Green Velvet, Laurent Garnier and Derrick May are also amongst the first names billed for this year's festival.
Italy's—and indeed Europe's—leg of the famous Detroit three-dayer, Movement, returns for its sixth edition. Falling back upon the formula of a single day main event, Movement Torino 2011 will be suitably warmed up by a series of pre-parties happening throughout the city in the run up to Monday 31st. Space Dimension Controller and Kyle Hall will be opening the festivities on Thursday 27th with their spacey disco and soul-soaked house and techno styles. The other pre-party mentioned so far is a Circoloco event happening on the Saturday, with Stacey Pullen, DJ W!ld, Tania Vulcano and Davide Squillace all billed.
As for the festival proper, due to take place once more in the impressive Pala Olimpico stadium, veterans Carl Craig and Derrick May will be solidly representing Detroit, with May being one of the DEMF's original founders. Craig will be using the outing to perform live as 69, the alias he used between 1991 and 1995, culminating in the The Sound Of Music LP for R&S. Laurent Garnier is the other live act mentioned, performing as his L.S.B. project with Benjamin Rippert and Stephane "Scan X" Dri. Damian Lazarus, John Digweed, Steffi, Cassy, Art Department and Green Velvet complete this first round of announcements, with more yet to be released.
