Would You Get This Super Fan Tattoo?

There’s really not much to be said here…what we’ve got is simple: a guy with a tattoo that says “Seth Troxler b2b The Martinez Brothers”. I can’t quite make out the location of the ink (leg maybe…there might be a kneecap in there somewhere) but, regardless, a keen eyed Seth Troxler took to his twitter account and posted the masterpiece, looking for its owner. Apparently Troxler has been in contact with the owner of said tat, who will no doubt be lavished with perks for the undying love of all things Tuskegee (the label Troxler runs alongside TMB)

De Marktkantine Announces Headliner-Filled Spring Program

De Marktkantine, the familiar club at Amsterdam’s Jan van Galenstraat, has been open for one and a half years now. The collective of promoters and dance scene veterans behind the club set a common goal to turn it into a prominent nightlife venues, in-tune with the latest developments in underground dance, while not shying away from the odd surprise in its program either. While some promising nights at the club were met with disappointing ticket sales, other events saw the venue reach its full potential, like the pandemonium witnessed during Ame B2B Job Jobse, the Innervisions label night with Dixon or the sweet chaos created by the eclectic Mr. ...

Snowbombing Podcast By Groove Armada

Millennials grew up with their time-abiding melodies. They combined the styles of house and trip hop with alluring vocals and the element of Andy’s trombone into what became a decade of their reign throughout the charts. They were one of the first, among Faithless, Moby, and Massive Attack, who established a dance music act playing with a live set up, and what is now widely exercised by a variety of big contemporary electronic music artists.

Interview: Tensnake

Tensnake made his name with the huge 2010 dancefloor smash hit ‘Coma Cat’, and since then has been in ever increasing demand. When Tensnake first appeared on the scene, his early releases were seen as a welcome antidote to the omnipresent minimal house scene of the time. Effortlessly managing the elusive feat of marrying classic disco and house influences to a contemporary sound, Tensnake is in that very rare position where his music appeals equally to the biggest dancefloors, from Ibiza and Miami, to real chin-stroking aficionados. Considered a “producer’s producer”, Tensnake’s music effortlessly transcends genres, showing a musical intellect ... Read more

Preview: STRAF_WERK Warehouse Closing feat. Martinez Brothers, Joris Voorn

Straf_Werk decided to firmly disregard New Year’s Eve again, by hosting a cheeky banger of a party the previous day, promising visitors to be slightly hung-over even before New Year’s has set in. For their biggest closing party yet, Straf_werk moves to a new venue, the great Scheepsbouwloods, with a line up worth the counterweight of the New Year hype, including Joris Voorn, Martinez Brothers, Tensnake, Huxley, Richy Ahmed and more.  The decision to celebrate the year with a Closing party on December 30th was made by the Straf_Werk team consciously three years ago, since they found New Year’s Eve “the most over-hyped, expensive, anti-climactic wash out of ...

Festival Report: Mysteryland

I walked into the massive Floriadeterrein for my first Mysteryland experience around 3pm on Saturday, August 29 (I wasn’t in attendance on Sunday, although it should be worth noting 2015 was the first year the event went “weekender”) and, for better or worse, was immediately struck by its immense scale and production. Over my year living in Holland, most of my festival experiences have come by way of NDSM or boutique-style festivals in the form of Buiten Westen, Open Air, and Dekmantel. Mysteryland was different, not only for its scale, but for its musical diversity (everything from House and Techno to Hard Style, ... Read more
