This one comes from The Face in May 1988 as Stuart Cosgrove travels to the Motor City to meet and interview Derrik May, Juan Atkins, Blake Baxter and Kevin Saunderson.

Nice one Leo (Zero) Elstob for digging this out. Footage from one of West London’s early balearic parties, Barbarellas in Greenford, with DJs Rocky & Diesel. Some great jacking going on in here.
