Hijacked Records Detroit's latest release is a single from an amazing talent we found by way of some of his incredible live PA work. "Why Detroit," dubbed after the title track, marks a debut release for François V on the Hijacked imprint and we hope it's the first of many!
François' original track takes us back to the days of intelligent techno. His style is reminiscent of UR's Timeline and Los Hermanos with his own flavour mixed in. This arrangement is emotional and beautifully composed with complicated drum patterns and scintillating highs.
Supporting the title track we have Antwon Faulkner's "Rhythm is Rhythm remix." Antwon's version has moved away from that ethereal quality we heard in François' piece, taking the track to a dark and moody place. Antwon uses some of the key work from the original, but against the intense backdrop he's staged, it's almost as if he's telling a completely different story.
It's always interesting to hear what a couple of really talented artists will come up with when using similar elements. This is where we start to the see the personalities of the artist. Hijacked Records Detroit has a few more personalities we'll be introducing you to in the coming months so stay tuned. We are on a mission to bring you quality electronic music and we're excited to share what we found!
