  • Tresor is pulling out all the stops for their 30th anniversary, with a 12-LP compilation and lots more besides. Metroplex head and Detroit techno pioneer Juan Atkins' relationship with Tresor goes back to the early '90s— he was one of the first artists to release on the Tresor label. (The 1992 collaboration between 3MB and Magic Juan Atkins was recently reissued.) Now, Tresor has shared a rare live mix from Magic Juan Atkins. Recorded live at the club in January of 2020, the mix encapsulates the ongoing vitality of the Detroit-Berlin connection.
