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


All photos copyright and courtesy of Matthew Reyer & Black Tuesday

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.

[AMAZING] Dog Blood – Middle Finger EP

In case you haven’t been blessed yet, Skrillex and Boys Noize joined forces and created a group called Dog Blood. If we’re lucky they will be run for president and slowly take over the world. But until then we have “Middle Finger” and “Next Order”. These two tracks were released on iTunes two days ago. On Sunday I saw Skrillex close out Outside Lands in San Francisco and when he dropped “Next Order,” words cannot describe how hectic it got. This track is just plain insanity, I was at a loss for words hearing it live, and it hits at all the right times, TURN UP THE BASS FOR THIS ONE. On the teaser that Skrillex posted on his Facebook about a week ago, he mentioned this as being “Acid Terror”. Others have gone as far to describe it as “Break-Acid-Tech-Noise”. Regardless what we call it, this collab is one of the biggest to hit the “EDM” scene in a long time. I like “Middle Finger” a little bit more, as it starts off with some glitch-acid-infused breaks and bleeps. Then we get some classic Skrillex vocal editing building into brain-scrambling filth that never lets up. Cheers.
