There’s really not much to say except the Godfather of Techno is back in Brooklyn for another special appearance, of course leading up to his appearance during the extended weekend of Detroit’s Movement festival. The legend that is Juan Atkins is back at Cameo Gallery, with support from TURRBOTAX resident and fellow Michigan native Contakt on the bill. Brooklyn is getting some serious midwest vibes tonight, and we at URB couldn’t be happier. Cameo is actually doing a ticket giveaway for this event, and it only takes a click or two to get entered into the drawing. Otherwise, check out some classic Juan Atkins vibes down below, as well as the flyer post-jump.

This week’s podcast comes from the dark soldier from the 313, MGUN. The alias of Manuel Gonzales has already put out a sizable discography since his 2010 debut on Wild Oats, the imprint run by fellow Detroit producer Kyle Hell. Gonzales has kept busy with stirring releases for the UK-based Don’t be Afraid label and the ever-evolving collective of releases that make up Will Bankhead’s label, The Trilogy Tapes; evoking a classic sense of Detroit whilst keeping his foot towards the futurism that made it a staple of electronic music. The sounds of MGUN are a certain blend of sonics that don’t warrant thoughts, just vibes. If you’re thinking about it, you’re doing it wrong. And considering that we here at URB are always trying to do it right, we implore you to check out his newest EP on Don’t Be Afraid “If You’re Reading This”, while at the same time checking out his amazing entry for this week’s podcast series. Tracklist below.

We at URB are delighted to present this week’s podcast, coming from the newest signing to R&S as well as a proper techno veteran, Paula Temple. Ever since she gained support from Dave Clarke, Claude Young and Jeff Mills in the early 2000s, Temple has laid low in terms of her audible output. Her first release, “The Speck Of The Future” was released on Chris McCormack’s Materials imprint to high praise, cementing her place in fiery techno lore for years to come. However, Temple didn’t stay put in the realm of techno, as she ventured off to aliases such as Fragile X and Jaguar Woman, where she would explore other realms of the sonic spectrum; not to mention co-developed and toured with the Grex MXF8 MIDI controller for years.
