Every track an absolute classic. Still holds strong today. Surpasses pretty much most of what tries to pass itself off as Detroit techno nowadays imo.

Back To FADE II BLACK! Jay DENHAM re-releases IN’SYNC EP.

Detroit techno pioneer Jay DENHAM is celebrating 25 years’ anniversary since the release of the epic In’Sync EP by Transmat sub-label Fragile under the moniker Fade II Black. This all-time classic is re-released by his label Black Nation Records along with the remix by the BN artists Billy Johnston and Gennaro Mastrantonio.

1990, Detroit. Decaying atmosphere of the collapsed industry, obscure deserted streets, and discarded buildings. Yet, we can still hear the echo of machinery of the abandoned auto plants. The city is looking for its new identity. Techno community welcomes its new members. Creativity is galvanizing. From the ruins of the white pride emerges a black power generator. White nights, ramen noodles diet, gospel voice of Tramaine Hawkins and the energy of the mutual inspiration – a struggling artist Jay Denham is about to sense the future. Derrick May recognizes the rising talent and invites him to join the launch of his label Fragile. It’s time for Fade II Black Advent.

Denham‘s futuristic vision and particular, ahead-of-its-time sound, gave the world In’Sync 12′, which also featured the tracks “Insistent Rhythm” and “The Calling”. “Revolution”, – predicts Anthony “Shake” Shakir. “Man, that’s scary!” – acclaim the Octave One brothers. The EP got in rotation on radio stations and instantly became a dancefloor hit at clubs.

In’Sync has been keeping up the rhythm of the future from thereon – tracks were sampled and played all over the world by dj’s and artists, such as Carl Cox, Keith Suckling and Daft Punk.

Today the timeless record is still avant-garde, considered the classic of the genre and will definitely stay inspirational for the future 25 years.

Inspired music from Jay Denham! "In Synch" is timeless. "The Calling (Reprise)" / "Insistent Rhythm" polish this EP off.

I tend to agree with fred funk, but do as I do, mix two copies back & forth while on the 3rd deck punch yer beats in.... works every time....

I'd say "The Calling (Reprise)" is a good 10 minutes too short. This is an absolutely magical tune - my only gripe is that it spends 3/4 minutes building up and when the bat finally comes in, it fades out after about 30 seconds.
The other mix of "The Calling" has to suffice, although it is not as good.
