Blake Baxter - The H-Factor

The poet, techno producer, and vinyl protectionist advocate Blake Baxter is a Detroit veteran, even though he's currently living in Los Angeles. In 1988, he was one of the artists featured on the "Techno! The New Dance Sound of Detroit" album released by Virgin 10 out of London. A major Detroit venue, the Majestic, was practically home to Blake back in the early 90's and this allowed him to make an important contribution in expanding techno's audience. Disko B, or "Disko Bombs", out of Munich released the ever-so-bangin' "The H-Factor" and has been putting out a consistent stream of records since 1991.
