Abstract:

This paper traces the history of electronic dance music (hereafter EDM) in Detroit. I locate its place within the rave subculture and examine mass media perceptions of the scene to account for possible outcomes of a subculture once it leaves the margins and occupies a space central to popular culture. It also conveys the ways in which music genres such as Detroit Techno are influenced by social and/or political histories. I also argue that while rave culture was in a sense killed by commercialization and popular media coverage, branches of EDM that have developed independently of the rave scene, such as Detroit Techno, continue to thrive. Moreover, my analysis of popular media highlights the impact that popular press coverage can have on a culture, such as the negative drug related coverage of the rave scene or the Detroit Free Press's positive depictions of DEMF. I use Bakhtinian concepts pertaining to the connections between ourselves and others, along with Bakhtin's description of the purposes and offerings of carnival life, to develop a theoretical understanding of the underpinnings of EDM. Finally, I suggest that unlike the space of the rave or carnival, after which everything goes back to normal, the experience of festivals such as the Detroit Electronic Music Festival have the potential to revitalize and build community in Detroit.
