This has got to be the ultimate Detroit Techno label for me, Red Planets 1 to 9 are all classics that still sound amazing today. Uncompromising, experimental, progressive, funky, banging, contemplative, melancholy, joyful and uplifting, harsh and beautiful, the Red Planet series is all these things. Sounds like some brothers from Detroit and a bunch of Native Americans got together and decided they had enough of this world and went off to Mars to form a musical tribe that would beam back their creations to earth in the hopes of enlightening humanity and creating a better world than the one they left behind. I wonder if George Clinton and Sun Ra ever stopped by Mars and met these guys during their travels through space? Sure sounds like it!

My introduction to Detroit techno. The Martian is a handle for the well known Mad Mike Banks. But occasionally other famous Detroit musicians have recorded under the name.

The Red Planet is a mainstay in Detroit techno, shadowed only by Underground Resistance itself.
Music is taken to another level on the Red Planet label. It becomes a medium for a message, and enlightenment. It's as though every album is seemingly a classic, yet the producers take no real recognition for creating any of it. I would discourage anyone from buying these on discogs. Get it from submerge if you can.

This label truly summarises the detroit sound. Simple, yet at the same time complicated in it's sound architecture the releases are captivating.
My absolute favorites are "Sex in Zero Gravity" and "Sunchaser". Although the sound will definitely not excite your common club crowd. Instead, it will drive all true techno lovers to frenzy.
Keep it true.

Mike Banks has fiercely denied any involvement in the Red Planet label. The records are always credited to 'The Martian' and when complimented on a RP release Mike has always said 'thanks, ill tell the Martian'
