Tourists know

The ADE has continued to rise as a name on the international electronic

music calendar. In 2005, well over 12.000 people travelled to Amsterdam

to visit ADE shows. ‘With the increased mobility from people in

Europe, it’s fairly easy to take a plane from London or Berlin’, says ADE

general manager Richard Zijlma: ‘With the publicity we’ve had in Germany

and the UK in particular, we’re expecting a very significant rise in

the amount of punters coming over - at least 25.000.’

Ranging in genre from deep techno and electro to urban crossover,

and from underground avant-garde to massive club anthem house,

the ADE features established artists but also has a keen eye for new

talent and new music. Acts confirmed include Arthur Baker (us),

Miss Kittin (f), Dave Clarke (uk), Baby Dee (us), Tiefschwarz (d),

Andy Barlow (Lamb, uk), Planet Pendulum (uk), DJ Benny Benassi

DJ Spooky (usa), Kelpe (uk), Nuno dos Santos (nl), Oxia (f), DJ Joy

de la Rosa (e/nl), Gerry Arling’s Bombay Connection Sitar Band feat.

(uk), Appletree Records (nl), Sonar Kollektiv (d), MN2S (uk),

Pokerflat Recordings (d), Toolroom Records (uk) and Rush Hour (nl).

Day program

The ADE day-time conference seems to be definitely established as the

meeting place for the international electronic and dance scene, and expected

to sell out. With speakers such as Pete Tong, Dave Clarke, Josh

Wink and panels like ‘Games, Advertising & Electronic Music, Does it

Blend?!’, ‘The Role of the Manager’, ‘The Converse of Communication,

the Evolution of Media’, ‘The Artist Debate’ and ‘The Digital Divide’ ADE

rounds off like always, bringing business and knowledge to the next

level. Surrounded by 1800 professionals ADE is networking heaven for

those who run the dance scene professionally.

RACOON

PHOTO MAURITS GIESEN

Sometimes justice does exist. At least, that’s what you think when you hear that Racoon was dropped by

their record label after two fine releases which sold quite well, but not enough for their major label. The band

decided not to give up and concentrated on writing new songs, and it paid off, as the album ‘ Another Day’

proved. With the romantic and soothing single Love You More Racoon made a huge comeback and became

more successful than ever before, resulting in massive album sales and a place on the main stage of Holland’s

biggest music festival Pinkpop. Just wait until the rest of the world discovers them…

www.racoon.nl

When the lads across the Channel

are enthousiastic about

something not-British, it’s time

to take notice. The Hague’s

Kraak & Smaak got the buzz going

with their first 12”’s and is

a true favourite of dance/funklovers

across Europe, thanks

to their sizzling debutalbum

Boogie Angst. The trio is even

more energetic onstage, where

they are often accompanied by a

horn section and various guests,

including a breakdancer and DJ.

The English have already nicknamed

the trio Crack & Smack,

and that tells also something

about the addictiveness of this

band.

www.kraaksmaak.nl

www.dutchsound.nl | september 2006

KRAAK & SMAAK

PETER PAN SPEEDROCK

You gotta say yes to another excess! Peter Pan Speedrock certainly do.

Hailing from Eindhoven (Rock City), this powerhouse of a trio play super-fast

maximum rock’n’roll. They’ve been compared to bands such as

Nashville Pussy, Motorhead, The Hellacopters, and Gluecifer, but Peter

Pan Speedrock force others to play by their rules. The group is known

for their spectacular live shows but for your daily dose of rock excess

you can pick up their latest album Spread Eagle, a beast of an album.

BLUES BROTHER CASTRO

LEGOWELT

What’s so great about Dutch electronic music? You mean, except for

the original ideas, the high quality level and the international recognition?

It’s the humour! What to think about Legowelt tracks like Stumvogel

or Total Pussy Control? Exactly. Danny Wolfers is a one of a kind

producer and has been releasing music on various formats and under

various names ever since the early nineties, and keeps on doing so

under much praise. If you’re in for something truly unique, then check

out Legowelt.

www.xs4all.nl/~awolfe/

THE GATHERING

Blues Brother Castro has often been called the hardest working band in

Holland. They recently released their first single and video for the song

Drunken Boy off the Money Maker Me-album. Having played across

Europe and the US on various occasions BBC is emerging on the international

music-scene. No wonder they named their second album

‘Fun’, because they are certainly having a lot of it-taking their Pixieslike

sound with them on the way.

www.bluesbrothercastro.nl

A decade ago the Gathering pioneered the currently popular Goth trend in

the Netherlands. Singer Anneke van Giersbergen became the role model

of a legion of similar bands. Since then, the band has moved into ‘trip

rock’ territory, as demonstrated at Glastonbury 2003 or on their various

tours throughout Mexico. While Within Temptation may be better known

nowadays, it’s safe to say that they wouldn’t exist in the way they currently

do without The Gathering. The band from Oss has left the goth-path to

explore unknown territories and are eager to take you with them.

