    Where is House dance in Detroit? I have been going out quite regularly in the city for over 12 years and I have yet to see a strong presence of people that actually know how to dance to House music...

Movement 2015 2Movement Festival in Detroit, Michigan has announced it’s Phase 2 lineup, and the world is buzzing about the news. Highlights include a rare Method Man performance, and a return from the great Squarepusher. Many Detroit artists also fill the lineup, with generations of talent represented… From Kevin Saunderson tagging with Derrick May to Jay Daniel, this lineup is packed with Motor City heat. Shaun Rudiman doing a live set, Carl Craig Featuring Mad Mike Banks, and so many more. It’s looking like a great one, and we can’t wait until May 23rd. Get tickets at Movement.us

Movement 2015 1

The Movement music festival happens May 23-25, 2015 at Hart Plaza in Downtown Detroit. Phase 1 of the lineup has just been released today, and we are excited to share. Movement has been known for it’s meticulously curated lineups of Techno, House, and everything in between. Detroit is always well represented on the lineup, as the birthplace of Techno, and with the city as it’s backdrop, one would be hard pressed to find a more genuine celebration of electronic music. From the early days of DEMF (it’s former name) all the way to the present, this Memorial day weekend festival has become an annual pilgrimage for many seekers of true artistic expression. We have perused Phase 1, and we are very excited about the vibe already being created by the excitement online. It seems that once the first wave of artists are released, people can almost smell the warm air moving into the Motor City, and experience the feeling of sweaty dancing bodies covering the waterfront of the Detroit River, even though it’s 18 degrees at the moment.

Just a few notes about the lineup that we at DetroitTechnoHouse.com are excited about… Marcel Dettmann, and 3 Bens make our excited list (Ben Sims, Ben UFO, and Ben Klock). Also notable, a back to back set of Dubfire and Hot Since 82, something new for those of us who have seen Dubfire a number of times, and this is exciting.  There’s also no shortage of “live” sets from Recondite, Kink, Osborne, Shigeto and more to make our nerd-brains go crazy.  Detroit is surely going to get some more nods as they fill out the lineup, but here we see Derek Plaslaiko, Floorplan (Robert Hood), Kevin Saunderson, Danny Brown, Luke Hess, JTC, Stacey Pullen, Ataxia, Corbin Davis, Gabi, and a few others making the local heads shine a bright smile. Overall it’s a great first flash of the goods for Paxahau and the Movement festival. We can’t wait! Let us know who you are excited to see, or would like on phase 2, in the comments below.
