The Mojuba sublabel a.r.t.less is very proud to present a retrospective by Detroit Techno veteran Martin Bonds aka Reel By Real. This release features the most seminal output by Martin Bonds who truly is one the most underrated Techno artists from Detroit and often remains not credited when it comes to the history of Detroit Techno, although he has been an inherent part of it since the early years! Maybe some of you remember the classic Marty Hardy mixes on KMS - yeah, that’s him too! Each and every of the six tracks is an undeniable timeless classic, which embodies the true soul and spirit of Detroit as well as the youthful enthusiasm and power from the pioneering years of Techno. Some of the tracks are now seeing a proper release for the first time, due to the fact that they had been only released as a limited whitelabel on Juan Atkins Metroplex sublabel Interface Records in 1990 and 1991. So it is no wonder that the original Surkit 12″ is one of the most sought after Detroit Techno records. Not to forget to mention that the retrospective also features a very rare collaboration with legendary Anthony Shake Shakir called Serene! To remain true to Detroit artists, the artwork for this project was created by the one and only Abdul Haqq from Third Earth Visual Arts who is giving Detroit Techno (e.g. Underground Resistance, Transmat, Red Planet etc.) a unique look since the late 80s. To get the most out of these classics all tracks were restored by Don Williams and remastered by Redshape! We hope you enjoy this classic music as much as we do, because this is the real thing and this is just the reintroduction of Reel By Real for some new action in 2011!
