Detroit is a challenging place. It is now and always has been. It has never been a place of pristine nature. Everything there is built the hard way, with a lot of heart and passion, blood and tears. This raw, un-tampered nature shows through in the music that comes from Detroit, especially in its electronic music. Paying dues and knowing who came before you have been the cornerstones of respect in the Detroit community for decades. As it was then, it remains today. No hand outs, no free rides, no place for the pretentious. It is from this gritty dust that Motech Records emerged.
