John Joseph is the founder and purveyor of the PITS label from Detroit, Michigan. His latest EP, Get Vicious, is an exploration of genres in electronic music ranging from acid, to techno, to electro. Over the past two years, he has soaked up a massive amount of material coming from within the city and it has translated into a diversity of releases. These four tracks are focused on the dance floor, as well as sharing a snapshot in time. During a period of great change for Detroit, it is this music that has been consistent in bringing people together. And here, John captures the feeling of moving your body and being ‘vicious’ in expressing yourself. It is an invitation to let go of outer judgements, and truly be free.

Solution 99, aka Robbie Brandon, had his debut release February 2018 with Kondukter Records, and has also had a recent release on Chill Records in May. With a wide range of inspiration from Disco, to Lo-Fi House, to Detroit Techno, his Horizon EP looks to expand, evolve, and push his sound while also preserving some true nostalgic feelings. It is about raw emotion and seeing the beauty in creating.
“Emerald” and “I Need You” and are both songs inspired by where he comes from and the connection with his personal Place In Time & Space here in Detroit. The remix from PITS founder John Joseph’s android alter ego, JC3, provides a bit of extra bump to let it burn on the dance floor. Stream / Download: https://fanlink.to/pts009
