The 2014 Movement Electronic Music Festival, taking place Memorial Day weekend (May 24-26) inside Detroit’s Hart Plaza, recently announced its phase two lineup featuring, amongst others, Marco Carola, Boys Noize, Maceo Plex; trap music stars and Mad Decent label mates, Baauer, RiFF RAFF, DJ Snake, Flosstradamus; and hip-hop producer, Just Blaze.
Kevin Saunderson will present Origins – a special showcase celebrating the originators, torchbearers and next wave creators of techno and their cross-generational influence on each other. Saunderson will perform alongside an assembled group of artists, including fellow techno pioneers and emerging Detroit talent.
The ninth edition of the annual dance event welcomes Bonobo for his first-ever Movement appearance. The British native has received numerous accolades for the 2012 ‘Black Sands’ as well as his latest project ‘The North Borders’, released in spring of 2013. Fellow Brit, Jamie xx, one-third of indie electronic band The xx, will also make his debut. BBC 6 Music Mix’s newest resident DJ has been quite busy crafting his first solo album to be released later this year.
A number of festival favourites will return this year, including Dirtybird label chief and Detroit native, Claude VonStroke as well as John Digweed. Jimmy Edgar will also make his festival return, as will Daniel Bell – this time under his moniker, DBX - live. For the full line-up and ticket info, check www.Movement.us.
