Since the 1990s, Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) has transcended and transformed into an influential and educational gathering for electronic music. The event has hosted a variety of powerful musical genres and subcultures that continue to range from the experimental to mainstream. As a powerful medium, ADE strongly showcases all developments within the electronic music industry, and these developments have all impacted dance culture to this day on a global scale.

Hosting slam-down performances at this year’s Amsterdam edition, fans can expect more of the same euphoric feelings for ADE’s Friday night, with sultry sessions from the likes of Floating Points, Fatima Yamaha, and Jayda G — who already proved her skills as a dancing instructor during last year’s gig at DGTL ADE 2021.

On Saturday, October 22, Speedy J and the STOOR crew return to Paradiso for a second chapter. STOOR live is a fully improvised hardware jam between changing musicians, led by techno great Speedy J.
Stage design, light, and a team of video artists are directed by spatial designer Karl Klomp — especially for STOOR, he designed a stage and video design that bridges the gap between audience and artist fades. By means of robotic cameras and video hardware hacks on an LED video object, image and sound become a symbiosis of unbridled electronics.
