There are not many producers around that put so much energy to the music like Mike Dearborn did. The 90ies would have not been the same without him. Many classics on Djax-up-Beats which are still worth collecting. Thumbs up!

I had the pleasure of seeing Mike Dearborn's live dj set and it was without a doubt one of the top of the top techno sets I ever heard. He can take what is seemingly "dry techno" and blend it with a soul that would make Motown jump up and boogie.

Mike is one of my all time favorite Chicago producer, the heir of Armando and Mike Dunn.
I like the beginnings with George Perry and of course the Djax-Up-Beats era.
Something seems to have changed in his sound since 1996, the sound is less swinging and dark.
Anyway, Mike has a unique sound, a unique way of making drum patterns with his analogical machines.
He's the king of groovy shuffling 909 snare drums.
I remember a time of genius tracks, just made with a fist full of machines, sometimes industrial, acid and hard, sometimes minimal moody and mental but allways groovy.
If i want to unwind i put the needle on the "Razorsharp", "Moments" and "Jaws" ep's. Mike can be considered a major figure of the Chicagoan scene, without a doubt.

Mike makes classic dry Techno. I specially like the releases on DJAX UP BEATS. He is not using the 303 sheme, but the 808-909 Drums are always there. The syth themes are simple and rockin... So he is musically one of the bests on DJAX UP. I think his own label wasent a success, so he should go back to miss DJAX.
