With Wednesday’s smile embellishing our sleep-deprived appearance (read all about it in Armada Music – ADE 2015: Part 1), Amsterdam Dance Event 2015 assures us that it does not sleep. The parties keep going ’til we’re unable to express how exhausted we are, and the break of dawn lifts our spirits with the promise of another marvelous day. A new day of ADE equals a brand new experience, and here is where you find out what the thunderous Thursday of October 15th had in store for Armada Music at Amsterdam Dance Event 2015. Here is part two of Armada Music – ADE 2015.
Armada Music – ADE 2015: Armada Deep @ Heineken Experience
The second Armada Music party of Amsterdam Dance Event 2015 hit the Heineken Experience on Thursday night, and what an experience it was. With a smashing line-up bringing top-tier Deep House artists such as MÖWE, Pretty Pink, and Lost Frequencies to the unique venue, it’s no wonder that the event was completely sold out. And as the Deep vibes flowed freely and the attendees were granted the time of their lives, we already started pondering about ways in which we can continue this brand new tradition.
Armada Music – ADE 2015: ‘Strong Ones’ premiere
Thursday was a busy day for Armin van Buuren. Next to receiving the very first copy of his album ‘Embrace’ in a unique and spectacular manner (scroll down for the video), the renowned Electronic Music artist premiered his brand new single ‘Strong Ones’ feat. Cimo Fränkel, live on air at the biggest broadcasting station in The Netherlands (Radio 538). Afterwards, he played the track in Episode 735 of his A State Of Trance radio show, unleashed the teaser of the official music video for the single, and released the single altogether due to popular demand.
Check out the teaser below, and listen to ‘Strong Ones’ if you haven’t already!
Armada Music – ADE 2015: ‘Embrace’ the fly boards…
As fly board pilot Bo Krook grabbed the attention of everyone within two square miles with a spectacular performance in the Amsterdam canals, it rapidly became clear that it wasn’t merely a display of skill. While the crowd became increasingly obsessed with the brilliant tricks and stunts, no one other than Armin van Buuren himself walked to the hand rail of the nearby bridge, as if he was merely one of the spectators. However, the fly board pilot turned his attention to the renowned Electronic Music artist and handed him a briefcase containing… THE FIRST PHYSICAL COPY OF THE ‘EMBRACE’ ALBUM!
To those that were there to watch the entire thing, it was undoubtedly one of the highlights of Amsterdam Dance Event 2015, even though it didn’t involve some kind of slamming party. Whether it made them aware of the imminent release of the album or just more excited for the album release they were already highly anticipating, be sure that Armin’s album is something to look out for. You can watch a summary the entire happening below.
Armada Music – ADE 2015: The final days of Amsterdam Dance Event 2015
As Amsterdam Music Festival and the highly anticipated results of the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll knock on our door, there’s still a lot of amazing stuff going on until Amsterdam Dance Event crawls back in the shadows, remaining dormant only to return same time next year. For the remainder of the happening, there are a few things you should attend (if possible) before calling it quits for this year.
1. ADE panel with Lost Frequencies, Armin van Buuren, and Ben Liebrand
At 02.00 PM (CET) today, Lost Frequencies, Armin van Buuren, and Ben Liebrand are the players in ‘A Meeting Of Minds’. Tangled in a conversation spanning three generations and their own view on the current electronic music climate, the resulting conference should provide trans-generational insights on where Electronic Music is headed and how you could stand out from the rest. If you’re able to make it in time today: F5 Panel Room in Felix Meritis.
2. ADE Demo Drop
As we have some gifted minds and talented artists at our disposal, there’s no way we’re getting involved in the both feared and anticipated Demo Drops at Amsterdam Dance Event. This year, our very own Kevin Duane (A&R/Label Manager Armada Deep & Subjekt Recordings) and Rogier de Kreuk (a.k.a. Rodg, internationally acclaimed Trance DJ/producer) have offered their time and experience on behalf of Armada Music to provide aspiring DJs and producers with tips and tricks regarding their demo submissions.
3. Amsterdam Music Festival 2015
In old fashion, AMF 2015 is ready to rock your world on Friday and Saturday night. With the biggest names in DJ land set to perform and witness the DJ Mag results live, this yearly gathering of world-class artists and astonishing DJ performances is one for the books. For those that cannot be there, or want to experience it all over again when it has all ended, the official AMF 2015 compilation has been launched today. You can listen to it below!
All in all, we hope you’ve been having a great time, and will be enjoying yourself even more in the next few days, all the while kindling the Electronic music fire burning in your heart. And if there’s still a massive hangover to be cured, you might just consider the playlist below!
