DET90 aka Michael Galetto is a musician from Luxembourg, also known by the alias [vwaz] or beatmaker in electronic band SYNTHESIS. He claims to be majorly influenced by Detroit techno, '90s Chicago house and acid from Belgium and The Netherlands. The brilliant Transit EP starts out with the evocative title track; its epic strings, immaculate rhythm programming and deep elements all quite reminiscent of Landcrusing era Carl Craig. "The Room" however is more upfront and grooving with its raw 808 rhythms and backed by gritty monosynth melodies plus yet more emotive strings. Finally on the flip we've got "A.W.E." a sublime serving of Chi-town electronic blues; done the proper and original way like early Larry Heard, complete with sweet pan pipe presents for added authenticity. Tip!
