Search By Tag: Juan Atkins

New release from the uber productive folks over at Scion continues the tradition of their previous Dirtbombs/ Omar-S collaborative release, pairing old dance music legend Juan Atkins with fresh faced house music purveyor Worthy.

Godfather of techno Juan Atkins continues his lifelong dedication to the genre he founded by harnessing its alien sounds and pushing his brand of futurism on the dancefloor. These three new, heavily layered tracks are abstract works of art that you can dance to. In turn, the remixers have pushed Atkins’ tracks to more experimental, more organic and more poppier places. It’s a perfect set of sounds for whatever part of the galaxy you’re listening in.

Worthy twists the patterns of the Atkins’ original into a techno-cumbia bounce anthem. Its robust bassline and syncopated programming anchor it through its acidy flourishes. It’s a real smile-inducing, crowd activating rerub.

American Made

Jan 29 2011

Nike Sportswear presents American Made which is a four part documentary series starring Swedish NBA player Jonas Jerebko along with one of Sweden’s most internationally known urban music artists Adam Tensta. This is a film about two young Swedes who are pushing their game to a new level. The documentary also features appearances from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrik Zetterberg, Obie Trice, Ben Wallace, Niklas Lidström and Juan Atkins. The episodes will go live at the Nike Sportswear Sweden Facebook page on the following dates:

26th January – Trailer
31st February – Episode 1
8th February – Episode 2
10th February – Episode 3
15th February – Episode 4

As part of American Made there will also be a basketball tournament hosted by Jonas Jerebko & Adam Tensta on February 18th, 6pm at Munchenbryggeriet in Stockholm. The event sees four teams Cali Crew, Sneakersnstuff, Tres Bién Shop and Shelta Basket pitch both a men and women’s 3-aside team to battle it out on the court to win the chance to travel to Detroit and see Jonas in action. Throughout the evening there will also be live sets and DJ sets from Adam Tensta, Gnucci Banana, Mashup International and DJ Taro & High Life.

We’ve got the latest track from Adam Tensta (who is set to release his sophomore album “Scared Of The Dark” on April 11th, he is also working with Top Billin & DJA on some other exclusives. Stay tuned!) in order to push this extravaganza and it’s an official edit of the recent single “Balloons” (released by our good friends in Finnish premier crew Top Billin) from L.A based dj/producer Them Jeans.
