Motor City Drum Ensemble
Grande Halle de la Villette,
Detroit is not the only town to deserve the title of “Motor City”. Stuttgart is a serious contender. Daniel Plessow was inspired by the atmosphere of Germany’s Motor city to found his Motor City Drum Ensemble, a project that successfully solves a difficult challenge: to ally the groove of house music with industrial ambiances, and top it off with large quantities of jazz, soul, and human warmth. In theory, it is an unstable recipe, but once it passes through a mixing board, the result is perfectly functional. Your feet will be the first to testify to the experiment’s success.
