Here’s a couple of promo vids for the DEMF to get you in the mood. The first one is Collabs3000 (Speedy J & Chris Leibing) and the second Richie Hawtin, taken at last year’s event. We didn’t know Collabs3000 was actually Stephan Bodzin! Still, looking like a lot of fun.
The DEMF will be held in Detroit on May 26-28, 2007.
