Join Jennifer Washington, Kristian Hill, and David Granison Jr. for a reading of “God Said Give ‘Em Drum Machines: The Book” at the DPL.

Members of the God Said Give ‘Em Drum Machines production team Jennifer Washington, Kristian Hill, and David Grandison are excited to share a reading from their upcoming book: GSGEDM: The Book for the first time ever.

Book Synopsis:

At the heart of Techno music is a pulse that has been beating since the 1980s. For Detroit natives Jennifer Washington and Kristian R. Hill, this pulse became a lifeline as their business and creative worlds aligned after a chance meeting in 2010. They joined filmmaking forces and consequently brought together a star-studded team who took on big money decisions and unexpected setbacks — all to illuminate the Black origins of this hi-tech Detroit sound that inspires electronic dance music today. ‘GSGEDM: The Book’ chronicles a personal story of how the globetrotting, camera-toting Washington Hill Pictures team made the God Said Give ’Em Drum Machines documentary over a 12-year timeline, and put Detroit on the map as an official music capital of the world.
