Founded in 1986 by Derrick May, Transmat is one of the most important techno labels created in Detroit before 1990, alongside Metroplex and KMS.
Kevin Saunderson, Kenny Larkin, Carl Craig and a who’s who of the greatest Detroit techno legends have appeared on the label over the years, with an aggressively busy release schedule maintained throughout. Standout tracks include the inimitable ‘Strings Of Life’ by Rhythim Is Rhythim and early tech-house icon Aril Brikha’s ‘Groove La Chord’.
