Detroit’s New Dance Show

Vice’s Thumb with a nice article on the New Dance Show:

The New Dance Show, aired from 1988-1995 on Detroit’s WGPR-TV 62. The show featured local kids in the flyest clothes and hairstyles of the time breaking it down to a mix of Detroit techno, ghettotech, Chicago house and music from overseas artists like Kraftwerk and A Guy Called Gerald.

If you are interested in the roots of Detroit Ghetto Tech, be sure to watch these shows on YouTube. One of my favorite mixes is this one.
