Summary
From the race riots of 1967 to the underground party scene of the late 1980's, this film is the first documentary to tackle the deep roots of techno music and its relation to the cultural history of Detroit. Artists like Richie Hawtin, Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, Eddie Fowlkes, and a host of others explain why techno, with its abrasive tones and resonating basslines, could not have come from anywhere but Detroit. Includes in-depth interviews with the world's best exponents of techno music.
