- The Turning Point by Underground Resistance
9/10 Andrew 23rd August 2014
Underground Resistance are legends in the Detroit techmo game. The mysterious (well not so much now, but I'm thinking of their pre internet period here) collective putting out material that stayed consistent and forged a path for countless imitators to come. Their often sparse minimal sound often underpinned by dark suggested narratives, quasi militaristic themes also apperaing. EP's like Acid Reign whilst deep and hypnotic hardly were not exactly your saturday night get down tune to forget about your 9-5 existence.
So what of this 12? Turning Point is as high quality techno as you'd expect, however what I'm loving is the track on the flip 'Soul Power'. Twisting James Brown into an hypnotic and damned funky techno treat this is UR gettin' down. Don't get me wrong, this isn't going to hit number one and be the next Doop (remember that?) But it hits like the kind of high end techno or deep house hybrid that Motor City Drum Ensemble has been putting out to great effect recently. You can imagine Laurent Garnier or local boy done extremely good Darius Syrossian turning a club upside down with this track.
