Movement 2012 Detroit- Day 2 Review

After an awesome Saturday of musical delights, the momentum carried right on into Sunday for another beautiful day in Detroit. The music was on point once again, and the energy and vibe from the crowd this year has been totally amazing.

I made sure to get myself there on time to catch Tiger and Woods, and I was not disappointed. I have been blasting the shit out of these guys for the last year, and they are up on my list of the dopest producers in the edit/nu-disco/house genre right now. They brought the heat to the Redbull stage, and got the afternoon disco crowd on their feet.

After a visit to the Hart Plaza biergarten (totally awesome to be able to get a craft beer at the festival this year) we made sure to check out Maceo Plex at the Beatport stage.  As always, Beatport was jumping as hell and Maceo Plex was tearing up the deep house hotness. Really glad I caught this set! Beatport was kind of my afternoon hangout, and I had to make sure to stick around for Ian Pooleys dose of techno insanity that carried us into the evening.



Next up, we headed over to the Main Stage to watch Loco Dice kill it. He has come to be an absolute crowd favorite every year, and fir one main reason: dude knows how to bring a proper set.  This year was awesome as always, but the energy kind of died with the end of Loco Dices’ set. Don’t get me wrong: Public Enemy is one the most amazing, talented groups in hip-hop history, but their show was tainted by a reality show jaded frontman who really did nothing but make a lot of shameless plugs and totally killed the vibe. It was afterparty time.

After a lot of bad noise and wasted money at a party that shall remain nameless, our crew ended up at 45 Grand River for Detroit vs London. All I can say is wow. Great vibes, banging music, and lots of good friends in a venue that was old school as they come: proper.

  1. I was very disappointed by Public Enemy’s set. They seemed like old rockers trying to cling to past glory. It sort of reminded me of going to listen to the Rolling Stones with my parents. Let me sort of feeling depressed…

  2. I agree with you totally. They really stood out from the rest as far their suckyness and shameless plugs.
