Detroit Underground (est. 1997) is a multidisciplinary arts collective. Functioning primarily as a record label dedicated to electronic based experimental music and video installation.
Detroit Underground takes us on a chaotic and gripping trip into the nexus of modern experimental and future core music. Representing a palette of artists whose unflinching passion for the bizarre and surreal sonic landscapes of this, and other dimensions, Detroit Underground keeps the secular world at large guessing where the boundaries of sound and silence begin and end. Sounds are fractured into geometric slivers which penetrate the observer's existence and embed themselves under the skin. Self-replicating fragments of noise expand from seed form into a digital chaos garden, challenging the notions that humans and technology are, and will remain, biologically separate.
Installments of Detroit Underground are presented by an ever expanding roster of brain blitzed scientists, citing Kero, Annie Hall, Richard Devine, Jesse Somfay, Sense, Vaetxh, Exillon, Jimmy Edgar, Corbin Davis + more. DET_UND is firm in it's resolve to deteriorate our collective sanity into pixelated half-remnants of our analog beginnings. Militant brigades of audio destructors pose serious threats to those who wish music to remain in the cozy confines of historical context. All memories of socially constricted sound will be washed away into the gutter of primordial sludge, and reformed by the noxious twisting and turning of an ever evolving interconnected series of drain pipes, piping hot steamy sleaze for your future neural apparatus.
