REAL SCENES: DETROIT

THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT TIMES ARE TOUGH RIGHT NOW IN THE HEARTLAND AND DETROIT HAS BEEN HIT HARD, BUT THE MOTOR CITY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MUSIC TOWN AND DESPITE SETBACKS CONTINUES TO INNOVATE. FOR THE SECOND INSTALLMENT IN THEIR ALREADY EXCELLENT “REAL SCENES” SERIES, THE WEBSITE RESIDENT ADVISOR TOOK A LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN THE DETROIT ELECTRONIC MUSIC SCENE.

FILLED WITH A LOT OF IMPORTANT INTERVIEWS AND INSPIRING LANDSCAPE SHOTS, THIS THING IS A BOTH A GOOD PARTIAL HISTORY AND STRONG DOCUMENT OF THE PRESENT. SO MUCH AMAZING AMERICAN MUSIC HAS BEEN MADE IN DETROIT AND I’M GLAD TO SEE THAT DESPITE HARD TIMES THERE ARE KIDS KEEPING THAT TRADITION ALIVE. THE MUSIC WORK THAT MIKE HUCKABY IS DOING AT YOUTHVILLE IS INSPIRING TO SAY THE LEAST. MUSIC IS A FORCE THAT CAN CUT THROUGH THE DARKNESS, THINGS ARE FUCKED UP BUT IN PLACES LIKE DETROIT THERE IS A STRONG SPIRIT THAT REFUSES TO DIE.
