Scan 7: Interview with Trackmasta Lou & Mr. Hooper and a bangin' live session!


The Anxious Beat had the most rare and exceptional opportunity to have one of Detroit's own legends and heavyweights of techno and electronic dance music in the studio. In this premiere program on Retreat Radio (Malmoe, Sweden's keepers of underground soundwaves) we have the honor to meet Trackmasta Lou and Mr. Hooper of Scan 7. You better sharpen your ears for this one, as the mythical techno collective reveals details on rare or never spoken on matters and subjects as well as outlining a chronological timeline of the group's formation back in the early 90's . Our conversation also touches on cultural and political aspects of the music industry, church, plans for the future and some personal thoughts on their new 3×LP album release Between Worlds on Deeptrax Records. 

To top that off, we also got a exclusive bangin' live session recorded just for The Anxious Beat. You can also check it out at
