'We Love Detroit' Compiled By Derrick May and Jimmy Edgar

Derrick May and Jimmy Edgar have put together a compilation called We Love Detroit, due for release in December on We Love Recordings.

May and Edgar represent two very different generations of Detroit electronic music. May became a key part of the movement's first wave in the '80s, helping to forge its steely sound both on his own and with Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson (the other two members of the so-called Belleville Three). Edgar didn't show up until nearly 20 years later, and when he did he broke with the tradition sounds of his predecessors, going instead for something more flamboyant and pop-influenced.

We Love Detroit shows where both artists are at now. May combines techno classics from John Beltran and Carl Craig with newer cuts from the likes of KiNK and Petar Dundov, while also nodding to new school Detroit producers like Kai Alce and Andres. Edgar's half is more contemporary, highlighting artists like fellow Hotflush artist Lando Kal and 100% Silk's Magic Tour. He pays homage to his hometown as well, with tracks from Magda, Kyle Hall and Kris Wadsworth.

CD1: Chosen by Derrick May
01. John Beltran – Synaptic Transmission
02. Yotam Avni – Pentimento
03. Petar Dundov – Distant Shores
04. KiNK – Hand Made (Dub mix)
05. Kai Alce – Power Thru Pt 3 (Mush’s Sax Dub)
06. Deep’A & Biri – Hova
07. Carl Craig – Sandstorms
08. Federico Grazzini – Nova
09. Benny Rodrigues – It’s A Spiritual Thing
10. Andres – New For U

CD2: Chosen by Jimmy Edgar
01. Jimmy Edgar – Let Yrself Be
02. Lando Kal – Clockin’
03. Jimmy Edgar – Semierotic
04. Magda – Late Night Woodward
05. Kyle Hall & Kero- Zug Island
06. Coyote Clean Up – Mount Babe Bricks
07. Noel Jackson – That You Love Me
08. Darling Farah – Body
09. Magic Touch feat. N Dawson – Niks Groove
10. Kris Wadsworth – Connection
11. Axiom Crux – When Summer Doesn’t Come

We Love Recordings will release We Love Detroit on December 3rd, 2012.

Beatport and Native Instruments have teamed up for a series of ADE events called Traktor Cookery School.

Marc ‘MK’ Kinchen shows FACT TV how to make an MK Dub (part 1)

Marc 'MK' Kinchen has been one of house music's most distinctive and celebrated remixers since the early 1990s.

A hero to generations of house and garage producers -- most notably Todd 'The God' Edwards, who's claimed in the past that without MK there'd be no Todd -- the way MK chops up vocals, syllable by syllable, to say entirely new things, has contributed to countless classics, and is a trick that's been used by everyone from Burial to Mount Kimbie since.

One of the modern producers most inspired by MK is Hot City's DJ Haus. The biggest Kinchen expert we know, we put Haus in the studio with MK last week, with two aims: to come out with an MK remix of Haus's 'Needing U', and to produce a video where MK shows FACT TV how he makes his remixes. For fans of Kinchen and garage, and budding producers in general, this should be an education and a half. Here's part one.

Four Creative Techniques For Using Traktor & Ableton Together (Video)

This article was sourced from:

The combination of Traktor and Ableton in a DJ setup is a toolkit that (for now) is unparalleled for performers looking for versatile software solutions. We’ve read plenty of tutorials on how to sync Traktor and Ableton, but where most of them stop at a simple how to, today’s video focuses on why. Learn how to use four solid techniques that combine the best of both worlds in the video inside, and download a free template to try it out yourself!


For simple reference, here are the four techniques we show off in today’s video:
Technique 1: Traktor plays a song while Ableton runs MIDI loops on a drum machine (which is manipulated live). In this example, Traktor audio is side-chaining to the drum machine, creating a tight mix.
Technique 2: Traktor provides a beat (this example is perfect for house) while Ableton runs a MIDI loop on a synthesizer (Operator is used in the video) that does live synthesis, side-chained to the Traktor beat.
Technique 3: Old school beat and scratching from Traktor, which does live side-chaining to the finger drumming in Ableton.
Technique 4: Straight-up scratch routine and finger drumming jam (no tracks, no loops, all live) while Traktor signal side-chains to the finger drumming.
