Detroit is the birthplace to the electronic music scene, so it is fitting that one of the biggest electronic festivals has taken place here every Memorial Day weekend for the past 10 years. One of the reasons it’s here is our quality local talent. Here are some of Detroit’s hometown premiere DJ’s spinning at Movement 2012, shoulder to shoulder with international acts and watched by thousands of local and intercontinental visitors.
Since Detroit has been the hub of the electronic music and dance scenes for decades, we thought we’d showcase some local acts that will tear up the stage this weekend.
AvA - Beatport Stage
Ava has a very independent style and ferocious mixing, constantly striving to create new sounds and create intimacy to the audience. Her inspiration of the constant underground sounds make her sets an ever changing and intense experience.
Daniel Andres - Made in Detroit Stage
Andres manages four vinyl decks with a marriage to the digital effects era. Bringing countless loops and a myriad of effects, Andres has carved a style all his own. He has pulled influences from the Detroit scene into a steamy and sexy set that gets the crowds really moving.
Carl Craig - Main Stage
What can’t be said about this man’s influence on the electronic music. He is one of those acts that should be on the bucket list for any music fan. Strong sets of deep house you can’t go wrong. After all, he’s a pioneer of the scene and ambassador of Detroit. Live on the main stage. Need more be said?
GRiZ - Underground Stage
He is a young rising star at 21 years old and a big fan of good old vinyl. Sonic sounds and a little Detroit Dubstep for your dancing pleasure. GRiZ has a lot of new ideas and energy that has brought an influx of new ideas to the music scene. Check him out before he hits it big!
Clark Warner - Beatport Stage
The vibe is a tall glass of comforting sonic bliss. Warm thoughtful beat mixing that gets you moving while calming the electric soul. Clark Warner is always a standout, his is the first slot on Monday morning a kind of sonic breakfast to fuel the tank for the rest of the day!
