The folks over at the Red Bull Music Academy have developed a "Detroit History Hotline" to better acquaint Movement festival goers with the music genre they'll be dancing to this weekend.

Think museum audio-tour — except you're at a rave and have to call in and step away from music to hear what's up.

The hotline will feature Detroit music history stories from legends Derrick May, Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, Robert Hood, Theo Parrish, Erika, DJ Minx, Amp Fiddler, and others.

Just call 313-986-4606 to make your selection. Or  — if you're new school, check the oral stories online.
