Hot on the heels of its inaugural festival, Dekmantel presents a 4-night takeover at the Amsterdam Dance Event 2013.
Dekmantel has been a driving force in the Dutch electronic scene since 2007, both as a club night and record label pushing deep and exploratory sounds. Taking their party-starting prowess to a new level this year, the Amsterdam-based brand threw the first annual Dekmantel Festival back in August, a 2-day knees-up soundtracked by a dazzling bill of techno and house elite. No rest for the wicked it seems, as the Dekmantel crew have just announced they will taking over the historic MC Theater and North See Jazz Club for four nights of this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event, October 17-20.
Dekmantel has become a regular fixture at ADE over the years, but their 2013 residency will be their biggest yet with a lineup featuring label showcases from Crew Love, Hessle Audio and L.I.E.S, an epic 8-hour set from Todd Terje and Prins Thomas, masterclasses in house from Omar S and Moodymann, and an Ostgut Ton techno marathon to close the event, helmed by the Berghain backbone of Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Marcel Fengler, Steffi and many more.
