We designed a fake flyer as a tribute to The Belleville Three who are credited with inventing the musical style known as Detroit techno. The group consists of Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson who met at Belleville High School.
The address featured at the bottom is The Music Institute, 1315 Broadway, Detroit. Inspired by Chicago's house clubs, Chez Damier, Alton Miller and George Baker started a club of their own in downtown Detroit, named The Music Institute at 1515 Broadway. The club helped unite a previously scattered scene into an underground "family," where May, Atkins, and Saunderson DJed with fellow pioneers like Eddie "Flashin" Fowlkes and Blake Baxter. It allowed for collaboration, and helped inspire what would become the second wave of Detroit-area techno, which included artists whom the Belleville Three had influenced and mentored.
