Movement Detroit 2015 Recapitulation

A journey into techno, modern art, and technology in the Hart of Detroit.


This year is definitely stacked as far as talent goes. Paxahau has continued to bring in heavy-weight, more mainstream acts to ensure this event remains one of the top destinations for electronic music fans on the festival circuit. While at the same time still booking the best from the harder, underground techno scene and staying true to Detroit roots and helping promote local talent. There’s even a bit of hip-hop in there this year as well.

Techno pioneer and hometown hero Juan Atkins is celebrating 35 years in the industry with a special performance at Movement under his iconic alias Model 500. To mark this milestone, the legend will also bring longtime collaborators as well as new talent to celebrate 30 years of Metroplex Records – Atkins’ iconic label whose catalogue reaches back to over three decades of futuristic sounds and releases, including No UFO’s, Night Drive and Ocean to Ocean, just to name a few.

In a nod to the festival’s continuous support of local talent, Movement 2015 is collaborating with some of Detroit’s most celebrated names and figures to curate multiple showcases throughout the weekend, including the return of Kevin Saunderson’s highly acclaimed ORIGINS – a celebration of originators, torchbearers and next wave creators of Techno and their cross-generational influence on each other.

Detroit’s native sons Carl Craig and Mad Mike Banks will perform a rare set together as part of Detroit Love – a new concept from Carl Craig, designed to bring together and support the sounds of Detroit and take a little of the Techno brotherhood to clubs and festivals all over the world.

Ann Arbor-based collective Ghostly International present: Ghostly International Day – a look back at the label’s roots and peer into the future with a full day of boundary­-pushing music from their creative community.


Headliners for Movement 2015 have been named as: Richie Hawtin, Snoop Dogg as Dj Snoopadelic, and Dog Blood (Boys Noize + Skrillex).
