    During his set, I thought of the perfect Planetary Assault Systems slogan: Music to fuck your prison bitch by.

    Doubletree is a nice compromise, I think, it's nice "enough" but isn't that expensive and the suites make it easier to tolerate your friends when some want to party and some want to sleep. Sorry to hear that Dissolute was such a bust on Sunday night. It was exactly what I needed on Sunday morning, and well worth the $15 I spent on a pre-sale to be able to come back through the day. Such good food (I am still thinking about those greens) and cheap drinks, and I liked the space. Unfortunately it seemed like it was empty all day so I wonder if they'll bother doing an event next year.

    Going into this year, I was thinking this would be my last Movement for a while, as I want to try different festivals next year. Of course, I ended up having a lot of fun and being blown away by some of the sets I saw, so it's going to be hard to pass on it next time... tentatively thinking of doing both Movement and Mutek.

    On Friday, I'd planned to stop by the Carl Craig show for a couple of hours, but by the time I got going, it was a little late and figured it could be at capacity, so I just went straight to Perc Trax. Glad I did, as the opening acts (John Templeton especially) were solid. Rrose at the Works was the standout of the night for me. Was a little disappointed with Mike Parker's set, but perhaps just because I'd built it up so much in my mind before the festival. I ended up leaving before Perc went on in order to get some sleep, and then stayed up all night anyway. That's how things go in Detroit, isn't it?

    Saturday's best set was Matador... I have to hand it to my friend Danny for talking me into that one. I'd planned to see Nicole Moudaber but was only mildly interested in her. Matador absolutely killed it... I'm going to have to find a way to see him again soon. Sunday AM's Dissolute party failed to be a suitable replacement for Shit show, but I had fun, had fantastic breakfast & lunch there, and stopped in through the day to see a few sets. It was a little surreal dancing by myself in an empty room to these really good sets... Secrets was my favorite after/day party set of the day, so good that I wish I hadn't left to go see Magda at that time in the fest. Sunday overall turned out to be an unforgettable day... so much good music and so many adventures that I will be thinking about all summer while missing my friends who came to DEMF. I overdid it quite a bit at the fest, and didn't make it out to after parties immediately after the festival... so glad Patrick talked me into going to Droid late rather than skipping it completely, as Silent Servant's set was just what I needed and was one of the better sets of the weekend.

    On Monday, I introduced my siblings to Old Miami and the Need I Say More Party... they were a bit bemused by some of the attendees but seemed to have fun. Since I'd been up for 30 hours, and still needed to spend some more time with my family, I ended up skipping the festival on Monday. There are some things I really wish I'd seen but dancing in the rain seemed like a bad idea when I'm going on another techno adventure next week. Feeling rested and eager to go dancing again, I got to Klockworks while they were still setting up the main room and was able to catch the opening acts. My biggest surprise of the weekend was one of the openers, JGarrett & Jay Zoney who were playing acid on the patio in the rain at 11PM. Great way to kick off the night. My favorite set of the night was Recondite, though the front room was great all weekend.

    Top sets of the weekend:
    #1 Planetary Assault System @ the Underground stage at the festival
    #2 Squarepusher @ Red Bull stage at the festival
    #3 Rrose @ Perc Trax at the Works
    #4 Matador @ Beatport stage at the festival
    #5 Silent Servant @ Droid at The Works
    (Honorable mention to Recondite at Klockworks)

    I'm so very happy with my choices and saw an unbelievable amount of mindblowingly good music, and I'm still totally upset about all the good stuff I missed. This festival is just on another level altogether.

    Here is my summation I put in a different forum. They were all bitching about the fest. and a possible venue change so that's the angle I was responding too. Still very cool to come on this forum and see such energy for the fest from out of state people no less. I have said before it's hard for me to separate work, life, and partying for the whole weekend so I don't go to that much stuff ever. But after 11 years of going to some part of the festival and/or it's after parties this year was one of the top ones for me. Bummed I missed Monday at the underground stage but so it goes when you gotta work the holiday....

    Funny. After all these years of bitching about the crowd and all of its' idiots...I actually really enjoyed this year. Really, really enjoyed it!

    I went majority of both Saturday and Sunday and that was it. No afterparties for me this year. Maybe it's the near crushing stress of having 3 kids under 3 at home but just being down there was very liberating. I guess I could care less about the usual shit I worried about. Did I get close to any of stages? Not really. Did I go through the cattle stampede of a ramp in the underground stage? Only twice. Did I even get within 300 feet of the Electric Forest area? Hell no! Otherwise my brother and I just stayed on the peripheral and took it all in. Each time we went to the Beatport Stage we just snugged in in front of the sound board. Each time we went to the underground stage we snugged in at one of the railings. And it was fine.

    I thought the underground stage had the best lineup for my tastes with Beatport/MID stages tied in a very close second. Some notable performances for me were: tommy four seven, riche Hawtin, Audion, art department, bill Patrick, Dan bell, slam, Nina kraviz, and al ester. But like I said I enjoyed most everything I stopped by for the most part. Wish I could have checked out more of the artisit like adult, Ben klock, and Stacey Pullen.

