Club Nights

Juan Atkins headlines the "NewFoundSound" event at Maximillian's this week, which is a bit paradoxical: Considered the Godfather of Techno and a pioneer of today's Detroit sound, he's been producing records for nearly twenty years. Under his real name or one of his aliases (such as Modal500, Infiniti or Cybotron), Atkins has been birthing hit vibes ever since his electro single "Clear" swept the clubs in 1982. After founding Metroplex Records in 1985, Atkins lent his gold touch as a producer to aspiring club artists and created a virtual soundtrack for the digital era. But unlike many of his contemporaries, Atkins has remained active and on the road: Catch him on Thursday, May 29, with DJ Vitamin D and DJ Vanish, and get a little of that sweet Motown sound -- techno-style. -- Catalina Soltero
