Throwback: The Detroit Experiment-Think Twice

the-detroit-experiment

The Detroit Experiment was a collaborative album helmed by techno maestro Carl Craig as a follow-up to Rope A Dope Records’s Philadelphia Experiment. Craig and various cross-generational Detroit artists crafted techno, jazz, hip-hop and R&B into a unique fusion representing the city’s past, present and future in sound. Donald Byrd’s “Think Twice” is reworked and set to a torrid house groove that gets hotter with each note from Marcus Belgrave’s trumpet. Byrd was also a native Detroiter and his version of Larry Mizell’s composition kept with the album’s theme. The Detroit Experiment’s inventive sound produced by some of Detroit’s best musicians made the album an instant artifact reflecting Craig and company’s longstanding innovation in each genre.
