Wonderland Festival Podcast #002 by Karmon

The second special podcast for Wonderland Festival comes from the hands of the Dutch deep house star Karmon. On February 15, this true artist will surely be setting the dance floor on fire with one of his characteristic & hypnotizing sets. Drumming on all kinds of household equipment and jamming on the guitar until his fingers hurt, it was pretty clear that a path into music was set. When and how was not yet clear at that time. It was in 2003 that Karmon came into contact with electronic music through his older brother. At that time he experimented with different ... Read more

Wonderland Festival Podcast #001 by Sidney Charles

“Everybody, who understands this love-binding kind of music, has to live the urban movement behind it, the culture that brings people of all kinds together.” We have a very special mix waiting for you, made by a highly skilled German DJ/producer. His name is Sidney Charles, and at the age of twenty-something he already looks into uncountable happy faces when he enters the DJ booth. He is not a musician, nor a percussionist. He is a collector. A collector of culture and experiences. The energy and feeling around his collection of music is what makes the difference and letting Sidney ... Read more

There’s a Wonderland at the End of the Rabbit Hole

Saturday February 15th, a new winter festival is born when Verknipt and Deep House Amsterdam are joining forces to create Wonderland Festival. For no less than 16 hours (from 4pm until 8am) Westerunie, Westerliefde and Transformatorhuis in Amsterdam’s cultural Westerpark are turned into a promised land with the best in deep house and techno.

Verknipt has made a name for itself in a short period of time by organising parties ... Read more

Mix #032 by Luis Leon

I, Lex van Aken, had the honor meeting Luis Leon last summer in his country Peru. We both played there at a gig in Mancora and I loved the set he played. The music he makes and the sets he plays have something unique you don’t see very often. His passion is making music and the brilliance of his productions have also been noticed by some great international artists. MANIK played his new upcoming track ‘Love is a Lie’ upcoming on Double Tree Records at Fabric, London and this track also has gotten some early support from H.O.S.H., Thugfucker, Finnebassen, Climbers, Blond:ish, ...

Exclusive interview with Karmon

Last week we had the opportunity to do a little interview with Karmon, the man behind the latest Diynamic release together with NTFO and Betoko. His EP ‘Turning Point’ that got released a couple weeks earlier on ‘Sintope Digital’ was where it all started for Karmon. It literally was the turning point in his career. The Diynamic crew picked up his fresh sounds and we were curious how that all became reality. Listen to mix #016 by Karmon. ‘It’s not just a band or an artist that gives me the inspiration but a combination of all kinds of different elements’  ... Read more

Mix #012 by PONY

A year ago Kevin and Glenn decided to start a new project called PONY. As they were both playing Soulful Deep House Music and producing as well, Kevin and Glenn decided to do something together. That’s how PONY got into existence. Inspired by their hairstyle that they both had at that time, the name PONY arose. Together with Karmon, who you probably know from his track Turning Point, they define their music as Sjpez Music, which is a dialect for Space Music in ‘Limburg’, the south of Holland. Their Fine baselines with melodic synths at a low Bpm seem to really ... Read more
