Carl Craig returns to MotorCity Wine once again during Memorial Weekend and he's bringing a couple friends with him. 4 time Grammy winner Jimmy Douglass AKA The Senator has engineered or produced for some of the most influential bands of the last 4 decades, from his time at Atlantic records in the 70's engineeeing for Aretha Franklin, Hall & Oates, Roberta Flack, Donny Hathaway, Foreigner, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC to name a few. In the 80's it was the Rolling Stones, Roxy Music and Genesis, and later on Duran Duran, Kanye West, Sean Paul, Al Green, John legend, Bjork, Snoop Dog, Aaliya, Missy Elliot, Jay Z and many more. Jimmy will be stepping away from the mixing console for this one and will be dropping some musical knowledge on us. Rounding out the night is truly a Detroit original and an inspiration to many of the biggest DJs today, Mr Al Ester. Al has been doing the thing since his 1st residency in 1983 at the legendary Cheeks club in Detroit. $15 advance/ $20 door 10pm-2:30am | 21+
Every May, the dance music community unites in Detroit. House Gallery has been closing it out for years now with Motorcity Wine on Memorial Day! Let's face it, we're all worn out by Monday, but this is the last chance of the year to conversate and DANCE with all of our out of town guests!
This year is special for us, so we pulled out all of the stops! Without further ado, here is your line-up:
NICK HOLDER --- Canada Owner of the legendary DNH Records and highly esteemed producer and Dj from our standpoint. One of the best! We're extremely excited to have Nick on board for this special event! Let's get together and show him some of that Detroit LOVE!
Uchikawa --- Japan We're bringing this guy back because his set was a fan favorite and his selections fit right in with the vibe of our night! Deep & Soulful
Claus Bachor --- Germany Great man, great friend and he's been doing this as long as anybody else that we know! His sets can range from classic Disco & old school House classics all the way to the darkest, bangin' techno that you've ever heard!
Derrick Thompson aka Drivetrain --- Detroit Derrick's label Soiree Records has been a staple in Detroit for over 25 years at this point! Styles range from Deep House to Techno and beyond.
Raybone Jones --- Detroit Another fan favorite! Raybone ALWAYS brings it! If the crowds not movin' he's on a seek-n-destroy mission to fix that.
DeTune --- Belgium Never mind his boyish looks, this guy knows his music. He'll weave in and out of soulful Detroit Techno and House without fail. And please, check his production work.
