Underground Resistance is probably the most militantly political outcropping of second-wave Detroit techno. Combining a grubby, four-track aesthetic, with strict DIY business philosophy, and an oppositional, militaristic ethos, UR has redirected their portion of the Detroit techno legacy to social activist ends, trading mainstream popularity and financial success for independence and self-determination. Launched in the early 90s by Mike Banks, Jeff Mills & Yolanda Reynolds, UR adapted the flavour and kick of early Detroit techno to the complex social, political, and economic circumstances of inner-city decline, an outlet for uncompromising music geared toward awareness and change.
