10 years of Dave Clarke presents at ADE Festival
Dave Clarke’s legendary techno night at the Melkweg is celebrating its tenth anniversary with Green Velvet, Gary Beck, Stacey Pullen and Daniel Miller amongst others.
For many years Clarke has been hosting his renowned club night during ADE at The Melkweg and always aims to present cutting-edge alternative dance music with a fine balance between established names and new talent. This fully packed night is charged with a fantastic atmosphere and has deservedly gained somewhat of an iconic status for Dutch techno lovers and international clubbers alike. Need prove? Tune into some of last year’s sets at our music and videos page.
This years special milestone will be celebrated on Friday October 17 with an extensive line-up including Green Velvet, Gary Beck, Stacey Pullen, Daniel Miller, Clouds, Pfirter, Estroe, Jeff Rushin & Nicole Rosie, Mr Jones and obviously The Baron of Techno himself.
Green Velvet and Stacey Pullen were both early adapters within the American electronic music scene and their influences are still resonating throughout present-day techno and house music. Daniel Miller is label boss of Mute Records, one of the defining labels within the British new wave, industrial and techno sound with countless releases of artists such as Depeche Mode, Apparat, Luke Slater and Goldfrapp.
One of the main names in today’s techno scene is Gary Beck, playing at events such as Awakenings and other large-scale festivals across the globe. Pfirter has been making a name for himself in South-America for more than 10 years, now renowned world-wide as one of the new great techno artists with releases on labels such as Chris Liebing’s CLR.
A fresh new techno sound is provided by Clouds, known from Tiga’s Turbo Recording and currently dictating the more heavy sound of techno, paving the way for the future. A fine dose of home-grown talent complete the night, with DJ sets by Dave Clarke Presents resident Estroe, Jeff Rushin & Nicole Rosie, along with Clarke’s producing partner Mr Jones.
