Back in early ‘90s Detroit, Dan Bell turned bleeps and blips and the sounds of robot squirrel chatter into tracks like “Losing Control,” pioneering the indomitable groove that would be known as minimal techno. The Richie Hawtin collaborator also ran 7th City and Accelerate. Mentalux man Patrick Russell is something of a Detroit rarity: He loves disco edits, acid, jack, and experimentation more than techno purism. With Jackson Lee and Ben Jenkins.
