And that’s #100! Before we introduce our jubilee artist we would like to thank all you listeners of our mixtape series, and for sharing the love and spreading the word. Thanks to you we have been rapidly growing as an organisation in the last year. We hope you have just as much pleasure in listening to the next 100 mixtapes.
This time we bring you Dutchie Bas Amro, a young blood who has’s made it clear that he’s here to stay. Bas started producing at the age of 12 and bought his first set of decks at his 14th, but inspite him being relatively young, you won’t hear this in his sets and productions. Amro is highly influenced by the roots of the Chicago and Detroit sound. Which gained him respect and support by cats like Michel de Hey, Gorge, Jimpster, Pezzner, Benny Rodrigues, Darko Esser and Quince. The list gets bigger with every new endeavor he engages in.
Bas Amro his sound is hard to describe. His tracks are oldskool but modern, they’re deep but dancefloor-effective and though he doesn’t limit himself to one style, he’s definitely no trendhopper. While producing house, deep house, tech-house and even techno, all his productions (released on imprints such as Save Room and Freerange Records) have something in common that constitute a sophisticated sound from he Enschede-based artist.
