Model 500 - No U.F.O.s (1985)

Juan Atkins (Cybotron/Model 500)  is the man who singlehandedly put Detroit at the vanguard of electronic music in the early 80’s. He made music inspired by and in reaction to Detroit’s industrial heart. He got his ideas speeding down the highways at night. The lights, the factories, the fiery gaseous emissions- all of it is contained within his sound. Great to see people gettin’ down to it, in this clip from local Detroit TV.
