First Listen: Juan Atkins/Audiotech – ‘I Love You’/'Techno City ’95′
Here’s the premiere of Juan Atkins’ re-issue 12″ for Tresor, ‘Archive#7′.
The legendary techno label Tresor is now over 20 years and 250 releases deep. Its long-standing relationship with the Detroit scene has welcomed the likes of Mike Huckaby, Jeff Mills, Drexciya, Terrence Dixon and Robert Hood to join names such as Surgeon, Regis, Neil Landstrumm, Joey Beltram, Ben Sims and James Ruskin in one of the most comprehensive discographies in electronic music’s history.
Their re-issue, ‘archive’ series began in 2001 with a Juan Atkins track, under his Model 500 alias, being repressed alongside Christian Vogel and Daniel Bell cuts. In the five ‘archive’ releases since, Bam Bam, Robert Hood, Blake Baxter, Eddie ‘Flashin’ Fouwlkes and Jeff Mills have featured, and after a ten year break, it returns with ‘I Love You’/'Techno City ’95′.
Electronic ballad ‘I Love You’ first came out in 2004, on vinyl only, as part of Atkins’ ‘Fast Forward’ EP, and ‘Techno City ’95′ was released under his Audiotech alias, via Metroplex in, as the name suggests, 1995. Through Robert Elster’s re-masters, they’ve been given a new lease of life and cutting-edge sound to accompany the vintage Detroit production.
