Editorial Reviews

Danilo was always incredibly young with things. He started producing at the age of
Eleven -"way too early" as he jokes-having his first release out just five years later:
Inverse Cinematics' "Slow Swing", released on Pulver Records in 2002, and ended up finding its way into Ricardo Villalobos' record bag as well as onto one of the first Fabric mix CDs. An album under the same name and a string of EPs followed. Danilo's latest releases, the Motor City Drum Ensemble's Raw Cuts series in 2010, had the house music world responding strongly to the charmingly fresh and dirty sounding tracks, all mixed down in spontaneous two-hour sessions. Danilo has also released on top labels ranging from 20:20 Vision to Rush Hour as well as his own MCDE and Four Roses imprints, produced for Ben Westbeech and Rainer Truby and never ceased to amaze with his challenging remix work for artists like Caribou, Jazzanova, DJ Sprinkles and Zero 7.
His understanding of how the parts of a track can work has never been more apparent than on his OJ-Kicks mix. In 10 years, playing 80+ gigs a year, including such temples as
Berghain, Fabric London, Rex and MOS, he's absorbed dance history through hard and disciplined work behind the decks. Look at the opening selections of his OJ-Kicks mix to get a glimpse of his amazing ability to fuse totally disparate sound aesthetics into a coherent whole. With the next months holding an extensive tour schedule for Danilo, dancers around the world will be able to experience his gift as a selector first hand. That is, before he gets back into the studio to start working on his first album as Motor City Drum Ensemble as well as a live act. All this will prove, just as his DJ-Kicks is doing now, that there is no such thing as stagnation in the ever-evolving cosmos of Danilo Plessow!

I never review albums, as I am usually the one who reads those submitted by others. But, I am surprised this album has not received any reviews, so I feel obliged to write one. I downloaded this album two weeks ago and have played it daily ever since. The tracks are amazing, the mixing of them are seamless and smooth. I had high expectations following the DJ Kicks release featuring Apparat, which is equally fantastic. Motor City Drum Ensemble's release feels simple, combining all the elements I love - down beats, electronic, soul, and jazz. It really is the perfect balance of a more contemporary and rich acid jazz. I had not heard of MCDE prior to this download, but I will certainly follow future releases based on my experience with this album.

The first half of this mix is an excellent eclectic/bombs/bass-y/house banger...... then it get's bitten by the techno-bug and falls into a deep sleeping repetitive bore.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
