Detroit’s Techno Week is in full motion, and the city is finalizing preparation for one of its biggest annual affairs: Movement. Thousands from all over the world are trickling into the genre’s birthplace for a Memorial Day Weekend filled with quality music and equally good energy. Outside the festival, set in Hart Plaza, Detroit’s venues will also play host to the finest house and techno from across the world in celebration of the dance underground.
One particularly special event will take place on Saturday night: the world debut of Marsian, a collaborative moniker between stalwarts Sian and Marc Houle. Together, the two will be putting on a grueling live set that explores the more sinister aspects of their respective techno and house sounds.
Their appearance is just a portion of the rest of the night in store; in fact, Sian has organized an entire showcase around his Octopus imprint. Other guests joining in on the festivities include Carlo Lio, Lee K, JUHEUN, Shelley Johansson, and Michelle Sparks.
Sian has since prepped a high-charged playlist for those curious of what to expect for the night, pumping it full of fresh Marsian, Raito, Wehbba, and more. It’s deep, driving, percussive, and slightly acidicserving as an excellent pregame listen, or one simply to increase excitement around the Saturday night affair.
