Juan Atkins Signing
We are delighted to announce our latest addition to Blue Raincoat Artists, Juan Atkins. Known alongside Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May as one of the Belleville Three, Atkins’ place in the history of dance music is unparalleled, heralded internationally as ‘The Originator’, one of the founding fathers of techno.
First producing in the mid 80’s under monikers Model 500 and Cybertron, Atkins achieved timeless hits with ‘No UFO’s’ & ‘Clear’. His momentum and development has endured ever since, seen in the sheer quality and breadth of his discography, including seminal works with Moritz von Oswald as Borderland.
