about

In what has been a year of global disruption on catastrophic scales, 2020 will be rightly remembered for many negatives. This year will also be marked as phase in time when many of us extensively self-reflected and evaluated our lives, morals, priorities and our goals. For some techno artists, and many cultural Industry players, the gift of time to dedicate to the art of creativity isn’t a reality when there are bills to pay. Therefore lockdown represented an opportunity for many creatives that hold down regular 9-5’s to reset and rediscover creative flow without the normal everyday external distractions. This is the case for Motech Records founder and Detroit techno veteran ‘DJ 3000’, who presents this smart collection of tracks on the new ‘Don’t Stop EP’, on Motech Records. 

This, ‘3000’s first autonomous release since ‘Outnumbered EP’ which dropped in the Autumn of 2019.The EP features three exclusive ‘quintessentially Detroit’ bangers and arguably some of ‘3000’s strongest creative output in recent years. ‘3000’ added, “the lockdown granted us all time we wouldn’t usually have, so it was good to be productive and put my new studio through it’s paces. After making a bunch of tracks these three, I feel resonate the most right now”. The opener and title track ‘Don’t Stop’ is minimal Detroit techno at its purest and finest. ‘DJ 3000’ hits the proverbial nail on the head with this techno delight, slamming kicks, interlaced with smooth vocal chops and e-piano/ organ stabs building a subtle, groove filled melodic contrast to the intense thumping kicks, a track that will slot into any techno DJ’s setlist. 

Track two, titled ‘Reckless’, utilises the synth chord sound synonymous with ‘DJ 3000’ in this high energy introduction to the EP. ‘Reckless’ production is sharp, and the kicks punch with venom and purpose. 
Last but certainly not least is the track titled ‘Undertow’. ‘3000’ flexes his underrated and under the radar versatility in creativity. ‘Undertow’ is all about the raw popping analogue excitement generated by the Roland 909’s, set against a baseline that compliments the 909’s as well as providing plenty of groove. With new music like this, 2020 may not turn out to be as disappointing as it’s promised after all.

‘Don’t Stop EP’ [MT137] by DJ 3000 is available on Motech Records via all digital and streaming platforms from September 25 2020.
