17.04.2020 Club | "With all our favourite places closed, it seems like the beautiful parks and nature in and around Amsterdam gets more appreciation than ever before. And even while not able to fully enjoy it, spring is in full swing outside; colourful flowers and pollen allergies included."

06.03.2020 Club | Our March weekender starts tonight and both JASSS and CEM play twice. Besides their own sets on Sunday, they'll be closing off our basement together tonight.

14.02.2020 Club | "I believe there is so much value in appealing to this rather unique sense of childlike play: a rarity in our modern lives. The sun rises, everyone is in a squishy pile around the room. Time to enjoy the unique grace of levity and meditative mindfulness!"

06.02.2020 Club | "Each one of my pieces is an exploration of a new experience for me, which is what experimentation is all about. After 10 years of making pop music and then dance music, I felt it necessary to let everyone know where my roots are. I struggle with being boxed in as one kind of artist or another and sometimes I have to assert the fact that genre classification is not only unnecessary when it comes to art, but is actually a damaging colonial practice (vague but perhaps more on that in the future)."

09.01.2020 Club | "Last few conversations we did more like a general music-we-like chit-chat, for this one, I thought it would be cool to go back to the making off format. A week ago, my roommate asked me: when do you take the time to really listen to a set that someone sends you? With all the lists, all the emails, all the mixes that people post etc., how can something stand out?"

24.12.2019 Gallery | "Amorfa immortal grew through a collision of the organic and the artificial that doesn’t necessarily clash or synthesize, but rather asks what happens when they cross pollinate."

17.12.2019 Other | On the 19th of December, various artists guide the listeners away from the daily distractions and into a contemplative state. Through music, it surveys the many forms that the now can take. But as obvious and given ‘the now’ seems, what do we mean when we talk about- or experience this now? Here on the blog, (perpetually in becoming) philosopher Aldo Kempen lifts a glimpse of the veil of the framing lecture that he will deliver on this night.

05.12.2019 Club | "I hate the idea of trying to recreate a magic time or a moment. There’s already some sort of expectation. It’s the same for me with playing; I never want to try to recreate something even if it worked well on the dancefloor."
