Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May will each headline an edition of the party series in the coming weeks.
The parties announced so far will focus on the Motor City trio known collectively as the Belleville Three—Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May. If you're after some biographical info on the trio, know that they pretty much invented techno. Atkins is first up this Friday night, headlining the party at Netil House out in E8. As is the case will all three of the announced Detroit Series dates, an interesting additional cast has been put in place, which on Friday includes Simian Mobile Disco playing a DJ set. Dave Congreve, Charles Drakeford and Dollop DJs are also billed.
Venue details of Kevin Saunderson's turn on July 13th are yet to be revealed, but we do know he'll be playing alongside UK techno/electro practitioner Boddika and Factory Floor, who will perform a "live electronics" set. Bradley Zero and Dollop DJs round out the lineup. And on July 27th, Derrick May comes to town (again, the venue is TBC). New UK house duo Waifs & Strays are the other announced guests.
Tickets for all of the upcoming Detroit Series parties are available to purchase via RA Tickets.
