Ridz, advertises, produces indie/electronic music, performs throughout the Netherlands but ultimately always ends up at an Amsterdam based ensemble... then he blogs about all these things.

Too many plans for the weekend? Let me narrow down your options by suggesting some events where you can meet, dance and drink with Amsterdam’s finest crowds. After all, ‘a hangover ain’t worth the pain if the party is lame’. Here’s where you weekend warriors should go to for next Monday’s hangover.

Friday: FORMAT: Juan Sanchez invites Alex Under, Remy, Don Ruijgrok @ AIR

The initiators of FORMAT, Juan Sanchez, Misc and AIR have built up a reputation by now. This Friday, techno maniacs from in and around Amsterdam are treated to the best of techno sounds once again. For this occasion they’ve invited Alex Under, Remy and Don Ruijgrok to shine behind the decks, not the least of names in the clubbing scene. By the way, look out for Boel op Stelten in the small area.

Friday: Cartel @ Chicago Social Club

Cartel is a party concept initiated by Rust Roest Producties and TWSTd. They hit Leidseplein’s Chicago Social Club every three months. The formula they work with is putting upcoming DJs and live talents on stage together with renown (international) artists from the house and tech-house industry. For this occasion, they booked Hector (all the way from Mexico), Unders & Daamen, Mark Antoni and Roy Habets amongst others. Did I mention Chicago Social Club closes at 5 instead of 4 nowadays? Well now you know.

Saturday: RATIO? feat Marcus Worgull & Melon @ Trouw

From what I’ve heard, the best phrase to describe Innervision’s Marcus Worgull‘s approach to DJing is ‘venue appropriate.’ Over the years he has developed a keen sense for picking the right record at exactly the right time. Whether he’s playing outdoors in the middle of the day, or a peak-time set in the dead of night, his ability to read the crowd is unquestionable. I personally don’t really understand why this guy isn’t up there like the rest of the Innervisions protagonists like Schwartz, Âme and Dixon. Maybe he can convince you this Friday at Trouw together with host Melon. I think he will.

Saturday: Click Loves Minus @ Westerunie / Westergasterras / Westerliefde

After their major party during ADE a few weeks ago, they guys behind the renowned techno nights Click decided to host a special Minus showcase this Saturday. Who are we talking about? None other than Marc Houle (live), Heartthrob (live) and Ambivalent. Sound juicy right? A must go for any lovers of the contemporary minimal techno sound brought by Richie Hawtin.
