“Interdimensional Transmissions co-founder, highly respected DJ, and dance music historian Brendan M. Gillen (BMG) curated this long-in-the-making set of edits, remixes, and reworks of Funkadelic classics. Considering how much of a direct influence P-Funk has had on Detroit's music scene (including but not limited to house, techno, hip-hop, soul, and garage rock), a Detroit-centric tribute seems only natural. Everyone who contributed to this album is highly regarded by the Detroit dance elite, and the only reason legends such as Theo Parrish and Carl Craig are absent is because they didn't think their mixes were up to par, demonstrating the amount of reverence Detroiters have for Funkadelic's music and cultural importance. The mixes that do appear here stay true to the originals, sparingly adding any additional sounds (P-Funk alumni Amp Fiddler plays keyboard parts on a few of these mixes) and generally accentuating the grooves and making the tracks more DJ-friendly, or else emphasizing their trippy, interstellar qualities.” – AllMusic

“Iconic Motor City producers are reimagining the songs of Parliament, in new album Funkadelic Reworked by Detroiters, from Ace Records. The 17-track album, which spans funk, rock, disco, techno and house edits, includes reimaginings from Detroit legends Moodymann (as well as his Kenny Dixon Jr. alias), Amp Fiddler, and Underground Resistance, amongst others. Highlights include Anthony “Shake” Shakir and T Dancer giving ‘Standing on the Verge’ a touch of techno grit, while Gay Marvine puts his boogie-filled, magic dance floor touch on ‘Undisco Kidd’. There were a selection of legendary Detroit producers who didn’t make the cut though, “Theo Parrish, Carl Craig and Wajeed all worked on remixes but felt their mixes just didn’t hold up to Funkadelic’s legacy – that is truly a rare kind of respect, and shows you just how much this music still means in Detroit,” says album curator Brendan M. Gillen, of Interdimensional Transmissions.” – The Vinyl Factory
