Sunday May 24th, 2015: “Ghostly International record label. Started way back in 1999, the label’s found its biggest success through crossover stars like Tycho and Com Truise, but it’s easy to forget how much great dance music has come from Ghostly, especially its house and techno-focused sub-label, Spectral Sound. Movement is a perfect time to showcase this side of the label; in fact, many of the artists still call Detroit or Ann Arbor home. This year Matthew Dear leads a regiment of excellent up-and-coming DJs, with a little variety like Shigeto and Heathered Pearls thrown in. Be sure not to miss Matrixxman and Fort Romeau, two of Ghostly’s rising tech-house stars, who will hold the afternoon down from 2-4 P.M., Ryan Elliott at 9, and of course Matthew Dear, closing the night out with what is sure to be an unforgettable set.” — Mike Waite, http://www.earmilk.com/2015/05/14/movement-detroit-2015-showcases-and-parties-worth-the-trip/
