May 24, 2013 - 7:43 pm
This one is for the bass heads. You need to get turnt-up this weekend at Movement’s New Electric Forest stage. Here’s 6 acts that will help the process along. →
The Dutch trio brings hard hitting drum and bass and dubstep masterfully mixed with elements of house music to Detroit to rock the Electric Forest Stage at 9:30 pm on Saturday. The trio has cultivated a sound distinctly their own and pushes the envelope by crossing genre lines. Noisia is an act not to be missed.
2. Paper Diamond
Alex B, better known as Paper Diamond is bringing his unique brand of bass music to Detroit's Hart Plaza where he will be sure to get the crowd tuned in and turnt up. Playing on Monday at 7:20 at the Electric Forest Stage he is sure to impress the crowd with some hip-hop inspired trap and jazzy funk. The question is will you run the trap? Or let the trap run you?
PLM Label O.G. Gramatik is back in Detroit to rock Motor City with his hypnotizing funky trip-hop Monday at Movement Electronic Music Festival. Bringing some of the most unique use of sampling in the industry and coming off his very successful collaboration, Grizmatik, with fellow producer GriZ this is one act you will not want to miss. 8:30 pm Electric Forest Stage, be ready to groove.
GRiZ will be returning to his home city of Detroit to play Movement Festival at 9:40 pm on the Electric Forest stage this Monday, May 27th. The last time Griz was in Detroit, he sold out the St. Andrew Hall, a 2-floor venue including The Shelter’s lower room with a capacity of 1200+. He also played Movement last year, but on the small Underground Stage at 3pm, which was packed to the brim with fans.
5. Big Gigantic
Big G as they are affectionately known is one of the few acts that successfully blends live performance with the energetic bass of electronic music. Closing out Movement at 11:00pm on Monday at the Electric Forest Stage, Big G is a show you have to catch because there’s nothing like it out there. The improvisational nature of their show guarantees a unique experience each time and while you might leave the festival after their performance, the performance won't be leaving you.
6. Break Science
This Brooklyn based duo brings some hip-hop infused bass music with an undeniable East Coast sound, the only thing broken about Break Science is probably their studio monitors after a recording session. Catch them live at the Electric Forest Stage Monday at 6:15 pm.
