RR1110 | Motor City EP – An ode to Detroit techno

It wasn’t until we listened to Exploit’s “Offshoot” and “The Philter” that we realized that perhaps the Motorcity EP was an ode to Detroit, the city which is a worldwide inspiration to the techno scene as it is right now. Listening to both tracks is like traveling back into time to where it all started many years ago. The old school hi-hats, snares, drums and bass lines really get you in the mood, reminiscing tracks of Detroit pioneers like Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins and Derrick May.

Remember those analogue synthesizers and early drum machines like the Roland TR-909 which were ground breaking in the nineties. The mastermind behind the Motor City EP is the Ukrainian Exploit aka Alexey Gordiyenko. Later this year the “Motorcity Remix EP” will be released to get the buzz further, because we think Detroit just deserves a massive ode!

Alexey’s releases are supported by deejays like Carl Cox, Umek, Eddie Halliwell, Dave Clarke, Marco Bailey, Fergie, Pig & Dan, Ben Sims, Judge Jules, Joseph Capriati and Markantonio among others.

His first solo album called “12″ was released on the biggest Russian dance label “Radio Record” in 2008. It contained 12 tracks, each representing the techno interpretation of each month of the year. As a DJ, Alexey has played at numerous events all over Ukraine and abroad. Beside club venues he played live at big raves and festivals like KaZantip (RU/UA), Technosfera (RU/UA), Symbiosis(RU), To4ka (UA) and Techno.ua(UA).
