Juan Atkins is one of the founders of Cybotron, an influential electro duo whose tracks may be considered the first instance of proto-techno. He kickstarted the first wave of Detroit techno through productions from his Model 500 alias. His relationship with Tresor Records started in 1992 and has spanned seminal records such as Skynet under the alias Infiniti. Characterised by his ability to make machines speak, to give them soul, his production style has inspired a legion of admirers and can still be heard on dancefloors across the globe.
