Queen Cassy at King’s Night

Apr 7, 2014 |  by  |  Music

Normally I interview DJs whom I’ve seen at a gig, and that I’d like to get to know a little better. This time I had the opportunity to interview Cassy. I’ve never seen her at a gig before, but as far as I’m concerned she sure has some personality. (..more)

Local Rockstars: Tom Trago in reverse

Oct 17, 2013 |  by  |  Event, Music, Spots

From all the Amsterdam based DJs I interviewed, Tom Trago is probably the one that needs the least introduction. He has travelled all over the world, runs his own label, Voyage Direct, and is now awarded to be Trouw’s resident of the month. Next to all this Tom also made time to produce his new album ‘The Light Fantastic’, which will be released on October 21th. I got a tiny little bit of his spare time to ask him some questions.

Leaving Fusion Festival in Germany for a few hours just to do an awesome gig with some friends at one of Holland's most popular techno festivals, Awakenings.

Cottoncake is a dream come true

Cottoncake was born over a year ago out of a dream. But Jorinde and Tessa didn't want to start just another fancy shop, they wanted to create one with a special feeling that would envelope you like a warm blanket when you entered. The influences that were to inspire Cottoncake's perfect cappuccinos and beautiful fabrics were to come from all over the world and come together to make a dream reality. Now there's food, fashion and art all in one shop. (..more)

Local Rockstars: Raaf's Amsterdam dream

Local Rockstars: Raaf’s Amsterdam dream

Nov 20, 2012 |  by  |  Music

The American dream is happening right here in Amsterdam. Fortune and fame seems to be in becoming a DJ nowadays, and it is everybody’s new passion. But how to distinguish yourself? What make’s you a proper DJ? And who decides that? But most of all, what is the road like to get there in the first place? For all my questions I met up with Raven Verhoef. Known as DJ Raaf, a 22 year old Amsterdam based DJ who was mentioned in an interview before with Milan Meyberg as ‘one to watch’. What’s there about him besides his sets and baby blue eyes? And how is he planning his ‘Amsterdam dream’? (..more)
