The freaks come out at night – and also during the day for Movement festival which went down in Detroit Memorial Day weekend.
More than 100,000 attended the massive ode to electronic music and for LongArms and myself it has become a yearly tradition.
We are still busy chopping video up but are excited to release the final package of photos today – Movement Day 3.
The day was packed with talent starting with a housey, bouncey, vocal heavy set from Moon Boots at 2pm. We thought he didn’t play originals but actually there were a few they were just unreleased joints! After his set we got to talk with him about his move to Brooklyn, how Chicago still influences his sound, and why he didn’t go “tech” for his movement set.
Skream played on the Beatport stage at 4:30 and went in for one of the most magical hours of the festival. It seemed like his entire set was a blend of two tracks, where one was a stripped down break that he would go to to create builds and presage drops. I was expecting dubstep or some 2-steppy grimey bassliney stuff but didn’t get it rather the set was made up of house and techno. I had heard stories about his somewhat partying but this appearance was all about the music.
Carl Craig is from Detroit but he sounds like he was born in Berlin. Escort was a top live band at the festival with only Amp Fiddler in contention #Cocaine.
Pete Tong owned the Beatport stage on day 3. His stage presence was enormous. The songs were unfamiliar and yet huge. This was a big name that did not disappoint.
