ADE comes back to Amsterdam for the 21st edition. It will take place between Oct 18th – 22nd and features numerous events but also workshops, conferences, interviews and more. The Amsterdam Dance Event is the place to be at for any dance music fans and also for individuals involved in the scene who just want to network and get their names out there. Of course ADE loves to feature up & coming talents so this TOP 10 ADE 2017 Chart has a few of them but also some way way back legendary acts like Inner City from Detroit and Laurent Garnier from France.
It’s easy to associate 2 cities like Detroit and Amsterdam where electronic music is almost like a religion. We did our best to include also a female producer, Nora En Pure, she will be performing in Amsterdam as well as rising star Pablo Fierro, also techno pioneer Kevin Saunderson and a few of the other artists featured below will be present in Amsterdam in October. Good listening and hopefully this selection will make you feel what’s next to come!
Inner City | Good Life 2017 | KMS
Good Life is a feel track originally released in 1989. When the staples of techno & House music were just being built. Inner city is a duo composed of Kevin Saunderson and Chicago artist Shanna Jackson.
Camelphat | Cola (Franky Rizardo remix) | Defected
Defected has a nose for success and when Cola by Camelphat came out this year 2017, that song was played by every single respectable DJ on the planet. British Duo Camelphat is easily one of the best breaking through artists of the moment and this Franky Rizardo interpretation is adding a nice spice to its original.
Laurent Garnier | 1-4 Docteur C’est Chouette | Kompakt
When French royalty meets German grandeur, “1-4 Docteur C’est Chouette” by Laurent was released by Kompakt this year and its quite a beauty. If you haven’t heard it or read his book, you haven’t lived. Here is an extract: “As a DJ and someone who loves to dance. I have experienced moments of pure joy when I felt that I’d be happy to die there, in that moment” Electrochoc
Nora En Pure | Waves | Ernormous Tunes
South African born Swiss based Nora en Pure doesn’t need to convince anyone of her talent as a producer. Nora is no pretentious diva but instead a hard working artist running her radio show Purified every month and her own label Enormous Tunes.
Dennis Cruz | Get Freaky | Stereo
Dennis Cruz proudly representing the tech house scene of Spain around the world. His tune “Get Freaky” is a bomb. The groove is uplifting and the tune is over all fun and with a funky edge into it.
Lane 8 & Kidnap Kid | Aba (Yotto Remix) | Ajunadeep
When Lane 8, Kidnap Kid and Yotoo meet with Ajunjadeep, the result is stunning. Those psychedelic vocals are off the hook, the bassline is warm the drums are strong. This is a lovely remix by Yotto.
Nihil Young aka Less Hate | My Friend | Frequenza
Out of Italy, Nihil runs that really cool label named Frequenza records, “My Friend” was premiered earlier this year on DHL. Play this tune once and it will stick in your head for good, quite addictive.
Pablo Fierro | La Palma | Innervision
Afro House is still on the rise and Spanish artist Pablo Fierro has definitely something to do with it! This tune signed on Innervision has done some serious damage on many dancefloors around the world.
The Scumfrog – Spin (Simone Vitullo remix) | Go Deeva
Simone distinctive sound is quite a nice mixture of different genres. He can go deep house, funky, tech-house and much more. Another hard working individual who devotes a lot to discovering new talents for his label Go Deeva records.
Guardate | Plata O Plomo | Nervous
If you ever watched Narcos, this will make you smile! Munich based artist Guardate nailed it with this epic bootleg, the guitar riff and the vocal will transport you to Medellin, Colombia…the home of Pablo Escobar!
