Motor City Drum Ensemble – Send A Prayer EP

Motor City Drum Ensemble

Dani Plessow dons the Motor City Drum Ensemble name with Say A Prayer signaling a return to the production game following his much publicized creative burnout. It’s clear that Plessow’s period of convalescence has worked wonders, with the four tracks here every bit as deep and dusty as the much vaunted Raw Cuts series upon which the MCDE (Motor City Drum Ensemble) project was launched skywards. Proceedings open with the two part suite of the title track, laying down fuzzy chords and intermittent vocal swoons over a gritty 909 backbone on the opening track; part 2 meanwhile will have you digging out those Raw Cuts 12″s in order to do a MCDE (Motor City Drum Ensemble) master mix, such is its immediate warmth and neck snapping drums. Meanwhile, Plessow uses “The Stranger” as a chance to traverse bleepier, rattling techno terrain with superb results, whilst “SP11″ is rasping high octane house at its finest.
