After 12 years of annual techno madness, Detroit has gotten pretty darn good at throwing a party. There’s always room for improvement, but here’s the things that got us moving at Movement 2011.
[BEST] Claude Young
Closing out the festival with the longest performance of the entire weekend, Claude Young played a set for the ages. Ranging from jacking house to minimal and more industrial rhythms, Young’s homecoming was a delight for those who knew to gather at the small Made In Detroit stage, which boasted an excellent sound system and an impressive collection of fellow Detroit DJs and producers (BMG, Carlos Soufront, T-1000, Derek Plaslaiko, Patrick Russell, Traxx) gathered to dance to one of their friends and heroes. It’s one thing to watch a DJ enjoy playing tracks, it’s another to see a DJ work up a sweat that rivals those of their audience while mixing with nearly every body part at his disposal.
