Billy Johnston & Gennaro Mastrantonio round out 2012 — the 20th anniversary year of Black Nation — with “It’s Not My Blow” & “Sound” — moody, mutli-faceted techno tracks smoldering with six-alarm dance floor fire. Billy and Gennaro work is swiftly heating heads on dance floors from San Fran to Saigon, with original releases and remixes on SLEAZE(UK), BluFIN, Apparel, DEFECTED, & Octopus, to name a few. On smoke-and-mirrors duty for this EP, Black Nation agent provocateur “MEANSandENDS” delivers two klever interpretations, fresh off the oil-barrel blaze warming his bunker somewhere under the uncharted wilds of Bushwick, Brooklyn’s post-industrial-warehouse favela. Reaching back to bring you the future, Black Nation Records was founded by artist Jay Denham in 1992 after several original releases and remixes for seminal Detroit artists Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May. Originally distributed through Mike Banks’ (Underground Resistance) Submerge imprint, Black Nation continues its journey with new digital and limited vinyl releases from global artists carrying the mantle of the Detroit/Chicago sound.
