It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard from the ever so talented producer FS Green, but he’s back with Full Crate as they are on the verge of dropping Hi-Hat Club Vol. 5 “Eggs And Pancakes”. Six tracks from each producer plus two collaborations as well. The time is finally here for some of those soon to be classics, that have been locked in the vault for way too long, to be released. Cherish gems such as “Troopercat” and “Thursday”, because you might need them either in the club or at home on a rainy day. I’m dying to meet all the guys from Cologne at the official German release party on the 29th and there is also a rumor that there will be a release party in Amsterdam the week after. Brace yourself for another amazing Melting Pot release, because this one is a must cop! Whether your poisson is MP3 or vinyl…we got that fix.

For those living in the wonderful city of Amsterdam, you are hereby invited to drop by the shop formely known as Concrete (Spuistraat 250, Amsterdam).

We’ll also be broadcasting live on Sunday, but more about that later.

One of Holland’s biggest Hip Hop events is without a doubt Appelsap in the Oosterpark. This year they celebrate their 10 year anniversary and escpecially for creators of music, Appelsap has come up with the concept “Make a living, making music”. Next week three events will take place where young, talented producers (between the age of 16 and 26) are welcome to learn and create. Check out the details below..
Monday July 12th a meeting will take place at production company Sizzer. They will explain what kind of commercials they exactly do and how producing music for commercials exactly works. Here you’ll get a briefing about how to produce a track for the “Appelsap 10 Years Commercial” (shot by “Opslaan als”) and you will be guided by Sizzer as well. These guys have received several awards for their music productions including a Golden Lion in Cannes.

Wednesday July 14th Ivo Bol will give a workshop about the use of the junXion software developed by Steim. JunXion is a Mac OSX data routing application that can process ‘sensors’ from any HID (joysticks, mice, touchscreens), MIDI, OSC, Audio, Arduino and Video device using conditional processing and remapping, with MIDI or OSC events as its output. The workshop will be focussed on the use of JunXion to use USB and Wii controllers as mid-controllers in combination with music or VJ hardware/software (like Ableton). In a hands-on session we’ll basically learn how to use game controllers as musical instruments. Bring your own Mac with prefered software and headphones with you. If you have any USB game controllers (joysticks) or Wii controllers bring them as well so you can put together a next level ‘live-performance’.
Location: Overtoom 301 (in the Cinema, 2nd floor)
Bring: Game controllers (USB), Mac platform with music software (if you do not have this, let us know well in advance), headphone.
