Luciano will also be on remixing duties for the Metroplex double pack reissue of Juan Atkins’ seminal track from 1985.
Good news for Detroit techno fans: two of its most emblematic figures are teaming up for a reissue of one of the Motor City’s ultimate club hits. Juan Atkins‘ label Metroplex is preparing a double pack reissue of “No UFO’s”, featuring the first ever remixes of the track by Moodymann and Luciano. The four-track EP will feature the vocal and instrumental mixes from the original 12-inch, plus the two remixes on a second disc. Released back in 1985 under the Atkins alias Model 500, “No UFO’s” is a glittering relic from the earliest moments of Detroit techno. Its classic elastic bass line and skittish drum programming fused the precision of ’80s synth-pop with the future-funk of the forthcoming Detroit musical revolution. The record is set to be released later in October. Below you can hear the vocal and instrumental versions of the tracks.
A – No UFO’s (Vocal) (Original Mix)
B – No UFO’s (Instrumental) (Original Mix)
C – No UFO’s (Vocal) (Moodymann Remix)
D – No UFO’s (Vocal) (Luciano Remix)
