Model 500 – Control/The Messenger

The return of Model 500 was greeted with teary eyed nostalgia by many a techno dad and last year’s “Ofi” on R&S confirmed that Juan Atkins deserved his continuing place at the top of the techno pile.

The new material saw UR’s Mad Mike and Mark Taylor add to the line up but for this new outing, we return to the origins and see Atkins alone behind the desk.

Lead track “Control” combines sparse robotic vocals with a crunchy electro rhythm and punchy snares while “The Messenger” is our pick of the bunch on the flip.

Taking a slightly more laid back approach than the a-side, the hypnotic melodies and high pitched synth hooked provide perfect dj’ing and home listening material.

Available now from the R&S shop.
