How Prince’s love affair with Detroit helped fuel the birth of techno (blog.thecurrent.org)

Posting this interesting piece on the anniversary of the star's untimely death last. Even though he was from Minneapolis, Detroit became a second home for Prince, with a lot of his early work being championed in the city and his infuence having a lasting effect on the techno pioneers of the 80s. The artist even chose to celebrate his 28th birthday with a show in the city, check it here. Moodyman even turned his home into a Prince museum!!
