Cybotron

Biography

This is the band that Juan Atkins was in before he went on to invent the Detroit Techno sound. One can find here the roots of Techno and Ambient as well as some period pieces. Rik Davis, Atkins, and Jon S. stretch the available technology to its limits in creating habitable Ambient soundscapes. Their Roland synths still emit identifiable keyboard sounds, and the drum loops are definitely pre-909. But don't expect a pure batch of proto-rave material; this band wreaks havoc on genre. For example, be prepared for a journey back to early '80s New Wave-influenced Goth Rock and marvel at the fact that you're not listening to the Cure.
