About Model 500

The source for most of Juan Atkins' prime material, Model 500 was the Detroit godfather's guise for over a decade. Beginning with the 1985 classic "No UFO's" and extending to the release of his first proper LP (1995's Deep Space), the alias made Atkins' reputation with ten singles for his own Metroplex Records and several others for the Belgian R&S label. The same year Deep Space dropped, R&S also released a compilation including the best of Model 500's Metroplex material. [See Also: Juan Atkins, Cybotron, Infiniti] ~ John Bush
