Tresor Invites Juan Atkins – In Detroit in the late 80s, a handful of musicians and electronic composers were tinkering with the mixture of styles that was to become known as “techno”. One of these legendary futurists was JUAN ATKINS.
Finding inspiration in the European synth sounds of Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, etc. and sampling these together with U.S. hip hop and funk, a new sound hit the Detroit dancefloors and was an instant hit. His first Model 500 releases showed a distinct and individual style and are today historic artifacts of the genre yet remain timeless and revered.
His subsequent albums on our house label and his own Metroplex label have cemented JUAN ATKINS’ reputation as one of the most important and enduring electronic music artists of modern times. Juan has been in the Tresor family for the last 27 years and it is a pleasure and honour to welcome him back to the decks during our birthday month.
Two of our best techno residents MARIO BERGER and TAG will provide solid support sets.
