You might have heard it before, it’s been out for a couple of weeks now. We’re talking about Bullion‘s brilliant remix for Juan Atkin’s legendary Detroit outfit Model 500. And “brilliant” might not be the appropriate expression here, bananas would be more suiting for this psychedelic trip.
The Space Dimension Controller remix on the flipside goes into a different direction, but it’s none the less a killer for itself. You can still get hold of this 10-inch from about everywhere, we suggest you start at your favourite local record store!
Here’s the b-side taken from the new Model 500 12-inch on R&S, the Detroit outfits first new release in over a decade. If you have any doubts about what a couple of mid-forties are still be capable of, this track should teach you a lesson in deep and powerful techno music.
On the a-side you will find OFI (click for a stream) in its original version and a remix by Mad Mike Banks of Underground Resistance. Thanks to the guys at XLR8R, you can downloadHuesca for free.
Pre-order the 12-inch from Juno or the digital release Boomkat. The release date for this is September 6th, 2010.
Today is the last day of this year’s Movement/DEMF and incidently Model 500 are on the line-up for tonight. Here you can listen to their live show from the 2005 Detroit Electronic Music Festival, or Fuse-In as it was called that year.

Belgian blog Laid Back has a nice trailer of a documentary called Megunica. Director Lorenzo Fonda filmed street artist BLU, who let his travels through Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Argentina inspire his unique motion graffiti style.
Another visual treat can be found on this Flickr page, where classic record covers where overworked to resemble the look of vintage Penguin Books.
