    Detroit has quite an extensive history with techno and house music.

Detroit dance music works on the mind and the body in equal measure; this requires true artistry to pull on the heartstrings while moving the ass in rhythm. One of the more recent additions to this great legacy is the deep house artist Alex O. Smith aka Omar-S.
