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. While there isn’t a special occasion, sometimes, just sometimes a weekend is filled with some good parties that make you forget about the weekly woes by pleasuring your ears. This weekend happens to be exactly that.
Friday: Azymuth @ North Sea Jazz Club
Kick off your weekend with some top notch, first class jazz-funk from Brazil. Friday, over at the North Sea Jazz Club, the legendary band Azymuth will be laying down some sweet tunes from their repertoire. They’ve been an important source of inspiration for a lot of bands that came after them. They dub their own music ‘crazy samba’, which incorporates styles like jazz, funk, samba, bossa nova and soul. There’ll definitely be something for every music lover. Additionally, they’re celebrating the release of their new album, Fênix! So grab a ticket and smoothly slide into your weekend. Why go all out right from the start of your weekend, when you can also ease in and let the sound of Brazil soothe your ears?
Friday: San Proper, Rahaan & Maxi Mill @ Shelter
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a way to put out a bit more energy, and still wanna get your groove on, then Shelter is the place to be. San Proper, Rahaan and Maxi Mill will be dusting off the obscure tracks from the Disco era and blend them with some house tunes.
Saturday: Patrick Russell, JP Enfant & Albert van Abbe @ De School
Head down to De School for more deep vibes on Saturday, as Patrick Russell is a master of digging deep through the underground. His sets take you on a journey told by slow paced electronic percussions and raw, dreamy synths. The melodic minimal sound is also emulated by JP Enfant and Albert van Abbe.
Sunday: Ed Motta @ North Sea Jazz Club
With the same ease as on Friday, there’s a relaxing way to end your weekend on Sunday. Just let Ed Motta cure your hangover from the previous night. He’ll also bring the diverse sound of Brazil to the North Sea Jazz Club. His new album, Perpetual Gateways, is certainly worth a listen if you’re into jazz, funk or soul. The only thing he needs is a Rhodes piano and his voice to provide you with a sonic orgasm, as you can see below. Grab a ticket here.
