AN OFFICIAL MOVEMENT FESTIVAL PRE-PARTY
May 24-26 / Hart Plaza – Detroit
www.movement.us

Hot Mass and Humanaut present:
DJ Minx (Women on Wax, Detroit)

We are proud to finally present the woman responsible for multiple dance floor heart attacks over the years.

For two years, Minx engineered and hosted “Deep Space Radio”- an electronic music show on a Detroit’s WGPR radio station. The show was headed by the innovators of techno music: “Magic” Juan Atkins, Kevin “Reese” Saunderson, Eddie Fowlkes, and Derrick May. She played mixes by Kenny “Moodyman” Dixon and Stacy Pullen as well as the show’s helmsmen.

As a resident of world-renowned Club Motor, she also created Women on Wax, a record label and collective of lady DJs from the Metro Detroit area. Wildly successful, her label has served as a vehicle to present many talented artists and producers to the world including Diamondancer, Pirahnahead, and Diviniti.

Recently, Minx partnered with Jerry the Cat to establish Skyloft Productions, where the two work together to produce music for various artists in multiple genres.

Join us as we give a warm, way overdue welcome to Minx for her Pittsburgh debut.

We also welcome VIA honcho LAUREN G back to close us down after Minx.

She’ll be joined by Humanaut resident AARON CLARK on opening dutie

The Black Madonna’s first record, “Exodus” was an anthem to a concentrated pool of Chicago house aficionados, passed from person to person for nearly three years before anyone outside of the city ever heard it. Its champions now range from the esteemed Little White Earbuds blog to fellow Smart Bar resident, Derrick Carter, who debuted “Exodus” to the rest of the world on the mainstage at Movement 2012. The Black Madonna’s catalog of current and upcoming releases/remixes now includes labels such as Classic, Freerange, Home Taping is Killing Music, Argot, Stripped & Chewed and File Under Disco (from the Disco Deviance family).
In December of 2012, along with Derrick Carter, Frankie Knuckles and NYC’s Bunker event, she was announced as one of the new 2013 residents at Chicago’s legendary institution, Smart Bar .

Please help us give a warm welcome to Marea for her Pittsburgh debut.

It’s finally happening! Hot Mass will host it’s first live PAs. And it would be criminal to hand that honor over to anyone other than our two hometown heroes, Shawn Rudiman and Chase Smith. I mean, Shawn built the DJ booth by hand and hung our LED wall for us, for fucks sake. Chase Smith will warm the night up and then hand control of the sound system over to Shawn Rudiman for an epic four hour live set. All improvised and on the fly, as he do.

When one speaks of increasing power, machinery, and industry there comes up a picture of a cold, metallic sort of world in which great factories will drive away the trees, the flowers, the birds, and the green fields. And that then we shall have a world composed of metal machines and human machines. With all of that I do not agree. I think that unless we know more about the machines and their use, unless we better understand the mechanical portion of life, we cannot have the time to enjoy the trees, and the birds, and the flowers, and the green fields.

ORPHX
Since the mid-1990s, Orphx has been creating an innovative and influential synthesis of techno, industrial and electro-acoustic music. Using modular and analog synthesizers, software, location recordings and feedback circuits, they draw upon the darker, psychedelic fringes of electronic dance music, and combine these elements with the experimental aesthetics and themes of early industrial music.

KEVIN REYNOLDS
Kevin’s music draws hints from a wide spectrum of artists. In his music you can hear the steely mechanics of Kraftwerk, the powerful blasts of John Coltrane, the emotive synths of Carl Craig, the social commentary of A Tribe Called Quest, the rawness of Jeff Mills, and lush waves of Sergio Mendes. On record, balance is key to his music: “You must have the light with the dark, day with night, and it’s a natural balance of opposites. ”

SASSMOUTH
Nature gives dancers the feeling of the super-first class satisfaction of Smart Bar where Sassmouth enjoys the Chicago residency. Levitation and heart since 2000. All of Sam’s base are belong to London where she creates high sense originals for Hej Records. Take it easy they will never hurt you on her friendly and supportive online home for the electronic dance music community website naughtybadfun.org. To fast too live, to young too happy. Sassmouth is ecologically minded. This biography will self-destruct in Mother Earth.

