Since 1991, UR's many live appearances (called assaults) worldwide have cemented the labels place in history. They were the first Detroit based act to actually play techno live and the first group to use a DJ as an actual bandmember! The shows are an exciting blend of man and machine. The bands skill, musicianship, disciplined manners and intelligent interviews have made them and the label some of the most respected ambassadors of "Detroit Techno" all over the world.