STUURBAARD BAKKEBAARD

Calexico meets Zita Swoon, but then in an incomparable style that defies

categorizing. From 1996, they played all over Europe, including support

in 2004 for Norway’s Kaisers Orchestra, and did a South African tour. The

album Whistle Dixie is released in 2005, while Stuurbaard Bakkebaard

also did support shows in Holland for G-Love & Special Sauce and got

invited to the Popup Musikmesse in Leipzig.

www.stuurbaardbakkebaard.nl

KREZIP

Krezip were the youngest band to ever play Holland’s Pinkpop festival

in 2000. Their debut album topped the Dutch album chart and went

triple platinum. They won a Zilveren Harp, an Edison award and several

TMF Awards, played festivals like Noorder-slag, Lowlands, Werchter

and Pinkpop. Krezip also toured Germany twice and did support slots

for Bon Jovi and Sheryl Crow in Holland, Germany and France. In 2003

the band did an acoustic tour, released on CD and DVD. Following the

recording of third album What Are You Waiting For (Sony/BMG), the

band recently sold out Columbia Fritz in Berlin several weeks before

the show.

GEM

‘Tell Me What’s New’ is the call to arms of one of

Holland’s most exciting new bands. Initially making

their appearance on a Dutch talent sampler (sound

familiar?!!), 2004 has been a hell of a year for this

five-piece. At times, it seems like singer Maurits

Westerik would find himself in a severe crisis if he

didn’t front a rock ‘n’ roll band. Taking equal parts

out of the book Julian and the book Liam, he possesses

the brawn, the swagger, and Gem might

just pull it off. The sound? Think Libertines, thing

Strokes, think power! The Dutch aren’t known as a

country with experience when it comes to the phe-

Organ, drumzzz and vocalzzz. A lot

of buzzz and groovezzz. Well, that’s

zZz. They go buzzz buzzz buzz, and

it’s just becuzzz they’re bonkerzzz.

Imagine the doomy vocals of the

late Ian Curtis (Joy Division) and

the psychobilly madnezzz of Lux

Interior (Cramps) rolled into one.

zZz, pronounzzzed like the French

say jazz (minus the ja, obviously)

have toured the USzzz zzzeveral timezzz

and alzzzo went to Japan to

support Fatboy Slim. zZz is unique

and they know it.

www.soundofzzz.nl

nomenon of hype, but Gem might just prove them

wrong with their intriguing melodies. ‘Tonight’ is

an Eighties-influenced powerhouse of a song, and

it’ll have you singing along in a heartbeat. Gem have

recently performed at the CMJ Seminar, at Pop-

Komm, Haldern Pop, and at Aberdeen’s Go North

conference. The band from Utrecht have been hailed

as a breath of fresh air and with their second album

‘Escapades’ have proven they are one of the finest

bands of today’s rockscene.

ARTIKEL-TITEL BIOGRAPHIES NEUE IN KAPITALEN HOLLÄNDISCHE WELLE CD PART 3.0

DUTCH MUSIC WITH VISIONS

A special ‘Neue Hollandische Welle’ CD now accompanies

the September issue of Visions magazine in

Germany. Presenting some of the most prolific bands

from the Netherlands, NHW now sees its third edition

and is also handed out at the Dutch stand at Popkomm

and at some of the shows. The tracklisting:

2. Anouk

> More Than You Deserve

EMI Music Netherlands

amrita.panday@emimusic.com

www.anouk.com

Born in The Hague in 1975, Anouk is truly a Dutch diva. Known for her explosive

live performances, on stage she’s a maelstrom of blonde hair and

attitude easily managing to out-rock her male band. Right from the start her

powerful voice and matching personality made people sit up and take notice.

Her first serious steps on the musical ladder started back in 1996, when

she was invited to support fellow rock legends Golden Earring. 1997 sees

the release of her debut single ‘Nobody’s Wife’ which goes platinum in

Holland, Sweden and Norway. From then on it’s straight to the top; the

following years she clocks up numerous awards and accolades including

an Edison for Best National Singer, TMF Awards, performances at major

European festivals and a Golden Harp in 2003. ‘Hotel New York’, her latest

album released in 2004, sees the singer explore reggae, funk and soul

styles. Spawning a string of hit singles, the album went gold after just one

week. It seems the golden girl can do no wrong. No wonder her fellow

musician husband, Postman asked her to sing almost all of the backing

vocals on his reggae/rap album ‘Green’.

