Detroit's notorious dance festival enters its 15th year with another definitive list of techno talent within its wares.
Taking place 25 – 27 May inside Hart Plaza once again, the city's resilient live event revealed a long list of acts teasing the genre's perimeters even further last month, names such as A Tribe Called Quest, Andy C and Mala touching on hip-hop, d&b and dubstep alongside purists such as Marcel Dettman, Maetrik and Steve Rachmad. House and its many forms will also be in full force, perhaps more so than ever before, with Art Department, J.Phlip and Tensnake joining Detroit's old-guard heads Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson and Carl Craig.
Just announced, phase two adds further clout, the likes of Audion (live), Gesaffelstein, Moodymann, Nicolas Jaar (live) and Masters At Work shaping up to make this the biggest year year.
