Juan Atkins: The “Originator”

By October 15, 2019 No Comments

Juan Atkins is known as the “Originator” and one of the legendary Belleville Three, alongside Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. We don’t really need to explain the rest of the story again. Anyone even remotely interested in electronic music and techno should be familiar with Juan Atkins.
We had the pleasure of meeting the Detroit legend for this video feature in 2013, at Berlin’s Tresor Club. It’s a special place for Atkins and other first and second generation Detroit DJs, who were first brought to Germany by the club in the early ‘90s. Since then, the relationship between them has continued to flourish.
Sit back and listen to one of techno’s most important figures in this classic, originally released on Slices DVD series 1-13 which we produced for Telekom Electronic Beats
