JUAN ATKINS(born Detroit) is an American musician. He is widely credited as the originator of techno music, sometimes known as Detroit Techno since Atkins and techno co-creators Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson grew up in Detroit, Michigan. Atkins has cited the radio show of Charles "Electrifyin' Mojo" Johnson as a musical influence. Electrifyin' Mojo, a Detroit DJ, played an eclectic mix of music including Kraftwerk, Parliament and Prince. Atkins and friend Derrick May created mix tracks for Electrifying Mojo to broadcast, then began to create original music.

With "TERRENCE DIXON seems to constantly redefine what it means to be at the top of his game. I have to admit, though, I wasn’t aware of Dixon until I found last year’s stunning Train of Thought album on Yore Records. His choice of gnarled, densely textured loops was unconventional delight which certainly stood out, as it subtly threaded together a swath of otherwise incongruous sounds into floor-pounding and mind-warping techno tracks," says http://www.littlewhiteearbuds.com.
