About the author
I’ve been a music hoarder all my life and it was I who coined the phrase: ‘Every genre has something to offer’ (patent pending). My main infatuations are House, Disco, Jazz, Funk, Hip Hop and every subgenre in between. As long as the tunes spark up a euphoric feeling. Writing about Music expresses my passion for the art.

Too many plans for the weekend? Let me narrow your options down 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’.

Friday: Disco Nights: Paradise Garage (Gay Pride) @ Roest

“Take me back to the Garage in New York!” One of the few legendary clubs that assisted the rise of house music. It was a place of freedom for minority cultures, such as afro-americans and the LBGTs. In light of Gay Pride this weekend, Roest takes you back to the heydays where disco started blending into house music and where everybody was treated the same, regardless of your gender, skin color or sexual preference. Take in the vibe and keep it in mind for the rest of your life! To get a feel of what happened there, I’ve added a mix from Paradise Garage resident and house pioneer Larry Levan below.

Saturday: KemetSoul Records Presents Afro Deep Sessions @ Undercurrent

Dave Anthony takes his deep afro label KemetSoul down to the Undercurrent this Saturday. With AtJazz headlining, the decks are gonna get a good spin and from the speakers deep, percussion-heavy and sexy house tunes will be played, strictly with that groove. AtJazz has been playing records in the Dam a few times, but never in an afro-inclined setting, so it’ll be interesting to see him give fuse to his distinctive deep house sound with the afro vibes. Save yourself some money and cop your tickets here.

Sunday: Roy Ayers @ Melkweg

The legend returns! This man has pioneered the jazz-funk sound in his time and still finds an audience nowadays that’s still feeling the unparalleled vibe of his music. Roy Ayers has been and always will be important to music culture, whether it’s him working together with artists like Tyler the Creator on his last two albums, Cherrybomb and Flower Boy, to his sampling influence on both hip-hop and house. What better way to end your Sunday with tunes like Everybody Loves The Sunshine?
