100 LIMOUSINES

9 track album and inaugural release from Detroit label 100 Limousines. A fixture in the Detroit DJ world, Todd Modes has spent the last decade quietly releasing music on Fit Sound, Golf Channel, M1 Sessions, Still Music, and Fat Finger Cosmic, amongst other labels. Inspired by the birth of his first son and the death of his grandfather, "New life" is a deeply personal meditation on the cycles of life and time. An examination of the past and present assembled from recordings spanning the last 20+ years, this LP is an outstanding representation of his musical depth and artistic purpose. A prime example of the quality to be expected from this new imprint, "New Life" is a true fusion of music and spiritual vision.

A decidedly new identity is now emerging from the Motor City. There's a tasteful gentrification happening which is seeing new, young artists move to the city enticed by cheap rents and large spaces. With them they're bringing new influences and sounds which are sympathetic to, rather than conflicting with Detroit's already impressive musical legacy. It's nice to see this innovative city move it along and push things forward.

"New Life" will appeal to lovers of acid jazz, Detroit beatdown and hippie rock! Recommended.

For it’s second offering, Detroit oddity 100 Limousines presents a monstrous 9 track debut from enigmatic recording entity, K-6000. From the first to last thud, "Bloodsport" is a sample soaked miasma of sonic mutations that moves the listener from head shaking bewilderment to head nods of agreement at a moment’s notice. Not much is known about K-6000. Based on this initial offering it is evident that the orbit of this group is broad.

Fierce, uncompromsing and adventerous - it nestles nicely into the Detroit music cannon whilst quietly ushering a whole new era of Motor City music (see also: Todd Modes and Kemetrix). Who said gentrification was a bad thing?! Will appeal to lovers of Dickie Goodman, Tricky, Patty Waters and Designer Drugs.

A1: There Is No Love Lost
A2: Get It How You Live
A3: Interior Equinox
A4: Yah Is Again Genesis
B1: Kundalini Set
B2: Rogue Wave Generator
B3: Veiled Threats
B4: She Gone
B5: Where We Are From

For 100 LIMOUSINES’ third release, mad genius Kemetrix unleashes 8 tracks of scuzzy, raw, underground Detroit street music. A paranoid, industrial soundscape gazing well into the future whilst the present crumbles around it, it veers around some of the strung out minimal wave the recent "Cold Wave" compilations, tips it's beanie to the stoned futurists at XPQ? whilst hatching a whole new plan for sonic takeover with label mate Todd Modes and new school Detroiter Aaron Seigel. 

Pure dystopia, introducing textures and rhythms deemed unpleasant for instagram living; this real aural phlegm and catarrh from deep within the bowels of a decayed city will shoulder barge any thoughts of sonic gentrifcation back wence they came. Strictly for the headstrong and futureproof.  

"Here and Now" will also appeal to lovers of Onyx, Cybotron, Wu-tang, and the SP-1200.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Crazy good new noise from the streets of the Motor City. Jeff and Derrick are grandads now, and there's some new yoof on the block making a serious racket! Inventive and uncompromising - the Detroit blueprint - refreshed for our crumbling humanity and the antagonist of polished, insta-filtered reality. You need this!
