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.
Friday: The music of Jamiroquai @ North Sea Jazz Club
The North Sea Jazz Club is hosting another tribute night. After the success of the previous nights, devoted to the music of Herbie Hancock and Sergio Mendes, the cover band turns to the tunes of Jamiroquai this Friday, who coincidentally are in the process of releasing singles for their new album Automaton. The British acid jazz band, one of my favorites, have been around since the early ’90s, and always kept improving and changing their sound. Expect a lot of familiar classics like one of these. You can still grab a ticket here. In the meantime, groove out to this old live performance and let yourself be convinced.
Saturday: Heist Recordings @ Claire
Claire and Heist Recordings team up once more for another label night. Soundstream is headlining the main room together with label owners Detroit Swindle. Ranging from deep house and disco to African percussion heavy music, it’s really hard to say what Detroit Swindle will play next, but that’s the driving force behind them. In the other area, the guys from FOUK will bring along a bag of dusty house wax that’ll provide the lush sound for the evening.
Saturday: Midnight City @ Canvas
Yet another Dutch (re-)debut is introduced by Midnight City. This time, DJ VAS comes over from France. He came up around the same time Daft Punk and Cassius started making noise, which is quite a while ago. He has been in Amsterdam before, but with his house band Kojak. This Saturday he’ll come through with his disco (from Razor-N-Tape) and French-house repertoire to light up the Canvas with bright colors. Alongside him Closed Paradise will be there, making the party full circle. Finally Jois is present as well, providing the house cuts.
