Details of next year's Detroit edition of Moodymann's Soul Skate party have been revealed.
The bi-annual skating event will return to Moodymann's hometown over Memorial Day weekend next year, taking place over the course of five days. The lineups and venues for 2020's edition of Soul Skate are yet to be announced.
Moodymann launched Soul Skate in Detroit in 2007 creating a place for skate dancers around the US and beyond to meet up and cut around the roller rink to music soundtracked by a number of DJs, sometimes including himself.
A not-for-profit organisation called the Detroit-Berlin-Connection has set up a petition to lobby for clubs to be able to stay open later than 2am in Detroit.
The current law in the city prohibits people from legally dancing in the city between 2am and 7.30am meaning that clubs are forced to open later and many people are forced to rely on unlicensed parties.
Danny Tenaglia and Carl Cox feature on the new Hot Creations EP, 'Don't Turn Your Back', which arrives 27th September.
The release marks Tenaglia's debut for the label, and his solo return to the release schedule after over a decade, with 'Space Dance' dropping in 2008, although two years ago he appeared on Layton Giordani's Drumcode track, 'Live Again'.

Dallas, Texas is an unlikely nerve centre of electro music. The city’s small but tight knit cabal of producers and DJs have been releasing essential underground tracks since the mid ’90s to rival anything made in Detroit or The Hague and, despite indifference from the dance mainstream, several of Dallas’s biggest electro names have acquired world renown.
It’s fair to say that Oliva changed the face of her local scene, and she’s now making her mark around Europe. The Kraków native came up at a time when drum & bass was the predominant sound of the city, but years of her own hard work as a DJ and promoter mean it is now about so much more. Olivia first went to legendary local club Kanty with her older brother and “had to bribe bodyguards” and “sneak in through the fence”.
