Listen to 6AM’s Comprehensive Movement Detroit 2016 Playlist

Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 10.52.26 AM

Techno and house and house fans rejoice!

With Movement’s 10th Anniversary just around the corner, 70+ day and after-parties to choose from and a plethora of artist playing the festival across three days and six stages, we decided that it’s time for the music to do the talking.

It’s likely that even the most seasoned of electronic music veteran is familiar with the more than 125 artists playing the festival this year, and it is for that reason that we decided to compile a special Movement Detroit 2016 Artist Playlist on SoundCloud for your use.

We scoured the entire SoundCloud platform for live sets and mixes from each artist playing in Hart Plaza on Memorial Day Weekend. We tried to post the most recent or telling piece of music compilation we could find for each name, in order to give listeners a fairly up-to-date understanding of the artist’s sound and what to expect from them in Detroit.

The result is a 119 track compilation incorporating over 165 hours of music organized in alphabetical order. Please be understanding that not every artist featured on the lineup had recent live sets or mixes available on the SoundCloud platform, while others had none at all.

We hope you enjoy it. Share the article with other friends making their pilgrimage to Detroit – music is love, and sharing is caring!

Oh and don’t forget to enter our contest for 2 GA tickets to the fest!

The BPM Festival has come and gone, and many are left with the fond memories provided by the spectacular location and music from Playa del Carmen. From the vast showcases to all the world renowned artists, there was a musical experience for anyone regardless of ones taste in underground music. Many had the pleasure of journeying to Mexico for BPM to experience this in real time, but the vast majority are left to live vicariously through or wait for the recorded sets to go live online.

With BPM 2016 officially in the books, we’ve compiled a playlist of as many sets from the festival as possible. Have a listen to some of our favorites below, and check out the BPM playlist for over 128 hours of grooves from 80 artists.

Apollonia at Ya’ah Muul

To be honest – there’s no bad setting to witness Apollonia in action, but BPM yields particularly excellent results.

Satoshi Tomiie at Groove Garden Session

An eclectic range of house and techno was the name of the game when Satoshi Tomiie took to the decks at Groove Garden

Kim Ann Foxman at Pets Recordings Showcase

FM tones, 303 basslines, lush chord stabs, and of course plenty of groove – Kim Ann Foxman had it all at the Pets Recordings Showcase

Luciano at Blue Parrot

Experiencing the Cadenza boss at BPM is about authentic as it gets. Although his set at Avalon Hollywood wasn’t half bad either…

Hito at Vatos Locos

Deep tech house in it’s purest form is what Hito provided the dance floor for the iconic Vatos Locos party 

Valentino Kanzyani at Trust

It’s always a treat to see what Kanzyani pulls out of his record bag. BPM was no exception as the Slovenian was in top form at Trust 

Josh Wink b2b Heidi at Knee Deep in Sound Showcase

Between the Ovum head-honcho and Queen of the Jackathon, this is a BPM back-to-back that you’ll want to listen to
