"The Los Hermanos collective have a high profile because of the ridiculously high level of quality of their material. Originally a collaboration between Gerald Mitchell and DJ Rolando, their early releases followed in the steps of the mighty 'Jaguar' in mixing beautiful driving melodic techno with emotional strings. Since Rolando's departure, Santiago Salazar and DJ Dex have joined with Gerald Mitchell and moved in a slightly different direction without sacrificing any of the sound's individuality or quality. Standing somewhere between techno and house and taking influence from the true sound of Latin music without sounding derivative, Los Hermanos releases remind us that the best Detroit techno defines what is truly 'deep'. 'Central Nervous Systems' celebrates conscious and unconscious behaviors, which seek to embrace euphoria and it's release in your body and mind. 'Midnight in Madrid,' transports listeners to the dance floor with its straightforward soulful expression. 'Remember Detroit' is an anthem of everyday life in the city, reaching deep to reveal the connection of urban environment and the love from its embattled courageous citizens. The ingredients of 'Dark Samba No. 7', has the listener experience passionate pulsating beats on an ancient level. This EP is drawn from the full length album, Traditions and Concepts." The manufacturer of this released responded to some questions about the sound of this release: "Re: concerns on the part of certain customers about the sound on SUBWAX003, track B1 'Remember Detroit'. We checked the wax against the digital file and our analysis of the sound is that the vinyl mastering brought out some upper harmonic content in the Hammond / Leslie sound. If you understand how Leslie speakers, tape flanging, and chorus doubling works, as well as the vagaries of analogue mastering, you could see how this could happen. While the effect is certainly noticeable, our opinion is this is not a defective product, it's just the way it sounds."
