21.03.2017 Gallery | Mathis Neuhaus: Being able to tell a consecutive and coherent story is a challenging task. This rings true for literature, music, the menu in a restaurant or a certain place where all of this and more comes together.

08.03.2017 Club | Luc Mastenbroek: The moment I'm writing this I'm in a night bus on a bumpy road, leaving Belo Horizonte. Thoughts drifting back to a moment in an open air museum earlier today, where, after a power-cut of several hours, the dots reconnected right at the moment we walked into the most beautiful audio installation.

06.03.2017 Gallery | Mathis Neuhaus: Being based in Switzerland makes design a very visible and important element of everyday life. Of course, the disciplines vary from graphic to industrial to product design (among others), but they are united by high principles, a distinct sense for quality and a certain approach to the question of aesthetics.

02.03.2017 Concert | Mathys Rennela: It's hard to separate Oko Ebombo's personal life from his art, whether it involves dance, photography, motion pictures, poetry or music. In preparation for his upcoming live performance at De School, I sat with Oko on a parisian terrasse to discuss about his music and his life in Paris.

01.03.2017 Club | Alex Rigby: As JP Enfant’s first all-nighter at DS nears, we sat down with the techno artist to discuss the nature of extended sets and his upcoming projects.

21.02.2017 Club | Mathis Neuhaus: Collective memory can be fascinating. There are people, places and things in this world that are so excessively depicted (in the cinema, the news, the television) that there is simply no way around them. Being unbiased is an impossibility.

18.02.2017 Club | Jack Dolan: As a DJ without a physical release it’s very difficult to make an impact. It’s a bit of a chicken and egg situation. Without your own music which defines your style, bookers don’t know what they’re in for. The only way you stand a chance is if you have a history behind you but how do you get there if you can’t get a good booking in the first place?

15.02.2017 Club | Emma van Meyeren: In his famous 1982 essay “War Making and State Making as Organized Crime”, sociologist Charles Tilly discusses the intrinsic ties between European state formation and war. In opposition to the idea that war is a state of exception, Tilly shows that war is always-already implied in the foundation of the European nation-state.

10.02.2017 Club | Mathis Neuhaus: What defines and creates suspense? Not knowing everything about a certain situation, but longing to learn everything about it, one could say. It is induced by sparing out and to be actively creating suspense means to create dependence.

08.02.2017 Club | Mathis Neuhaus: There are many ways to achieve freedom – even if it is only for a while. Some scream, some dance, some run. Some, as in the case of the so-called Aeronauts in rural China, fly. Or, to be more precise, aspire to fly.

25.01.2017 Concert | Mathys Rennela: All art is propaganda and ever must be. The reknown sociologist W.E.B du Bois made this bold claim in a 1926 essay about Black art.

20.01.2017 Club | Tammo Hesselink: We are seeing growing interest in the West Coast sound of Holland for quite some years now. A scene which has been around for nearly forever had been doing its own thing and never compromised.

10.01.2017 Club | Luc Mastenbroek: A week ago today we celebrated our one-year anniversary by sharing cake, birthday wishes and memories of the past year. Two days before the celebration we rounded off 2016 with a twenty-five hour New Year’s Day party that left us with weeks of positive vibes.

10.01.2017 Café | Mathis Neuhaus: It has often been said that art possesses the quality to change the world. There is, of course, a fair share of hope and optimism stirred into this phrase, but current times could need more of both.

04.01.2017 Gallery | Mathis Neuhaus: Donna Verheijden looks beneath the surface. Surfaces, to be precise. Beneath all those which are super-HD, super-glossy, super-flat. Music videos, commercials and pop cultural images that are part of our collective memory are her objects of investigation. In her work she tries to decode them, because usually we don’t.

31.12.2016 Café | Alise Akimova: A healthy and delicious breakfast is more then essential in case you plan on dancing until the light of days. To start off the New Year, brunch accompanied by friends and loved ones is the way to do it just right.

