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.
Friday: Bordello A Parigi @ Marktkantine
Italo is alive and doing pretty well! The Marktkantine houses a night filled with Italo disco on Friday. Headlining is the Norwegian Skatebård, who, if you’ve never seen him, really looks exactly like the person you think of when you hear the name Skatebård. Apart from that, he emulates a sound ranging from emotional synths-infused techno to Italo. As does Italo legend Alexander Robotnick, who helped popularize the genre with this dope track. They’re accompanied by De Dupe and music connoisseur Aux Tha Masterfader, from the Dutch-Italo district.
Saturday: Midnight City’s Outplay Label Night @ Canvas
Midnight City is back and joins forces with record label Outplay to provide that real deep house this Saturday. Label owners FOUK (who made a mixtape for us last year) and Midnight City Soundsystem are present behind the wheels, repping the Dutch. They invite UK label mates Laurence Guy and Loz Goddard to spin a few tracks (hopefully from their own repertoire). Both guys steadily produce quality Deep House with a soulful scent hanging around their tracks.
