Crack Magazine are returning to the Bristol venue for a massive party on 8 December.

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be heading to Motion to stage a line-up featuring techno and house’s finest, along with some of the most exciting, talked about DJs coming through.

As the founding father of Detroit collective Underground Resistance, veteran producer Jeff Mills is an artist whose stripped-back, minimalist approach has shaped the course of techno. And though his legacy is firmly rooted in dance music history, the techno maestro remains at the very cutting-edge with his focus on technological innovation and future-facing sounds.

Motor City Drum Ensemble, otherwise known as Daniel Plessow, will also be taking to the decks with his Detroit-infused house serving as a reminder as to why he’s one of the most respected names in his field.

Also joining the bill is Courtesy, whose rapid ascent in recent years is testament to her kinetic, far-reaching style of DJing. Discwoman affiliate UMFANG, who delights in pushing audiences out of their comfort zone with her raw-edged mutation of techno, will be making her way to the Bristol venue, as will Tokyo DJ Powder and London underground hero Gideön. Furthermore, there’ll be support from Lullabies boss Izabel, Wisdom Teeth label head Facta, NTS affiliate Danielle and Studio 89’s David J Bull.

Head to the Facebook event for more information, and Motion’s website for tickets. This year, Crack will also be heading to Amsterdam for its first ever ADE party.

Prep yourself for the event by listening to Crack Mix 160 with Powder.
