Up In The Air: Santé & Sidney Charles

On Saturday September 29th we arrived in London to join Santé and Sidney Charles on that weekend’s mini-tour. The starting point was Kent’s The Social Festival, an event we’ve always wanted to check out. With a star studded line up awaiting us, we left with full excitement. When we arrived, we ran into the boys directly, as if they knew we were coming; both smiling from ear to ear, excited for their sets as always. The stage was a Caravan surrounded by trees, creating a very intimate setting and the boys had it going. Then, Emanuel Satie decides to jump ... Read more

Nachtcollege Celebrating Two-Year Anniversary At Central Studios

But within that timespan organizations have risen to some of the most popular and familiar-sounding parties in and outside of this city through simple and rock-solid concepts that seem to correspond to the wants of today’s clubbers rather well.

Perhaps not as synonymous with Amsterdam, but definitely comparable to these names at the moment is Nachtcollege, who have had an astronomical rise of their own since they started exactly two years ago. ...

Now, he says, he still lives in Paris and still buys up to 15 bits of vinyl a week. But these days, he’s actually the ... Read more
