MINT CONDITION

Dig in.... 7th Movement's 'Odyssey' is one of those mythical beasts, a record that transcended scenes and genres. 'Odyssey' obviously spoke to DJ's effortlessly as it's a track that continually shows up in the mixes and playlists of a whole host of different people, new and old, including - Derrick May, Masters At Work, Mike Huckaby, Doc Martin and more. It's a simple, yet devastating record, dubbed out Disco chopping Funk of the highest calibre! Built on a handful of carefully chosen (and well known!) samples and collaged in the most old-school way, it's a passionate hark back to the 70's and 80's mega-mix and edit techniques of yore with a healthy handful of swagger, dub and echo thrown in for good measure. 'Odyssey' still sounds amazing today, even after being out there for on the streets for over 20 years it still works, as appealing to the Disco crew as it is to the hardcore House heads. Originally released by the legendary Junior Boys Own crew on their highly coveted Jus Trax imprint this is some pure 1995 heat that will have heads rushing the booth asking for a track ID. Try it out. Also featured on this fine reissue is a 'lost' version, a previously unavailable mix / edit that flips the track into some pretty trippy territory, in fact, you may find that you might need x 2 copies of this monster so that you can blend them together in a truly old school manner, garage or block party style! Essential London business here from the heady, og days of 'Nu-Disco' & House. Snooze ye not! 'Odyssey' has been legitimately released with the full involvement of the rights holders for 2017 and remastered by London's Curve Pusher from the original DAT sources especially for this release. 100% legit, licensed and released. Dug, remastered, repackaged and brought to us by the caring folks at Mint Condition!

Detroit bred and Los Angeles based producer Kenny Larkin has long been a force to be reckoned with, both in the studio and in the DJ booth. Under his 'Dark Comedy' alias Larkin crafted some of the deepest and most soul-searching Detroit Techno sounds to grace human ears. 'Corbomite Manuever' was originally released in 1992 and is the complete epitome of a game changer, this was Techno at its most sensual, intelligent and human, the antithesis of a lot of what was masquerading as the real-deal at the time. These qualities are what have stood this record in it's evergreen good stead for all these years - decades, in fact. Truly genius music made by someone who lives and breathes Techno. A truly staggering collection of music that still dumbfounds today and inspires generations of producers and DJ's to this very day. The most essential of the essential, classic material from front to back.
Reissued for the first time across 2 x 12"s for pure sonic superiority.

Sil says: If you dig your techno drenched in Detroit sauce, this is for you. As good as it gets. a 1992 gem that was the precursor and inspiration for much techno released afterwards. Ahead of its time and definetely sounds as fresh as way back when. Reissue of the week for me.

Mint Condition turn their attention to Detroit bred / LA based producer Kenny Larken for the 21st edition of their beautifully done reissue series.

Larkin's music is always awash with human emotion, his machine tinged expressions hark back to the true sources of techno music where man always met machine and the soul was inherent. "Serena X" always sounded like it had been beamed back to us, even in 1992 when she first appeared, bolstered by a classic remix from fellow Detroit techno auteur Carl Craig that saw C2 firmly innerzoning and adding in some trademark stellar chopped-up breaks to the mix. Both of these now classic and monumental tracks are included here, on this reissue, backed by the towering melodic workout that is "Empirical Reality. These tracks all stand tall today, a testament to the forward thinking style of Mr. Larkin. Remastered from his own source materials and with his full involvement, Mint Condition are top dogs in this game and comes fully endorsed by us here at Picc HQ.
