Well we are getting ready for another trip to the Motor City. The Movement: Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival festival is upon is in a few days and being that we could not make it to Miami for this year WMC madness we need a fix. This years line up is jammed packed with electronic dance’s lumunaries, visionaries and more. And for those of us that are far from a major metroplitan area this weekend will be packed with trying to fit a year of clubbing into 3 days. Here is my list of must sees this festival:by
- Visionquest – Part of Detroit’s new school Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtis are a force to reckon and these men from outer space are going to make you groove.
- Kerri Chandler – House Legend and purveyor of soul!
- Daedelus -Throwing chinese stars on the LA beat scene, he’s bound get people bouncing.
- DJ Harvey – Another house favorite bound to have hands up.
- 69 (Carl Craig) – One of Detriot’s finest performing under his 69 guise, prepair for this future music technician look back to and forward through time.
- Sven Vath – Purveyor of fine German techno since it is early stages this Cocoon king will show you why he has kept us dancing all these years.
- Loco Dice – If you missed his perfomance with Luciano a few years ago, I am sorry. Dont miss this one.
- Com Truise – Ghostly’s Jersy boy on the lofi scene, has crafted a sound that is reminscent of 80s movie sound tracks gone green.
- Green Velvet – Speaking of green dont miss his live stylings, you never know whats gonna go down during a Green Velvet set.
- Flying Lotus – Working the world stage with his LA beat dept, this Brainfeeder head and Warp staple will raise roof guarenteed.
- Ricardo Villalobos – This years secret guest lets hope he makes it into US ok because after missing him last year we are ready.
- Space Dimension Controller – This youngin from Belfast will come armed to the teeth from the future for a live set not to be missed.
- Space Time Continuum – A blast from the past apparently Johah Sharp got caught in a time loop and is back to bliss and beats for a new generation.
- Scuba Ramadanman – Ok I am putting this two guys together because they are the measure of everything that is right with dubstep. Make sure you are there when the bass drops.
There are many more to tackle and that doesn’t event include the slew of spectacular after parties. For those of you that can’t make it this year you are in luck Resident Advisor will be broadcasting all five stages live from Noon-Midnight.
Whether your’e heading down Woodard Ave to the festival or just cranking up the laptop this year is bound to be another for the records.
