A mixtape from an Amsterdam based DJ every Monday to kick-start your new week. Archive here.
Kid Culture is one of the more exciting prospects to emerge from Amsterdam’s fertile scene at the moment. Heroes like Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Laurent Garnier, Solomun and Carl Graig are just a few of the DJs spinning his records, and 2011 gigs at Awakenings, Extrema Outdoor, Solar, Tresor, Sonar are more proof of his rising stock. His sound is hard to put a tag on, but damn funky.
This selection was made with Detroit in mind. In the early days people like Derrick May, Carl Craig, Aril Brikha, UR, Kenny Larkin inspired me big time. They learned me how to appreciate the soul in electronic music. Enjoy the ride.
Du Chatinier is an upcoming Amsterdam based DJ/Producer. His major influence are the early years of house music, with heroes such as Sneak and Phil Weeks. The best way to describe his sound is Raw & Funky House. This young and talented producer has put his main focus on producing for the last several months and you’ll probably hear this soon enough.

Youngster Michiel Tettero (20) is on Mixtape Monday duty this week. He may be just 20, but after already making his club debut in Haarlem’s Club Stalker back in 2006 you could say he has already been noticed. His style could be described as a mix between house, tech-house, deep house, jazz and techno with phat grooves and inciting rhythms and hi-hats. Not an everyday blend, but certainly a tasteful one. He has recently released his first EP, in collaboration with Camiel Daamen, Everybody EP (PiekUp Records) and more will follow soon.. (..more)
