Friday the 27th, also known as third Christmas day, the warehouse space of Dhoem Dhaam in Amsterdam Noord prepares itself for the 9th edition of Amsterdam success night UK Sounds. This time the organization booked Waze & Odyssey as their headliner next to A Lister, previously booked hero Oli furness and the very talented Samuel Deep. Alongside are the UK Sounds residents Alexander Valentijn, Jimmy van Esch and Prunk. UK Sounds has all the ingredients of a present day quality nightlife concept with international appeal where the music is central to the event. Apart from that, the location couldn’t have been better suited for this gruesome party, because Dhoem Dhaam offers the raw, stripped-out warehouse vibe that you would expect at the better underground garage/house parties in London or Manchester.
That UK Garage – Deep House – Bass is the sound of today is a fact that little music trend watchers will deny. The old school heavy basses as known from the early Chicago – San Francisco jacking house sound and the mid nineties speed garage era is subject to a true revival and is 100% hot right now. The genre is fueled with different sub styles by the likes of (indeed) Waze & Odyssey or De Sluwe Vos, Darius Syrossian, Detroit Swindle, Dale Howard or Eats Everything. The sound is filled with classic house sounds and samples and brings together a public of like-minded music lovers, from youngsters and hipsters, to the matured house connoisseurs.
