‘DAT Rips Vol. 1’

Sonic Mind Records
Donnell Knox has made a career out of of his hybrid Chicago/Detroit sound (derived from growing up in Kalamazoo, a city halfway between the two electronic music hubs), and this latest EP shows just what a lethal concoction it can be. All unreleased tracks he found on DAT tapes, the tracks have a raw energy only found on these kind of rough-hewn, limited-tech productions. Booming kick drums and psychedelic acid mean each slaps harder than most new productions could ever dream of.
