After taking last week off to catch our collective breath, we decided to celebrate the fact that festival season is about to go full throttle with a special Movement Detroit edition of Weekend is 4 Lovers. Still a bounty of the best sets with a little bit of everything included, we’ve rounded up our recommendations for some mandatory pre-Movement listening. Whether or not you’ll be making your way to Motown next week, an assortment of the artists playing are all here for your aural enjoyment. Before we get into the mix, we would be remiss not to mention our featured favorites from the past week, a Hometown Heroes mix from LA duo Plastic Love, and a Lovecast from Lewis Boardman <3