14.12.2016 Gallery | Floor van Hulsen: It’s 08:00 on a Monday morning. As I try to concentrate on my blog I’m constantly distracted by my Facebook inbox, Whatsapp messages and emails that keep coming in. And as if that wasn’t enough, I don’t pay for my Spotify account so commercials pollute my heart-felt playlist.

08.12.2016 Club | Luc Mastenbroek: Traditionally January is the month for deejay holidays. During the summer break, there’s non-stop festivals, and now the festival plot ever thickens (I believe Dutch festival seasons runs from March to November), the only month to go to Bali is right at the start of the year.

01.12.2016 Café | Mathis Neuhaus: Let’s face it: our attention span has seen better times. Over the last years it did not extend. Rather, the opposite is the case. While reading a text on the Internet, the eyes drift off to other open tabs in the browser, a movie is paused to quickly check new emails and messages and a book is almost always competing with some screen that glows nearby.

29.11.2016 Club | Mathis Neuhaus: Time flies when you are having fun. Which is probably one of the reasons why the last eleven months gone by so swiftly. Stories have been told about the still-wet color on the dancefloor’s walls during the opening days in January. These days you already find little scribblings, messages and codes all over the place.

26.11.2016 Club | Jasmin Hoek: It's 2016 and all-male lineups are still the norm. Which is strange, for me at least, because gender doesn't play a role in my taste in music.

24.11.2016 Café | Ben Rogerson: Since its birth, De School has been in a constant catch up with its own expectations. Its continual progression can be characterised by every facet, whether it’s in the club or the gym or an exhibition or the restaurant or café.

22.11.2016 Het Gymlokaal | Een paar weken geleden hadden we tijdens ADE voor het eerst een gloednieuw toernooi in Het Gymlokaal - namelijk een zaalvoetbaltoernooi samen met Resident Advisor voor het goede doel Help Refugees. Dit is ons zo goed bevallen, dat we een maandelijks terugkerende sportdag gaan organiseren; toepasselijk genaamd De Sportdag.

19.11.2016 Club | Jasmin Hoek: You know those DJs that have a jealous making ability to blend everything seamlessly together? That kind of DJ is Josey Rebelle. Without you even noticing, the question “Wait, wasn’t I listening to something different two seconds ago?” keeps on popping up in your head while listening to her sets.

16.11.2016 Club | Jasmin Hoek: In anticipation of De School’s special trance night, I met up with Joeri Woudstra, better known as Torus. You will probably recognize Torus from either his music released under the Rwina record label, or his legendary performance at Lowlands last year, or even a more recent project: his Red Light Radio trance special, Green Laser Radio.

15.11.2016 Club | Jack Dolan: A friend once described drum & bass to me as 'the genre that refuses to die'. This was clearly meant as a cutting remark, and I admit it tickled me quite a lot but it also occurred to me that it could be taken as a compliment.

13.11.2016 Club | Mathis Neuhaus: What is it that defines a dance floor? One could argue for the necessity of certain obvious elements like a booth, a booming sound system or just any, in the sense of the word, floor that provides enough space to dance. But then again, at some point everyone certainly made the experience of a functioning dance floor without any of the above stated factors given and without any of the above stated factors missed.

06.11.2016 Club | Floor van Hulsen: On the 13th of October the first edition of Tijdgenoten was opened in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum. The four works on display were all made by artist Mohamed Bourouissa and are called: Screenshot, Legend, All-In and La Valeur Du Produit. The opening night could be described as an earlier art opening where Andy Warhol, Madonna, Basquiat and Keith Haring would also be perfectly able to entertain themselves.

03.11.2016 Club | Luc Mastenbroek: December last year we were still awaiting our final license, the room that was supposed to become a restaurant looked like an old classroom filled up with trash, and it actually was. There was no stove yet in the restaurant, no sound in the club, and no heating in the office.

01.11.2016 Club | Alex Rigby: In light of their Indigo Aera label turning 5 years old, De School residents Jasper Wolff & Maarten Mittendorff recently released an intriguing project named Lost Archives which compiles their most prized techno finds to date.
