Movement: Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival is a staple on the EDM community, specifically to house and techno music which were born in Chicago and Detroit respectively. The Detroit based festival began in 2000 and has over-come management changes as well as other controversy to become a successful 3 day mecca for dance music fans and artists alike. Staying true to the original concept of featuring the progressive and underground dance acts along side the veterans of the craft, Paxahau’s Movement should be a bucket list item that any dance music fan should experience.
DUBBYstep’s weekend in Detroit was short, but packed with amazing music and stories. Arriving Saturday in Detroit, as DEMF is always over Memorial Day weekend running from Saturday to Monday, we attended the Dirtybird Records after party held at the legendary Leland Hotel City Club thanks to label head and long time Detroit local, Claude Vonstroke, pulling some strings. Every act on that lineup (Justin Jay, WORTHY, JPhlip, Eats Everything, Justin Martin, Claude Vonstroke, and Christian Martin in that order) was flawless in getting the crowd built up to the point of dripping sweat yet still jumping out of their shoes until 6 AM! There is no doubt in anyone’s mind who made it to the end that Christian Martin aka Leroy Peppers unveiling his new remix of “Don’t Go” for brother Justin Martin was the highlight of the night. A true “life moment” for the Martin brother’s and die hard Dirtybird fans alike… Justin Martin screams out in the video, “You are witnessing history!!! You are witnessing f***ing history!!!” as his brother concludes playing his “surprise present”.

The Wakarusa festival will kick off this weekend in Ozark, Arkansas, and much to my dismay, I will not be attending. Although offered a free artist pass and all but my flight paid for, my failure to return a text in a timely manner resulted in an expired offer and a really, really salty me…
Now in its 9th year (the fourth year at the present Mulberry Mountain location(Left)), Wakarusa has drawn serious attention from music fans and has found itself in a position to land big name acts from numerous music genres (think Slightly Stoopid – The Avett Brothers – Pretty Lights).
Though not attending, we here at Dubby will be paying close attention to the stories, pictures and video coming out of this years Wakarusa festival, so if you’re into it–stay tuned—we’ll be passing along the good word.

Out now on San Francisco based Dirtybird Records are Justin Martin’s first two singles off his up and coming debut artist album “Ghettos and Gardens”, The two tracks are, ‘Hood Rich,’ and the title track, ‘Ghettos and Gardens.’ Leading the way for Dirtybird to have a massive year is Justin Martin with this full length album; in addition to the Hatched Spring World Tour already banging beautiful bass lines from city to city across the globe. Justin’s productions and DJ sets are commonly a juxtaposition of soft melodic sounds that one would want to listen to on a beach during a sunset immediately dropping into some of the biggest, most grimey, out of this world bass-lines in the game right now.
With a scheduled release date of May 21st, it has already been one of the most anticipated releases of 2012. Check out, https://drip.fm/dirtybird for a monthly membership to get exclusive early dirtybird releases as well as a lot of “exclusive to drip members” releases that never make it to the public.
Instead of providing the title track, “Ghettos and Gardens” I decided to include the second single, “Hood Rich” because it so accurately states, “We gonna hit the spot, we gonna drop the jams, and every booty gonna drop like DAMN!”
deadmau5 is set to officially release his new single ft. Chris James, ‘The Veldt.’ The radio edit will be released on May 6th and The Veldt EP is out on June 25th.
Fans may remember this song being worked on a few weeks ago when deadmau5 was live streaming the production. The Canadian DJ/Producer uploaded the song to his FML Soundcloud page.
This is where Chris James comes in. James added vocals to the track, and deadmau5 was amazed. He contacted James, and had his manager work on setting up the official collaboration. This all happened on live stream.
‘The Veldt’ is inspired by a short, sci-fi story written by Ray Bradbury, who also wrote Fahrenheit 451. deadmau5′ EP will include this track and also a new single that he produced with Cypress Hill.
Check out the stream of ‘The Veldt’ below.
The already exciting lineup for North Coast Music Festival has just added another member of the Swedish House Mafia to its bill. Axwell was confirmed at the midnight revealing of wave one of the line-up and now they have added Steve Angello. Will Sebastian Ingrosso be named next?
