With an almost insurmountable number of parties happening in and around Amsterdam during Amsterdam Dance Event, it is a tall order to pick out just 5 artists to catch.
Saying that we have gone that extra mile for you so all you need to worry about is which one to catch first….
Robin Ordell @ VBX ADE, BRET
Robin Ordell is an artist that has really come into his own these past few years and with his productions dropping on esteemed labels such as Eklo and Discobar he is very much on a hot streak. From his beginnings, with Half Baked he has now graduated to become a part of the burgeoning VBX family and will likely shine at the Dutch collectives’ party at BRET on Thursday, October 17th.
Markus Sommer @ SlapFunk, Veronica Schip
There is little that needs to be said about Robert Johnson resident Markus Sommer, his Pager Records imprint has given a home to the likes of Z@p, Philipp Boss, and his own productions have found their way on to the likes of La Pena, Sol Asylum and Ministerium Records. At the SlapFunk party on Friday, October 18th Markus will be playing back to back with fellow Pager Records founder and GOSU head Phil Evans, make sure you don’t miss it.
Topper @ ADE Closing Afterparty, Ponton
Italian born, Berlin-based artist Topper has settled into his place in the European minimal scene perfectly. Starring at infamous venues Club der Visionaere and Hoppetosse as a result of his Noisy Glance parties and also at last years Sunwaves festival, Topper’s releases for the likes of Sleep Is Commercial, Nerv Music and Discobar have ensured he remains in prime place. His inclusion in the ADE afterparty at Ponton on Sunday, October 20th was an easy one, just make sure you still have plenty in the tank when Sunday night rolls around.
Hamish & Toby @ VBX ADE Afterhours, Veronica Schip
Another London based act that is very much making moves in the international circuit thanks to their impressive domestic form. Hamish & Toby have become an integral part of the London club scene and so it is little surprise that they have been entrusted to close out the bouncing VBX after-hours event on Veronica Schip on Sunday, October 20th.
Christian AB @ Bon A Parte x Roof Booking, Oosterbar
One of the great things about ADE is that relatively small venues such as Oosterbar are transformed in to fully functioning clubs and are programmed with top artists. On Friday, October 18th this bar situated to the north of Oosterpark will play home to a joint venture between Bon A Parte and Roof Bookings. The result is a finely curated event including a performance from Christian AB, an artist that has been playing all the right parties recently and for very good reason.
