Movement Artist Not to Miss – The Black Madonna
Movement Electronic Music Festival enters into its 10 year as Detroit’s tribute to house music. Since its start 10 years ago, Movement has somehow stayed in the underbelly of electronic festivals, while still being one of the most sought after for those who truly love the deepest parts of the scene. The artists on the Movement lineup aren’t the ones you’ll be hearing on top 40 radio, and it’s a beautiful thing. However, this does not mean that those heading to the stage are any less than geniuses. One of these believably unbelievable artists to hit Movement’s 10 year anniversary is Chicago’s own The Black Madonna.
The Black Madonna has a way of maximizing her talents in a way that bring people together and tear them apart in the same motion. She is the poster child for anti-pop electronic music and isn’t afraid to show it. She’s in-your-face both in her music and her career. Her music is both easy to dance to and impossible to follow, and that’s exactly what she is going for. Ever changing and never predictable, her EPs are a beautiful train wreck in which no one gets hurt but the destruction is costly. On vinyl, she is in high demand in the Chicago music scene. As if her music didn’t do enough to make a name for herself in the Midwest, she’s also a talent buyer for Chicago’s Smart Bar, helping to keep it one of the best clubs in North America. The Black Madonna has worked with several labels and she continues to do what she wants, staying true to never staying true.
Sensible Reason can’t wait to catch this powerhouse at Movement Electronic Music Festival May 28-30th in Detroit. Tickets are still available, so snag them before it’s too late and you’re stuck listening to the same build and drop you’ve been hearing for the past 3 years straight.
