Mike Huckaby, Marcellus Pittman, and Recloose Remix Motor City Drum Ensemble on Upcoming 12"; Preview It Now
- Words: James Eaton
It has been over six years since industrious German DJ/producer Danilo Plessow (a.k.a. Motor City Drum Ensemble) inaugurated his own MCDE label with the first Raw Cuts 12", featuring two gritty and soulful house tracks made with old-school samplers and drum machines. He went on to follow that record with two more editions in the series over the years, but is now ready to wrap up the Raw Cuts lineage with a handful of remixes from some of biggest names in house and techno. Raw Cuts Remixes is a three-track 12" on the way via Plessow's label, and will offer productions from Detroit icon Mike Huckaby, fellow Motor City veteran and 3 Chairs member Marcellus Pittman, and New Zealand-based Rush Hour staple Recloose, whose version of "Raw Cuts #5" has been floating around since the middle of last year. Before the highly anticipated record drops on May 7, previews of all three of its cuts can be streamed in the player below.
