After releasing 2 albums in 2018, Vince Watson waste’s no time and announces ‘DnA’, an almost 20 track album project focusing purely on Detroit Techno and House and what might be his biggest and best album to date.

Released on his own Everysoul label, Vince’s 12th album has been years in the making and see’s him go directly back to his Detroit roots.

Being requested to remake Rhythim Is Rhythim’s ‘Icon’ and ‘Kao-tic Harmony’ by Derrick May himself in 2015 greatly inspired Vince to begin writing new original Detroit material and was the catalyst for ‘DnA’s inception.

The album is a dedication and reflection of the three waves of Detroit Techno that inspired a generation and countless electronic producers around the globe. Watson wanted to honour this in the music as closely as possible. Hints of Derrick May, Carl Craig, Mad Mike, Juan Atkins, Kenny Larkin, Stacey Pullen and Dan Curtin can all be heard influencing across the album.

Featuring a selection of sketchy hi tech soul, lushest pads and string sequences, jazzy 909 hi-hat workouts, raw 808 electro and filtering Chez Damier styled house tracks all brought together with a succession of short variations and instrumental snippets from the albums best moments contribute to a vision of what the past thought the future should be.

Not only is ‘DnA’ suggestive of some kind of mysterious gene required to create such unique complexed music, but it also represents Detroit (a city where Vince grew his musical inspirations from) and Amsterdam (the city where his musical inspirations are now created).

Watson’s association with Detroit Techno runs deep with some of its original innovators. Not many artists outside of Motor City can say they have had 5 releases on Planet E, Transmat and 430West while he has also remixed Carl Craig, Derrick May and Octave One. With this in mind, ’DnA’ suddenly feels like a natural (re)evolution.

‘DnA’ will be released on Vinyl as well as Digital. The wax version of the album sees 7 of the tracks spread across 2x12” Sampler’s released in April and June...followed by an 8 track LP in September. The Digital version of the samplers get extra exclusive tracks, and the Digital version of the LP features all 18 tracks in their original intended order.

Sampler One was released 22 April. (esol014).
DnA LP is released 19 August. (esol016)


released June 27, 2019
