Being one of the largest annual conferences for electronic dance music in the world, ADE is a yearly melting pot of subcultures and genres. This is the place and time for new connections to be made and intricate collaborations to be rolled out. From October 16th to 20th, a new ADE location will be christened for such a collaboration. Studio 80, Welcome to the Future and Time Warp are joining forces to bring you the epicenter of ADE for house and techno enthusiasts: Studio 80 Warehouse at the Elementenstraat.
Over 20 years ago, this Warehouse was one of the first locations to host the now infamous raves of way back. This year will be the first time the warehouse at the Elementenstraat will be hosted during ADE, and what a way to kick things off: 5 nights, 5 parties that will keep going ‘till 08:00 in the morning with some of the biggest names out there. A few examples? What to think about Dubfire, Loco Dice, Ricardo Villalobos, Chris Liebing, Laurent Garnier and many, many more. One genuine main stage and an intimate second room to fall back to, powered by the mind boggling production skills of Time Warp and Welcome to the Future, which can only mean the best possible sound and brain twisting lights. The legendary location, combined with a string of artists that’s out of this world and top notch production values make this collaboration one to look forward to this ADE. Keep your eyes peeled. More information will follow soon.
WEDNESDAY 16-10: DUBFIRE PRESENTS SCI+TEC X WARUNG X D.EDGE
On Wednesday the 16th of October, the collaboration between Studio 80, Welcome to the Future and Time Warp at the Elementenstraat Warehouse will be kicked off with a bang. The 5 night marathon will commence on the first night of ADE with a unique team effort by Dubfire’s SCI+TEC and Brazil’s hottest clubs Warung and D.Edge.
Headlining the party at Warehouse 80 is SCI+TEC label boss Dubfire playing an exclusive 3 hour set. Expect hours and hours of bone shaking underground techno and house, with the best possible sound provided by the teams from Time Warp and Welcome to the Future. Besides Dubfire, we’ve got special guest Tiga, the master of bigroom underground techno Oliver Huntemann, a trip to tech house paradise with Carlo Lio, and SCI+TEC protegé Shaded doing a live set. In room two it’s South-American vibes all over. Warung and D.Edge are in town and have taken Renato Ratier, Tapesh, Ricardo Albequerque and Leo Janiero with them. This is the first of five nights at the Studio 80 Warehouse, and what a way to start an incredible week. Note: Audion (live) and Miss Kittin will complement the existing line up.
THURSDAY 17-10: LOCO DICE & FRIENDS
For anyone who just wants to lose everything in a reckless moment of abandon on the dancefloor, Loco Dice is the man to turn to. Taking crowds on seemingly endless journeys through the musical world he’s created over the years, he’s managed to become one of the undergrounds biggest headliners. His very successful Used + Abused residency at Ushaia, Ibiza and his world label Desolat have only added to the legend that is Loco Dice.
After blowing the roof of Studio 80 during last year’s Amsterdam Dance Event, the club is still in need of repairs. To prevent a full destruction this year, the logical step was to go bigger: Loco Dice & friends at the Studio 80 Warehouse. The depot, having undergone a metamorphosis into techno heaven due to the world class production teams of Time Warp and Welcome to the Future, will be his all night, backed up by a selection of personally picked artists from around the world. Guti is bringing his gear and will be doing a one of a kind live set. Of course, Loco Dice’s trusty friend Robert Dietz is playing. Benny Rodrigues will be the Dutch sauce to go on top, finished with rising star Hector. The second room is the domain of Detroit legend gone Dutch Anonym, backed up by Jeff Moore and long time Studio 80 resident Lauhaus. Loco Dice playing for 3 hours in the darkest warehouse of Amsterdam. Let’s see if the roof can be blown off again.
FRIDAY 18-10: RICARDO VILLALOBOS & FRIENDS
Of all the legends of the underground, only a few live up to their name. Even fewer manage to create a whole cult, following them through every step. Pioneering a whole new genre in music. Creating the minimal sound through maximum effort. Living the life of an artist that won’t leave the club until somebody finally pulls the plug and keeping it up for year after year. There’s only one Chilean born German genius who’ll fit the description. And yes, he’ll be playing at the Studio 80 Warehouse.
Ricardo Villalobos is returning to the Dutch capital for Amsterdam Dance Event on the 18th of October. After his legendary gig at Studio 80, the team behind the club knew they had to get him back for ADE to play their new warehouse. Personally selecting the artists he’ll be playing with, it’s clear that this is going to be an intimate night where everything is possible. Onur Özer, Steve Rachmad, Sonja Moonear and Thomas Melchior form the impressive list of guests he’s invited to play with him. Area 2 will be home to good friend of Ricardo and Rush Hour animal San Proper. Backed up by Studio 80 residents Daan Groeneveld, Alex Salvador and Dorine Dorado there’s no lack of quality this Thursday… An unpredictable night that promises to take the audience to the stars, beyond and everything in between.
SATURDAY 19-10: CHRIS LIEBING PRESENTS CLR
Studio 80 and CLR are two names often mentioned together. Same goes for CLR and Time Warp. It’s almost no surprise that CLR’s annual ADE mayhem will be taking place at the Studio 80 Warehouse. On the 19th of October, Chris Liebing will be present with his crew, stretching dimensions and creating voids. The signature dark CLR sound, perfectly fitted to the equally dark warehouse on the Elementenstraat.
Many memorable events of the label have been celebrated in Amsterdam – one of those cities which the CLR crew always visits with excitement and anticipation. Chris Liebing is bringing British fire Tommy Four Seven and German steam train Monoloc and Daniel Miller with him. Enough to fill a whole night with the quality techno the German label is so well known for. In the second room there’s Dimi Angelis, Juan Sanchez, Jasper Wolff and Maarten Mittendorff. A selection of some of the most popular CLR artists as well as renowned national and local techno performers playing for you at the warehouse of ADE. The Saturday of Studio 80 Warehouse is about techno in all it’s facets, this is where the real enthusiasts come out of their shell.
SUNDAY 20-10: WTTF PRESENTS LAURENT GARNIER
This is Studio 80 Warehouse. Where true legends come out and play. And what a legend we’ve got lined up for our grand finale: Laurent Garnier will be making his debut at Welcome to the Future! We can’t imagine a better way to close an already memorable Amsterdam Dance Event…
Laurent Garnier is the personification of the underground. Possibly the best example of what true passion for music looks like. The dj’s dj, not caring about fame or glory, just music. Music that is just what it is. And It Is What It Is. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s everything for mr. Garnier, and he has lived up to it with a career spanning over 20 years, still being true to what he does. Studio 80 Warehouse will be his domain on October 20th, with support coming from a German legend in itself: Karotte. Quazar will be there as well for this special occasion, making one of their rare appearances with their extravagant live set, giving the whole night some more historical significance and making it a true not-to-miss-event. The second room will be hosted by significant Dutch acts and Studio 80 residents alike: Man With No Shadow, Olivier Weiter and Victor Coral will be taking up the reigns, closing the Amsterdam Dance Event with a bang. This is the final night at Studio 80 Warehouse. Don’t miss it.
