Orpheu the wizard

Amsterdam Dance Event & SXSW invite Amsterdam’s online radio station Red Light Radio to host this night at Plush with strictly Dutch iconic Dj’s. High energy underground electronic music all night long with San Proper, Dollkraut, Casper Tielrooij & Orpheu the Wizard!

San Proper is a well-respected artist from the Amsterdam underground club scene. Over the last fifteen years, he has been spinning and playing live from major clubs and festivals to smaller bars and dodgy underground locations. He’s known and praised for his House & Disco sets, but also skilled in blending different styles from Acid to Afro-beat into an eclectic journey.

Dollkraut’s music is driven by a deep love for old lo-fi fuelled recordings, 70’s space age synthesizers and John Barry meets Ennio Morricone fuzziness galore. Tonight he will play a DJ set in this same line.

Casper Tielrooij is one of the founders of the mighty Dekmantel. As a DJ he combines all different genres which Dekmantel stands for such as house, techno, disco, afro, dub (amongst others) – together, fusing it into one distinguishing mix.

Red Light Radio’s owner and dj’s dj Orpheu the Wizard will bring his rare records from around the world to Austin. Stuff you’ve probably never heard before, but one thing is for sure, you won’t stand still.

ADE and SXSW are happy to invite Dutch festival APPELSAP to host a showcase at Plush. Appelsap Fresh Music Festival, famous for bringing world-class Hiphop, R&B and electronic music to Amsterdam, will be showcasing some of Amsterdam’s finest talent such as Bea1991 and established artists such as PATTA soundsystem (FS Green & Lion Kojo) and Cinnaman.

PATTA Soundsystem
FS Green is a DJ and producer from Amsterdam who started producing beats at the age of 15. Started out as a hobby, but quickly turned into a serious career including productions for Dutch hip hop’s finest, such as Zwart Licht, Hef, SLBMG, Gers Pardoel, Pete Philly, Winne and Jiggy Dje. He is currently one of the online curators for 22tracks and plays major festivals such as North Sea Jazz festival, Dance Valley, Amsterdam Open Air and of course Appelsap Fresh Music Festival.

Lion Kojo is not just your average DJ, producer, model and next generation up-and-coming artist. During his younger years, artists varying from Mighty Diamonds, Habib Kote, Madlib, MF Doom, Sade, and Hudson Mohawke have inspired him musically. Producing as a young kid with big dreams and carefully listening to the great artists listed above, planted the seeds for his future career in music. Right now, odds are that you know him from numerous events, or as “that dude that always plays the greatest tunes for me to get freaky to” in Amsterdam’s popular night clubs. Definitely keep an eye out for Lion Kojo, for this is just the beginning.

Cinnaman: The Amsterdam based Yuri Boselie, alias Cinnaman, is rightfully known as one of the leading Dutch DJs of the moment. At an early age he stepped up behind the decks and his years of experience clearly come to the fore in his eclectic DJ sets. Cinnaman plays a wide range of styles and is never afraid to mix the known with the unknown. From Chicago house to hip hop, from UK bass to garage; Cinnaman never hesitates to take risks in his sets and always draws for remarkable combinations and transitions.

Bea1991: This young Amsterdam female singer is about to break through internationally with her warm, sexy and soulful electronic pop/R&B. Her EP ‘Songs of 2k11’ is a favorite at, for example, TheFADER, BBC, Vice, Noisey, Dazed & Confused and Rolling Stone.
