Detroit Techno Militia is a record label and a grass roots DJ/Producer collective dedicated to preserving the legacy of true Detroit electronic music and its proliferation around the world. We believe in what we do, and take pride in contributing to a tradition that has deeply inspired us. Detroit Techno Militia soldiers work to maintain and preserve the significance of techno made in our native city. Detroit Techno Militia was founded by Tom & Angie Linder and has since grown to be one of the most prolific crews in Detroit.
In 2006, Detroit Techno Militia signed a distribution deal with Cratesavers Muzik, jump starting the Detroit Techno Militia record label. We established our label as a Cratesavers sub-label to offer a creative outlet for the talented producers in our crew. All the tracks we release are inspired by the musicians that have influenced us here in Detroit! We continued to release records throught Cratesavers until 2009 when we decided to go 100% independent.
On April 17, 2010, at The Fillmore Detroit, Detroit Techno Militia won the Detroit Music Award in the Electronic/Dance Category: Outstanding Electronic Music Group, following in the footstep of previous winners and Detroit legends: Carl Craig & Amp Fiddler.
On September 3rd, 2011, we launched our own independent digital record label: DTM Digital. The label features exclusive digital content from all of the producers on the label. We will continue to release vinyl records but this will help us reach a broader range of listeners.
Similar to the restoration of historic architecture; we are not tearing down and building anew. Rather using the existing structure as a basis for our own endeavors. Detroit has always had much to offer musically and it is our mission to make it known to the rest of the world for generations to come.
