'Time...Space...Transmat...' Model 500 is the sound of the Future.
Founder and 'Godfather of Techno' Juan Atkins' first group Cybotron began making records in 1981. Tunes like the oft-sampled 'Clear' helped define the sound of Electro while 'Techno City' provided the name and blueprint for the new music coming from the Motor City in the mid and late 80's.
Atkins began recording and performing as Model 500 in 1985. His Metroplex imprint issued 'No UFO's' and 'Night Drive,' tunes that embodied and informed the stripped down, futuristic, funky-electronic ethos that was and is Detroit Techno. Further releases on European and American labels solidified his position at the forefront of the genre.
Detroit veterans 'Mad Mike' Banks DJ Skurge snd Mark Taylor 'DJ Vintage Future' joined Model 500 in 2008 and the four continue to explore the possibilities and push the boundaries of the sound.
We're proud and honored to be hosting Model 500, performing live for their 1st West Coast appearance, along with resident DJ's Conor, Solar, and Josh Cheon (Dark Entries Records, Honey Soundsystem) at the 3rd Anniversary of No Way Back. Join us at Mezzanine on November 16th and witness the Future...
