Decoded Magazine, The Sessions and Club NL teams up for ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) to present Perspectives Digital label owner Darin Epsilon and legendary Jaydee (Plastic Dreams), Sunday 19th October. After our events this year with Hernan Cattaneo in Amsterdam and Mauritius, not to mention our forthcoming event with Guy J, we have teamed up with good friend C-Jay of The Sessions in Amsterdam. Since 2001 The Sessions have been responsible for some of Holland’s most legendary parties, including Viva Warriors head honcho Steve Lawler, Quivver, James Holden, Chris Fortier, Eelke Kleijn to Selador’s Dave Seaman. In 2004, The Sessions expanded out to forming a record label with artists as 16 Bit Lolitas and Marc Pollen. Some of our very own Decoded Magazine’s Jaap Ligthart and Brian Cody are also residing on the labels roster.
Headlining our official closing party is none other then Perspectives Digital label owner, Darin Epsilon.
Internationally acclaimed DJ, producer, radio host, and label owner Darin Epsilon is often referred to as a leader of the Progressive & Tech House scene. His Perspectives radio show and podcast, along with his frequent guest appearances on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio allow him to reach tens of thousands of listeners on a regular basis. His SoundCloud page alone has over 1 MILLION total plays and receives a whopping 10,000 plays per week. He launched his record label Perspectives Digital in November 2010 as an extension of the brand, further solidifying his influence and presence within the global dance community. To top it all, he was named one of the winners in John Digweed & Beatport’s DJ Competition during the summer of 2011.As a gifted student of music from an early age, former record shop employee, and former director of a college radio station, Darin draws inspiration from his nearly encyclopedic knowledge and genuine appreciation of electronic music. He cites a variety of important influences in the past decade, from the early Leftfield and Future Sound of London albums, to the iconic Global Underground compilation series, to the sweeping sounds of Paul Oakenfold circa 1999, to Sasha & Digweed’s mind-blowing Delta Heavy tour in 2002.
To date, Darin has released music on many of the industry’s most respected labels including Renaissance, Sudbeat, Hope Recordings, Perfecto, Armada and Black Hole. His productions have entered Beatport’s Top 100 charts numerous times and are featured in the compilations of Nick Warren, Hernan Cattaneo, Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Paul Oakenfold, and Max Graham, among many others.
Supporting the night is legendary Jaydee. Jaydee started his career as DJ as a radio host on music and sport programs in The Netherlands for eleven years (one of them was elected “best Dutch dance show” three times) and was the organiser of the annual Dutch Mixing Championship (DMC) five times.
In 1992 under the pseudonym Jaydee, he released the hit, “Plastic Dreams”, which reached number-one on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The song, an instrumental, featured a prominent Hammond organ style synthesizer melody, played in a jazzy, improvised manner. “Plastic Dreams” continues to be remixed and re-released today, mostly on unsolicited white labels. The track has made the UK Singles Chart on two occasions; firstly in September 1997 when it reached number 18, and again in January 2004 when it reached number 35. With this big hit, Albers decided to create his own record label, First Impression.
