Cybotron - Enter
When I heard the track ‘Alleys of Your Mind’ on this album for the first time, I wasn’t massively into techno or electro. I didn’t care too much for that kind of music and then I heard that and was like ‘wow, what is this?’ It talked to my soul. A while after, I discovered that those guys - all the early techno and electro producers from Detroit - were of course very influenced by Kraftwerk, and I was already listening to them around the time. I was also listening to Chris & Cosey aged about 19, so it all made sense. I only fully discovered records like this, and that whole Detroit movement, years later when I was around 23.
