Party Flavor: M.A.N.D.Y. Gets Physical in Detroit
May only means one thing for dance-minded Metro-Detroiters: Movement Electronic Music Festival. In anticipation for the grand event, Slur Records and Bleu Nightclub hosted a pre-Movement party last weekend with M.A.N.D.Y. headlining the bill.
Starting off the party vibes was Slur label boss YOS alongside Chicago-based house group Mia Wallace. Playing back-to-back, YOS and Mia Wallace fired off dancefloor scorchers that energized the crowd. Each time they introduced a new bassline, it hit you in the gut like a playground bully. And we all liked it.
It had been quite some time since M.A.N.D.Y. had played in the Motor City, so we were all due for a fix of the Get Physical bosses. Unfortunately Patrick couldn’t make it, but Philipp Jung more than made up for the absence. Sans laptop, Philipp displayed exceptional dancefloor intuition as he masterfully crafted a distinctive mix full of rich synths, thick basslines, and memorable harmonies. Bouncing from one sound to another, M.A.N.D.Y. played to a packed room of techno freaks, dancing with much anticipation and excitement for the weeks ahead.
Speaking of which, Movement afterparties are a big part of the fun festivities. Be sure to check out the “Love the D” party, presented by Slur Records, Keepin’ it Deep, and Sampled Detroit and featuring headliners like Maxxi Soundsystem, Gene Farris and Droog (say what?!)
