Dave Clarke returns to the Amsterdam Dance Event with his milestone ’10 Years of Dave Clarke Presents’ Melkweg showcase and as resident host of the Demolition Panel demo competition, plus an exclusive one-hour ADE set to be streamed for Mixmag & I Love Techno. Dave Clarke will be playing a 3-hour b2b headline set with Mr. Jones as _Unsubscribe_ at the sub:Merged ADE Special, Sunday 19 October.
Now in its 19th year, the annual Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) has grown to become the world’s biggest club festival and a melting pot for industry heads and music lovers alike. A
five-day fiesta of business and beats, ADE’s schedule of music, art, film and tech-related conference events is topped each night by a club programme boasting the good and the great of the
electronic music world. Possibly at the forefront of this programme for the last decade has been Dave Clarke, and his club night ‘Dave Clarke Presents’.
Touching down on Friday 17 October at Amsterdam’s Melkweg venue for the 10th successive year, Clarke leads a showcase that represents both the old and new guard of electronic music. Topping the bill are US veterans Green Velvet and Stacey Pullen, whose role in the evolution of techno and house is undisputed. Flying the flag for the UK are Ben Sims and Gary Beck, with a very special set from Mute Records founder Daniel Miller.
Pfirter is a producer who has established himself as one of South America’s top techno exports with releases on the likes of Chris Liebing’s CLR Records, whilst Scottish duo Clouds are leading the charge in a new breed of tastemakers bringing fresh grit to the techno sound. Adding some homegrown weight is Clarke’s production partner Mr Jones, plus ‘Dave Clarke Presents’ residents Estroe, Jeff Rushin and Nicole Rosie.
Already a total sell-out, the event will be broadcast live on DI Radio - http://www.di.fm/ - for anyone who isn’t lucky enough to be there. Guests will also have the chance to win a limited edition designed bottle of Genever, with all proceeds from the competition going to charity.
Following his Melkweg showcase Dave will once again be stepping up to the plate as host of the ADE Demolition Panel, an event where up and coming producers get the opportunity to submit their demos and have them critiqued, or potentially ‘demolished’, by some of the industry’s finest. As Clarke explains:
“Although the title of the panel suggests explosive commentary you should see this as an opportunity to get support and great insight into your unsigned music by some of the top professionals in the field.”
Joining Dave on the panel will be French DJ/producer Agoria, Mute Records founder Daniel Miller, globetrotting DJ and Numbers co-founder Jackmaster, and Fire In The Disco’s Niels Brands.
