Kyle Hall, Rick Wilhite Featured in Detroit Techno Documentary; Watch It Now
- Words: Ken Taylor
Seems like a bit of a trend lately that European clothing companies are also getting in on the "Detroit: City on the Ropes vs. Detroit: City of Rebirth" documentary-film argument. This latest entry, though—a part of the Real Scenes series put together by Bench and Resident Advisor—is a pretty solid work that looks a little more to the future of Detroit techno than necessarily revisiting its past (of course, it does that a little bit, too—particularly well with footage of the New Dance Show and interviews with its makers). Kyle Hall, Rick Wilhite, Ectomorph's Brendan Gillen, and plenty of others also make appearances, but maybe the best part highlights Mike Huckaby's teaching sessions at Youthville, in which he mentors young kids in the ways of creating electronic music.
