Detroit Heat Alert! Motor City Drum Ensemble's Raw Cuts series is a modern classic (certified Lab bestsellers), and the record that kind of cemented his name in the pantheon of soulful, tasteful house producers. It's only right that some producers from the Motor City take a stab at remixing the tracks, and who better than the deep Detroit masters Mike Huckaby and Marcellus Pittman? Pittman adds some funky breaks and seriously grooving percussion on his remix to great effect, while Huckaby delves even deeper in the groove with squelchy bass hits topped off by his signature dubby synth stabs. Lastly, Detroit native Recloose closes out the EP with an uplifting remix of his own, making it 3 for 3 for the D. Recommended.
