Orbit (1990-1999) was a magazine that showed Detroiters how cool the place really was years before the New York Times, French filmmakers, or others were telling anyone about the city. Readers will witness the evolution of great performers in music and art starting out here before they became internationally known: Jack White and the White Stripes, Kid Rock, ICP, Electric Six (then, the Wildbunch), His Name is Alive, the Gories, techno innovators like Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins, and more.
