- Mar 8, 2002In terms of American electronic artists that get respect in Europe, let's
not forget Moby & The Crystal Method are all Americans, not to mention the
founders of Detroit Techno like Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson
and Carl Craig. Their names might not be as familiar as BT, Moby, or Q from
Uberzone, but being a Detroiter all my life I can vouch for the insane
number of Brits, and other Europeans, I met at the Detroit Electronic Music
Festival over the past 2 years.
