Subradeon: Our 5 Detroit Influences

Subradeon return to their self-titled imprint, Subradeon Records with three uplifting cuts entitled Sounds Of Our Mothers’ Mothers including a remix from Exploration boss Johannes Volk.

Italian born, now Berlin-based duo, Subradeon have been building a reputation for themselves honouring a techno sound that combines the soul of Motown with elements of hip hop, jazz, and funk. After releases on Rekids and Motech Records, the duo maintains their vibrant productions with the second release on Subradeon Records. Germany’s Johannes Volk who is known for his releases Sistrum, Axis and his Exploration imprint jumps on remix duties following his recent release on Cocoon Recordings.

Not only did we get the opportunity of premiering a track from Subreadeon’s latest EP, which you can stream below, but we asked the Italian duo to share 5 Detroit Techno tracks that have influenced their love for techno, and their sound.

Enjoy their choices below!

Robert Hood – Who Taught You Math

First time we heard this track, was like… this is the best definition of Techno. You know who taught us math.

Rhythim is Rhythim – Strings Of Life

This song is the soundtrack of our Life, was there before we were born and will be there forever…

Kenny Larkin – You Are (Dark Mix)

We bought this record at HardWax in Berlin around 2013 and it has never left our record bag. It’s something spiritual.

“You are your own motivation. You are the designer of your destiny, you write the story.”

Scan 7 – The Resistance

“If you can hear this, you are part of the Resistance”

Coon Daddy & DJ Godfather – One Time On The MIC

You may know this song as one of the most famous samples in Techno. We love it in all his form.

“Everybody’s just ride”
