Too many plans for the weekend? Let me narrow your options down by weekly suggesting the 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’. So here’s where you weekend warriors should go to for next Monday’s hangover.
Friday: Likeminded @ BRET
After a successful ADE adventure Woodstock ’69 decided to head back to BRET. This time as Likeminded, a new sub-brand. Woodstock is the first place I ever danced to electronic music. I basically grew up there. I’m very excited to see how their new club concept will turn out without the north sea nearby. Expect an intimate party at an exciting new venue, driven by a high-end sound system to experience music as it should be. Music is from Tsepo and Love Over Entropy.
Saturday: Next Monday’s Hangover @ De Marktkantine
Next Monday’s Hangover has been providing me with hangovers on Monday for five years now. Come to think of it, I’ve come to appreciate these hangovers. Well, almost. Of course this is a birthday that needs to be celebrated! And what better way than to invite Pampa Records to De Marktkantine?! It’s the only label where they can pull of apes with pink sweaters and pink turkeys on their art work (check out their ADE showcase in 2014). DJ Koze will rock a 3,5-hour set and isolée, Die Vögel, Ada, NMH resident Some Chemistry and his friends are playing as well. ☾
Saturday: These Guys Essentials @ Cruquiusgilde
The basics, fundamentals and necessities. These Guys Essentials represents the roots of machine music. And what better place to do so than in my favorite cozy warehouse in town? Robert Witschakowski first began releasing music as The Exaltics in 2007. Since then, his Drexciyan-influenced brand of electro and acid has arrived on imprints such as Bunker, Creme Organization, Solar One Music and Clone. People have waited a long time for this, but this Saturday it’s happening; The Exaltics Live. MGUN and Kowloon Odussey are on the bill as well. Happy weekend!
