Dekmantel Festival in Amsterdam has arguably the best lineup of a European festival this year, coming in at Nextup Throwback has assembled a selection of the best collaborations the festival has to offer.
Magic Mountain High
Expect undefinable, high energy jazzy/trip hop/techno/ analogue noise from a magical union of Move D and Juju & Jordash, some of the most talented yet underrated producers.
Odd noises in a good way courtesy of Axel Boman and John Talabot. Props to their name which is like a better version of Turboman (sorry Arnie).
Treating punters to a mammoth three hour set are longtime collaborators Theo Parrish, Moodymann, Rick Wilhite and Marcellus Pittman. More than equipped for the job, these guys are experienced and renowned crate-diggers, ready to take you on a journey…
Blawan and Surgeon providing industrial, relentless techno. That early morning crossover which is exactly what is needed to persuade ravers to stay out rather than go back in. Seek them out when you start to come down, be prepared.
Jackmaster and Oneman
Presenting their project ‘Can U Dance’ where the title is more of a threat than a question. Garage, disco, house, bass and everything inbetween, they’ll play everything you want and more to get moving and grooving like there’s no tomorrow.
(legit, they played this at Parklife)
