A long plotted booking for one of Humanaut’s most respected producers and live techno acts of the last few years, D’Marc Cantu. This guy has made some of the most beautifully twisted acid tracks we’ve ever put into our ear holes.
This is to be paired with one of PGH’s best live techno acts – Chase Smith – who’s also a huge fan of D’Marc. Add a sprinkle of deep and brooding opener Mike Hanlon, stir in a little of Aaron Clark closing set. Then, bake until all proceeds from the door are able to make it rain 1′s and 5′s all over Paul and Tobin’s landlord, Equitable Gas or whoever these two are going to need to make it rain upon during his recovery.
A delicious techno party cake that you can feel great about eating for days afterwards. Be there. Help out. Dance with us. Thank you.
AN OFFICIAL MOVEMENT FESTIVAL PRE-PARTY
May 24-26 / Hart Plaza – Detroit
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.

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’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. ”
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’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.
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.
