In a fashionably different way, we're starting to see some previously unseen faces at Amsterdam Dance Event this year. Some much needed Romanian sound is coming to A'dam Toren, otherwise known as the Music Tower which turns yellow throughout the duration of the ADE week every year. On the panorama deck, at the 20th floor, Sunday night, in the club / restaurant known as Madam, Priku together with Arapu and London based East Eand Dubs will grace the floor with some groovy minimal beats.
Bulgarian born, Rotate artist, Laylla Dane will be warming up things for a night destined to end in the morning light. The trio has played together before and attendees are potentially preparing for some interesting b2b2b action. Doors open 23:00 and the lineup is stellar like the view, a great way to end ADE '17.
- 2 tickets to this amazing gathering
- Rotate 003 Vinyl - Anestie Gomez & Denis Kaznacheev / The Wieferich Pair
- Motif 004 Vinyl- Priku & Arapu / Supermoon
- Understand Romania Vinyl- Arapu / Wasted Ego
