Amsterdam Dance Event 2016

Amsterdam Dance Event 2016 is now only a month away, and we couldn’t be more excited! Every year the dance music world unites in October for 5 days of festivities, and panels to celebrate dance music, and showcase the hottest talents of today and tomorrow. This will be the fourth year we attend, and if you’ve never been, and you’d like to go, don’t think twice, do it!

We’re personally getting situated with who to see, what to do, and where to go, but we trust the music and city of Amsterdam will take good care of us. With names like Craig David, Oliver Heldens on the first night October  to set it off, and Sam Feldt, Yellow Claw, Chainsmokers, Tiesto, Netsky, and Martin Solveig to name a few, the event already sounds like a success. We’ll have your itinerary all sorted in the weeks leading up to it, and expect plenty of Facebook live interviews while we’re out there!

Videos | Watch the Official Trailer For the I Am Hardwell: Living The Dream Documentary

Hardwell’s career can briefly be described as a whirlwind of success, but his new documentary I Am Hardwell – Living the Dream gives us a detailed look into the life of one of the biggest DJs in the world. Following Hardwell through his solo tour, as he visits 34 cities around the world, the documentary masterfully captures the true energy of a Hardwell show. The film’s trailer was premiered at Amsterdam Dance Event, followed by screenings in his home country of the Netherlands. Directed by Robert Piree, the same director of the 2013 documentary I Am Hardwell, the film takes a look at the Dutch producer’s start in DJing through his continued international success and ever-evolving artistic and musical visions.

DO SOMETHING

Events, Featured | Countdown to ADE Spotlight: Kastle

Posted by on October 1, 2013

Today is October 1st, which means in 16 short days Fresh New Tracks will be jetting off to the Netherlands for ADE: Amsterdam Dance Event, a five-day electronic music festival, conference, and playground taking over the city. Leading up to ADE, we’ll be filling you in on just who and what we’re looking forward to seeing most. And if any of you out there have any insider tips on the best acts to catch, drop either VMan or myself a line and we’ll be sure to add it to our list. 

After browsing through the hundreds of artists set to play at ADE, Kastle’s name was the one that lingered with me the most. The producer//philosopher has beautifully maintained a characteristic, innovative sound over the period of his career thus far. If there’s any slight possibility you’ve found yourself unacquainted with Kastle and his work (which really shouldn’t be the case), then let us give you a little background. Kastle’s music tests the limits of art and expression, ranging all the way across the spectrum from electronic dub, garage, and house to R&B and hip-hop.  Kastle himself, also known as Barrett Richards, is in an artistic sense a renaissance man by constantly exploring the virtues of all forms of art and philosophy. Browsing his Facebook, you might stumble upon an assortment of great music along and thought-provoking quotations with corresponding photos. I’m particularly fond of his Tumblr, which is almost like a window into Kastle’s seemingly infinite pool of inspiration.

Kastle will be headlining the Plafonddienst showcase at The Sugar Factory Thursday, October 17th. Joining him will be Liar, one of the newest additions to Kastle’s very own label, Symbols Recordings, and Tourist of the UK. I’ve heard rumors of these artists putting on live sets that are high energy and perhaps different than their typical sound, so I’m pretty anxious to see what these guys throw down. Keeping my fingers crossed for the Ellie Goulding remix Kastle dropped just a few days ago… (which is available for free download!)

Whether or not you make it out to Amsterdam for the weekend, be sure to indulge in Kastle’s vast selection of free downloads and his full length, self-titled album. While you’re at it, check out this interview with MTVHive where Kastle pairs cocktails with tracks from his album. Cheers!

October 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20th,  for 5 days in October, Amsterdam is about to be taken over by the worldwide Dance community, along with Mimada, and yours truly! Both Mimada and I will be representing FNT, attending shows by DJ Shadow, Calvin Harris, Afrojack,  Tiesto, and many more! Over 50 venues spread out through out the Dutch city, will be hosting top notch producers and DJs, from happy hour to the early morning. Not only will we be attending shows, we will also be attending the ADE Playground and Conference, reporting and testing out all the new innovative technology that producers and DJs are using, along with listening to a list of panels on the current state of the EDM scene, and what can be done to move forward. Mimada and I will also be the first to know the top 100 DJ Mag list for 2013, as the list will be announced at the ADE!

FNT has always supported the EDM, Dance scene from the get, allowing many DJs and producers from all over the world to be introduced to the American market. We are proud to be attending the conference, and we look forward to partaking in this worldwide event. Oh, and if you plan on being in Amsterdam, go ahead and send us a tweet @VianneyIOU or @Zoecazal, see you all there!

DJ-Set, Electro | R3hab – ADE R3hab Showcase 2011

Posted by on October 13, 2011

If Avicii wasn’t so popular, I would say that R3hab would be the rising star of the year. He has released so many amazing original tracks on his own, remixes and collaborations this year, it is staggering. He is also able to keep a high level of quality with the quantity of tracks being released, which is hard to do. He has made the bleepy dutch sound accessible to many more people and is still evolving as an artist. The mix was made for Amsterdam Dance Event next weekend and all 15 of the songs in this hour long mix have been made this year. 2011 isn’t even over and he could do something huge in the next two months, but next year should be something else from him. Track list and a word about the mix from R3hab after the jump.
