For the past four years, Detroit natives Ted Krisko and Eric Ricker (aka ATAXIA) have been throwing one of the most iconic Movement afterparties. Hosted at the world-famous TV Lounge, the DJ duo bring some of the best talent in the city to three stages for a party that literally lasts all night.
This year, the OK, Cool! party was no different. Presented by Dax Presents and My Baby, the event started at 9pm Sunday evening with the music still going until just before the festival doors reopened at noon on Monday. If you thought you partied all night before, this took it to a whole new level.
With sets from Seth Troxler, The Black Madonna, Craig Richards, Heartthrob, Eddie C, Loren, Mr. Joshooa and, of course, ATAXIA (and many more), the dance floor was literally packed the entire evening.
Many artists joined ATAXIA at TV after their own performances at the festival—including Seth Troxler, The Black Madonna, and Mr. Joshooa, who all were eager to hop on the decks for round 2. What was truly special was ATAXIA’s rare Detroit set. After their move to Brooklyn a few years back, it's truly a treat to have them back in the Motor City!
I can sit here and tell you it was a great party… But how can you truly be sure? Well, after a party of their own, the Dirtybird crew showed up to finish out the evening at TV Bar. It was great to see Barclay (aka Claude VonStroke), Justin, Ardalan and a few others come out to support one of the most noteworthy events in Detroit. The vibes were strong throughout and we left with our dancing shoes glued to our feet. OK, that was definitely Cool.
Thanks for such a killer party guys—We’ll see you next year!
