​Tresor Records to reissue five essential Detroit techno albums

This November, Tresor Records will be reissuing five crucial Detroit techno works from their catalog: Jeff Mills' ‘Waveform Transmission Vol. 3’, ‘Internal Empire’ by Robert Hood, Juan Atkins presenting Infiniti's ‘Skynet’, Drexciya’s infamous ‘Neptune’s Lair’ and ‘Arrange and Process Basic Channel Tracks’ from Scion.

Each album listed has played an essential role in defining the relationship between Berlin and Detroit techno and are universally praised for stirring the music genre into a global phenomenon. Released in 1994, both Jeff Mills' ‘Waveform Transmission Vol. 3’ and Robert Hood's ‘Internal Empire’ are albums that demonstrate Tresor's long-lasting dedication to the Underground Resistance ethos and to each member's solo projects that would follow.

In addition to these two seminal albums, Juan Atkins and Terrence Dixon's industrial soul work on 'Infiniti', Scion's minimal manipulation on 'Arrange and Process Basic Channel Tracks’ and the invaluable electro contribution of Drexciya's 'Neptune Lair' can all be counted as electronic music masterpieces. Marked as five of the label's most sought-after and historically significant releases, all of these albums culminate into what Tresor believes to be its "unmistakable identity."
