Lots of Detroit techno in this set. Eddie "Flashin'" Fowlkes, Los Hermanos, Robert Hood (here with a remix), Mad Mike (as Underground Resistance, also The Martian), Derrick May, Jeff Mills, and Stacey Pullen (as Silent Phase). Also Aril Brikha, whose excellent Deeparture In Time was first released on the famous Detroit label Transmat.
It's worth mentioning the news around John Beltran's Ten Days Of Blue, since it's why the track Deluge appears in this mix. See this article at Resident Advisor for the details. I picked up the album while it was available from Beltran's bandcamp page; it's since been taken down. It's an amazing album, worth seeking out for anyone interested in the more ambient side of techno. I hope Beltran and Peacefrog can work out their differences.
All of these tracks are good, but I think the arrangement (and mixing) could use some work. A couple of proper jams at the end had me up and moving; those Los Hermanos tracks in particular.
