Detroit techno: The Beat Lives On!

Detroit today is bubbling with new producers and DJs.

When Detroit techno made its way from the Motor City in the late ‘80s to overseas locales like London and Berlin, it launched a worldwide phenomenon that quickly grew into a longstanding international techno culture, thanks in part to 1988’s seminal compilation Techno! The New Dance Sound of Detroit. Early ‘90s rave culture soon followed, facilitating techno’s return to the States and securing it a permanent spot in American subculture. Although techno can now be heard in clubs and record stores across the globe, a resilient group of producers back home are holding down the fort and furthering the music’s evolution through a grassroots aesthetic and modern approach to sound.
