Techno is finally making waves in the United States, with Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival amassing its best attendance numbers in its 10-year history and events like Time Warp making their way to U.S. shores. OWSLA, Skrillex‘s forward-thinking record label, has taken notice, and hosted their own stage takeover at Movement, spawning a hilarious recap video and a techno-oriented installment of the OWSLA Radio show on Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music.
First up, popular Youtube event and festival videographer glenjamn3 posted a hilarious recap video of Mija‘s set at Movement on the OWSLA takeover of the festival’s Underground Stage. The video starts simply enough, with crowd shots and Mija dropping serious techno anthems, but at 3 minutes and 50 seconds glenjamn3 captures a crowd-goer who loses his proverbial marbles during the set. The attendee raises his arms, weeps, and wades back and forth in a trance. Currently going viral on reddit, the video perfectly captures why people are falling in love with house and techno.
