Never On A Sunday is one of many names used by Detroit's Burden Brothers otherwise known as Octave One, a project that has been running since the early 90's. Fans of Detroit Techno and House will already be familiar with the brothers output over the last 20+ years and "Day By Day" has long been at the top of the wants list for lovers of the Motor City sound since it's 1992 release on 430 West.
Clocking in at six tracks and straddling a more melancholic, deep House / Garage sound than the Burden's Techno outings "Day By Day" is a complete journey on one EP, a mini epic. From the sax and piano jamming "Jackie's Theme" and the introspective and rolling "Carnal Pleasures" through to the airy, melodic groove of "In The Breeze" featuring frequent collaborator Lisa Newberry's instantly recognizable vocals the whole record sits perfectly as one piece with each track complimenting the other beautifully. A real treat for Detroit lovers or those who have a fond ear for the deeper and more emotive side of electronic music.
Re-mastered, re-pressed and re-released in conjunction with the Burden Brothers / 430 West Records, Detroit USA.
