Classic Detroit Techno from UR man James Penningtom a.k.a Suburban Knight. This was originally released under the Suburban Knight moniker on a UR EP from 1994 called ‘Dark Energy’. It has been re-released on a collection of tracks from Pennington under the guise of Dark Energy titled ‘Collided Energy’, released in 2007. This track is in keeping with the classic Motor City sound; lush, warm, yet driving and pulsing Techno. The story behind the title of the track was revealed by Pennington in an interview with Kodwo Eshun.
His grandfather was fighting as a GI in Germany in the second world war. One night the German shot flares into the sky which he stated lit up like a midnight sun.