Green Lizard is a well established Dutch band. After having their first EP produced by Jack Endino, they made two

albums for Sony Music and toured all over the world for bigger and bigger audiences. They played the Vans World

Tour in 2003/2004, and after that opened for bands like The Rasmus and Living Colour. ‘Las Armas Del Silencio’

is the name of their third album and was mixed by Clif Norrell (No Doubt, Faith No More) and released by I Scream

Records. They are already popular in France and also played at this year’s Sziget Festival.

6. Johan

> She’s Got A Way With Men

Excelsior Recordings | johan@excelsior-recordings.com | www.johan4all.com

One of Netherlands’ best secrets is Johan, the band of singer/songwriter Jacco de Greeuw. Many Dutch music

lovers cheered when they heard Johan was to release a new album this year, THX JHN. Jacco de Greeuw

knows the less sunny side of life, which enables him to write perfect popsongs with a melancholy touch, but

also prevents him from releasing them too often which resulted in five long years between the second album

Pergola and THX JHN and between the debut and Pergola. The self titled debut album even got a release in

the US, but not in Argentina. Reason enough for an Argentinian fan to travel more than 10.000 miles to see

her favourite band live. Fortunately you don’t have to travel that far, as Johan is more than happy to undertake

on a European trek.

8. Racoon

9. Pete Philly & Perquisite

> Mellow

Epitaph Europe | roger@epitaph.com | www.ourmindstate.com

Mindstate, the debut album by Pete Philly and Perquisite, takes you back to the glory days when hip hop MCs

made the crowd dance, and when hip hop lyrics used to make people think. As a live band with bass, saxophone

and cello, they’ve toured Europe with Kanye West, Leela James, Dizzee Rascal and Saian Supa Crew,

and rocked crowds at festivals such as North Sea Jazz, Lowlands and Capetown Jazz. Following the release

of Mindstate in Europe and Japan in 2005, the album was also released in America, Canada and Australia in

May 2006 on the ANTI label, home to artists such as Tom Waits, Blackalicious and Michael Franti. The duo is

already planning a second album, but will have to wait until the attention for Mindstate has cooled somewhat

first. Therefore, expect that album sometime around 2015…

10. Postman

> Firing

EMI Music Netherlands | amrita.panday@emimusic.com | www.postman-online.com

Postman is Remon Stotijn, a producer/rapper from Rotterdam. With his debut album Documents, Stotijn scored

four hit singles and the best-selling Dutch hiphop album of all time. With a love for both reggae and hiphop

the music of Postman is an amazing blend of lyrical depth and original music. Although Postman used to be a

trio under the name of Postmen, the impetus behind the band was clearly Stotijn as can be heard on Green, his

fourth album.

> The Great Escape

Universal Music Netherlands

monique.ophorst@umusic.om

www.ilsedelange.com

The Netherlands have their own little piece of Nashville country

and she goes by the name of Ilse de Lange. At the age of 21, Ilse got

to record an album in Nashville and the Dutch woke up: they had a

country star in their midst. World Of Hurt, her much acclaimed debut

album, didn’t pass by unnoticed. A whopping 450.000 albums were

sold, meaning 1 in 32 Dutchies have a copy at home. She got to play

every big venue and festival, something she continued while releasing

the follow up 4 albums, and she also picked up an Edison (the Dutch

equivalent of a Grammy), for her fourth album Clean Up along the way.

Her latest album The Great Escape reached number 1 in the national

charts. Not bad for a girl who used to work in a shoe store, is it?

album got rave reviews in magazines

made THE dance record of 2006. If dance

music is your thing then Aardvarck won’t

16. Arling & Cameron

> Shake It

Marcel van den Broek | marcel@challenge.nl | www.arlingandcameron.nl

Five years after the last time they hooked up together, Arling & Cameron are back with a new album. Hi-Fi

Underground was released on June 3 in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. Arling & Cameron

have released several influential albums, including Music for Imaginary Films, for which they received the

most important music prize in the Netherlands, the Popprijs. The highly danceable and upbeat music of Arling

& Cameron has been used in lots of movies, series and commercials (Austin Powers, Sopranos, Audi, among

others) and is known around the world. It won’t take long before Hi Fi Underground follows that example.

17. Face Tomorrow

> My World Within

Face Tomorrow | info@facetomorrow.net | www.facetomorrow.net

Last year Face Tomorrow’s second album The Closer You Get saw the light of day. Their mixture of pop,

rock, punk and indie has matured even further on this record. The band regularly totals over 400 shows

Goth rock is The Big Thing in Holland currently and it’s fast taking over

Simons be your siren, but don’t be fooled by her looks. This lady

while her band knows how to back her up with a powerful sound.
