A new short film documenting the origins of techno in Detroit and its boom in Berlin has been released.
How Techno Was Born: From Detroit To Berlin was originally broadcast on German state TV channel Deutsche Welle and was uploaded to YouTube last week.
It focuses on the period directly after the fall of the Berlin Wall in late 1989, and the Detroit originators' influence on the German capital's burgeoning scene. The film also features archive footage of Berlin in the late '80s and early '90s, including the very earliest days of Tresor and other clubs, and vintage interviews with Blake Baxter and Paul van Dyk also feature.
Watch the 19-minute film below.
