SMARTBAR HOSTS DETROIT ELECTRONIC MUSIC FESTIVAL OPENING PARTY, FEATURING STIMMING AND ELLEN ALLIEN
Smart Bar is heading north to Detroit for the Detroit Electronic Music Festival, celebrating with an Opening Night party on Friday, May 28. In homage to the hometown of techno, Smart Bar will present a celebration of techno and tech house music with artists Stimming, Ellen Allien, Patrick Russell, Aran Daniels and Nate Manic. The party, presented in conjunction with Proper Modulation of Detroit and Bad Advice Inc. of Chicago, is the hottest kickoff to DEMF weekend. It all takes place at Detroit’s historic Majestic Theatre, located at 4140 Woodward Avenue in midtown Detroit.
Martin Stimming was born in Giessen, Germany, and began playing violin, piano and drums when he was just ten years old. After discovering electronic music, and then the techno genre, as a young teen, he soon started to buy vinyl and DJ in the town he lived in, Butzbach. It became quickly apparent that for him making music was more fulfilling than “just” playing a groove, or mixing a record, so he started to take his production seriously and moved to Hamburg to attend the School of Audio Engineering. He was the producer of Gebrueder Ton for two years, and met Diynamic, a record label from Solomun and Adriano. Soon, he made his own debut on Diynamic Records with Diynamic 006 Feurervogel EP, and since 2004 he has continually released albums. There is plenty more to come, from this talented young producer.
