About the author
New name, same concept. Too many plans for the weekend? Let me narrow down your options 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 make it worth your damn hangover.
Thursday: Moody’s Hut @ Disco Dolly
Disco Dolly invites Triphouse’s Moody Mehran and Ohana Hana’s Woody to Amsterdam this Thursday. Both gangs represent a new wave of DJs, resonating a sound that should reach more auditory canals if you ask me. Synth-heavy and tropical-infused tribe vibes mixed with a sprinkle of house will cause the temperature inside Dolly to rise to a climax. So expect to sweat your ass off on the intimate dance floor.
Friday: Kommune @ Radion
For their one-year anniversary, Kommune descends to the Bovenkamer over at Radion. Curated and owned by KMS’s Dutch wonderboy Nathan Surreal, it’ll certainly be a night in which only a certain musical quality will be allowed. The birthday tunes will be provided by Chaos In The CBD, KAAP and Nathan Surreal himself. Not only does Kommune celebrate its anniversary, it also celebrates the fact that their Kommunity keeps coming together and passionately rocking to the tunes from the speakers. It’s definitely worth a hangover, so grab your ticks here.
Saturday: House Legends @ Canvas
House Legends is back, and boy have they got yet another pioneer ready for you: none other than the craftsman of the one and only house music anthem Marshall Jefferson! I’m really impressed how the organization keeps on bringing legend after legend to the Dam. (But hey, they didn’t call themselves House Legends for nothing.) Jefferson’s sounds are the cradle of (deep) house, where he added piano strings, heavy elements and live drums to house music, causing it to be a little more organic. This was especially the case on his collaborative work with Ten City. However, I think it’s better he’ll tell you the story behind the infamous song himself.
The Chicago legend is backed up by the guy who miraculously knows the content of my music library better than me, Tim Zwerver. He’ll be warming up the floor with an all-vinyl set filled with house faves. This Saturday might be your chance to experience a little little of the glorious days of ’90s house music!
