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: We Are E with Fairmont, Olivier Weiter and Patrice Bäumel @ Studio 80

“When the old man in the red cloak has just left our country and every child is enjoying new toys and leftover candy, We Are E returns to Studio 80 with a dance floor present that comes straight from the cutting edge between techno and indie. A fully analogue live set from FAIRMONT”. In anticipation to his new album Automaton on My Favorite Robot, my expectations for his live show are high, as always. I hope he is just as awesome as he was last summer at the stage during Lazy Sundays Festival. The man will be supported by We Are E resident Olivier Weiter, Trouw resident Patrice Bäumel and upcoming artists like Zwaan, Sjeroem and Verdi in Studio 2.

Friday: Format – Juan Sanchez invites Paul Ritch Live, Mladen Tomic, Dispar Vulgo @ AIR

FORMAT, the one and only techno party in AIR every second Friday of the month. They’ve been throwing these parties for over a year featuring the best of worldwide techno-heads. This time around they’re bringing over a protagonist in the underground techno scene: Paul Ritch (LIVE). There’s something special about this edition though, they’ll be continuing they party until nine in the morning! Expect the best of contemporary techno from supporting artists Dispar Vulgo, Mladen Tomic (BG) and a layer of house in the second area hosted by with ME.N.U. (LIVE), Het Meisje and La Vondèl (LIVE). Naturally, your host Juan Sanchez will hit the decks as well.

Friday: De Nachtdivisie @ Chicago Social Club

I guess the winter and its related depressions have officially begun. All the more reason to let go of the sun with a good and old-fashioned house party at your favourite social club. As always, expect a handful of young and attractive residents such as Terry Toner, Deep ‘n Disco Boys & PONY. But more importantly, they invited deephouse heroes CLIMBERS all the way from Mexico, for the first time in Holland that is! Area 2 will be hosted by Trutjes with their local talents.

Saturday: SWTBOX @ Trouw

SWTBOX is the clubnight of Trouw resident Nuno Dos Santos. SWTBOX is about creating a home for all those who love to give 100% on the dance floor, all night long. For those who follow their legs and hips instead of trendy music blogs. For those who come to a club in order to give, not take. For those who love to lose themselves in a sensory overload of mind-bending sounds, strobes, sweat, bodies and the surreal visuals of VJ Arnout Hulskamp. Full throttle. SWTBOX, this time featuring Cari Lekebusch. The Stockholm-based sound architect stands alongside other Swedish techno profiles like Adam Beyer, Joel Mull, Alexi Delano and Jesper Dahlbäck. Of course, your host Nuno Dos Santos will provide the best of complicated techno music for the soul.
