Audio Obscura continues to expand their empire with the addition of yet another major event during 2018’s Amsterdam Dance Event. With the announcement of Maceo Plex’s alter ego Mariel Ito’s scheduled performance at Amsterdam Central Station, Audio Obscura completes their programming for the unique location. The event will take place on the 20th of October and will see support from Danny Daze and Lord Of The Isles.
Mariel Ito is the more experimental alter ego of Maceo Plex, which was a way for him to put out his electro and IDM productions. While the alter ego is a rather old one, it was recently revived with multiple EP releases and a retrospective album on R&S Records. Just a few weeks ago Maceo Plex took his Mariel Ito alias to Amsterdam for a set at the internationally acclaimed Dekmantel Festival.
Omnidisc head honcho Danny Daze is also set to perform during the event. The Miami-born underground DJ has a longstanding relationship with Maceo Plex, having regularly performed at his Mosaic events around the globe. The last addition to the bill is Lord Of The Isles, who just recently released his critically acclaimed Irafas EP on Maceo Plex’s Lone Romantic label.
Previously Joris Voorn and Charlotte de Witte were announced to perform at the Central Station, whose events have both sold out already. Joris Voorn will be hosting his hugely popular Spectrum night on the 18th of October and Charlotte de Witte will host the 19th, both acts will be performing all night long.
Audio Obscura announce ADE afterhours sessions with Jackmaster, Optimo, Maceo Plex and Job Jobse
Amsterdam, September 28 | Started as a one-off during ADE 2016, Audio Obscura now announce not one, but three unmissable afterhours sessions during Amsterdam Dance Event in The Loft. This stunning venue is located on the 16th floor of the A’DAM Tower in Amsterdam Noord with sweeping panoramic views over the area.
Running Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning from 7 AM, the parties seek to replicate the vibe of the afterhours at the venue in 2016 with Maceo Plex andSolar and back in May with Job Jobse, Dixon and Oceanic . The huge success has spurred the Audio Obscura team to extend the concept to three days, with huge guests on the bill all playing special back-to-back sets.
Friday morning (October 20) will be a Glasgow takeover, with Jackmaster and Optimo continuing their close friendship and playing eclectic delights together. Saturday (October 21) sees the return of Maceo Plex, bringing slick house and tech flavours, while Sunday (October 22) will see local hero Job Jobse hold court.
The special guests that will be playing alongside Maceo Plex and Job Jobse will soon be revealed so watch this space.
If that isn’t enough to make you want to skip work / sleep / breakfast, we’ll be surprised!
Advance ticket sales begin on October 5, so set those alarms.
