As the Motech label moves into a new decade, DJ 3000 and friends – in this case, Dapayk Solo, Mr O and T. Linder – unite to present this varied EP featuring four exclusive and previously unreleased tracks.
Berlin’s Niklas Worgt kicks things off with the deep and sexy ‘Here I Am’ under his Dapayk Solo pseudonym, which has seen him release on the likes of Mo's Ferry Prod, Karloff, Textone, Contexterrior and Trapez amongst others.
Mr O from Detroit Grand Pubahs has been weighing in with more solo releases in recent months like ‘Mysterious Sights’ (Deteledub) and the soon to be released ‘I Just Want Normal’ (Engineroom). Here he heads straight to the dancefloor for a serious techno workout on ‘Stromboli Revisited’.
Motech’s own king of the groove, Franki Juncaj revisits his DJ 3000 moniker for ‘La Samba Albanéz’ where his various influences as a Detroiter with Eastern European ancestry combine together with a heavy dose of spicy Latin beats and samba keys for this party-starter.
Finally, fellow motor city native and Detroit Techno Militia co-founder, T. Linder gives us the jacking, looped-up ‘Broken Border’. Having DJed for a number of years, it was only in 2007 that he released his first EP but he has since gone on to remix Detroit techno legends like Scan 7 and K. Hand.
With ‘DJ 3000 & Friends’, Motech continue to push its global collaborations, releasing music without boundaries or borders, for the world’s dancefloors.

TIMELINE MUSIC (BLOG - UK / BRAZIL)
This is a funky little EP! ‘Here I Am’ leans on the soulful side, ‘Stromboli Revisited’ has some nice percussive touches, ‘La Samba Albanez’ is undeniably funky and ‘Broken Border’ reminds me of old school UK techno just as it was turning hardcore.
