Legendary Detroit Techno collective, Underground Resistance (UR) will headline the 2014 Movement Electronic Music Festival, taking place Memorial Day weekend (May 24-26) inside Detroit’s Hart Plaza.
“We’re ecstatic to have Underground Resistance performing at the festival,” says Jason Huvaere, Movement festival director. “This will be a rare opportunity for fans to experience a profound group of Detroit artists that have been instrumental in revolutionizing dance music culture since the late 1980s,” he adds.
UR founder, Mike “Mad Mike” Banks, keyboardist Jon DIXON, saxophonist DeSean Jones and DJ Mark Flash will perform Timeline – a musical chain running from the past through the present and into the future with an emphasis on techno and jazz elements – what is known as “hi-tech jazz”. “What you will be seeing on stage is the future of Detroit,” says Banks. “Jon Dixon and DeSean Jones have taken UR’s hi-tech jazz sound to a new level. This is the future of jazz!” he adds.
