[Festival Review] Four Days In The Life of a Ninja at Movement Music Festival

movement

Detroit’s fabled Movement Electronic Music Festival (formerly DEMF) was a visceral experience to say the least. From the sternum throttling bass kicks of the world’s loudest soundsystems designed exactly for all facets of dance music, the artificial crunch of plastic bottles and beer cans condensing beneath our feet in a warehouse basement at 5:00 a.m., to the general amounts of love from nearly every corner of the industry; we had an engaging and wonderful time. And with new owners Paxahau doing most everything in their ability to ensure a great Memorial Day Weekend, for the most part, the shows went off without a hitch.

Our team arrived late Friday night, and with still at least a couple of hours left in the evening to party before Movement’s official kick off the following afternoon, we headed to Detroit’s gritty warehouse district for an incredibly deep and storied lineup featuring both Moodyman and Theo Parrish taking us all to the Church of House through a vinyl only, eclectic set fusing neo-jazz, classic disco and plenty of contemporary house and techno without well… too much mixing really. It was certainly a throwback night in every sense, even an ode to Paradise Garage maestro Larry Levan style mixing. It was great to get back to our roots, stop being so damn critical, just enjoy a couple of dance music legends and set the stage for our weekend.

Juno Reactor – Tempest (Zeologic Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Tempest (Zeologic Remix)

Serbian producer Zeologic pumps up the dark energy with an official remix of “Tempest” by Juno Reactor. Seven minutes of heart-pounding trance is what makes the fifth remix out of nine that will be on The Golden Sun Remixed. Although this song is due out on June 5th, us ninjas have the opportunity to share it with you early with a premiere.

“Tempest” was the perfect song for Zeologic to remix, as its misty qualities translate well into the style of choice. The underground edge was kept alive, and the Belgrade beatmaker ran with it, pulling off a stunning display of musical savvy. Juno Reactor’s original was done justice, and soon it will be available for you to keep. All of the remixes are up for pre-order for those who would like to secure a copy.

[Trance] Duderstadt – The Orange Theme

The Orange Theme (OUT NOW) [High Contrast Recordings]

Need something to get your heart pumping? Whether you need some energy to party, or finish off studying for finals, “The Orange Theme” should do the trick. The original from the German brothers Duderstadt is an incredible trance production that takes influence from outside styles to spice things up. High Contrast Recordings released this single on May 4th, so it is now available on Beatport.

“The Orange Theme” sounds like it definitely belongs in a movie, and we’d fair to say that is going to happen in the future. It has an iconic sound that takes a dip in the second chorus to a more dark, progressive style until things are brought full circle with the return of the original synth line. Duderstadt hopped on the radar in a big way with this track, so stay tuned for what is to come from these brothers.

[Festival Preview & Playlist] Movement Electronic Music Festival – 5/23-5/25 – Detroit, MI

movement

Once a year, the best and brightest names in Techno, House (and its many iterations) and Disko converge on the city of Detroit for underground dance’s own version of a 3-day Happy Hour, and also one of the most important festivals within dance music’s rich history: the Movement Electronic Music Festival. This year’s lineup continues to set the bar globally for dance tastemakers, and with the full unveiling of their ‘Phase 2’ lineup, it’s clear to see how over the years Movement has been globally recognized for its unique talent curation and programming, showcasing artists from a wide-spectrum of up-and-comers, local luminaries, pioneers and trailblazers, and also the reason so many true dance fans treasure Movement above all other multi-day parties. Featuring some of today’s most notable names in dance music including Disclosure, KiNK (Live), Dixon, Soul Clap, Dog Blood, MK, Hot Since 82, Maya Jane Coles, Ten Walls (Live), Route 94, Tuskegee (Seth Troxler & The Martinez Brothers), Classixx,  Eats Everything, Maceo Plex & GRiZ to some of dance music’s literal genre architects, namely Kerri Chandler, Kevin Saunderson & Derrick May; and some incredibly choice lyricism from the likes of Danny Brown, Method Man, and People Under the Stairs, Movement 2015 looks to be the finest installment in its illustrious history.

We’ll be sending at least one Music Ninja on assignment for this one (expect a full TMN review after Movement’s conclusion) and we can’t wait to join our many friends as well. Tickets for the entire three-day excursion are still available for only $150.00, with single day GA clocking in at $65.00 which you can purchase here. Check out Movement’s latest promo video, featuring Movement Detroit 2015 artist and Techno icon Carl Craig, as he talks about what makes Detroit a destination for those working to become something and waxes poetic about his special connection to Hart Plaza and enjoy our anticipatory and comprehensive playlist below, curated by our crotchety old resident voice of house and techno.
