- Sounds Of Detroit includes samples from Mark Flash, Delano Smith and Marco Shuttle, among others.
Movement and music production platform Splice are teaming up to share the sample libraries of the Detroit festival's artists.
The sample pack, Sounds Of Detroit, is based on field recordings made by Detroit artists Shigeto and Waajeed at various locations around the city. Musicians from Movement's 2018 lineup were then invited to High Bias recording studios to edit and transform those recordings into samples and loops.
Sounds Of Detroit includes contributions from Andrés, Mark Flash, Ectomorph, Blake Baxter, Shady P, Delano Smith, Black Noi$e, Kweku Saunderson, Antenes, Marco Shuttle, MGUN, Chuck Daniels, Milan Ariel, Gene Farris, The Saunderson Brothers, Marshall Applewhite, Mija, Jon Dixon and Chris Koltay.

Proceeds will go to two local non-profits, The Seraphine Collective and Spin, Inc.,
which aim to promote an inclusive Detroit music scene.
Splice has also shared a short documentary of the same name, which details the process behind the sample pack and the stories of the artists involved.
