Chicago vs Detroit #4

Detroit15 Nov 201523:00 - 05:00 GMT

It's the big* one: we're capping our week of Chicago vs Detroit with a mammoth party in the Motor City's Whisky Disco.

In the red corner, the machines of Michigan: Women On Wax founder DJ Minx; K-HAND (who has a clutch of banging tracks on Nina Kraviz' трип imprint out soon, just fyi); and first wave lynchpin Blake Baxter, making a trip home from LA especially for this Boiler Room.

In the blue corner, all the way from Illinois: underrated techno torchbearer DJ Skull, plus a pair of pioneers in the shape of chart-gatecrashing 'King of House' Farley "Jackmaster" Funk, and Merwyn Sanders (aka Merle) from Virgo Four, playing live. Both absolute legends in their own right, more influential in music culture than it's really hard to quantify.

Seven artists, six hours and one hell of a way to send off the trip.

* Well, they all are.
