Just days before the start of this weekend’s Movement 2009 in Detroit comes news that Carl Craig has been named Creative Director for Movement 2010. Craig was fired from a similar role with the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF) in 2001 for failing to secure several artist contracts on deadline.
Obligatory press gush from Carl Craig: “Movement is already a great festival and a successful brand. It is an honor to be involved with Movement in this new capacity. I look forward to working with the team from Paxahau to take the artistic vision for the festival to a new level.”
Obligatory press gush from Jason Huvaere, president of Paxahau: “We were extremely excited when Carl agreed to come on board as our new creative director. He has a complete understanding of the history of Techno Music in Detroit. He understands its impact around the world because he lives it every day.”
