Pan-Amafropeans: Afrobot invites at OT301
Afrobot is an amazing selector of African and tropical music on Red Light Radio. This evening he will invite one of Istanbul’s most loved collectors, Baris K and Tako to OT301. Tako runs Red Light Records and is the big secret behind lots of tropical and obscure vinyl findings that are dug up and spread in clubs by some of Amsterdam’s finest DJs.
Delusions of Grandeur at Canvas
Canvas has an amazing line-up during every single ADE night, but I think this one might be the one that needs more explanation. Delusions of Grandeur is a small house label from London releasing some of the best underground talents like Session Victim and Uffe. Good house music guaranteed.
22tracks: 6 Year Anniversary at Waterkant
For me personally it is a special week too. My music platform22tracks was officially launched during ADE in 2009. Now every year since, we have celebrated our anniversary, dined with our DJ’s and met up with some great labels, artists and friends. We always host intimate and free entry parties during ADE. Inviting some of our favorite DJs from Amsterdam, Brussels, London and Paris to come play, it’s gonna be absolutely jammed. This will provide as a perfect warming up party if you’re planning to visit more parties later on the same evening.
Before you go crazy at ADE, I have discovered some tracks that you can warm up too:
◇ Mixtape discovery
◇ House track discovery
◇ R&B Track discovery
◇ Hip Hop discovery
◇ Album discovery
