick May and Model 500, alongside favorites by (relatively) newer stalwarts Omar-S and JTC. Osborn guides us through acidic techno from Underground Resistance, mysterious electro from a Drexciya off-shoot Elecktroids, wonderfully lumpy Detroit house by Instinct and even blink-and-you’ll-miss-it unreleased music. Pay close attention! There’s no test afterwards though, so enjoy this stress-free survey of Motor City sounds.
