Motor City Destroyed

Detroit, Michigan is the home of many legendary techno/house artists like Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson as well as Richie Hawtin and Carl Graig. Therefore I had pretty high expectations for a Saturday night in Detroit. However things seemed challenging when there was no signs of any legitimate party/event at 00AM (only 2 hours before most bars/clubs were legally set to close) and ResidentAdvisor plus random detroit techno forums showed no events for the night. However our party crew of two people finally found a place that actually had a DJ just before 2AM and luckily that specific DJ was a cool dude who was happy to show us some real Detroit after hours.

Big thanks to Todd and Michael for showing us some really interesting places. For more footage about Detroit Techno and Motor City check out the ResidentAdvisor Real Scenes: Detroit documentary below:
