Recht interessante Doku der deutschen Welle, die sich der Entstehung des Technos im Detroit der 1980er Jahre widmet.
The real backstory of techno begins early 1980s in Detroit, a city struggling with industrial decline and social challenges. In this episode of Arts Unveiled, we take a look back at the birth of techno as a response to these hardships, as visionary artists like Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson fuse funk, electro, and synth-pop with futuristic visions from science fiction.
The influence of European electronic music, particularly the iconic Kraftwerk, on the Detroit pioneers, who crafted a unique sound would revolutionize the music scene. Black and queer communities played a pivotal role in the genesis of techno, with their contributions building the genre and culture as we know it.
We will take you to Berlin, where techno found its second home after the fall of the Wall in 1989 and to the electrifying atmosphere of dark basement clubs and run-down buildings where the hard and fast beats of techno first captivated audiences. From the Love Parade, a legendary music festival that took techno to the streets, drawing millions of ravers from around the world, to the legendary clubs of Berlin, such as Tresor and Berghain, where techno thrives with no curfew.
