Juan Atkins has joined Moritz von Oswald to collaborate on their duo Borderland’s new album “Transport”, due out on Tresor in April.
Tresor – the Berlin heart of techno celebrates 25 years in 2016 and a new release from Borderland will be a great addition to the club/labels long list of essential releases and parties.
“The Detroit-Berlin axis triangulates to a third point which, like the atomic particle that lives in two places at once, flickers between a form of techno-charged ambience and a futuristic club-jazz which cannot be broken down into constitutive parts. Borderland remains caught in a state of enraptured stillness, invisibly moving between every imagined future for electronic sound making. The result: a font from which springs serene and exhilarating musical ideas that vibrate with refined energy for sixty seconds in every minute.”
In addition to that, this year sees the comeback of some of the Model 500 (Juan Atkins, Mike Banks, DJ Skurge & Mark Taylor) records and The Vision (Robert Hood) rare records on Metroplex. Someone can say that repressing the classics kills the magic of owning the first press, but we cannot agree. The more people get a chance to purchase these records on vinyl, the longer the classics will live. An extremely rare Metroplex EP “No UFO’s” will be released with two remixes by Green Velvet and Luciano.
