Both Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek are no strangers to the world of Detroit music. They are champions of Detroit’s massive influence on a global scale. Pritchard has worked with the likes of Phat Kat, Elzhi, and Guilty Simpson in the past, and his whole Harmonic 313 alias is based on his interpretations of how Detroit music has influenced him. Steve Spacek has teamed with J. Dilla before his passing, and the two records they did, the remix of “Eve” and “Dollar”, stand in the upper echelon of Dilla’s greatest productions.
The Detroit show takes place on November 11th at The Works on 1846 Michigan Ave. It’s an 18+ event from 10pm-5am. Also performing is Mux Mool (Ghostly International), Sinistarr (Metalheadz/Renegade Hardware), and a slew of others spread out between two rooms.
