The third edition of Buiten Westen festival will take place this Saturday (the 19th) in Amsterdam. The ‘Westerpark’ will be transformed into a place where musicians, cooks, entertainers, artists and other romantics can entertain themselves and their entourage in perfect harmony. Pleinvrees, Next Monday’s Hangover, Zeezout, NGHTDVSN, Cartel and Paardenkracht are joining forces and composed a massive line-up. We picked three artists from the line-up you should definitely check out this Saturday.
Daniel Avery, a.k.a. Stopmakingme, began DJing indie music as an 18-year-old in his native Bournemouth, England. It wasn’t until a trip to Ibiza that he was inspired to spin house and techno, after seeing crowds open to dancing to new and unfamiliar tracks. He connected with Filthy Dukes through a local bar and spun at the synth pop group’s Kill ‘Em All club night in London, which led to opening slots at the prestigious Fabric.
For 2012, he switched to his birth name and broke out with a slew of releases forJames Friedman’s Throne of Blood, Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Sound, and J.D. Twitch’s Optimo Music.Avery capped off a whirlwind year by mixing the 66th volume of the Fabriclive series, highlighted by several of his own productions. After signing to the Phantasy Sound label, Avery released his first solo album, Drone Logic, in October of 2013.

Despite still having many years ahead of him, Rone has come a long way, being one of the most acclaimed young French musicians on the electronic scene. He has been newly acclaimed by Trax Magazine as Best French Artist.
Touring throughout Europe, videos with the Creators Project, remixes driving clubs wild around the globe, tracks with John Stanier, The National and more coming soon, we can say he is in a beehive of activity. In 2013, Rone’s musical universe expended to include live shows, new mixes of genres and styles, collaborations and a lot of travelling, culminating in a sold out show at Paris’ huge, prestigious Olympia concert venue.

This UK duo, known for their beautiful production work, prolific remixing skills, obscenely vast record collections and transcendent mixtape journeys, are being heralded as a truly unique and positive presence in today’s music scenes. They also have a reputation as the go to guys for mega rare records and samples that you won’t find anywhere else.
It is their incredible ear for musical treasures and their dedication to the art of digging that has lead to the success of their recent compilations. Psychemagik Presents: ‘Magik Cyrkles’ and Psychemagik Presents: ‘Magik Sunrise’ on Leng records, both of which sold out worldwide on vinyl within hours of release and featured in the top 5 of most good record shops bestsellers lists.
With a wealth of upcoming releases just around the corner, they’ve already set the controls for the heart of the sun and will be heading into a whole new stratosphere of creativity.
