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: One Nation Under a Groove @ Radion
A massive collaborative evening arises in Radion this Friday, with a killer line-up ready to make your soul vibrate through their music. Resident DJs from Our Society, Brighter Days, Tomorrow Is Now, Kid, and Get On Down unite as one nation under a groove, where house music and both preceding and surrounding genres will be celebrated. In addition, half of the team that makes up Detroit supergroup 3 Chairs, Marcellus Pittman and Rick Wilhite, have been invited to do the honors of providing that groove. As you’ll hear in the mix below, they definitely know their way, switching between styles with ease.
Saturday: Bam Boe 4th birthday w/ Phil Weeks @ Sugarfactory
Besides Bam Boe always having a solid vibe at every event, they’re also very good at selecting the right DJs for their events. And Saturday is no exception, as Parisian house purist Phil Weeks comes over for the fourth birthday of Bam Boe. In fact, there is extra cause for celebration; Weeks has released a new album called Raw Instrumental Volume 2, which you can listen to below. I’ve just discovered it, but already feel like it’s a great dance floor thumper. So if you’re feeling celebrative, the Sugarfactory will complement that feeling in more than one way.
Saturday: Incognito @ Paradiso
Ah yes, it’s that time of the year again. Luckily for me, my favorite band Incognito stops by the Netherlands on an annual basis. This time, the English acid jazz group, who have been around making music since the early ’80s, are hitting the stage in Paradiso this Saturday. Acid jazz really is my personal go-to genre. It has such heart warming sounds, whether they come from the horn section, the funky basslines or from the jazzy rhodes keys. Above all, Acid Jazz emulates positivity, as coincidentally one of Incognito’s greatest albums is called. They’re an under appreciated band, with a big ass repertoire of both hits and covers. You probably already notice my excitement, and I hope it rubs off on you. If you have the chance, I highly recommend you to head down to Paradiso. Their live performance provide for a ecstatic evening, resulting in you leaving the Paradiso with a smile afterwards. That I can guarantee you!
