Before we could even announce the full ADE line-up at Trouw, our Trouw at Concertgebouw event was sold out within a couple of hours. On Friday October 18th Henrik Schwarz will play with Het Nederlands Kamerorkest, whilst DARKSIDE will make it’s official Dutch debut in the Grand Hall of Het Concertgebouw. Support comes from Trouw resident Patrice Bäumel who will do a modern reinterpretation of Steve Reich’s ‘Drumming’.
If you didn’t manage to get a ticket, don’t worry because there’s an exciting line-up at Trouw itself during Amsterdam Dance Event as well. For five straight days, you can enjoy an excellent line-up of some of our favourite club nights, labels and international partners. Both Trouw’s national residents, such as Sandrien, Makam, Tom Trago and Cinnaman, will shine next to foreign artists such as Julio Bashmore, Dixon, Âme, Mano Le Tough, Rødhåd and John Talabot. Like last year Dutch labels Clone, Delsin and Rush Hour will come together on Friday October 18th.
We kick off Amsterdam Dance Event with Colors on Wednesday October 16th. Colors recently celebrated their 3rd birthday and kept surprising their audience with new acts and big headliners. During ADE they make room for the British Julio Bashmore who invited his friends Kowton and Funkineven. Bashmore is well-known for his club hits, while Kowton’s star is rising. He recently released his EP Mirrored Song on Bashmore’s record label Boardwalk Records. The Londoner Funkineven is known for his diversity and likes to treat his audience to the entire house spectrum. Currently, he is best buddies with Kyle Hall and together they started a new project called: FunkinEvil. Obviously there is no Colors without Cinnaman. The big man behind Colors will turn our basement upside down, because he will play in De Verdieping all night long.
On Thursday, October 17th Trouw is all about Innervisions. With the Lost In A Moment-weekend still fresh in our memory, we can’t wait to give our best friends from Berlin all the creative space they need. In the upper floor we welcome newcomer Konstantin Sibold and South African pride Culoe de Song. Last year, both have released many instant hits on Innervisions. No one knows who is behind Ten Walls, but its Gotham EP is already a big summer hit at all the clubs and festivals. Ten Walls’ live act at Trouw is an absolute first. Naturally, Innervisions founder and label boss Dixon, who finds himself in exceptional shape this year, provides the final set.
In De Verdieping we get to see a completely different - and for Dutch standards somewhat new - side of Innervisions, namely techno! Gerd Janson already did some very successful techno sets in the Berghain and Âme’s Kristian will also do a techno set this time around. Of all live sets Trouw has had in the past year, the staff was most impressed by Recondite. He’s known for his releases on Dystopian, but also has some new work on Innervisions. Subsequently, Alex.Do (like Recondite and Rødhåd also one of the emerging Berlin Dystopian collective) will do the closing set in De Verdieping.
Friday October 18th is a very special evening and perhaps one of the most remarkable evenings of Amsterdam Dance Event 2013. Besides Trouw at Concertgebouw, the Netherlands’ biggest and best labels of recent years will host one evening together once again. Of course we are talking about Clone, Delsin and Rush Hour. The line-up for this evening is great, because each label will put their heavyweights on the stage: Antal, Xosar live, Serge, Tom Trago live, Gerd, KiNK live, Delta Funktionen, Alden Tyrell live, Conforce, Legowelt live and A Made Up Sound. Tom Trago will be performing his new album 'The Light Fantastic' live. Last year this evening was hailed by the international press for its quality and we expect at least as much fireworks this year.
Resident Advisor, the world’s largest independent online magazine for electronic music, hosts the night of Saturday October 19th. For this edition they have brought together a diverse line-up with the stars of the future mixed with cult heroes. The Berlin-based Belgian Peter van Hoesen and Berghain's rising star Rødhåd will stand side-by-side with our techno heroine Sandrien. These three know each other exceedingly well and form a team that takes on all Saturday night and the early hours on Sunday effortlessly.
In De Verdieping RA puts a diverse mix of sounds and talents together. Still unknown to many, but for others a local hero: Young Marco. This year he amazed many alongside DJ Harvey. The German Motor City Drum Ensemble don’t have to travel far since he lives in Utrecht and always provides us with energetic classic house and disco sets. Terre Theamlitz aka DJ Sprinkles comes from Japan and enjoys cult status among many lovers of timeless house (and ambient) tracks since the 90s. Mr. Ties has been a phenomenon in Berlin for a while and is known for his intense all day - all night gay parties under the name ‘Homopatik’. We’re glad to have him over because as you might expect from us lately, we will not close our doors on Saturday and we go on into Monday!
Following the evening of Resident Advisor, Red Bull Music Academy presents a special Amsterdam Dance Event edition of Trouw op Zondag on October 20th. We will begin at 8am on Sunday and no one knows what time we will stop on Monday. These intense hours will completely be in the spirit of Trouw’s residents, good friends and some unexpected surprises! You may count on: Jean Pierre Enfant, Nuno Dos Santos, Melon, Job Jobse, Patrice Bäumel, Olaf Boswijk, San Proper, Makam, Boris Werner and William Kouam Djoko alongside our good friends John Talabot, Mano Le Tough, San Soda and Hunee. If you ask us, this is an all star line-up that will make the Trouw op Zondag atmosphere complete.
