If you have a somewhat familiar background with the origins of techno music, it should be known that Juan Atkins, a.k.a. Model 500, is considered to be one of the masterminds behind this style of music. As an alumni of Cybotron, he helped to craft a music that would plant its seeds in Detroit, only to grow and inspire many acts by the time the 1990's would emerge. Atkins used the Model 500 alias to release multiple 7" singles after leaving Cybotron, but it wouldn't be until 1995 that his potential has come to fruition with his debut full-length, Deep Space.
This is an entrancing experience that took the roots of techno and managed to breathe new life into them. Repetition plays key in this role, yet instead of dragging on, it instead captures the attention and draws it into the vision that Atkins had all along. The galactic production gives plenty of depth for this ride, bringing out the spirit within even the most minimal of moments possessed within. It is a whole different galaxy here, folks. It doesn't need complexity or anything different. Instead, it channels the vision of a highly respected landmark in electronic music at his full potential.
Deep Space is proof that if the elements are captured and used with their fullest potential at the right opportunity, high quality works will be the result. This is Atkins' testament and I wouldn't have it any other way.
