Once again this end of May I make the pilgrimage to the mecca of Techno, Detroit. I’ve been going to Detroit for @movementdetroit , DEMF, Fusion at Hart Plaza since its inception in 2000 attending about 14 times there since. My affection for Detroit Techno and my long term friendships and connections with nearly all of the first and second generation producers from there has left this city as a destination I must still visit annually. I’m looking forward to seeing all my peers there young and old this weekend. I hope to catch you all out and about. I’ll be playing at Observe from 2-4AM Sunday night. See ya all soon! #detroittechno #detroit #sonicgrooverecords

Skull played a lot of parties with me and the original @sonic_groove_records posse back in the mid90’s in NYC. Old school techno family biz going down right here.

Was watching “We Own the Night” on Netflix yesterday when I shockingly saw this very fast PLUM piece I did in 1990 in the movie which came out in 2007. PLUM stood for Peace, Love, Unity , Movement and was an acronym for the first raves in NYC which we would organize on Plumb Beach in Brooklyn. An early premonition and goal of ours to organize parties in Brooklyn without worrying about violence that seemingly plagued youth culture all over NYC at the time. This is the precursor to those first parties. A dream of ours that became a reality. Long live techno and the peace it brings to people from all walks of life! Sonic Groove Frankie Bones
Now were gonna go back, back in to time. The year is 1990 on the verge of going into 1991, My brother, dj Frankie Bones and I with our friend Chris P Crunch about to get busy in LA. Coming June 21st Bones and I will be playing our first gig together in Europe in 9 years at Tresor.Berlin (OFFICIAL) . If any promoters are interested in booking us in the EU around this time hit me up!

The first party I organized along with Schlagstrom when I moved to Berlin back in 2007. This was the 1st ever modern day EBM / Industrial Techno party in Berlin and we crossed the parallel of music lovers from techno to the Industrial / EBM scenes which had not been done before here or really anywhere else prior. It was an awesome event. 700 people looking for something new and they found it! Inspired me to organize many more parties in Berlin since then and for sure helped paved the way for where we are in the present with Industrial / Techno / EBM music scenes. Next event from me will be at Tresor next Friday 22.02.19 with Crystal geometry The Panacea Official MAX DURANTE Sonic Groove The parallel has been crossed!
They say trance music is the next big thing coming in techno. I say bring it on so when you dj b4 or after me I sound even that much better. No tears here ever for shit music and the dj’s/producers that play or make it!#fuckyourshittyasscheesytrancemusic #industrialtechnoebm4life #hardcorenosellout #Ialreadysurvivedminimaltechnoandtechhouseandamstillhere #Iwin!
