Mixmode boss Delano Smith has been an integral part of Detroit’s musical landscape for nearly 30 years. Back in 2012, Smith released his debut album ‘An Odyssey’ for Yossi Amoyal’s Sushitech which was a fine representation of the Detroit-via-Chicago producer’s contribution to techno. His relationship with the imprint has only strengthened in the ensuing period, and it’s not surprising to see a second record, ‘Twilight’, now being released on the same label. The eleven-track album will please fans no end, mixing smooth, hypnotic deep house and snappy techno with just the right amount of basement soul and melodic complexity.
