Carhartt WIP is proud to announce a co-operation with the Berlin based photographer Marie Staggat and her enigmatic 313ONELOVE – an extensive picture love letter to Detroit’s electronic music scene. With more than 170 portraits, her book captures some of the most influential techno and house artists from Motor City, plus a string of profound stories about some selected artists as well as quotes by them on their hometown and its rich musical history. Her images are not just regular portraits of the artists in their living environment. Instead Staggat decided to shoot close-up pictures of each featured DJ, musician and producer, as their hands and ears represent the fundamental “tools” for all their creative output. Detroit has been an inspiration to and definition of music history since the late 1950ees with a wide range of styles from Jazz to soul, funk, rock and hip hop. The latest heavy contribution to the global music culture has been house and techno – two genres that would not exist the way they do without the groundbreaking Detroit based artists that Staggat features in her book.
Furthermore her publication is not only a heartfelt dedication to electronic music made in largest city in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is also a charity project that will support Detroit based children of all ages, who all do share a strong passion and love for music. Featured artists in “313ONELOVE” are Amp Fiddler, Carl Craig, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Dez Andrés, Juan Atkins, Mad Mike Banks, Mike Huckaby, Moodymann (Kenny Dixon Jr.), Anthony Shake Shakir and Robert Hood amongst others.
The book will be available in all Carhartt WIP stores. To celebrate the launch we are happy to announce three unique events. The official launch will take place on the 31/03/2016 in Berlin featuring the Underground Resistance live band Timeline amongst others.