    I do agree there needs to be a venue change or something. It was very crowded. Somethings going to have to give. How that undergrond stage area hasn't been a scene of trampling is beyond me. Thankfully they put the gate at Beatport stage otherwise that place would have overfilled into the Chicken on a stick place. Belle isle would would be a huge improvement and I hope the consider that over the next few years because hart plaza is becoming very limiting.

    I really love Hart Plaza as a venue despite its problems and would hate to ever see it change, but I do think it's time to start thinking about lowering capacity. I don't think it's quite hit the tipping point yet where it's just too overfilled with too many idiots, but it's moving in that way. I noticed way more stupidity this year than in years past and although most of the crowd was lovely, it only takes a couple of idiots to fuck things up for everyone. The last couple of sets each day were definitely pretty overcrowded, especially on Beatport and the main (the underground got a lot better after Saturday afternoon I thought, although I avoided it most all of Monday because I knew people hiding from the rain would dominate it and I had plenty of other shit I wanted to see). I couldn't get anywhere near Squarepusher and gave up and ended up at Dan Bell, which was perfect.

    If tough to make a real decision as to what my real favourites of the weekend were but in general I pretty much had more fun at any set at either the Beatport stage or the Made In Detroit stage than any other stage. The other stages all kind of sucked in comparison actually. When it came to dancing, groovin, and being fun in general, the crowds at the other stages never came close. Plus the Beatport stage owned sound-wise. Damn that was a powerful soundsystem.

    Yea, it felt much, much more crowded to me this year (I've only gone these past three years), and Saturday especially seemed crowded at every single stage much earlier in the day than I've seen in the past. I also thought the audience it attracted (as a whole) wasn't quite as enjoyable as in previous years, but with those things said, it's not reached the same level as the other festivals I've gone to in terms of negative crowd behavior and overcrowdedness. but it did make me wonder what next year will be like... I'm afraid festivaling and electronic music are just becoming too popular. For some reason I didn't think these things would effect Detroit since the festival has been around for more than a decade. We'll see....

    Pretty sure he's saying, "I remember when Coachella used to book some of those DJs." You're the one grasping for some ulterior meaning.

    What was the venue problem? There were more dubstep kids there this year, but what do you expect? Edm has exploded in popularity and the ticket price is so low. Old ravers are old, and the young kids are starting to figure out what is good.

    The line to get in on saturday was the only time i noticed overcrowding, and we just swung around to the back entrance where there was no line.

    Next year we should all just rent out a hipster flat in the eastern market for like 2g's and fit 20-30 of us in there. Ill book a room at the troubletree this weekend just in case though

    I seem to agree with this, but admittedly I missed out on a lot going at the other stages. These seemed to be the 2 stages I gravitated to the most over the weekend.

    So this was an interesting fest experience for me. I decided to go to this, because I'm not working right now, so I had the time to make it work. I really didn't know many of the artists playing, because I'm kinda an EDM novice. But everyone who I've talked to that has gone has loved it, so I decided to give it a try. Oh... that and the fact that Mr Creep allowed me in on his road-trip/hotel probably sealed the deal too. Thanks again, Jeff.

    So since I'm kinda a novice when it comes to these types of music, I was able for better or worse take the music I was seeing/hearing at face value. I really didn't have any pre-conceived ideas on anyone beside probably Moby, Richie and John Digweed going into this. When I'd spend time with Cara, Heidi, and Patrick, I'd listen to them and tag along with them to sets. If I liked it, I stayed. If not, I walked off and tried something else.

    First off- I loved Hart Plaza. It was a great venue. To me it didn't seem clusterfuckish. I mean this fest is in no-way close to any kind of packed like, say Coachella? The venue is spread out enough where that isn't a problem. The only time I noticed it was that was when I tried going down to the Underground stage for Nina Kravitz and it was so packed I just had to go away. That kinda kept me away from there for the rest of the weekend. I probably missed out on some awesome acts for that decision, but there was so much good music going between the Beatport, Made in Detroit and the Red Bull main stage that I didn't feel the need to venture down to the underground stage much.

    The highlights for me were Masters at Work on Sunday night, pretty much anyone I saw at the Made in Detroit stage on Saturday, Miguel Campbell, and Geroge Fitzgerald and Ellen Allien back-to-back on Monday were a lot of fun too. The Old Miami and Klockworks parties on Monday were both a lot of fun too.

    I was an idiot on Monday in that I wore the worst shoes for all the rain we got. So my feet froze off and I was pretty much done with the fest by 6PM.

    Overall, had a fun time, hung out with a lot of awesome people throughout the weekend. Thanks for putting up with me, giving me suggestions, and especially to Patrick for taking us to the Heidleberg project early Sunday afternoon before the fest. That was really cool and eye-opening. I'm pretty sure I'm in for next year

    Right? I felt bad that I was trashed all the time and didn't really get to hang out with you guys much (at least in the sense of being able to have coherent conversations).

    Really glad to hear you enjoyed it... each year it seems like a lot more friends decide to make the trip, which just makes it all the more enjoyable.

    I was a little on the trashed side 98% of the time too. All is good. Any length in mingling is still mingling. It was nice meeting you, Zach, Pat, Barb, MJA, and Sophia.

    Anyone else start bopping their knee a little bit when they have a phone to their ear as if your phone is a headphone and you are queing a record ? Or every time you are at a counter you get the feeling like you are DJ behind the decks and start bopping a bit?
