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.

Interview by Electronic Groove with Roque Ybarra about his latest release with us!
Roque Ybarra: “These tracks have a really rowdy energy”
Known by her Techno Teacher alias, Kels has been a great supporter of the dance scene in Detroit and is also an educator in city schools. In recent times, she has turned DJ due to her compulsion of sharing music and she has provided PITS with a mix that focuses on the power of the female voice through sporadic vocals and genres. She recently signed on to a residency with Sexual Tension at Temple Bar Detroit. Let this mix be a taste of what you might expect every third Saturday of the month.
Bale Defoe has provided three tracks of dusty lo-fi goodness that can truly transport your mind to Detroit in the dead of winter. Bale has plenty of groove laden sample heavy cuts ready to be unleashed, the most recent with Ele Records of Manchester, UK. These tracks will keep your feet moving and head nodding as he puts the finishing touches on his first LP expected in late spring.
