On Friday 16 October Defected In The House joins forces with Strictly Rhythm to bring the cream of underground house talent from across the globe to AIR, Amsterdam for another edition of our legendary Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) showcase events.
The event this October marks the fifth year that we have thrown our ADE showcase at AIR. To date, every single one has been a roadblocked affair, and an essential date on the ADE’s expansive party calendar.
Sandy Rivera plays a special – and rare – set as Kings Of Tomorrow alongside recent Defected collaborators Riva Starr, Hector Couto and Andrea Oliva, with a very special appearance from Hannah Wants whose phenomenal performances on the Amnesia Ibiza Terrace has marked her out as one of the key players this season.
The Defected residents are also out in force, with sets from Sam Divine, Sonny Fodera, Franky Rizardo, Simon Dunmore and Rae demonstrating the emphasis of the label on building a solid foundation for its parties.
Room 2 boasts a line-up most main rooms would be proud of, with Juan MacLean, DJ T., Tim Deluxe and Luke Solomon each promising their own distinct blends of mind-bending electronic music.
The line-up reflects those artists who have contributed to a remarkably strong release schedule, with cuts from The Juan MacLean (‘A Simple Design), Kings Of Tomorrow (‘Burn So Deep’), Tim Deluxe (the incredible studio album The Radicle) all set for release in the coming months.
The ADE party continues our This Is Our House Club Tour that commenced back in March at London’s Oval Space. The tour takes in dozens of clubs and festival spaces across Europe and Asia, including Amnesia (Ibiza), Extrema Festival (Holland) Barrakud Festival (Croatia), Shakedown Festival, (Brighton) Sundown Festival (Norwich) and EH1 Festival (Edinburgh), with many more dates still to be announced.
