A throwback Thursday special, this 1983 release from American group Cybotron (Juan Atkins and Richard Davis) on Fantasy Records oozes a dark funky synth driven beat. Although generally considered Electro, Cybotron was part of the early evolution of techno music, with Juan Atkins being widely credited as the originator of the genre along with Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. Cybotron’s unique and eclectic combination of influences such as Italo disco, Midwestern funk and synthesizer pioneers Kraftwerk, combined with a bold experimental aesthetic became the underpinnings of Detroit techno.
