Memorial Day weekend in Detroit marks perhaps the best time of the year to see our city shine. With Movement Electronic Music Festival playing host to an expected 100,000 festival goers, the nightlife scene in the city is set for one hell of a weekend. Parties will be raging until the very early hours of the morning in venues all across the city. Standing out as the obvious “must-see” event for the weekend, though, is Nightsneak and RBMA’s Dirtybird Players show, featuring back 2 back sets from Dirtybird front-men Claude Vonstroke vs. Justin Martin, as well as Worthy vs. Leroy Peppers, J. Phlip vs. Kill Frenzy, and Ardalan vs. Justin Jay. This is what we would consider as a “once in a lifetime” chance to catch some of the most fitting tunes of the weekend all under one roof. You can expect to dance, drink, and experience some true dirty Detroit vibes because all of the Players are ready to come out strong come this Saturday. The Dirtybird Players show is an official after party for Movement and will be hosted at the historic and beautiful Fillmore at 2115 Woodward. Tickets are still available here but this event is very likely going to sell out so don’t you sleep on this!

Headlining the night are the good homies Willy Joy, BUKU, Regulators, and Great Dane with local support from Satta Don Dada, Deklo, and Dogfingaz.

Expect tons of Electric Forest themed surprises all night long. The night is hosted at the beautiful river-front Sinbads venue and will be bumping until the wee hours of the morning. You can grab your tickets now and let all of your friends know that the best place to get ready for Movement Electronic Music Festival weekend is with Curated Music on Friday, May 24th for “Trapped In Detroit” with Willy Joy, BUKU, Regulators, Great Dane on the ‘Trail To The Forest’ at Sinbads!
Wouldn’t it be something if an event the size of X Games came to our hometown of Detroit? Well, the dream may be more of a reality now that Detroit is one of four finalists to be the next host for the Summer X Games in 2014, 15′, and 16′ thanks to Kevin Krease & Garret Koehler who took their passion to the internet and gathered a huge following. There couldn’t be a city who needs an event like this more than Detroit and to see our bid go this far is great. It is time now, to step up to the plate and begin supporting the bid like you couldn’t have thought of. Up against Chicago, Charlotte, and Austin, we have a great chance to show the World that not only is our urban playground the perfect venue for the X Games but our community is the perfect demographic for this event. With the support of seemingly every Detroit representative and business owner, the team has been able to build credit for Detroit and will hopefully soon call this city the proud home of the Summer X Games!
Today, the XGamesDetroit crew released this stunning official video documenting a taste of our urban landscape meshed with insane extreme sports. We hope you find this as amazing as we do and we also hope you can join the cause!

Okay, so maybe we are a bit late on this one, but RL Grime is obviously about to have a huge Summer & this remix of Cheif Keef’s hit “Love Sosa” is just a physical example of how hard Mr. Grime is going to roll. We are huge fans of this tune and we already know you are too judging by the 85,000 plays and counting that this tune has racked up on RL Grime’s Soundcloud alone. The remix is huge, and even bigger, it’s a free download. Grab your copy and bump it hard!

Colorado’s newest festival, Arise Music Festival, will take place in Loveland on the Sunrise Ranch over August 14th-18th. The goal here is to bring together the best elements of the Summer camping music festival experience and put them all under one name, ARISE, also known in it’s full form as Activate, Reconnect, Interact, Synchronize, Empower. Something that has become lost in the list of music festivals is the ability to connect with so many like minded individuals all in one environment. ARISE promises not to neglect this amazing aspect. Through five stages of mind blowing music, presentations including workshops, performances from visionary artists, yoga studies, theme camps, the hemp village, the filmmakers feature, and so much more, ARISE is way more than your average festival. We are bugging out over this unique launch event and we hope you can find the same excitement. Tickets are on sale now.
It is always a spectacle to watch a festival grow from the bottom up.

If the prime landscape, three days of camping and music, and partying with 44,999 fellow ragers wasn’t enough, this stacked & diverse lineup is sure to get you clicking the ticket links. So go ahead, read through the lineup, and grab your tickets for Summer Set Music & Camping Festival 2013! We hope to see you there!
It’s hard to bring up electronic music without eventually coming to the name Carnage. The founding father and organic branding genius behind his hit remix series of “Festival Trap” bangers, Carnage is also the man behind the hits that can be found on basically every performing dj’s setlist. Recognized by his fans as an artist who is not afraid to express his creative feelings through not only his music but his social media pages, Carnage has spoken out on issues like producers buying into “hype” to become more relevant and the pressures that genres can put on a producer’s arsenal of tunes. Saying what most in the scene are afraid to say, Carnage is here to stir up the pot.
Even if he were to never speak another word though, Carnage’s tunes speak for themselves. Carnage has a very unique way of getting any environment turned into a massive party. His high-energy packed sets rival Tiesto and SHM as far as giving the audience that… feeling. A producer and performer of just about everything, Carnage has deserving collaborations with artists like A$AP Rocky, Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, Borgore, and the great Kaskade. There isn’t much Carnage hasn’t touched and those left undisturbed will only rest for so long until Carnage comes to bring the rage.
Carnage kicked off his “I’m Fucking Pumped” Tour last week with a special performance in Detroit and will continue on to perform on dozens of stops across the globe including dates in USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Ukraine, and Amsterdam, as well as announced festival appearances at Spring Awakening Music Festival, Sunset Music Festival, and EDC Vegas. With tons of new music coming soon, Carnage is proud to be releasing his upcoming single entitled “Signal” TOMORROW, May 3rd on Spinnin’ Records.
We were fortunate enough to be able to take the time to chat and catch up with Carnage the other day and we wanted to let you all in on our conversation. Check our our exclusive Q&A with Carnage below and make sure to catch Carnage when he comes to a venue near you! LISTEN & DOWNLOAD CURATED MUSIC EXCLUSIVE Q&A WITH CARNAGE ON SOUNDCLOUD:
