Since June 2021 we have teamed up with local initiatives CultureHub and FOCUS to host live listening sessions. Every month, upcoming DJ talent is selected to showcase their extraordinary taste and skills on the decks.
For October’s edition, artists Winterdagen and Iamhotel were invited. Mink Steekelenburg (Winterdagen), whose releases we have been following for some time, provided us with a ninety minutes set.
Marijn de Zeeuw, who recently graduated as a filmmaker at Breda’s St. Joost School of Art & Design and now lives in Rotterdam, was at CultureHub on October the 21st to document these performances. We hope you enjoy them.
“For my Every day is Friday x FOCUS listening session, I’ve chosen to play some of my favourite ambient, (neo-)classical and experimental records of the moment. Playing a DJ-set just for listening was a very nice experience. Instead of making sure the dance floor is happy, or that everyone has a great time, I could really dive deep into my collection of more experimental music. For instance, I loved making a mash-up of Greg Haines’ ‘Azure’ and Moses Sumney’s ‘Doomed’. Playing experimental guitar music and piano classics by Bach in one set felt great” – Winterdagen
