Episode 403 of 811 episodes

Last week, about a hundred DJs and bands played to more than a 100-thousand lovers of electronic dance music. They all came together for one reason: to dance, and that's what they did 24-7, for three days.Now in its thirteenth year, Movement: Detroit's Electronic Music Festival has featured an enormously diverse group of electronic producers and DJs from around the world. Detroit is the birthplace of Techno and after all these years of being more popular nearly everywhere but Detroit, there was a feeling at this year's festival that it's all coming back home. In fact, Detroit's mayor declared it "Detroit Techno Week." Fresh off the plane from Detroit, NPR's Sami Yenigun and U Street Music Hall promotions director Morgan Tepper talk to host Bob Boilen about the music they heard at the festival's parties, the after-parties and the after-after-parties.The BellsArtist: Jeff MillsAlbum: Kat ModaLearn more about this release on Beatport.Deez NutsArtist: Maceo PlexAlbum: Ellum Sleazy Riders CollectionCorinne (Benoit & Sergio Cover)Artist: MetronomyAlbum: English Riviera: Unreleased RemixesTourist Trap (Jamie Jones 'Miss X' Remix)Artist: 11:11Album: Tourist Trap (Jamie Jones 'Miss X' Remix)LTDArtist: Till von SeinAlbum: #LTDSunrise BCNArtist: Audiofly, Matthew Dekay & Lee BurridgeAlbum: All Day I Dream Single
