Report: De School’s De Zomernacht

Last weekend, on Saturday July 2nd, we had a look inside De School’s new recurring ‘De Zomernacht’ special. With near perfect sets from Somewhen and Roi Perez (Ostgut Ton) on the first round – the venue has so-far made a solid start at rekindling the spontaneous spirit of Amsterdam’s fringe nightlife. For those unfamiliar with De School’s new program ‘De Zomernacht’ – its a summer special that masks the lineup a few days up to the event, in order to catalyze spontaneity vital for a proper party.

Weimar Imprint Giegling Prepare For Amsterdam Showcase At NDSM-Wharf

The story of the Weimar-based Giegling imprint is one that’s difficult to grasp. Starting only a few years ago, the club-turned-label came up with a series of one outstanding release after another. It is is run by a handful of artists who forged their friendship at a Weimar nightclub from which the label takes its name. This band of uncompromising creative minds also account for pretty much all of the releases on the label. They landed on our radar indefinitely after their earth-shattering label night on the mighty Tanzwüste/Tanzwiese stage at Fusion Festival in 2014. They were also voted the ... Read more
