Delano Smith's (Mixmode Recordings) debut album for Sushitech!
Born in Chicago and raised in Detroit, Delano's career started in the late 70's DJ'ing together with the godfather of Detroit House, Ken Collier. Delano was one of Kens "students" and during the 80’s started to spin a mixture of Disco and Funk. It was during those years that like all legendary DJs he started to develop his own sound to what we know today as “House” music and then later on, Techno.
During the early years Delano would get to play records in front of now legendary DJ’s such as Derrick May and Jeff Mills. Then, around 10 years ago, Delano decided to take all of his DJ experience and bring it to the studio. Shortly afterwards he started his own label called Mixmode and started to release records
A few years ago Delano joined forces and formed a deep relationship with Sushitech. The first release on the label and a now very sought after limited release, was with long-term Detroit buddy Norm Talley. As well a string of releases and playing at all the main label parties, Delano has cemented himself as one of the leading artists on the label. It was then only natural that he should want to release his first album on the same label that he has become such a big part of.
The album sound is deep, lush and dry just as you would expect from a true Detroit legend. Moving all the way from Deep House to Techno, Delano and Sushitech have collected his best works during the last 2 years and compiled an album of new tracks and unreleased rare mixes that should be a welcome addition to any collector or DJ.
