The Detroit Sound Project
Established in 2011, a production team made up of native Detroiters set out to raise awareness about Detroit’s most natural resource—music. Through the powerful medium of film, The Detroit Sound Project has become a movement and a social brand that promotes the music of Detroit, its creators, and the influence it has all over the world.
DSP’s first release stars DJs Richie Hawtin and Black Coffee, and documents the DSP team’s journey in electronic music from Detroit to South Africa. Electric Roots: The Detroit Sound Project is currently on a film festival tour and has already made its European premier at the Cannes Court Metrage Short Film Corner in 2014. DPS made its North American debut at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles.
Stay tuned for their upcoming feature length documentary, God Said Give ‘Em Drum Machines, the story of Detroit Techno, coming soon.
