MXR.001 is the first vinyl sampler provided by the PITS label of Detroit, Michigan. Pressed at the local and reliable Archer Recordings, the record is an homage to the Motown sounds of the city with some bumping lo-fi beats to back it up. We are thrilled to have the first play of Bale Defoe‘s “Swang 2 The Right” – a low slung cut of deep house goodness.

With his first EP titled The High Press on ELE Records of Berlin, Bale Defoe began to breakout of his hometown of Detroit and he has continued to follow in that vain. Providing a steady stream of grooving bass heavy cuts among the underground, he has established a style for himself that stands out and always gets heads nodding. His first EP on PITS, Post Quebec Blues, was the beginning of a great partnership with label manger John Joseph and he has certainly been one of the main contributors to the project. Having played a recent after hours event in Detroit as part of the PITS series, PRTL, he kept the floor pounding past the 2AM marker.
He also works with Ryan McCray, another Detroit DJ conspirator, on the project Choose Better Friends. They host an event series at local reliable dive Donovan’s and bring out lots of quality artists, with the latest featuring 313 Acid Queen, aka Rebecca Goldberg. McCray and Defoe also share a musical collaboration, Black Bass, that will soon play a party hosted by local DJ duo So Vague. With a full plate of unreleased material ready to be unleashed, keep an eye out for him.
