313: Return to the Source 2018

"Join us for a rare celebration where we return to the source, to what inspired us in the first place. Our home is in the underground." - from the inaugural leaky roof No Way Back in 2007. 
 
 
It was true then, and it is true now. What began as a party that extended beyond boundaries in 2007 has found a new home in the Tangent Gallery, and it has blossomed into its own kind of festival, with the Tresor party on Saturday Night, No Way Back on Sunday, and The Bunker party on Monday. With the additional events not thrown by us, but that we do production for (Eden on Friday and a special party in the sunlight on Monday), the Tangent became its own special destination that weekend. 
 
Thus 313: Return to the Source was born. This year we celebrate that with a specially priced weekend pass for all 313: Return to the Source events (Tresor, No Way Back, The Bunker), this weekend pass includes an IT tote bag, and once you have claimed your weekend wristband, you will not have to wait in ticketing lines for remaining parties.
 
To further celebrate over 10 years of No Way Back, we are continuing the Acid Series, a series of records on IT inspired by the No Way Back parties, with new volumes from Jordan Zawideh and BMG & Derek Plaslaiko. The Acid Series includes submissions from Tin Man & Ectomorph, Jasen Loveland, Justin Cudmore, BMG & Derek Plaslaiko, Jordan Zawideh, Dona, Romans and Pervocet (Patrick Russell & Jasen Loveland). They all arrive in a unique sleeve especially created for this series, inspired by the decorations of NWB. The second 2 volumes of the Acid Series will be available in the merch booth during all 313: Return to the Source events.
 
As a special treat, we have made a documentary about No Way Back with producer CK Nelson and filmmaker Andrew Charles Edman, centering on last year's 10th Anniversary, and telling the history and touch stones of this party.

"Tresor uses the bridge it has built over the past three decades, to travel from Berlin to Detroit for its annual visit. For this third collaboration with Interdimensional Transmissions at Tangent Gallery, the Berlin institute calls on some of Motor City's most legendary producers and DJs, as well as some of its closest family members on the North American and European continents. 
Anthony "Shake" Shakir and Claude Young return to the Gallery room for what has now become one of the highlights of the 313 Return To The Source weekend. They are interlaced by Marcellus Pittman, Fit Siegel and Tresor's own Mareena and Handmade.
The Ballroom stage hosts Silent Servant for the midnight set that has now become a tradition. Adam X follows with a raw selection characteristic of his Sonic Groove residency at Tresor. The night culminates in Dasha Rush debuting her live show in Detroit. No one other than Noncompliant could possibly support such a hulking program and bring the Ballroom into the morning. 
In the Garden, Daniel Bell resumes at 04:00am the magical sunrise session he inaugurated in 2017. Tresor looks forward to gathering with you around this truly memorable moment.

We are trying to create a ritual space for personal exploration, to release basic tension. The form that society is forcing you to hold, you can release that. It lets you experience that yourself, as yourself, raw, and to connect to the music and reconnect to life. At a place removed from time. The amorphous space, the cave like atmosphere. This ancient psychedelic ritual, that removes you from the loop of the earth, it removes you from time.
— BMG
11 Years of No Way Back, it's hard to believe. Each year we think we may have reached our apex, the party surprises us and surpasses everyone's expectations. This party goes until noon, there is sound outside, and a whole new fenced in area, expanding the outdoors. 
Every DJ chosen to play at No Way Back is a master of their medium, so deep in it that they all serve as constant inspiration. This is a celebration of the lost art of the late night Midwestern DJ. If you don't understand the touchstones of this party, it might be impossible to explain. It is a comment on a continuum. This is our generation returning to the source, feeling a freedom and a heat within the music that results in speaker fucking. Every generation experiences this whether it was at The Loft, Better Days, The Gallery, The Warehouse, The Shrine, Cosmic, Luomos, The Muzic Box, The Hacienda, Area Code 313, Spanky's, Medusa's, The Music Institute, or The Tangent. You might not even know that you have soul until you experience being totally lost in the music and realize there is no way back.
The Tangent Gallery is the ultimate blank slate venue run by the people in it for the right reasons, who allow us to fully transform their space for every show we do there. It's in the epicenter of what is actually happening in Detroit, only blocks from FIT Distribution, Submerge, and Moodymann's Prince Tribute house. 
 
In the Outer Space Room we have two of the best live shows of the ambient and experimental persuasion. At dawn, of course, the room is transformed by the sunrise set from Scott Zacharias. In the No Way Back room we have all of our residents, with Erika performing a live solo show. 
 
There are many places to lose yourself, but what happens in the No Way Back room might just change your life.

"We feel closer to our IT family than ever because we share their vision of getting lost in the sound, as well as overlaps between our crews' resident DJs, label artists, and key collaborators. After co-presenting 8 editions of No Way Back in Detroit, and 7 editions in Brooklyn over the last decade, in 2016 The Bunker and Interdimensional Transmissions started a new tradition of throwing The Bunker on Memorial Day at Tangent gallery. This year is extra special as we celebrate 15 Years of The Bunker, one of many such parties happening worldwide throughout 2018. Embracing the concept of collaboration, we're featuring a series of specially curated DJ pairings in The Dance Room." – Bryan Kasenic
Interdimensional Transmissions is proud to present 15 Years of The Bunker in Detroit. Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of The Bunker in Detroit with a carefully curated collaborative line up is such an honor. The Dance Room features all collaborative sets, from The Bunker residents Mike Servito & Bryan Kasenic, New York via Berlin legends Function & Adam X presenting their Brooklyn Beats '88-91 set, and an extended closing set from Jane Fitz & Eric Cloutier, the perfect way to end the festivities. And for those that can no longer dance, or stand, or think, and just want to hear and experience incredibly strange music, we have The Come Down Room. This room will feature live shows from Gunnar Haslam, Clay Wilson & rrao, and Abby Echiverri, and will be anchored by our left-field DJs Beau Wanzer & Stallone the Reducer.
