High calibre house music from the deeper end of the spectrum, brought to you by some of The Netherlands’ top promoters. Northern England house royalty Richy Ahmed and Patrick Topping head up a bill packed with the best in the game. Both have well-earned reputations at the forefront of British house in their own right but their b2b sets have become the stuff of legend, defined by a telepathic understanding shared behind the booth. Backed up by an all-night takeover with man like Skream in room two, there’s plenty of UK clout to make this one stand up.
There’s plenty of talent from further afield as well. KiNK has made his name as one of the best-loved live performers around, tailoring his vast web of material to match the vibe of a party. The sets are often a hybrid of live stems and other records, using house, techno, acid and broken beat and melding them into weapons-grade blend to destroy any dancefloor.
Heidi, the mastermind behind the Jackathon, is equally renowned for her attention to detail in making a party as fun as it always should be. Behind the decks she might as well be another raver, enthusiastically throwing shapes to her favoured corner of house and techno.
The house pedigree doesn’t let up either with Bristol’s Waifs & Strays holding court over in room three. With backing in both rooms from Dutch heads ANOTR, Luuk van Dijk and Wouter S, STRAF_WERK have put together a collection of slick, stylish selectors and a party of the highest order.
