Underground Resistance in 1992 Video “Public Tranceport”

House / Techno

Time for a proper throwback to one of the finest examples of Techno’s true underground days. This captivating video was shot over 20 years ago while Detroit’s Underground Resistance was in Vienna, Austria.

Public Tranceport documents a street media event in 1992 featuring the original UR founders Jeff Mills and Mike Banks and Robert Hood MC-ing.

The video was recorded as an “intentional declaration of an underground movement, consisting of video and music artists, that want to reach the people of the street and not the market. …the flashing images of people dancing and excerpts of psychedelic videos are alternated with short messages from the artists. Their view is that the cold war is now replaced by a code war, lead by data-guerrilla’s and media-pirates who want to redefine the logo- and information culture. The sounds of computers and videos are used, resulting in a subversive music soundtrack. As it is the media who determine collective consciousness, they, as artists, are trying to anticipate to that new development.”



Montreal-based DJ and the founder (2007) and 24 Hours of Vinyl (2011).
