Underground Resistance reissues more classic 12″s

Legendary Detroit stable Underground Resistance has reissued three more of the most prized records in its back catalogue, with the latest batch including seminal deep house cut “Don’t You Want It”.

The ‘Mad’ Mike Banks produced Davina single was re-released this week – it first came out back in 1992 on Happy Records, a deep house focused sub-label of UR. It was then reissued on another UR affiliate Soul City in 1996, before finally being issued on Underground Resistance in 2002. It now stands as one of the most revered house releases to emerge from Detroit in the past two decades, with an undiminished appeal that sees original pressings still fetching tidy sums on Discogs, while UR acolyte Jackmaster included it on his 2011 Fabriclive 57 mix.

Also released this week was the noirish acid-tinged electro The Final Frontier EP, first released in 1991, and Inspiration, a loopy, jazzy house 12″ first released in 2002. The three releases follow the 2011 represses of Dark EnergyInterstellar Fugitives, Electronic Warfare, The Turning Point and the masterful Galaxy 2 Galaxy 12″ that featured perennial Juno Christmas party staple “High Tech Jazz”.

Don’t You Want It, The Final Frontier and Inspiration are out now via Underground Resistance.
