During these hectic times, we want to share positive energy and be there for every music fan and the artist community. 💙
This initiative will also be an opportunity to raise money for the World Health Organisation fundraiser in response to COVID-19, as well as for the artists themselves.
This is the start of a series, so join us on the TicketSwap Facebook page every Thursday from 19:00 for melodic and groovy vibes, warming you up for the weekend.
30/04 - Joe Foxton
We start the Sessions with our friend Joe Foxton...
Drawing on two decades of selecting records from his hometown of Sydney, to his long time home of New York City, and to his new base in Amsterdam, Joe Foxton curates timeless deep music optimised for dancefloor hypnotism.
A longtime mainstay in the New York City scene, Joe played at all of the city's top venues from The Brooklyn Mirage to Output, while holding down a five-year residency at TBA Brooklyn. He was booked alongside top tier talent like Job Jobse, Ida Engberg, Tiga, and Sammy Dee, and shared his sound overseas at lauded clubs like About Blank in Berlin, and Revolver in Melbourne, Australia.
In 2019 he moved to The Netherlands to begin a new chapter, launching a new residency alongside Nicky Elisabeth (Kompakt) at Oosterbar, an intimate underground club. He’s now working on some new projects from his lair in Oost.
07/05 - Ultrastation
Imagine yourself, just another working day at interstellar space. You hop into your cosmic vehicle to zzzap from one universe to another. Turning on the atomic radio, you’re searching for a station that is on your wavelength. Between the fuzzy strangeness, you uncover something.
There it is... Ultrastation.
A cosmic gamma ray channel in which the whole spectrum of levitating subsonic sounds are intertwined with heart-rhythm oscillations. It fills the void inside you, ready for liftoff. Ultrastation, a newly formed duo consisting of Nuno dos Santos and Cosmic Force, is a radio station for interstellar space and their cosmonauts. Produced by two scientists who are specialized in Ultrasonic waves and subsonic consciousness.
After years spent hidden in their Telsa feeder Laboratory sending out all possible waves into the cosmos, here they are to present their music in form. Trippy techno, spaced out electro, quirky acid and everything between solidified channels is all to be expected from these two Dutch icons.
14/05 - Einmusik
Like a secret garden, a wide open playground, an undiscovered world – make sure you’re ready to take off to the future with Einmusik.
Einmusik’s music is not an industry secret, but still an undiscovered star in the growing universe of electronic sounds. No straight line to follow, no seasonal sound - his cosmos is too big to dive through it within an hour. Always lost between space and time. Always on the run, hard to catch. Sometimes the sounds are raw, sometimes dreamy and light-footed. Who wants to understand the music of Einmusik needs to go deeper. Listen a second time, breath a third time and throw away all your expectations. Only a few steady components, no easy schemes. House, techno, trance and breakbeats – everything flows into each other and ends up in a unique symbiosis.
21/05 - Angara
Mid-may, it will be the French duo Angara that will offer you a journey filled with emotion and energy.
Angara, a tale told by these two friends who have always been connected to each other by their musical sensibility. Resulting from a flavoured mixture of Deep Techno/House, Electro-Pop and various other influences, Loris & Quentin like to cross boundaries of genres, wishing to portray their own approach to the idea of evasion. In a DJ setup, they like playing their most appreciated influences, from Lane 8 to The Blaze, also including artists like Joris Voorn, Jon Hopkins, Jan Blomqvist, Bicep, Monkey Safari or Ben Bohmer.
28/05 - Unsilenced x White Choco
We are thrilled to host 3h of minimal music with 2 crews from Amsterdam and Barcelona. Get ready for some groovy vibes between house and minimal music.
We will start with Former (Unsilenced), a DJ duo created by two young french natives. Rotted on their love for house and techno, their discovery of the city minimal music landscape has shaped their sound. It's a refined combination of deep minimal mixed with raw house beats with the only purpose to make you dance.
Then it will be Tafu (Unsilenced) who will brighten up your living room: Amsterdam based Colombian DJ influenced by the Latin American house and techno scene. Tafu delivers an eclectic, groovy and emotional twist on music, without losing the raw and minimalistic style of authentic electronic.
Sebastian Poblete (White Choco) will close that evening. Living in Barcelona and part of Thood. Collective, Seb has come a long way from its original roots back in Peru. Over the past years Sebastian has played in some of the city's best venues such as Red58, Atipico, Casa Gracia or Checkpoint. Not only known for his eclectic DJ sets he has also released his very own productions in labels such as Ensis Black, Groundid or Saint & Dont. A real threat for your ears!
04/06 - Dubstone
