Bicep are a duo to be reckoned with. As adept behind the decks as in the studio, their Feel My Bicep blog is a widely followed source of jams for house and techno heads. Furthermore, they're one of my personal most-anticipated acts for this year's Movement Festival in Detroit.

In addition to a 6 - 7:30 pm set on Sunday at the Moog stage, they'll be headlining their own afterparty on closing night alongside Move D, Daniel Avery, Marcellus Pittman, Jason Kendig, Sassmouth, Mossmoss, Shady P, Andrew Kelley, and a special guest.

Before the festival, we asked them for a playlist to get us excited for all of the above.
"With this selection, we've tried to cover some moments and genres we'd touch on in one of our extended 5 hour sets. Started at around 115 bpm, we make our way up to around 132, covering slo mo, disco funk, house, and techno. We've ordered the list to flow like one of our sets, building towards driving techno and then ending on stuff that's quite epic."
