About this item

Metroplex continues its run of reissues with two more seminal releases from the label's golden back catalog. First off is M003, aka late 80's Metroplex electro staple Channel One, a Juan Atkins joint with Doug Craig (Carl Craig's cousin) on vocals. Futuristic and playful techno from the late 80s which soundwise evolves from Cybotron and the obvious Kraftwerk influences. Juan Atkins said about the release in a 2005 interview that 'it was more fun than politically driven, just about the colors and combination spread from colors'. An important release in the history of techno from both a cultural and creative perspective. Channel One's "Technicolor" has been carefully remastered from the original tapes. Truly timeless stuff!


Matt says: Proto-techno classic "Technicolour" is one of Juan Atkin's most celebrated releases. An essential reissue for those that might have worn out their original copy, or any new inductees to the techno movement.
