Detroit Techno Documentary

Thanks to Jeff Carvalho for pointing this video out.

This 64 minute film runs through the 1st, 2nd and barely the 3rd wave of techno pioneers all interviewed about how the music evolved at the time. Cool insights into the relations of the original ‘3’, how the scene evolved and how things got a little ugly when success began to take over in Europe. If you remotely love Detroit techno, then you owe it to yourself to get a little more history from the men who wrote the grooves.

Very well done.
