Directed by Gary Bredow
From the riots of 1967 to the underground party scene of the late 80’s, High Tech Soul takes you on a walk around the globe and back to one of the richest and most challenging cities in the world. The film explains why Techno with it’s driving beats, abrasive tones, and resonating bass lines could not have come from anywhere else other than Detroit. Techno is much like the city itself, deprived and emotional yet continuing to set trends around the world, touching lives no one could have ever imagined.
This film is a walk though time with the individuals who paved the road for Techno music around the world. Featuring Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, as well as other innovators that continue to take the music to new levels today. Filmmakers Gary Bredow, Jason Simon, Marta Tomkiw, and Roger Homrich; known collectively as Glu-Studios, explore the relationships and personal struggles of the individuals who created this global phenomenon.
