High Tech Soul: The Creation of Techno Music

HIGH TECH SOUL is the first documentary to tackle the deep roots of techno music alongside the cultural history of Detroit, its birthplace. From the race riots of 1967 to the underground party scene of the late 1980s, Detroit’s economic downturn didn’t stop the invention of a new kind of music that brought international attention to its producers and their hometown.

    I love how black people produced this film and try to make it look like they invented and nurtured techno music.  propaganda!  Outrageous disgrace.

      Where in the movie does it imply this? These actually are originators of the genre called ‘techno’ — taking influences from varied acts such as german electro group Kraftwerk and developing into as a more ‘urban’ sound.

         Techno later became a catch-all term for electronic dance music– hence your confusion — its not implying that these individuals created electronic music, that would be false.
