About the artists
Our resident, Carlos Valdes has been a key figure of Amsterdam’s nightlife for well over two decades. His vital contribution to the city’s electronic music scene as a DJ, promoter, label owner, and all-round inspirator is indisputable. As one of the founding fathers of the famous IsBurning nights, he helped lay the groundwork for Amsterdam’s now thriving LGBTQIA+ club scene. What started as a night with quality dance music for all gender identities at the legendary club Trouw, is now a worldwide phenomenon. Whether he’s slaying the floor at Panorama Bar, Blitz, or Bassiani, bringing the heat at Glastonbury, Dekmantel Selectors or Lighthouse Croatia, or creating magical journeys like his 6-hour set at Wildeburg, Carlos Valdes remains a musical force to be reckoned with.
Deniro – a producer pur sang. Synthesizers are his way to communicate with the world. Deniro has been gradually emerging from the Dutch techno scene as one of the most exciting artists in Europe. His music, markedly emotional and with roots in Detroit inspired soul music, reflects over 15 years of isolation exploring his vintage machinery. But it is also in the booth that he has proved to be an excellent sound architect, with sets that go beyond genres and whose contagious groove irrevocably binds us to the dance floor. Besides making music, he loves to travel and share his view of the deeper classic house and 90’s up-tempo techno sounds. After high-profile (inter)national gigs at Dekmantel Festival, Printworks London, Awakenings and Reaktor he is not done sharing and is more than ready to let his music be heard everywhere.
