It was called 'Alleys Of Your Mind'. A totally electronic dance record. A hundred percent electronic. Remember: whatever electronic related style you may be into today, it most probably wouldn't be where it's at, and wouldn't sound the way it does if it wasn't for Juan Atkins and his genre and mind blurring vision of music.

Enter is the debut studio album by American techno group Cybotron, released in 1983. In 1990, it was reissued under the new title, Clear. In 2013, it was reissued under the original title, Enter, with additional bonus tracks.

Alleys Of Your Mind Lyrics. Go cry from barren land Lost without a chance Go fight Don't tell what you see side by side Glazed eyes feel so high Anti love is the word No others ever heard. Alleys of your mind Paranoia right behind Alleys of your mind Out of sync, out of rhyme. Alleys of your mind Paranoia right.

Alleys of Your Mind (1981). was covered in. Alleys of Your Mind by The Dirtbombs (2011).

This is the first record by Juan Atkins and Richard Davis (AKA 3070) recording under the name Cybotron from way back in 1981. This is one of the very first Detroit Techno tracks which helped lay the foundations for Detroit Techno as we know it today. A seminal release in the true sense of the word.

Juan Atkins elucidated, in an interview for Electronic Standards, what was the 1st Techno piece ever: “There was a lot of discrepancy about ‘Sharevary’. Cybotron came first, and it came even before the name of the cartoon of the Transformers. The name was a combination of a Cyborg and a Cyclotron (machine that accelerate atomic particles).You have to listen to it, whatever it could be, it could be: a social cometary about the state of the World; just something to not be the same old love type of song, you know? We always made a point to say something meaningful, and we just wanted to bring the attention of the listener to the true state of the World.”Then, about the music genres confusion and the first landmark, the originator concluded, without hesitation:“I don’t really separate Techno from Electro.As far as Detroit Techno is concerned, this was the first Techno Tune ever.”

I couldn't care less about trying to find styles trying to label this record, or who was first this and that. What matters is that this is a very good record.

the cybotron vs sharevari "who was first / more techno" question leads to nothing imo :-)you could easily name loads of earlier stuff or records released in the same year that could be equally classified as proto techno, whatever. For example "throbbing gristle - hot on the heels of love", or "visage - frequency 7" what is a kind of sci-fi techno (and by the way massively inspired the some detroit artists ..).. and what a about "new music - 24 hours from culture" from 1981? this is nothing less than new beat, 5 years before "a split second".. not to speak about kraftwerk - it goes on and on :-)the same with chicago house.. jesse saunders - on and on, the first house record? yes, i a way, but check out the one year earlier "the broads - sing sing (Mega Be-Bop-Mix)". pure proto chicago jack house beat the first minutes ..

I see the Cybotron vs Sharevari argument......let me thrown in a Curve Ball...... Snowy Red https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=064CuzvHd1QI know it is very different....but it is so interesting that an alternate type of electronic sound was coming out of Belgium the same year

I'm curious why Sharevari is even an argument compared to this. Sharevari is clearly influenced by an amalgamation of dance music from the 70s and of course a heavy helping of Kraftwerk. No elements found in the first Cybotron record. The only thing that could be correlated is the vocal phrasing but even that is a stretch. One record is a nod to the past and one creating the future sound of detroit and then the world. Sharevari is pure novelty rarity fun stuff and way overrated ( i'll sell my copies of Sharevari any day without hesitation but not my 7" cybotron)
  • Ygglune
you wanna sell me your copy of sharevari then? (serious)

Mine is framed & mounted like a shrine. About as historically important to Detroit Techno as Darwin to the natural world. Of all the overpriced hyped (& often recent) records listed on this site, if one truly deserved a huge price tag, surely this is it. This didn't kick start a scene, it paved the way for modern dance music. Its influences are infinite, as with the Funk, Motown, electronic & european pop music which influenced it.

I love this record. It is perhaps the ultimate collision of Bernie Worrell, Junie Morrison, John Foxx and Ultravox. All I know is it is was funkier than "Mr. X" or "Herr X" by Ultravox, but it is pretty similar in patterns, basslines, lack of hi hats etc. Its biggest similarity to Shari Vari other than being from a Detroit party crew and being released in similar time is that the bassline usually only happens in the first half of the bar, leaving this great space, similar to the bass synth in Kano "I'm Ready".

"I came out with my first record in 1981. It was called 'Alleys Of Your Mind'. A totally electronic dance record. A hundred percent electronic. For that time, that was very unheard of, especially in the United States. I called this music techno music." "Now I didn't really intend to actually do... to have a label. The only reason why I did it is because I submitted my music to like every record company that you can imagine, and got turned down by all of them, you know. So I said, you know, I believed in this music, so much that I decided to release it on my own. But because of the reluctance of the record companies, you know, to do anything, the label just got bigger and bigger with every release, until like my third release was like Technicolor man. The label was huge!""The first record that I ever bought was "Family affair" by Sly & The Family Stone. P-funk was one of my biggest influences. But Sly & The Family Stone influenced p-funk."Three thoughts from Juan's mouth into our ears... ...and so history was created! Sharevari or not, who cares? Whether he came there first or not is irrelevant today. Time has proved Juan Atkins the true veteran and pioneer, and one day when history will write its pages, I'd be surprised if it doesn't quote the man himself. His high self esteem attitude and an unorthodox, innovative approach to music spawned a global musical revolution, which is still hatching results all over the globe to this present day.Maybe this record won't be owned or loved by everyone, but this is one piece of music anyone into electronic sounds should carefully listen through at least twice. Remember: whatever electronic related style you may be into today, it most probably wouldn't be where it's at, and wouldn't sound the way it does if it wasn't for Juan Atkins and his genre and mind blurring vision of music. Much respect is due here!

What is this Juan Atkins interview you're quoting? I don't see it anywhere online.

One of the real mothers of Detroit Electro/Techno. 3 different pressings of this masterpiece exist, the whitel Label, the red/white Label and this full red Label one! My opinion is that this full red Label pressing is the rarest of all pressings. Also I must say that both tunes sounds better on this pressing, I don't know why! The best is to have all the 3 pressings ;-)PeaceFab

Fancy an argument anyone? imho THIS is the first techno track and not "Sharevari" by A Number of Names. Why? Sharivari sounds more like like weird disco; its lyrics aspire to trendy clothes brands, sports cars etc... yawn)- and that's just not techno imagery. Whereas "Cosmic Cars" is a one-off classic (try it at 33 instead of 45 rpm and you get a flowing freaked-out futuristic epic). "Alleys..." is surprisingly new-wave(ish); the version on the "Enter" LP is sung straight, whereas this earlier 7" recording has a much more robo-heavy vocal delivery. 5/5
