Underground Resistance presents

Underground Resistance presents/présente Interstellar FugitivesUS

CANADIAN DEBUT In 1989, ‘Mad’ Mike Banks and Jeff Mills laid the foundations of Underground Resistance (UR), a musical collective composed of various members from Detroit that related the aesthetics of early Detroit techno to the complex social, political, and economic circumstances which followed on from Reagan-era inner-city economic recession. In 1998, UR released Interstellar Fugitives, the collective’s first album proper which saw Mike Banks redefine the label’s sound as high-tech funk, reflecting a shift in emphasis from hard, minimal techno to breakbeat, electro and even occasional forays into drum & bass and hip hop. With its uncompromising anti-mainstream strategy, political activism, pioneering techno and pure rebel spirit, few labels have had such a significant impact as UR.
