Movement 08 - Just Days Away!

Well the boys and I are already really excited about heading out to the 2008 Detroit Electronic Music Festival. You know the one. . . I've been raving about it since last year - as has everyone in our party from Movement 07.

This year the crew has grown. We've got a couple of hotels rooms at the super convenient Leland Hotel and have already purchased our afterparty tickets.

As always, DEMF offers a great line-up of artists. The Madison contingent is gathering on Thursday night to "study" the schedule. Rustin has already weighed in as follows:

Dubfire -- absolutely awesome newer sounding, bass heavy, and very palatable/popular progressive house/techno. One half of Deep Dish. Here's some video: (really dope at about 1:45) http://youtube.com/watch?v=K4dpret3D2I

Deadmau5 -live -- making huge waves this year in electrohouse and does some amazing stuff with one of the mixers I have, so I definitely want to check out his technique up close. See here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=XjRKLHUqYAE

Richie Hawtin -- needs no explanation....

James Zabiela -- does some really awesome stuff with the pioneer effects unit that I want to check out: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ViHJMEonZe0&feature=related

Josh Wink -- fucking legend...

Great chill house
Justin Long Mark Farina Miles Maeda
Drum and Bass
Dieselboy & MC Messinian

If your plans are fluid for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Think about checking it out. At $50 for a 3 day pass at the gate - it's a deal that can't be beat.

Check out our full preview on MMR, including links to coverage from last year.

Cheers! - Mr Bill
