“I remember meeting a lot of DJs, a lot of musicians, a lot of singers, and it reminded me so much of Detroit. Here’s a city that wasn’t the most appealing to some people visually, but then it was to the people who live there. They’re very proud of their city, very proud of their culture.” — Jon Dixon
