Amsterdam based festival Dekmantel have kicked off a new video series by featuring Rush Hour records owner Antal.
Aimed at telling “the stories of real people, real deejays, and their absolute passion for music”, subsequent episodes of Sole Selectors will focus on the likes of DJ Harvey, Gerd Janson and Prins Thomas. This opening episode meanwhile keeps it local by shining the spotlight on Amsterdam stalwart Antal, owner of the acclaimed Amsterdam based record store, label and music distributor Rush Hour. Described as “the digger of diggers” by his colleague San Proper (who also shows off his Rush Hour tattoo), the video is an interesting profile on the man behind one of the continent’s most respected musical institutions-with some great shots of the Dutch capital to boot.
Dekmantel meanwhile takes place across three days from 1st to 3rd August. Antal’s Rush Hour crew will be out in full force of course, as will the likes of Jamie XX, Levon Vincent, Blawan, Daphni and Jon Talabot and Axel Boman’s Talaboman side project. Grab tickets here.
