It's amazing how much credit went to Juan Atkins for his role in Cybotron. I converse quite often with Tyrone Steels I (check the credits on "Enter") and I've had the good fortune to speak with Rik Davis. I've come to realize over the years that the pure genius of Cybotron is Rik Davis. Although Rik took a different direction back in 1993, there is a deeper meaning to the music. The official Cybotron website (http://www.cybotron.com) is where Rik is today.

cybotron was an integral part to the electro scene that was coming out in the mid 80's. cybotron kicked harder and was less cheesy than some of the records that came up around the same time. tracks such as clear and cosmic cars were far more advanced and still manage to sound fresh some 20 years later!

The seminal electro group Cybotron provided the first home for the recordings of techno godfather Juan Atkins. With partner Rick Davis (aka 3070), Atkins recorded several of electro's best moments. The singles "Alleys of Your Mind," "Enter" and "Clear", were dark dystopias of the post-industrial steel city within tight Kraftwerk-inspired funk. Their success prompted Fantasy Records to sign the group, and release 1983's Enter LP. Atkins left soon after due to artistic differences (specifically, Davis' defined pop slant), and later defined early Detroit techno with his recordings as Model 500. Davis continued to release albums as Cybotron into the mid-'90s, though the mystical R&B direction of efforts like Empathy and Cyber Ghetto were quite a turn from the group's beginnings. For fans of electro and techno, Cybotron ended when Juan Atkins left.

Juan Atkins and Rick Davis made the basics for the Developmentof Detroit techno with their releases between 1981 - 1984. At this point don't forget the essential release "Shari Vari" by the legendary act "A Number Of Names" in 1981.
