- The Bridge celebrates the Detroit-Berlin connection.
Terrence Dixon's Minimal Detroit project is becoming a label.
"After 8 years we are very proud to announce the first release of our new label Minimal Detroit Audio (MDA)," wrote Dixon. "This label will honour, respect and capture the very essence that made Detroit techno labels what they are today. This record celebrates the Detroit/Berlin relationship by using a bridge." There's no exact release date yet.
Dixon and Rod Modell, of DeepChord, represent Detroit, while Dixon's regular collaborator, The Orb's Thomas Fehlmann, and Domenique Xander represent Berlin. The Bridge was also mastered in Berlin and the vinyl was pressed at Archer Record Pressing in Detroit.
In our 2017 interview with Dixon, he describes Minimal Detroit as "something of ours out here, something that's about Detroit, something that can help children and young people."
