As a lover of music and a Michigander I have become keen to the pivotal role of Detroit in the world’s soundscape. Living in Brooklyn now I see the influence of my birthplace on global dance culture, particularly in the work of Seth Troxler, Mike Servito, and the Ghostly camp. This May Paxahau awarded me my first major music festival press pass and I ventured to the Motor City with my dear friend Danny “LongArms.” Movement is my yearly pilgrimage to the birthplace of Techno and is a truly unique festival experience – This video collection of my experiences reflects the eclectic and refined tastes of Detroiters and the festival organizers.
Footnote: we absolutely went to after parties and recognize their importance, however I made a decision to focus on the FESTIVAL for my photo, video, and interviews, and take time to enjoy at Soul Skate and Old Miami. Also not included in the video was an incredible tour Saturday AM with the Detroit Sound Conservancy to the Grande Ballroom, Motown HQ. Find out more about their work and support their efforts to preserve the indigenous sounds of Detroit. See you in Detroit in 2015!
