Black Milk - "Detroit's New Dance Show"
Black Milk comes through with some dance-floor certified frequencies on his latest single "Detroit's New Dance Show" off his upcoming If There's Hell Below LP. This new-wave-tinged rocker comes as a follow up to last month's "What It's Worth" and pays proper dues to Hitsville's legendary TV program The New Dance Show (adapted as the city's answer to the departure of The Scene) which was foundational in providing a window into the city's house scene and promoting Detroit techno in the hightop fade era.
Not surprisingly, the track boasts a litany of electronic embellishments and submerged synth-work over a driven drum program for steppers to get with (not to mention a few fiery verses from the man they call Milk.) It's a bit of a departure from the organic Dilla-fied jawns we've come to expect from your boy, but it's a clear testament to the D-town beat-smith's broadening range of production styles, more reminiscent of the Tronic years or, more particularly, Prince's "Erotic City." Go ahead and get loose with the latest set of sonics from Black Milk with "Detroit's New Dance Show" and stay tuned as we draw closer to the unveiling of If There's Hell Below.
