As these issues and others surround electronic music in Detroit, the pulse continues on. Linda G.
(known for bringing many world-renowned artists to Motor Detroit
) and BTM Productions (responsible for numerous underground parties including those with Eminem and Wu-Tang Clan) have joined forces to use the area under the Ambassador Bridge as a venue for upcoming events. Many have fond memories of the legendary indoor/outdoor space with views of the Detroit River, Windsor and the downtown Detroit skyline. The partners have secured permits to ensure legal and safe parties, which will begin Friday, Aug. 8 with the hard house sounds of Frankie Bones
, the trance of Dr. Trance
, the disco house of Terrence Parker
and an additional house set from Manic
. Upcoming events include a CD release party for Richard “Humpty” Vission’s Shut the F*** Up and Dance
and a performance from Darius. Call the BTM Productions info line at 248-788-7000 or Linda G.’s info line at 313-438-4146 for more information.
