A year ago, Electric Roots went to South Africa to see what they could capture. Now it’s time to WORLD PREMIERE their latest work from the rainbow nation - ELECTRIC ROOTS: THE DETROIT SOUND PROJECT that you can get a sneak preview of further along in the article.
Since its commencement two years ago, the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival has been attracting massive crowds from all corners of the world and some of the most influential DJ's in the business for three days of electronic music that must be seen to be believed. This particular look into the world of South Africa's amazing retelling of Techno music via its Detroit birthplace are sure to leave you wanting more, sandwiched between the amazing landscapes and views of Cape Town and Johannesburg. Relive all the moments again as if you're one of the attendees yourself and get lost in 'The Rainbow Nation' of love and great electronic music.
In an extensive but concise exploration of the calibre of music widely available in other areas of the world, Electric Roots succeeds in pulling you in and detailing another side of house music and 'soulful electronic' that can't be easily sniffed out in our sometimes stale and boxy mainstream atmosphere. With unforgettable sets by Techno's latest and greatest, and exclusive access to the insight of these genre-transforming connoisseurs of Electro at the CTEMF, Electric Roots profiles an otherwise unseen look into this inspirational amped-up world of bass and drum beats.
