Stacey Pullen

DJ-Kicks

Format: CD
Release Date World: Monday 14th October 1996

After brilliant reactions on all past releases of the "DJ-Kicks" – series with the likes of Carl Craig, Claude Young or Kruder & Dorfmeister we are proud to give one of the worlwide most skilled DJ his earned respect to show his unique mixing skills. DJ and producer Stacey Pullen belongs – beside Juan Atkins and Derrick May – to the old Detroit elite. As a resident DJ he was spinning at the legendary "Music Institute" being the very epicentre of techno then.
Musically influenced by European electronic musicians like Kraftwerk or Brian Eno and his African roots Stacey Pullen developed a musical style in the mid-eighties which entered dance history as "Tribal-House". Innovative DJs all over this planet were thrilled by his early productions under the akas of Kosmic Messenger, Bango and Silent Phase. His cooperations with Kevin Saunderson (Inner City’s "Praise" & "Follow Your Heart") and Derrick May (Rhythim Is Rhythim) became classics among the "early sound of Detroit". Releases on KMS, Plink Plonk and Transmat/R&S earned him lots of attention and respect over the last years. His fantastic – but strange enough undervalued – 1995 debut album "The Theory Of Silent Phase" became record of the month in the UK magazin "Muzik", being the only magazin to recognize its appropriate value .
Stacey Pullen’s set on "DJ-Kicks" – marked by several back-spins – features beside his own classics 21 (!) inter-continental tracks of Kenny Larkin, Roy Davies, Christian Vogel, Sean Deason, Patrick Pulsinger, Acid Jesus and Sterac as well as tracks of well known labels like Peacefrog, +8, Tresor, Warp, R&S, Art Of Dance and Transmat. This program is supplemented by less known titles of I-Fach (Baby Ford), Daphreephunkateerz or Wulf-N-Bear which make "Stacey Pullen’s DJ-Kicks" a must for all Detroit-Techno-Heads.
Highlight of his set is an exclusive track on a limited one-sided 12" which will be released as well as the CD on October 14th.
