K-Hand -Tools Vol. 1 (Detroit House and Techno -4 solid cuts re-mastered !!
Kelli Hand has long been at the front of Detroit House and Techno as a DJ and as a producer, in the past she has collaborated and released music with Claude Young, Robert Hood, Mike Banks and many more and her own Acacia Records label has released a long string of essential 12"s since it's 1990 inception. "Tools Vol.1" was released in 2002 and features 4 solid cuts from Kelli who is in full-on House mode. This EP is definitely for the DJ's, with each track being a real joy to blend in and out of the mix, you might even need 2 copies of this one! On side-A opener "My Love" is a stomping, stripped back, peak-time killer that's all heavy drums, trippy synth sounds and a lusty female voice while second track "Without You" is a smoothed-out vocal cut with rough beats, a rolling Disco leaning bass-line and some slick horns. On side-B we have "Remember When", an epic, string laden banger that builds and builds, getting heavier and more rhythmic as the track progresses. Finishing out the EP is "Want U Back" a pacey, organ driven 90's vibing House jam laced with vocals and samples, big room business! This elusive EP has been tough to track down in the past, and we are proud to make it available again, re-mastered, re-pressed and re-released in conjunction with Kelli and Acacia Records Detroit.
