Back in 2014, Ultramajic’s Jimmy Edgar received information about an East Detroit storage unit containing vintage recording equipment and historical items of Detroit Techno.
Out of the, at least 1000, vinyl records and some miscellaneous recording equipment, Jimmy came into the possession of over 100 DAT and 1/4” reel tapes. One box contained meticulously dated tapes from 1995 -1998 with sharpie inscription “ASHTAR LAVANDA”. After nearly two years, Jimmy and Ultramajic managed to connect with Ashtar and now presents the music to you.
With the release of “Unsolved Mysteries,” and upcoming musical archives, Ashtar will be known as one of the true pioneers of late 90s Detroit Electro alongside artists such as AUX88, Ectomorph, Dopplereffekt, and Drexciya.
“Unsolved Mysteries” is available 9 February on Ultramajic
