The first day of Amsterdam Dance Event 2011. I went to a lot of parties (while I still had the energy) and thus I have a lot of videos.
On the first day I visited the following parties: CLR @ Studio 80, Dr. Lektroluv @ Air, Bpitch @ Sugar Factory, Groove Armada @ Melkweg/Rabozaal and the Intec party @ Paradiso.
My good friend Marco Resmann was in town and whenever he's in town I join him during the night so this night was no exception.
He had to play at the party Midnight Freaks in Club Air, together with Barem.
The weekend starts here is a proper description for last night... Marco Resmann (Luna City Express) was in town to play at BC12 and since he's a friend and I had no plans I decided to join him which ended up on a clubhopping tour through Amsterdam.
Some nights are just unexpectedly good; like Joris Voorn's birthday. I didn't expect a full club, but when I arrived there was a huge queue and it was full. It was 1 in, 1 out.
I broke my resolution of not going out in January in the first weekend after New Years.
I ended up going to Studio 80 first for a few drinks to meet Samuel Kindermann (Einmusik).
I stayed in on New Years Eve this year, which was a first time in 12 years or so. I slept in and went to 24 Hour Partypeople with Norman Weber from Luna City Express and my homey Jeff.
My second day started with attending a panel which featured DJ Monitors owner Yuri Dokter and Chris Groenewegen from Cloud 9. The topic was "Adding value to the dance community".
Amsterdam Dance Event is always a hectic period. In the past I went to as many clubs to take some pictures everywhere for the websites I used to do. This time I focussed mostly on the daily program.
In the past I have done a radioshow, called Radio Tosti, with Aron Friedman, Lauhaus and later Boris Werner (who took Melon's place). Yesterday, on 10.10.10 Boris celebrated his 10 year DJ anniversary, with a 10 hour anniversary set.
Studio 80 is already 5 years amongst us. I still remember the opening (while I was working there) and it's been here for 5 years already. Reason enough for a good party. On a boat...
