Crossfade Roulette: Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival

Last year I was fortunate to head to Detroit, Michigan to spend Memorial Day weekend reveling in some of the best electronic music I have witnessed at Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival also known as Movement.

The historic Motor City festival provided artists such as: Tiger & Woods, Maya Jane Cole, Maceo Plex, Kevin Saunderson, Todd Terje, and Jeff Mills. In addition to aching legs from dancing so hard, I found myself immersed in a city that has much more than automobiles, and I could not help but take a step back and enjoy the entire ride. I can appreciate the festival  because there is a little bit of everything for everyone, and while its roots derive from techno, the festival now features artists who showcase genres such as deep house, electro, disco and hip hop.

My excitement to return exponentially grew last week as Phase II of the lineup of artists were announced. I felt a rush of nostalgia fall over me, thinking about how much fun my DPC co-author, Tyler, and I had last year. Here are a few tracks from artists that I am most excited to see at this year’s Movement festival.

Zak Khuterotsky, DVS1, has been making a name for himself for the last few years. Besides tracks that span from techno to minimal house as a producer, he also boasts a large wax collection and improvises his sets as he feels out the crowd and environment. I love watching DJs read a crowd and feed off the energy to create an amazing set. The shift of energy that a DJ can produce with one simple segue is an element of a show that I can truly appreciate.

This is an 18+ event. ~~~~ About Jon Dore: Named one of “10 comics to watch” by Variety, Ottawa-born comedian, host and actor Jon Dore is renowned for his offbeat humour and unique bait-and-switch style. Dore is a favourite on the comedy club and festival circuit in Canada and the United States. He has hosted the Just for Laughs Festival Homegrown Comedy Competition on a number of occasions and has enjoyed sold-out runs at the Festival’s Montreal and Toronto locations, at comedy festivals in Halifax, Vancouver, Portland and Washington, DC, and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. From his humble beginnings as the co-host of the cable talk show Daytime Ottawa (Rogers Television) and the irreverent roving reporter on Canadian Idol (CTV), Dore recently starred in the critically acclaimed ABC-TV series How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) opposite Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. Dore is the host of HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell, a series showcasing bold and uncensored comedy from the fastest rising comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, currently shooting its fourth season. He is the star of his own award-winning ‘mockumentary’ series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life’s challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network. Dore starred in the stand-up specials Comedy Central Presents...Jon Dore and Comedy Now! (CTV/The Comedy Network); appeared on a number Comedy Central’s specials including Live At Gotham, CC: Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience and Mash Up; made guest-starring turns on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) and Scare Tactics (Syfy); and was the lead in the CBS pilot My Life As An Experiment. A regular on late night talk shows, Dore has the honor of being the first stand-up to appear on Conan (TBS). Dore's feature film credits include the indie drama Gus opposite Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III) and the comedy Stag, with Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Eva Amurri (Californication), which picked up two awards - Best Ensemble and Excellence in Filmmaking - at the LA Comedy Film Festival. TV Guide Canada called Dore one of the “rising stars of the future” and Toronto weekly NOW Magazine named him Best Male Stand-up. He is the recipient of four Canadian Comedy Awards including: Best Taped Live Performance (2010) for Just for Laughs; Best Performance by a Male in a Television Show (2009) for The Jon Dore Television Show; Best Writing on a Series (2008) for The Jon Dore Television Show; and Best Stand-up Newcomer (2006). He is also a two-time Gemini nominee (2008 & 2009) for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for The Jon Dore Television Show. ~~~ Thanks to our sponsor: More Bentzen Ball shows available at: Stay informed:

Nicolas Jaar is also joining the DEMF line up this May. If there is one thing I can get down to and enjoy, it’s live production with a band which adds a deeper element to the (already) layered track. Jaar’s debut album, “Space is Only Noise,” was released back in 2011 and is still on constant rotation for me. It has an ambient, hip-hop and house feel with guitar riffs and piano laced into it. The album has so much depth that it’s hard to believe he was only 21 when it was released. [Ed. note: His BBC Essential Mix is also..well… essential]

Hot Creations did themselves a huge favor when they signed Miguel Campbell to their label in 2010. While I have known about him for quite some time, it wasn’t until  after hearing his track, “Not That Kind of Girl,” that I was completely smitten with the Leeds producer and wanting more. His debut,”Back in Flight School,” album was released at the end of October and does not disappoint. The album takes the listener on a trip that is sure to keep the dance party going whether you’re in your car or getting ready to go out for a night on the town.

Stacey Pullen, a native of Detroit, is no stranger to the DJ scene playing his first gig at a 1985 high school party. Pullen played on the final day of DEMF last year, and if my memory serves me correctly, it was a long, whiskey and beer fueled day. So, I am happy to see his name on the bill this year so I can fully delve into his set in Detroit. Much like DVS1, Pullen’s sets are not mapped out prior to a gig, and many times Pullen will use tracks he edited that day in his sets.

As usual, thanks for reading/listening! And be sure to give DPC a Like, Follow, Listen, Read

    If you have tired, aching legs but are not sure if you need to see your GP, your pharmacist can be a good source of advice. He or she can talk to you about your symptoms, when they are worse, and can suggest some lifestyle changes or compression stockings or support tights that could help. If they think your condition needs to be checked out, they will advise you to visit your GP.:'”-
