Saturday | May 28



Matthew Dear
(Nick Kassab | Detroit Music Magazine)

Saturday — Key Detroit Artists:

Kyle Hall
Red Bull Music Academy Stage
5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Producer Kyle Hall issued several releases from 2007-2010 — while he was still a teenager — that were embraced by house, techno, and dubstep circles, and he recently put out a triple-LP, From Joy, that has received rave reviews.


Matthew Dear
Thump Stage
5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

For a producer working primarily in the genres of minimal techno and microhouse — two styles known for being diminutive and niche — Matthew Dear’s rise among the ranks of electronic music’s elite has been nothing short of meteoric, perhaps because his work often places more challenging material in song-oriented formats.


Seth Troxler
Movement Main Stage
6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Born in Lake Orion, bred in Detroit, and based in Berlin, producer Seth Troxler delivers dark tech-house and has also opened pop-up restaurants at several dance festivals with a focus on barbecued food and smoked meats.


Carlos Souffront
Opportunity Detroit Stage
7:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m.

Carlos Souffront is a true DJ’s DJ, who is equally entrenched in indie rock, post-punk, experimental music, ambient, rock, house, and techno.


Stacey Pullen
Thump Stage
7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Despite a paucity of output, second wave techno artist Stacey Pullen has become one of Detroit’s most vaunted contemporary musicians, as he has bridged the gap between the classic, soulful sound of the city’s early electronic pioneers and newer developments, such as tribal house, garage, and hardcore techno.


Juan Atkins and Moritz Von Oswald present: Borderland
Movement Main Stage
7:40 p.m. – 8:40 p.m.

What happens when you combine the inventor of techno (Juan Atkins) with one of the major innovators of the genre (Moritz Von Oswald)? You get Borderland, a collaborative act between two titans of electronic music, who recently announced their second LP.


Ectomorph — Live
Opportunity Detroit Stage
8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Although the duo are largely known only to the elite of the American and European underground, Ectomorph are on the cutting edge of a new wave of American dance music artists reconnecting techno to its roots in Motor City funk and soul via electro.


Marc Houle — Live
Beatport Stage
8:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

Based in Berlin but raised in Windsor, Marc Houle is a techno producer affiliated with the labels Minus and Items & Things.


Claude Young
Opportunity Detroit Stage
9:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

The revered Motor City DJ and producer Claude Young went through a long hiatus in the mid-aughts but returned to performing recently, and his music straddles the line between the dance mainstream and the electronic underground.


Carl Craig
Thump Stage
9:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.

The leader of Detroit techno’s second wave is without peer when it comes to artistic accomplishments, influence on dance music, and range of output, having worked with distortion, beatboxing, and samples to create everything from lo-fi electro jams to indelible house anthems over the course of a two-decade-plus career.