REVY
Revy’s sonic focus is driven by hypnotic polyrhythm, unconventional sound palettes, and a relentless pulse. Spontaneity, instinct, and impulsive live experimentalism are key elements realized to formulate his compositions and dj sets, which are often described as unique, weird, alien, and intensely psychedelic. He is also known for founding the netlabel Bleepsequence, which is becoming notorious for its growing library of quality experimental techno at no cost.

RELATIVE Q
When he was five, relative_q killed a lion with his bare hands. Impressed by his ferocity, ares, the god of war, gave him his first synthesizer. He has been making electronic music ever since.

The Bunker returns to Pittsburgh, this time with the other half of it’s residents in tow and joined by Humanaut resident Aaron Clark.

If you’ve ever attended a No Way Back party during Movement weekend in Detroit, or found yourself crawling out of Public Assembly in Brooklyn at 6 in the morning, you know what’s about to hit this town.

Aaron Clark will warm things up at Belvedere’s and then turn it over to Mike Servito to lay down his trademark acid bitch slap on the place.

After that, we’re handing the entirety of Hot Mass over to the one and only Derek Plaslaiko for a 5+ hour shit show of music. Put a fork in yourself, you’re done.

WILL AZADA [Proper Trax / Finale Sessions / Headroom // Knoxville, TN]

Will officially became boss hog in 2011 when he founded Proper Trax, a label heralding floor techno bred out of the southeastern US. Will doesn’t mince words and he doesn’t mince music. Expect nasty floor jacking business from the man who shuts front doors with great fervor.

[PART 1 / BELVEDERE'S / 9pm-2am / $5 after 10pm]

This month we’re proud to welcome the two gents who helm the Baltimore-based More or Less label. Born out of a chance college meeting in Michigan and an even more chance near-simultaneous exodus to Baltimore, the More or Less name has come to represent a widely varied range of influences from Detroit Techno and Baltimore Club to Intelligent Dance Music and German Minimal. Join us as the More or Less crew lays down a night of techno facemelters.

TECHNO BRO [More or Less / DET-BAL-RAL]

Craig Sopo’s live shows are a rare bird in today’s age of laptop jockeys and crossfader-less deejaying. His musical tastes range from 80′s electro and ghetto-tech to acid house and techno and has played alongside many dance music luminaries throughout the Midwest and East Coast. In between crafting genre bending techno and face melting at dj shows, Craig also runs half of the Baltimore More or Less imprint.

His most recent release (March 2012), Brohaus, uncovers a tongue-in-cheek alter ego known only as Techno Bro.

BRNDR [More or Less / BAL]

Little is known about the man behind the beard known as BRNDR, but honestly it’s probably better that way.

TOM SCHREIBER [Rizumu / MADRID / PHL]

Thomas Schreiber brings a playful cleverness, warmth and emotion to the dancefloor. His style of stripped-down funk and rhythm is backdropped by a tapestry of strange and sexy soundscapes.

Thomas began mixing records in 1996 and moved to Philadelphia in 2002 when the landscape there was sparse. As the key founding member of rizumu, Thomas bridged the gap between the already established local collectives and organized undergrounds on a weekly and monthly basis, thereby setting up a foundation around which the growing community would converge.

[PART 1 / BELVEDERE'S / 9pm-2am / $5 after 10pm]

Humanaut & Paxahau join forces to bring the first Official Movement Festival Pre-Party in Pittsburgh to Belvedere’s. We are truly honored to bring one of the most influential techno artists of our time – Mr. Aril Brikha. Your continual support of all the other Out of Orders makes it possible for us to do this for our city for $5 – THANK YOU!

In addition, we’ll be giving away two General Admission passes to the Movement Festival – stay tuned to our Humanaut page for full information on what type of contest we’re going to subject you to in order to win them. ;)

ARIL BRIKHA live [Art of Vengeance / Transmat / Sweden]

In 1998 Aril Brikha reacquainted the world with deep techno soul, as his record Groove La Chord crossed generic boundaries. Is it techno? Is it house? Is it deep house? It’s everything and nothing. It’s simply timeless.

The man needs no introduction. You probably caught him at Out of Order in June of 2012 with Luke Hess, one of the most highly regarded parties we did last year according to feedback from YOU. This time he takes the decks at Hot Mass to drive us into the morning with JASON CUBAN.
