Juan Atkins’ deep and moody ‘Skynet’  LP as Infiniti resurfaces for its 20th anniversary reissue on Tresor
Alongside his part in the 3MB album and on Model 500’s ‘Deep Space’, Juan’s work on ’Skynet’ ranks among his 3 crucial LPs of that decade. But where 3MB was very much a joint effort, and Model 500 rolled far out into jazzier, cosmic breaks, ’Skynet’ trades in pure techno and house in Juan’s patented style.
The results make for a slickly coherent album as well as a strong batch for the DJs, stretching out from the supple swang and floating voices of its title track, to the dub techno lave of ‘Walking On water’, a slinky percy named ‘Thought Process’, the deep techno-pop of ‘Postcard From The Future’, and the wicked, experimental arrangement of ‘Body Oil’.
