ah, to be a black girl in the 'hood with a love for techno. 'twas a lonely childhood at times, trying to explain to my basketball friends how eifle 65 and alice deejay ended up in my cd player. but maybe if i had been in detroit, i would've found a place -- or at least, some better techno.
i've heard rumblings about detroit's very black, very queer and oh-so-legendary techno scene for years now. and while i'm super excited to go to the city this summer to check it out first-hand, i'm also trying to get my homework in ahead of time. underground resistance is detroit's premier techno label, where the jazz, funk and rock roots of techno are put on full display.
