The Chase (12")
Cat: M 014.
  1. The Chase (Juans version) (6:47)
  2. The Chase (smooth mix) (5:50)
  3. The Chase (Maydays version) (6:28)
  4. The Chase (Neutral version) (5:29)
Review: Originally released in 1989, "The Chase" has long been one of the most in-demand Motor City techno classics. This desirable reissue includes all four mixes from the original 12", beginning with Juan Atkins' superb take - a rich, tuneful treat that cleverly combines trademark Motor City percussion with a string of contrasting - but complimentary - melody lines. Derrick May's rework still sounds intoxicating and addictive, benefitting from the great man's decision to emphasize the original's spacey melodies and a tougher, more percussively intense groove. Also worth checking is The Smooth Mix, whose sparkling melodies and springy bass work help create a surprisingly Balearic mood.

  1. Out Of Phase (5:09)
  2. Going In Circles (5:48)
  3. Down The Lodge (5:15)
  4. Detroit City At Night (3:17)
Review: Terrence Dixon first donned the Population One alias for Metroplex two decades ago, and has been a semi-regular contributor to Juan Aktkins' label ever since. Detroit City At Night finds him in fine form, delivering tracks that blend traditional Motor City techno tropes - hissing hi-hats, spacey electronics, and futurist intent - with warmer keys and organ stabs. Naturally, it feels like a classic Metroplex release, with cuts such as "Going In Circles" - built around spacey melody patterns and swirling, sci-fi textures - and "Down The Lodge" ticking all the right boxes. Best of all, though, is closer "Detroit City At Night", an atmospheric combination of gritty Motor City field recordings and dark, Italo-influenced techno grooves.

  1. 5% Solution (6:12)
  2. Mindless Entertainment (4:41)
  3. Day Of Reckoning (7:15)
  4. My Name Is Binky (5:33)
Review: Techno reissues don't come much more essential than this. Of all the Detroit heroes, Anthony Shake Shakir is one of the wildest, with his iconic catalogue traditionally pushing into the red and drawing on a rugged set of influences. This comes across in abundance on "5% Solution", his second single which came out on Metroplex in 1993. The title track feeds off the rolling hardcore breaks that were blowing up in the UK as much as the Motor City methodology, and it sounds utterly magnificent. "Mindless Entertainment" whips up an oddball tuff-house brew that aligns with Sheffield bleeps n bass, "Day Of Reckoning" stutters and shakes with frantic energy and "My Name Is Binky" gets into a wonderfully crooked groove. Shake has a bite and verve to his style that just can't be beaten.
