Detroit Techno

A great album from one-half of Drexciya, this sits comfortably between the Detroit and Dusseldorf sections of anyone's record crate. Few of the tracks ever resemble Drexciya's harsh, foreboding mixture of hypnotic pulses spewed from blown circuits. It's built instead on throbbing and quick bass beats of electro with smooth techno rhythms, hinging real-life body experience with futuristic man-machine interaction.

Alternative/Indie Rock

Arguably Ut's best, this double-EP is easily their most coherent record, tighter and more in control. The songs here sound as though more attention was paid to their construction and writing, making this is a more polished record in many ways. But not every edge is sanded smooth; there's plenty of bark and bite here.
