AFRO-TECH FEST: Mike Huckaby Sun Ra DJ-Set (Support: Delicious Frequencies)

Tanzcafé Oma Doris | 10/21/2017 , 23:00

Mike Huckaby is a DJ and producer from Detroit who made a name for himself in the international techno scene in the mid-1990s. Besides his career as a musician, he also runs the Deep Transportation and S Y N T H labels and works as a lecturer in music production. He is particularly committed to community work for children and teenagers in Detroit.

His remixes for big names such as Juan Atkins, Vladislav Delay, Pole, Loco Dice, LoSoul and Pacou testify to his special status in the world of electronic club music.

As part of the Afro-Tech Fest, Huckaby will present a very special and highly danceable DJ set with numerous edits and remixes of songs by the legendary avant-garde jazz musician and Afrofuturist Sun Ra. His set will be connecting two of the main strands running through the Afro-Tech exhibition and festival week, namely, the translation of Afrofuturism into the warm, exhilarating sounds of jazz and funk in the 1960s and '70s by bands like the Sun Ra Arkestra and Parliament, and the adaptation and renewal of its ideas in the posthuman machine aesthetics of techno
