On June 26th our Belgian peoples from A Cut Above celebrate their 2 year anniversary endorsed by the good people at Converse. As their special guests they’ve invited Fatima and Funkineven of Eglo Records. Too bad I can’t make it to Cafe Capital, cuz I’ll be in Los Angeles that weekend. We are allowed to give away 5 FREE tickets, so if you’d like to go please add a comment stating why you’d like to see Fatima and Funkineven live in Antwerp.
Nice way to promote a huge event like Sonar is supplying the audience with some exclusive free downloads. Loving Hudson Mohawke‘s “Snapdragon” and I think you guys will like it too. Get it while it’s still available at Bleep (till June 21st)…hurry! Thnx to 92bpm.
UK massive in the house. This Friday our big buddy TY and RBMA-ninja Kidkanevil are going to perform in the upstairs room of Amsterdam’s Paradiso. We were asked to host the evening and of course we said yes. MOOVMNT at PARADISO starts of with TY who’ll be performing a lot of new material of his brand new “Special Kind of Fool” album. To bring the transition from Hip Hop to more electronic styles of music, the little homie Jameszoo is going to play some tunes. I heard through the grapevine that he’s releasing his debut album later this year, but more info on that soon. To end the evening Kidkanevil is going to do a Live set with an whole array of different styles of electronic music. Keywords are wonky, dubby and who knows what else he’s got in store. If you were impressed by his “Basho Basho” album, come support this upcoming producer.
Not only do you get two live shows…you can also visit Oi! afterwards for FREE. Breakage, Distance, N-Type, Gomes & Brutuzz will be playing some bangin’ Dubstep in the main room downstairs in case you want to go apeshit till the break of dawn.
Send us an email if you want a spot on the guestlist and we might email you back with some good news. All emails have to be in our inbox in 48 hours!
Tonight we bring that SOUL flava to the MiNiBAR and to help us with this, we invited local legend DJ Manga. This cat has been spinning for decades and is older than time itself (just kidding). Seriously though. Manga is well known here in Amsterdam for his ‘Legends’ party that he’s been doing together with Supreme Cuisine in the Paradiso for some time now. We’d like to invite everyone in the 020 area to drop by and have a drink with us. If you like that soulful music don’t be shy…we’ll see you tonight!
Timeless is finally in a store near you and to celebrate this occasion VTech and Mochilla have come together for an amazing once in a lifetime event. On June 18th, live on stage at the historic Los Angeles Theatre Center, they present Arthur Verocai LIVE! He’s coming all the way from Rio de Janeiro with an all-star 12-piece band, while I’ll be coming all the way from Amsterdam with the homie Marcelo. Hopefully we arrive in L.A. hours before the show, but no matter what I have to see this.
FYI….this event is FREE!! All you have to do is go to www.mochilla.com and follow the instructions. The sign-up page will go live tomorrow night (June 10th) at midnight and will come down on Friday night at the same time. There are only 200 pairs of tickets available so they’re holding lottery drawings. Sign up with a valid email address (one per person) and you could be one of the lucky two hundred. To top it off there will be a very special after-party with surprise guests…
VTech and Mochilla will also be screening the Timeless: Arthur Verocai concert DVD on the 16th and 17th of June at the Independent Downtown Theater, with Arthur making a special Q&A session appearance. Finally Arthur will be on KCRW for a super exclusive “Morning Becomes Eclectic” Live Performance on June 17th from 11:15AM to Noon, so don’t miss that! Tune into 89.9FM in LA or KCRW.COM from the internet to catch the show.
After the jump you can see the exclusive video from behind the scenes of the last time Arthur was in town that is not on the DVD.
Once again we bring it live to the MiNiBAR in Amsterdam, where tomorrow our special guest is none other than Mark de Clive-Lowe. This genius needs no introduction and it’s an honor to have him play at our monthly party. We als record our very first official show on Red Bull Radio tomorrow as well, so Mark will drop by to bless the airwaves as well. Every month we’ll be recording Moovmnt Radio at the Sugar Factory in Amsterdam, so any artists in the neighborhood…holla if you want to be come visit. The show will be available online somewhere next week (if Red Bull decides to send it this time). The previous show we recorded was a pilot, but it never made it into our hands inbox.
Back to business. Your bar or mine? Expect some Nu-Soul, Hip Hop, Nu-Jazz/Broken Beat, Soulful House and much much more. In the meanwhile…get in the mood with Mark’s “Quintessential” with Kaidi on the Moog of the “Tide’s Arising” album which is available via

In a little under two weeks, we will be blessed by the presence of none other than Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins. Both will be performing live at Strange Fruit on May 6th at Rotown (Rotterdam). We heard that Dudley aka Declaime is on SomeOthaShit and will be slapping us upside the head with some serious new F.O.N.K. so I thought it was only fitting we keep it “Gangsta”. We invite you to join us in Rotterdam and get live with G&D, Spec Boogie, Thelonious and Luckydubz…get your tickets HERE!
We told you last week that Stones Throw‘s ambassador of Boogie Funk is back in Amsterdam this Friday. Before the clock strikes midnight L.A.’s very own Dãm-Funk will be at the MiNiBAR to give ya’ll a taste of that Funk. An intimate signing session will take place, so bring your vinyl or CD if you want an autograph. Stick around for a while and hear Dãm-Funk play a couple of records to get you in the mood. Don’t expect a whole set, because he’s saving that for Boogie Bash at the Paradiso later that night.
If you were wondering what you were doing Friday night after 1pm…now you know. KC The Funkaholic was so nice to give us a couple of guestlist spots to give away via Moovmnt and all you need to do is follow THIS LINK and invite a few friends. Also leave a comment with your very first encounter with Dãm-Funk’s music. Where were you when you first heard it? How did you hear about him? What went through your mind when you heard his music for the first time? The most original answers (read hot females) will be contacted.
As if Boogie Bash isn’t enough, you can also enjoy the crazy sounds of Brainfeeder‘s very own Mothaf*ckin’ Gaslamp Killer upstairs in the main room at MOSH!. Buy tickets online to make sure you get in where you fit in.
Stones Throw’s Abassador of Boogie Funk Dãm-Funk did a bangin’ ass cover of “The Things Dreams Are Made Of” by synth-pop band The Human League. Eventhough today is April Fools’ the following is no joke. Shoe brand Dr. Martens celebrates it’s 50-year-anniversary and for this special occasion the brand asked ten modern-day producers to remake a cult classic in their own style. All tracks come with a videoclip and man is this one crazy! FREE download of course..
As if this wasn’t enough…Dãm-Funk will be performing at Boogie Bash on April 9th. KC the Funkaholic is bringing back the Boogie so get your ass over to the Paradiso next week. In addition Damon will also be dropping by the MiNiBAR earlier that evening to give ya’ll a taste of what the night at Boogie Bash has in store for you. Bring your marker and your entire Dãm-Funk collection to get everything autographed by the master of Funk himself. More info on Boogie Bash next week..
