We can take solace in the fact a long and arduous January is over, but the real nocturnal work starts here, as the following goes to show.
Adam Beyer, Eris Drew & Octo Octa, and ANNA are among the names locked for Sunday at Movement Detroit.

Elsewhere, b2bs are billed from Kevin Saunderson and son, Dantiez, Magda and Mike Servito, and Chicago house dons DJ Sneak and Derrick Carter. Local heavyweights Detroit Techno Militia, Gettoblaster and Scan 7 are also on the line-up.
Bristol’s Pressure Dome label will kick off 2020 with a new split EP from Joe Craven and Human Resources, set for release on 7th February.
The label’s third release finds local producer Human Resources and Dialogue party starter Joe Craven offering up two weighty UK techno cuts each, heavy on the bass with flourishes of breakbeat and dub woven throughout.
Crave’s ‘Hurt Potential’ opens the EP with a buoyant, but subtle, rhythm, making for a perfect warm-up to stoke the dancefloor into life early in the night. Check it out below.
Bogotá club Baum, one of the city's most renowned, has closed its doors for good, bowing out after some seven years in the Colombian capital with a 36-hour party last weekend.
