Dutch readers will be delighted to hear the news that DJ Mag is set to launch a Dutch version of the magazine.
Albeit a cliched phrase, AIR is the phoenix that rose from the ashes of Amsterdam’s legendary club iT, which ran from 1989 to 2002. Occupying an address in the centre of the Dutch capital, April 2016 will mark six years in the game for the venue, which places the emphasis on sound quality and spectacle, attracting the great and good of both underground and more commercial artists.
Although the list could go on, and on, the past year has seen the likes of Damian Lazarus, The Martinez Brothers, Ben Pearce, Jazzy Jeff, Gabriel Ananda, DJ EZ, Pete Tong’s ADE session, Jackmaster, Tiesto, Kolsch, Sidney Charles, DJ T, PBR Streetgang and Hannah Wants touchdown here. Not to mention a Skrillex, Martin Garrix, Carnage and Oliver Heldens back-to-back bonanza as part of a Kingsland afterparty; and AIR’s own fifth birthday, which, fittingly, lasted for five days.
Divided into three distinct areas, the biggest sees clubbers given free reign over a sizable split-level room, whilst the second two offer more intimate environs to get down and dirty in. Powered by ever-impressive VOID systems, you can also expect state-of-the-art lighting and a mind-boggling LED wall.
Amsterdam nightclub Studio 80 will see a change of owners in January of 2016.
Duncan Stutterheim, who founded ID&T (which is now owned by SFX Entertainment), has sold the venue to owners of Bloemenbar Nachtcafé and Disco Dolly, Resident Advisor reports.
It's well-publicised that the Dutch are obsessed with house, techno and EDM (and let's not forget the insanity that is hardstyle). Sadly though, one particular genre that often gets overlooked is drum & bass; that's not because the country doesn't have a scene, far from it in fact, but in the shadow of behemoths it's easy to disappear.
