The Vision
Spectral Nomad

The Vision is an alias of a certain Robert Hood, the Detroit techno mastermind. Spectral Nomad dates back to 1996, when its tightly-packed minimal style caused a stir among the deep listeners and the club rollers alike. Saying that, these four tracks can still turn heads today. This exciting 12” r...view item »

Black Noise
Nature Of The Beast

Mike Grant (AKA Cool Peepl) and Damon Peterson (AKA 8088, Baby Pop, Damon Lamar) have got together as Black Noise to release Nature Of The Beast via Metroplex. If you’ve read this far, you’ll already know that this is essential techno. It was pressed in Detroit too. Perfect. Repress ...view item »

Model 500
No UFO's Remixes

Juan Atkins’ calling card to extraterrestrial life sounds as vital now as it did back in ’85, but the key building block in what is now called techno has never received a modern re-rub. That all changes as second generation Detroit hero Moodymann turns in something of a cover version of the lege...view item »

M500 & 3MB
Jazz Is The Teacher

First ever reissue, Discogs is gonna go nuts. Detroit techno pioneer Juan Atkins has gone under many aliases (Channel One, Output, Infiniti), M500 was a solo project in 1993 and teamed up with berliners Moritz von Oswald, Thomas Fehlmann...view item »

Model 500
Sound Of Stereo / Off To Battle

Following new pressings of early Model 500 classics ‘Night Drive’ and ‘The Chase’, the Metroplex reissue campaign continues with this 4-track EP, originally released in 1987. Once you get stuck into the model 500 catalogue, it&...view item »

Model 500
Night Drive

Model 500 is of course a pseudonym for Detroit super-producer Juan Atkins. On this EP first released in 1985, Atkin lays down the foundation blocks of the Detroit electro / techno sound: this 12” includes a version of the very first Model 500 single, and it still sounds fr...view item »

Population One
A Mind Of His Own

Terrence Dixon had a couple of releases as Population One on Juan Atkins’ legendary label Metroplex “back in the day” with 17 years between his Earth 2976 12” and A Mind Of His Own. Now officialy remastered and put back out through Metroplex, these four ...view item »

Arnold Steiner
Mood Sequence

Arnold Steiner is a Venezuelan producer (now resident in Miami) and the owner / operator of the Transient Force label. The guy certainly knows his way around an electro floorfiller, and this release presses up some of the highlights of his 2009 Mood Sequence album, previously...view item »

Population One
Detroit City At Night

Population One paints a picture of Detroit At Night as a place on edge. The grooves draw on the city’s illustrious techno / house history, but something about the tone of the synths feels uneasy, not quite right. Quite an effective contrast, and a great way to reconcile...view item »

Pema Ozer

Weighty techno productions from space (or so it sounds). Kimyon sets all the elements in motion and judiciously tweaks and adjusts along the way, never threatening the essential momentum of the mighty drum machine. This 12” offers up the original version of ‘Steep’, plus a dubbed...view item »

Model 500
The Chase

Model 500 is of course a pseudonym for Detroit super-producer Juan Atkins. On this EP resurrected from the beating heart of 1989 The Chase, Atkin spins out multiple mixes of the tune, inviting Derrick May to contribute two. This is 12 inches of vintage original techno f...view item »

Shifting Forward

Finally releasing his debut for Metroplex, Plural, also known as James Johnson, is back with his Midwestern mix of techno and general subtle and well-considered tunes. Shifting Forward aims to put Detroit techno in a new light by adding a fitting dance floor sound to ensure your feet will move with swag...view item »

Model 500
Digital Solutions

Detroit techno legend Model 500 (aka Juan Atkins) is back with Digital Solutions. This is the first record Atkins has put out under the Model 500 alias (rather than his own name) since 1999, so we might expect him to take it old-school for this release. Single CD or Dou...view item »
