Delano Smith & Leon Vynehall

He was one of the top DJs on the Detroit house scene in the 1980s, mentored by the late, great Ken Collier, but Delano Smith has never been a very productive producer. That's why it's always worth paying attention when he does release something: this time, it's upcoming compilation album Detroit Lost Tapes, which ought to be a real treasure chest for the nostalgically minded. Catch the veteran at Contact, where he'll be flanked by underground house ace Leon Vynehall, who can work expertly through anything from slow-burning basement cuts to in-yer-grill bangers.
