Yep, it really happened...
Juan Atkins

Continually evolving, Wild Beasts' fourth album 'Present Tense' saw the Kendal group flirt with electronics.

Since then, the material has been remixed and re-versioned by all manner of guest producers, from big names to underground heroes.

Juan Atkins is, we guess, kinda/sorta both. Part of epochal techno trio the Belleville Three, the producer has spent three decades at the frontline of musical innovation.

Invited to remix 'Present Tense' highlight 'Mecca', Juan Atkins teases out some proto-techno noises, including the odd acid squelch or two.

It would take a brave selector to play this out, but - for posterity's sake - you can check it out below.
