The Spirit of Detroit award has been bestowed upon a number of seminal figures including Carl Craig, Jeff Mills, the Belleville Three, Underground Resistance and more.
The honorable piece acknowledges and commemorates those who have put forth "outstanding achievement or service to the citizens of Detroit".
As a city that deeply respects and cherishes its music culture, it's no surprise the honorees are those who have contributed heavily towards its rich techno scene.
Others awarded were Submerge, Movement Festival, Eddie Fowlkes and Kelli Hand.
The spirit of Detroit will be in full force this weekend for the 10th anniversary of Movement Festival.
