The Motech label has been building a high reputation of late but it’s actually been three years since co-owner, Detroit’s DJ 3000 (Franki Juncaj) released a 12” of his own. Putting that to rights, he delivers ‘Take Me Away’, due for release in April and featuring a deadly remix by Truncate.
The original version of ‘Take Me Away’ is a deep and hypnotic builder with a relentless groove that stands astride Detroit Techno and tough House, a style that DJ 3000 has championed over the years.
Truncate is the alias of Audio Injection (LA’s David Flores). His remix ups the tempo and adds an infectious vocal cut-up, turning ‘Take Me Away’ into a raw, hard-hitting cut.
The Truncate remix has already been picked up by Eats Everything for his new fabric mix, out soon: https://www.fabriclondon.com/blog/view/newsflash-eats-everything-mixed-fabric-86 as well as receiving early support from Dave Clarke on his White Noise Radio show: http://www.rte.ie/2fm/white-noise/#2071645 and Ben Sims on the October edition of Run It Red: https://soundcloud.com/ben-sims/ben-sims-run-it-red-011-oct-2015-nts-radio
