Boards of Canada to premiere new music right now, plus Movement's best after-parties and Nile Rodgers hits the studio with Guetta, Avicii, and Disclosure

By Ken Taylor

With Detroit’s Movement Festival set to take over the big Memorial Day Weekend, there’s obviously plenty of buzz in the air. We’ve got a lot of it after the jump, but even more immediately, Boards of Canada are about to premiere some new music. Get ready and tune in!

- Boards of Canada are set to premiere some more new music tonight on BBC Radio, between 7 and 9 p.m. GMT. Which is, like, right now! (full story)

- Nile Rodgers—he of Chic and recent Daft Punk fame—has been collaborating with Disclosure, Chase & Status, Avicii, and David Guetta. So put that in your pipe and smoke it. (full story)

- The Movement Festival kicks off on Saturday, but in the lead-up, promoter Jason Huvaere spoke with Dancing Astronaut about how the Detroit event has evolved since its inception in 2000. (full story)

- On that note, there is naturally a buttload of afterparties slated for Detroit this weekend. Resident Advisor has put together a handy guide of don’t-miss events. (full story)

- There’s something calming about watching Toolroom TV. Like a Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous for the clubbing set, Mark Knight’s label team always does a nice job of wrapping together studio trips and nightlife scenes into a digestible few minutes over morning coffee. At least that’s how I take it in. Enjoy.
