For our final installment in the DGTL podcast series, we present you two of Exploited’s finest: Adana Twins. On the 20th of april, on the second day of DGTL Festival, the Twins will be playing at the Phono Stage, together with the likes of Finnebassen and our very own Prunk. Their mix goes deeper than deep, and is packed with new tunes and tastes of future releases. Warning: listening to this podcast will make the wait for DGTL Festival 2014 even harder…
4 years shy into their first breakthrough, Adana Twins formed out of Take It Easy and Friso and raveled the dance music industry into a twister that spun around their music in accordance to labels such as Exploited, Jackmode, Baalsaal Records and their very own born and raised Jeudi Records. Their most prominent release “Everyday”, welcomed also on Exploited Records, has a legacy of little over two years and bumped the name of Adana Twins onto a different hierarchy as the record found itself in the playlists of almost every known and unknown DJ on the planet, toping Beatport & Resident Advisor charts for quite some time. The hit lead them onto remixing tracks onto other well-known labels such as 2DIY4, Get Physical, Noir and several others.
Their approach to music is a somewhat lethal combination of influences ranging from real school hip hop legends like Black Star & Dilated Peoples, to techno and house. Each year the duo pulls out of their goodie bag hit after hit in the form of a collaboration with the likes of Digitaria, Robosonic or Kruse & Nuernberg, continuing to impress both the public and peers.
After a succesful first edition last year, DGTL will return on April 19 and 20 with its long-awaited (now two-day!) spring festival at the NDSM Docklands. With 81 first-class DJs lined up, the organization is set on breaking some records, including its own, and treat Amsterdam to one of the first big highlights of the festival season. So what can we expect music wise? Well there’s something for everybody’s taste, but quality will of course be the common factor that binds the festival. Expect soulful, funky tunes at the Crew Love area (Soul Clap, Wolf + Lamb, Pillowtalk), rough tech-house at the Digital Stage (Jamie Jones, Hot Since 82, Pan-Pot) or go deeeep at the Phono Stage (Finnebassen, Adana Twins, Prunk). In total there are six stages, each with its own unique character and style.
