A new entry to the Underground Resistance discography is a rare treat for dance music.
After blazing a trail of seminal techno and electro in the 90s and 2000s, the group lead by Mike Banks, has released nothing since 2010, although the UR label has been active as recently as 2016.
Now a new remix has surfaced from the collective. It's a re-rub of fellow Detroiters, Funkadelic's 'Music 4 My Mother.' And it's not as an unlikely pairing as it seems. Underground Resistance co-founder Mike Banks began his music career with a Motown project, and played guitar and toured in Parliament Funkadelic in the 80s, before co-founding UR with Jeff Mills in 1990.
The remix is part of a new compilation that drafts in a selection of Detroit artists to remix standout tracks from the Funkadelic back catalogue. Entitled 'Funkadelic Reworked by Detroiters,' the comp also features other Detroit legends such as Moodymann (under his Kenny Dixon Jr name), Marcellus Pittman, Anthony Shakir, Claude Young and more.
