Detroit is a city rich in music culture, from Blues, Jazz, Motown, Punk, Hip-Hop, Pop and, of course, Techno. Recognized as one of the greatest in the world for its musical output, it is also a city whose artists have so much love and pride for their heritage. Amidst the city’s problems over the years, the inspiration remains strong and many of the artists from Detroit are innovators of electronic music.

Creating landscapes through sound, music from originators Jeff Mills, Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Carl Craig, Moodymann, Underground Resistance, Stacey Pullen, Kenny Larkin, Robert Hood, Recloose, Octave One and many more have influenced people the world over, and without them, the music of today would not be what it is. They have also paved the way for newer artists like Seth Troxler, Kyle Hall, Lee Curtiss, Shaun Reeves, Ryan Crosson, Jimmy Edgar and Jay Daniel; each artist uniquely taking the melodic and unforgettable sounds of Detroit in to the future.

‘Detroit Love’ is a new concept from Carl Craig, designed to bring together and support the sounds of Detroit and take a little of the techno brotherhood to clubs and festivals the world over.
