Movement 2015 – Recapitulat-ION

 

main

It’s been a few short weeks and my heart is still racing from Movement Detroit. Held in the Heart of Detroit’s downtown just along the Detroit River, Movement is easily one of the largest events to ever happen in this city. Tens of Thousands pour through the gates of Detroit’s Hart Plaza each of the three days of the festival… And at they end of the night – They all file out.

crowd

Since its inception in 2000, the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF) has evolved into a masterpiece of international presence. Hosting over 100 DJs from around the world, the event – now titled Movement – boasts nearly 100k attendees over three days.

Six major stages are positioned in Hart Plaza, three of which are sponsored by Thump, Beatport and Redbull respectively. The giant Movement Stage is positioned naturally within the plaza’s primary amphitheater and was home to acts like Art Department, Loco Dice, Dogblood, Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, and DJ Snoopadelic (yes, that’s Snoop Dogg). The Beatport stage was positioned just along the river and was home to Catz n Dogz, Soul Clap, Ataxia, Dubfire, Maya Jane Cole, and Nicole Maudober. My personal favorite stage was the Redbull Music Acadamy stage which was home to Method Man, Disclosure, Hudson Mowhawke, Danny Brown, People Under The Stairs, Jets, Ben UFO, Brodinkski and Squarepusher. Oh my gosh… This lineup was simply insane.

Considering Detroit is known around the world as the birthplace of Techno, it’s only right that Thump Magazine (the music channel for Vice Mag) would sponsor the “Made In Detroit” Stage. Each day this stage held space for day long showcases. The Ghostly International Showcase which closed with Matthew Dear was easily one of the highlights of the festival. On the final Day, my mind was blown as the festival drew to a close and I found myself in the presence of Kevin Saunderson & Derrick May performing “Hi-Tech Soul”. Two live production audio engineers with the addition of a live percussionist reminded me of the true essence of music. It was enormous to see live drums played along side an electronic performance of this magnitude.

Beyond the Festival itself, the entire city seemed to open its doors to host after parties, mimosa brunch events and other extracurriculars. We found our way to into the TV Lounge for Soul Clap, City Club for Maceo Plex and Skream, and of course the infamous Old Miami for Seth Troxler’s Need I Say More IX day party. Wow… I don’t think anyone slept all weekend.

mainstage

All around, Movement proved to be far beyond the scope of imagination. I will surely be headed back next year for another round of high potency shenanigans. Thanks for the Motor City…

DETROIT HUSTLES HARDER.
