Fuse-In May 28-30 Detroit, MI
"The name's not entirely clear (Fuse-In? MusicLogical? Fuse-In Detroit's Electronic Movement?), and the announcement comes almost too late to book flights, but by golly it's on — and across the continent, techno fans are promising to be there with bells on. Led by Kevin Saunderson, the latest incarnation of Detroit's annual electronic-music festival boasts a lineup praised by some as the best in the affair's six-year history. While Fuse-In stays true to the city's legacy — featuring Midwest heroes like Underground Resistance, Model 500, Carl Craig, Kenny Larkin, Moodymann, Green Velvet, and Octave One — it's doing more this time to reach out to allied communities than perhaps any of its previous incarnations. International members of the Detroit diaspora represent from across Europe and beyond: Fabrice Lig, Aril Brikha, Legowelt, Mat 101, Marco Passarani, and Ken Ishii are all booked. Paxahau and MUTEK keep the new school in session, with sets from the likes of Luciano, Jeff Samuel, Mike Shannon, and Akufen; and Berlin puts its stamp on the bill with appearances from Apparat, Jan Jelinek, Sten, and more. With an official lineup this good, we can't wait to see what the afterparties are like. (PS) "
