As ADE approaches, we provide our top tips for the week.
Start your ADE in the The Pollux Pacific, a beautifully restored three mast sailing ship moored in the heart of the buzzing NDSM area. With an intimate 450 capacity across three rooms, an open deck area with beautiful views over the IJ.
It’s safe to say that London-based Freerange Records is one of the most consistent and acclaimed UK indie House labels operating today. Permanently placed in the Top 15 ‘All Time Most Charted Labels’ on RA demonstrates the high regard with which Freerange is held by the worlds best tastemaker DJ’s and producers. Sister label Delusions Of Grandeur was born in 2009, this time with an emphasis on a more eclectic, raw and disco-influenced house sound. Something fro everyone here with a big line up over 3 floors of the Pollux boat. Featuring Jimpster, Dan Shake, Black Loops, Lövestad (Live), Pablo Discobar Soundsystem, Some Chemistry and SHMLSS amongst others.
