Track of the day #46

Back in the days, some of the best Detroit techno used to come from the UK, or that’s what we liked to think anyways. The likes of Stasis, Nuron, Black Dog, B12, In Sync and many others were at least on par with the motor city producers. One of the key factors surely was an early exposure to those sounds thanks to forward thinking record shops and distributors. One of those shops was the Fat Cat one, which would grow into the major indie label that it now is, even when the shop’s been now defunct for years. In this shop used to work Lee Grainge, a DJ and former music distributor specialized in electronic dance music, an occasional music producer (Ephebe, Original Vintage and Eagles Prey). After a few early record venture, Lee paired with the elusive Hazel Bligh to produce a couple of brilliant EPs under the Human guise. Over 15 years later those records still hold magic and direction, forgotten lore that should find its way into most techno and music enthusiast’s worlds.
