Vince Watson announces ‘DnA’, an almost 20 track album project focusing purely on Detroit Techno and House and what might be his biggest and best album to date. Coming on his own Everysoul Audio label, Vince’s 12th album has been years in the making and see’s him go directly back to his Detroit roots. ‘DnA EP1’ is the first part, four tracks of sketchy hi tech soul, lushest pads and string sequences. Followed by ‘DnA EP2’ just before summer and another complete vinyl double pack later this year.
It was being requested to remake Rhythim Is Rhythim’s ‘Icon’ and ‘Kao-tic Harmony’ by Derrick May himself in 2015 that greatly inspired Vince to begin writing new original Detroit material and was the catalyst for ‘DnA’s inception. The album is a dedication and reflection of the three waves of Detroit Techno that inspired a generation and countless electronic producers around the globe. Watson wanted to honour this in the music as closely as possible. Hints of Derrick May, Carl Craig, Mad Mike, Juan Atkins, Kenny Larkin, Stacey Pullen and Dan Curtin can all be heard influencing across the album.
