Being the founder of a genre has to be an incredible feeling. Instead of copying Chicago House, or New York Garage jams, Derrick May, along with Kevin Saunderson, and Juan Atkins created a fresh electronic music sound in Detroit. The sounds of early techno are incredibly interesting even to this day. Techno is an exploration of sound and form. It meanders around and displays different patterns and variations of timbre instead of opting for the standard song structure found in house music. As we all know, the British (thanks Black Shag) turned techno into a 160bpm shit sandwich in the 90's. The Germans and a few Americans have rescued and modernized it in the recent decade.
This cut came out on Derrick May's Transmat Records in 1987. It was his first production and my favorite. It was edited by Juan Atkins.
