Derrick May, Francois K and more will play on Halloween in Italy.
The event, which was started by the cultural association Suoni e Colori and Derrick May, acts as the Italian arm of Detroit's celebrated Movement festival. As a result, the lineup is a solid mix between the best that America has to offer, along with some strong Italian support as well. Headlining things will be May and Francois K performing as Cosmic Twins. The duo first toured together under the moniker in 2002 and promise that this night's set will be "experimental…ranging from traditional sounds to futuristic productions." In the "Deep Groovy Chunky" room will be Pimp Jackson-enabler Mr Loco Dice, backed up by Dennis Ferrer and headlining the "House" room will be Francois co-conspirators Joe Claussell and Beat Pharmacy, AKA Brendon Moeller. Providing support will be Italian DJs Krakatoa and Tropez, as well as Aussie Tini.
As if that weren't enough, two days before the music kicks off, an opening ceremony will take place at the National Cinema Museum of Turin in which an exclusive screening of Hi-Tek-Soul, a film that goes a long way towards explaining the impact of Detroit techno on the world, will be shown.
