A mixtape from an Amsterdam based DJ every Monday to kick-start your new week. Archive here.
DJ sets by Jorn Liefdeshuis are a mixed bag. In terms of musical styles, that is. He’s all for breaking down barriers, so he spins R&B next to techno and mixes dubstep with house. In 2005, the now 25 year-old DJ started his Pixel concept at the fabled Club 11 that closed its doors in 2008. Jorn continued to advertise his gospel of ‘romantic club music’ via his Bar Weinig (punning in Dutch: Hardly Anything) nights, Off Centre festival and since January 2011 the monthly Closer nights at Melkweg.
This might sound a little weird, but I tried to re-record last night’s set at the amazing Border Community NYE party at the Melkweg. I had so much fun playing there, that I decided to make a similar podcast for everyone to enjoy. I hope you all do!
This week we have DJ duo Halve Soul in Mixtape Monday. Only one year ago, Roberto Balzarelli and Dieuwer Duijf started Halve Soul together with a new monthly night in Le Patron. Their aim was to bring a different kind of sound, which evolved into a highly danceable four quarter funk with a small obsession for the bass line. They got picked up by local promoters ZeeZout and Paardenkracht who were both also on the rise, and this led to gigs in Paradiso, AIR, Chicago Social Club, Buiten Westen and Valtifest. Enjoy!

This week we have a podcast by Dekmantel Soundsystem member Jan van Kampen. He can shake up even the most washed out after parties and the most blasé clubgoers. And not just with your run of the mill hits, but with the darkest and sleeziest dancefloor ammo available on the market. This Saturday Jan will be hitting the stage at the Off Centre festival in the Melkweg, together with international stars Omar S, Martyn and Pariah. An event well worth visiting. (..more)
