Detroit mainstay Mike Huckaby will release a record of Sun Ra edits later this month. Mike Huckaby Reel To Reel Edits Vol.1 will be released on Rush Hour sub label Kindred Spirits and features subtly tweaked versions of Sun Ra classics ‘UFO’ and ‘Antique Blacks’ – two of the visionaries’ more dance-floor friendly excursions which have been updated and rearranged to fit in with a more contemporary DJ set.
Whether later records in the series will be from Sun Ra or from Huckaby is not quite clear, but looking at the gorgeous silk screened artwork by Stephen Serrato, the record has ‘collectors series’ quite literally stamped all over it.
Take a listen here.
