Excellent work by those Detroit Headz. Track 2 Track is in my opinion one of KDJ's finest moment (like Transit). Rick Wilhite's awesome "Roots Of Detroit" samples the beginning of Pam Todd and Love Exchange - Let's Get Together and this to great effect!

This is the definitive Detroit house album. Theo's "When the Morning Comes" is one of his grittiest and most pounding releases. Kenny's "Track 2 Track" is another slow builder ala "Shades of Jae" that ends in dancefloor devastation. Rick's "War on Woodward" is one of his deepest moments. Every cut is a classic.

floppy pressing ala NSC on the cheap with tracks that to this day still get played, I just dropped Roots of Detroit in my sessions at Coobah (bar/restaurant in Chicago) and seemed to get the head nod thing going. So it's that kind of record. Classic detroit goes deep, devastating. All ways in the lo fi filter to the deep insanity. The hard tracky bugout spaz jams ala track to track and when the morning comes. play those just right in the mix and things will light up from the spine on up. Rain for Jimmy is nice, I always found it too long to play in the mix, but that's what is so fun about it too. Roots of Detroit is the jam. LATE night shuffler with what must be a Prince (erotic city) sample among others. And that Outer Drive track which is filtered out idiot funk of the highest order. A tool box record of the essential kind.
