Jaco Matthews is a fresh new talent on the Detroit scene with some serious style and a penchant for seriously groovy disco cuts. We caught his set at Dally in the Alley this past summer and he had people stomping in the afternoon! He and co-conspirator Gino have a social happy hour at TV Lounge on Thursdays called Snack Time, featuring hot tunes and hot food. He also hosts regular gigs at Whiskey Disco. Catch him there Fri Jan 25 with Beige!
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.
