At the cusp of the 90s, when Tresor Club opened its doors to and created a label for the new sound coming from Detroit called TECHNO, a handful of the Motor City’s electronic music mavericks commanded the club’s decks and created a reputation that resounded around the world. The funk, the sensuality, the sexiness and the relentless electronic rhythm instantly became the stuff of legends. Two of the genre’s proponents and Tresor label innovators return to Tresor with their seasoned turntablism. Juan Atkins and Blake Baxter have released timeless, pioneering records in their time, and have been serving up house and techno sets for 25 years in our club – tonight you can taste some samples of these two dynamic advocates of techno. Milton Baldwin aka DJ Skurge shares the decks with Juan Atkins on the Tresor Floor: having been noticed by UR’s Mike Banks, he was invited to be in the foursome revival of Model 500 and a proper member of the UR family. His stern dedication to the crafts has seen him take on the role of musical director in many projects, while he somehow found time to release some genre bending EPs of his own while recording with The Aquanauts as well. Our skilled techno residents Ro and Mario Berger give power support for this basement line-up. In Globus, Blake Baxter shares the decks with Elbee Bad  – an absolute pearl of the Rush Hour reissue canons and a Berlin club house DJ icon; and Japan’s Shingo Suwa who began his career as a producer/DJ in 2004 and decided to move to Berlin in late 2005. Since his arrival he gained a lot experience by playing in many clubs and in other European countries. In early 2008 he founded his own label Merkur Schallplatten, with seven EPs that have received wide underground recognition. Shingo Suwa’s fresh groovy vibes have kept him very busy in the scene.
