Music and Innovation that Changed the World

Detroit has re-generated to regain its place as one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the United States.

This is not the only musical innovation the City relates to, Techno or more accurately, Detroit Techno was born out of Electro, Industrial and Chicago House music in the 1980’s right in the heart of Detroit. 

Lakes that Feel Like Oceans
