Wow. I was winding down after a eventful and emotional weekend, having made a few mistakes and upset those close to me. My mind was all over the place. This song started playing and instantly washed away the angst, the self doubt, the ill feeling toward myself and filled me with hope, happiness and energy. It's a rare thing for a piece of music to be able to lift me in such a way, but this has done wonders for me in a time of need. What a masterpiece. Within 6 minutes I was back, with a completely new outlook on things. I've had it on repeat since this time yesterday and each time I feel a little more inspired. Thank you UR

I remember this vividly. An acquaintance of mine at high school sent a crappy rip of "Quetzal" via MSN Messenger one afternoon after school. It must have been 2002 or 2003, so right after it was released I guess. He told me to listen to it but electronic music was so alien to me at the time. I was into a lot of music, but electronic was not one of them. Some ten years later, with electronic music now my primary passion in life, I stumbled upon this 12". I listened to it, and it brought up a lot of memories from way back. Of course I recognised the track from back then, but it's only now that I can appreciate it's beauty and complexity. The drum programming is insane, and there is so much going on in a little over 6 minutes while maintaining such a bright, wide, open sound. Insane. It fits every kind of setting, and every kind of DJ set. Definitely one of Detroit's finest moments. So I guess next time I'll see that old friend I'll thank him.

This track reminds me of one thing in particular, Memorial Day weekend in Detroit where it's not too hot, not too cold. Nostalgia. Nighttime. An evening breeze in the air brought on from the Detroit River. The smell of the city and the life that it has to offer-even if it's only momentary, juxtaposed by the subtle lights from the Renaissance center. The happiness of being alive and having a car full of Detroit only records that I bought and soon will able to play when I get home, and relive my experiences here. A mild buzz from the local Detroit pints that I've ingested at Jacoby's while chilling with my wife, before we walk down to Hart Plaza to hear a DJ set. No worries in life, just pure magic. Unless you're from Detroit, or at least visited there during Memorial Day weekend, you'll never understand the feeling. I know they say that the last few seconds before you die, your life flashes before your eyes, for me, every time I hear this song, my whole life growing up in Michigan flashes in my mind. This track makes me glad to be alive and it keeps me young, even when times can be a little rough and not so forgiving.

For those that never heard of it: just listen to this! It's the closest you get to perfection!
For those in-the-know: for each of us there are plenty of emotions this track brings on, and they all talk diectly to the heart! Detroit rulz!

Can't agree more with mindblow_, saw Rolando play this in sunny Cardiff, lifted the whole place. I prefer this to Jaguar. A perfect piece of music.

'Quetzal' is one of the most beautiful Detroit techno songs I'm aware of. It's not really techno at all, it's house, but still just so beautiful. I love the stings, I love the beat programming, especially the cowbell, I love everything about it. Just a pure slice of heaven. Mellow, maybe a bit melancholic, but still full of hope, just a timeless piece of music. This is far better than 'Jaguar', this is… well, Detroit at its best. This one you must hear, words can not describe it, but after you have heard this you can not forget this. Truly unspoken classic among those who know.

Two absolutely killer slabs of quality uplifting techno from 'The Brothers' DJ Rolando and Gerald Mitchell. 'Quetzal' with its soaring strings and rising key changes is backed up by 'Tescat' a more rhythmic affair. You could describe this as tech-house but it just wouldn't be doing this record justice. Sheer class.

I love this... Quetzal is a true masterpiece that really reaches out to your soul. Think nights of the jaguar, only slightly less epic. Testcat is less brilliant but definitely not a bad track. I hope these guys have more releases planned for the future!
