Hart Plaza sign DetroitWith Movement 2013 being less than two weeks away, the DetroitTechnoHouse crew is working hard and planning to provide our loyal followers with as much coverage as humanly possible. Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last month, I’m sure you’re already aware of the complete line-up.

Speaking of the line-up, it is definitely looking to be a good year as far as DJ’s go. With oldschool legends like Al Ester, Cajmere, Moodymann, Squarepusher, Masters at Work, and Carl Craig laying down the history lesson, the younger generation has no excuse not to learn and be wowed. Newer artists like Nina Kraviz, Annie Hall, and Shigeto will also be tearing it up and showing the world that good electronic music is here to stay. From Slow House to Deep House to Hard Techno and even Hip-hop, Drum & Bass, and experimental, all the electronic elements seem to be in place for a robust weekend.

If you have been to Movement in previous years, prepare to see some changes. Vitamin water is out as a sponsor and Red Bull has taken the lead as well as taken charge of the main stage. The layout will also be a little different. The music is pretty much the usual thing but has taken a slight shift. It seems that most of the artists are veterans of electronic music and there appears to not be as many of the dubstep/newschool acts as in previous years with the exception of the Electric Forest stage which still looks to be pretty cool. Also there are many Detroit locals including Audion, Buzz Goree, Bruce Bailey, Calico, Dabrye, Mr. Joshooa, Sinistarr, and Terrence Parker to name a few.

All in all, I’m sure this year’s festival will be banging as usual and we will not be disappointed. Stay tuned for more info including our rundown of all the after parties.
