Local Rockstars: Kid Sublime owns more video tapes than records

Local Rockstars: Kid Sublime owns more video tapes than records

Jan 22, 2015 |  by  |  Music

Kid Sublime is definitely one of Amsterdam’s house music pioneers. A small part of his background: he worked behind the counter of the legendary Fat Beats record store and toured the world with Brazilian band Zuco 103. Kid’s producing, just started his own radio show and this Sunday he’s throwing the first edition of his party in Studio 80. I had a little chat with him at 15:00 and luckily we found out we both just woke up. (..more)

Chances are big that if you’re into house, in the broadest sense of the genre, you’ve danced on Detoit Swindle’s music before. I know I have many times and I will recommend it to anyone who asks. When I had a little chat and some fresh mint tea with too much honey with Lars Dales and Maarten I discovered that apart from having a impressive taste in music, they are really fun as well.

What is the mysterious All Under One Roof?

What is the mysterious All Under One Roof?

Oh how I love the mysterious. Cryptic yellow posters with seemingly random objects, a hashtag, a link that leads only the most curious among us to a secretive website with nothing but a registration form. These kind of things excite me more than anything. And now the veil of mystery (..more)

Public transport just became live and more fun

Public transport just became live and more fun

Whether you’re tourist, expat or local, you know public transport in Amsterdam can be a bitch. It seems to be natural law to see the wrong tram pass by three times while waiting for the right one. Trucks unloading, traffic jams, bad weather: a lot can occur, and it’s always a surprise when your ride will show up. (..more)

Schwarzmann Soirée, where the fading boundaries between disciplines create magic

Schwarzmann Soirée, where the fading boundaries between disciplines create magic

Dec 4, 2014 |  by  |  Music

I still have goosebumps all over while writing this. Last Sunday, something really special went down in Trouw. Schwarzmann (Henrik Schwarz and Frank Wiedemann – 50% of Âme), performed a six hour laptop jam session with guest appearances of musicians from different musical disciplines. The fact that Trouw only has one month to go also added to the experience. To be honest, the event left me speechless. (..more)
