Terrence Dixon has plans for a crowd-funded techno club in Detroit

The history of techno owes more to the city of Detroit than is often acknowledged, but Terrence Dixon has plans to bring the sound back to the Motor City. Dixon, who formally retired from music in 2014 after a two-decade run that saw him serve as a global spokesman for the city’s musical reign, has announced a GoFundMe initiative that will culminate in the opening of the Minimal Detroit Lounge, a brand new club space for the sacred sound.

Drawing on the lack of spaces available to the sound, Dixon explained: “Today, sadly, Detroit’s own artists have to perform abroad in order to have a career in music, because there is currently not a single club dedicated to this style of electronic music.”

Citing prospective residents including Juan Atkins, Richie Hawtin, DJ Pierre and Jeff Mills, May 23 is scoped for the launch of the heartfelt clubbing venture. The history books of Detroit techno may be due a swift update with a little bit of love from the public.

Get involved and donate to the initiative here.
