VBX have already got heads turning with the first announcement from their extra special ADE 2018 series, and now the esteemed promoters complete the line-ups for their four essential events with names like tINI & Molly, Makcim, Dyed Soundorom, Voigtmann, Praslesh, Francesco Del Garda, Fumiya Tanaka and more all playing various vital venues from 18th to 20th October.
Things kick off on Thursday 18th at BRET with the trendsetting tINI & The Gang headed up by the boss herself along with Molly, who also brings some on-point tech house vibes next to Moscow-born-Dutch resident Makcim who always fuels the party spirit with his intoxicating and powerful sets, mixing house and techno to create refreshingly deep grooves. Studio and DJ partnership Pelle & Roon also bring their expertly reduced minimal techno to make this a fantastic opening affair.
On the 19th at Warehouse Elementenstraat, the already announced showcase with huge international talents Ricardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler, Zip, Sonja Moonear, Steve Rachmad, Nicolas Lutz and Spokenn (Ferro & Reiss) is the only place to be.
On Saturday morning of October 20th, it is the annual ADE after-hours at BRET, when masters of groove-like Frenchman Dyed Soundorom (best known for being one part of globetrotting DJ outfit and label bosses Apollonia) and minimal specialist and cult deep digging DJ Voigtmann, who releases on Hello? Repeat and Yumé, all line-up. Also in on the action is Max Yaahs, a German who co-runs the much loved HardWorkSoftDrink label, which is responsible for some of the slickest electronic house tunes of recent years, with Makcim and Reiss also playing to make sure you keep on dancing well into the daytime.
Finally, it’s to Shelter on Saturday 20th evening for one big closing event with the legendary Romanian minimal pioneers Praslesh aka Raresh & Praslea who are real heroes that cook up stripped back grooves and atmospheric sound worlds in which you can really get lost. Francesco Del Garda, who mixes up UK garage, classic house, weird techno and slippery electro when in the booth also plays, and Japan’s revered Fumiya Tanaka brings his highly sophisticated, simple but devastatingly effective techno with Ferro and Kristina rounding things out.
This is set to be a superb series of parties in some of Amsterdam’s finest venues, all with carefully programmed line-ups that perfectly compliment each other and make for unmissable action.
