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.
Thursday: SOS band + MORE Bounce afterparty @ Paradiso
Not often does the legendary SOS Band touch down in our city. So that’s already quite special. The band pioneered in combining electronic sounds with funk music, now known to be their trademark. They dominated the charts in the ’80s, and they’ll bring that same groove to Paradiso this Thursday. You can grab your tickets here. And if that wasn’t enough, the guys from MORE BOUNCE will show their (trademarked) contemporary take on the music from the past, providing the tunes for the afterparty in the basement of Paradiso.
Friday: Studio Elektroni/K @ Studio K
Musical art will be made at Studio/k this Friday, which they appropriately dubbed Studio Elektroni/K. With acts ready to pick up their musical brush (read: hardware) and paint a sonic picture for your ears, it’ll be definitely worth the visit, if not for your ears, then for your eyes – and the booze, obviously. Warming up the speakers and the dance floor is Resistance Orchestra, who’s diverse mixes increasingly keep presenting themselves to my ears. Lövestad and Lennard Ypma will subsequently be taking over, finishing up the night’s canvas.
Friday: Ge-ology, Vic Crezee & Mairo Nawaz @ De School
Starting to expand his musical knowledge at a young age by collecting and producing house and hip hop records records, Ge-ology always knows when to play the right tracks at the right moments. Previously working with the likes of Mos Def, Jill Scott and even a young Tupac, the Baltimore DJ is currently more focussed on dance oriented music. He’ll be bringing his versatility to De School, spiraling through disco, soul, house and hip-hop records. He’s accompanied by Vic Crezée and his protégé Mairo Nawaz. The latter is one to look out for, as he’s a 22-year old dude with a contemporary hybrid music taste, which by itself is just awesome. How often would you expect to hear a Migos track right after a classic deep house cut?
