[Saw on Detroit Techno Militia, 313TM, and Underground Resistance website,.......]

The top techno producer Juan Atkins has been nominated for a Grammy as a writer in part for the song "Lose Control" by Missy Elliot (you can see the video here : http://www.missy-elliott.com/).

The track is built around a sample from Juan Atkins’ classic 1982 electro track "Clear". Recorded by Atkins and Rick Davis as Cybotron, this track is often considered the first proto-techno track.
