DEMF 2011 The Conclusion

About to get back on the plane and go home. Sitting in the Kalamazoo Airport, reflection is a must of course. First off I’m just glad my friends are as down with something and love a culture the way they do. It made the festival easier to enjoy, and a sense of security was prevalent indeed.

I enjoyed the whole trip, and the festival was bangin as they say. We spent most of the weekend at the Underground stage, seemed that was were the best Techno was being played. Especially the minimal stuff coming out of there. I want to write more about it all, and I might later. But I’m pretty tired, I’m sure Detroit is as well.

  1. Sunday @ Movement 2011 was definitely the day for current techno. We we’re pretty hyped up about Cio D’or’s set, but the mixes where actually lack-luster. Adam X was doing his thang as Traversable Wormhole. It was good, spacey yet tough industrialized techno – pretty much exactly what I was expecting, and he was into it. We took a break or two to walk the fest, inhale a falfal wrap, and catch up wid some peeps. The true highlights of the night (and festival) were the Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann sets. Klock destroyed it as expected and Marcel had something to prove, in my eyes. His set in collaboration with Radioslave the previous night at the CLR party was a snore, and maybe that was a bad matchup for a tag set. That topped with reports of so-so recent performances left me to doubt literally one of my top, if not top, techno producers live sets (but how could all the cats at Berghain be wrong?). They’re not. Shit is dope, production and live set.
