17/09/2020: “The Chase (Smooth Mix)” by Juan Atkins

Juan Atkins is one of the three legendary ‘originators’ of Detroit Techno. You could say, without too much hyperbole, that techno wouldn’t exist without him.

Model 500 is one of Juan’s alias. Although the other mixes of this song are fine – this mix does it for me. It does what it says on the tin. Smoooth…

In all seriousness though, this is a classic piece of Detroit history. Even though this was released in 1989, it still sounds ahead of its time today, in my opinion.
