Still Music Curates New Detroit-Centric Compilation

Just off the release of its latest compilation of Chicago house tracks, Jerome Derradji's Still Music label has announced a new collection of contemporary Detroit techno, house, and soul. Back in 2005, Still Music first mined the peak era of Detroit music with its In the Dark: In the Soul of Detroit compilation, and with this new incarnation, the imprint hopes to show where Detroit stands today. A press release for the forthcoming In the Dark: Detroit is Back describes the 24-track offering as "a journey through Detroit's basement clubs, studios, and warehouses, an uncompromising view of one of the most progressive music cities in the world." With a tracklist consisting new music from prominent names such as Terrence Dixon, Marcellus Pittman, DJ 3000, and Rick Wilhite, among many others, In the Dark: Detroit is Back appears set to be a thorough exploration of a scene that seems to grow more elegant and forward-thinking with age. Still Music will release the compilation as a two-disc CD and triple-vinyl pacakge on October 29, but before then, its tracklist can be found below.
