The music is just like Detroit, a complete mistake…

“The music is just like Detroit, a complete mistake. It’s like George Clinton and Kraftwerk are stuck in an elevator with only a sequencer to keep them company,” Derrick May (from liner notes of 1988 compilation Techno! The New Dance Sound of Detroit.)

Detroit has a SOUL side and a ELECTRONIC side

“For me, when you got someone like J Dilla... which his influences are like soul samples and loops, that’s pretty much Motown,” he explains. “And on the other side, it’s electronic with Juan Atkins and Model 500.”
