Icon

This is some re-worked Detroit techno for you on this Wednesday in May in lockdown. Around 2015 Vince Watson was invited to re- work Derrick May’s Icon, a Rhythim Is Rhythim  track from 1996. It came out in 2017 backed with another re-working on the B-side, an updated version of Derrick’s co- write with Carl Craig, Kao- Tic Harmony. Vince treats both tracks respectfully, rebuilding them without taking away the original feeling or energy. Some added drums, some strings maybe. Retro Techno/Detroit Definitive- Emotions Electric was the title of a 1991 compilation of the early Detroit techno and it fits this just as well. Dance music for the heart and the head as well as the feet.
