Detroit’s DJ 3000 celebrates Motech Records’ 15th Anniversary

Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Motech Records, Detroit’s DJ 3000 curation has followed a simple ideology from its inception: sourcing quality cuts from hard working artists. This mantra stems from label head DJ 3000’s own outlook from day one, which has fostered some incredible relationships over the years - the result is the ‘Union EP’.

With this in mind, the EP opens with a track from the man himself. DJ 3000’s upbeat stomper ‘Don’t Go’ is an unadulterated funk-filled, tough-House-meets-Detroit-Techno excursion that’s ready for serious dancefloor impact.

On the soulful side Detroit young-blood, Mazepa answers DJ 3000’s funky contribution with his own ‘Cass Corridor,’ evoking the expressive vibes of some of Detroit’s classic Techno with strings aplenty on this high octane track.

Next up, Pittsburgh Track Authority’s Preslav Lefterov delivers his first track as Preslav, a moniker he’s reserving for harder-hitting Techno as opposed to the Housier sound of PTA. His stripped down ‘Driver,’ is hypnotic with its less is more vibe.

Closing the EP, long-time label cohort Esteban Adame, who cut his chops with DJ 3000 at Submerge / Underground Resistance, brings us something different still. His track ‘Political Gain’ goes on a no nonsense lo-fi trip to great effect.
