Reese – Just Want Another Chance (1988)

June 18, 2017 Leave a comment

Timeless Detroit techno from one of the founding fathers, Kevin Saunderson; this time operating under his Reese moniker. Although he has also released great stuff as E-Dancer, he is probably most famous for his work with classic Detroit house/techno titans Inner City who he co-founded in 1988.

I stumbled upon this when walking 3 miles back to the pub where I left my car after a great meal last night. Had the iPod (oh, yes!) on random rotation and this came on and mesmerised me.

The bass is relentless, the percussion hardly exists, the synths drop in and out fitfully and Kevin mutters sweet nothings over the top. What’s not to like? A perfect record!

Here are the three versions from the 12″ single. All good, but the first is the killer!






Julian Jonah – Jealousy and Lies (1988)

While Marshall Jefferson, Larry Heard, Frankie Knuckles, Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May were inventing the genius of Chicago House and Detroit Techno, folk back in the UK were not just twiddling their thumbs.

Re-stumbled upon this in the car this lunchtime and can’t get it out of my head. A perfect record.
