Movement Music Festival in Detroit starts today and runs through Monday. In addition to the festival the city will be alive with official after parties. Click Here For After Parties
The festival takes place in Detroit MI, the birthplace of Techno. The festival grounds are in Hart Plaza of downtown Detroit along the banks of the Detroit River, with a view of Windsor, CA on the other side.
Here are some artists to listen to before you head over!
Prepare to step into a world made of thick drum kits, deep melodic bass lines, and beautiful futuristic melodies. These audio landscapes have been carefully crafted by Denver based producer, Templo, who is known for his unique blend of house, downtempo, hip-hop, funk, and dub.
Templo’s latest ep, Sunrise Vol. II, is compiled of 5 all original tracks that have an uplifting and refreshing vibe. The beats are very intricate and quite fast at points. These complex rhythms are then complimented by atmospheric synths and pads that bring a water-like coolness to each song.
I recently heard someone say that a “Fully Writable Album” is an album you can play from start to finish in one sitting without having to skip a single beat. I’d have to say that Sunrise Vol. II would definitely qualify as a “Full Writable EP”.
Make sure you don’t miss Templo at Sonic Bloom 2015! He’s no stranger to the stage, and with a handful of releases and festival performances under his belt, Templo will have an impressive set that will surely be a highlight of the festival.
To Celebrate the release of Octave One’s upcoming album ‘Burn It Down’ the Detroit duo will be holding an exclusive launch party during this months Movement Festival. Taking place at local record store Spectacles in their Native home of Detroit the intimate event will be a rare opportunity to listen to the anticipated new album along with a special live performance from the brothers.

Sonic Bloom is bringing one of Colorado’s own (and one of our personal favorites) to their incredible festival this year. Cualli has been steadily releasing music since 2010, and with his recent arrival back home from a three month excursion in Costa Rica, he will be bringing a fresh new energy and strictly positive vibes to Humming Bird Ranch.
From his engaging live performances featuring himself, a computer, and several live instruments… To his insanely creative production that feature recordings from his trips around the world, live instrumentation, and software production… Cualli has proven time and time again that music is not only his passion, but his way of speaking to the people and Mother Earth.
“To make a change in the world we must make a change in ourselves. To heal the soul of the Earth we must heal the souls in ourselves. We are one with the Earth. We are one with the cosmos. I give thanks for the opportunity to play a part in this time here on Earth. I give thanks for the opportunity to connect through music. I give thanks for life.” – Cualli
Since my first introduction to Cualli back in 2012, at Envision, I have had the pleasure of watching his music spread throughout the conscious music network of the world in a truly loving way. I’m excited for more projects to come from this talented Colorado native and really stoked for his performance at Sonic Bloom 2015!

Heading Sub Soldiers Records, Caspa and his squad of producers are constantly creating some of the heaviest club music around.

Whether backed by his own production, or that of his peers such Russ Liquid, Aabo, The Polish Ambassador, and Bassnectar (just to name a few), Lafa consistantly creates well crafted, original songs, that are a great reflection of his persona.
