MOTOR CITY DRUM ENSEMBLE


Motor City Drum Ensemble is neither an ensemble nor from Detroit - it is Danilo Plessow of Stuttgard, Germany's own "motor city." And there is something very Detroit (and American) about MCDE's take on house music, which first came to my attention in recent months through his single series, Raw Cuts. Loops of old soul songs drive these thumping tracks, making for old-school songs that sound just right on new-school dancefloors.



MCDE recently made a trip to NYC, with stops at the Yard for the Sunday Best party, and at Tim Sweeney's legendary Beats in Space radio show. Luckily, each appearance has been recorded for our downloading pleasure, and I recommend checking out both.
