    Being a proud native of Detroit now living abroad, I nonetheless approached this collection with some trepidation. Would it be more of the often cold pulses from outer space and dancefloor mashes that we've come to expect? Certainly not. It shows that although not wildly innovative, these Detroit DJ's and producers have created a soulful urban vibe that still keeps with the signature Detroit feel. Brooding, but lovely and fulfilling. Norm Tally will certainly be one to watch as his bootleg productions begin to make the rounds...

      "It was Eddie Folkes whom I first heard use the word Beatdown after I had raved about Norm Talley's tracks. To me it was Techno, but it was slower than any Techno I'd heard. It was just deep music and Eddie called it Beatdown. When I asked him for description of Beatdown, he just replied, 'Beat-down, down tempo'.
      So what IS Beatdown? In my view, it is simply Detroit electronic music at a mid-tempo. Listen to Detroit Beatdown Vol. 1 and make up your own mind..."
