Floorplay 8th birthday
28th May 2016
C-Jay (Bedrock, The Sessions)
Paul Sparkes (Floorplay)
Floorplay are delighted to celebrate an incredible milestone. What started as a night to play our tracks and invite our friends to party has turned into a movement. A movement which has seen us turn in over 100 events with some of the best DJ talent in the world. 8 years of consistently sold out events, great tunes, queues outside the door and the best atmosphere. Come help us celebrate on May 28th at Floorplay’s spiritual home, Club NL, downtown Amsterdam. The 8th birthday celebrations sees Floorplay invite a true pioneer of the Dutch progressive house scene, C-Jay.
C-Jay has a long history of involvement with music. His The Sessions parties, numerous releases on the cream of the world’s respected music labels such as Baroque, Iboga and Armada, and a quality progressive sound that is now en vogue once more. This Dutchman´s dedication to his own interpretation of forward-thinking music means he is firmly established as an international artist, and in his native Holland he is now mentioned in the same breath as fellow Dutch prog DJs Per and Remy for consistent contributions to the scene.
After many years of production, this hard-working Dutch DJ/producer has enjoyed a real renaissance of late. 2015 saw him sign to John Digweed’s Bedrock Records. C-Jay has released a full album entitled BackSlider on the legendary imprint. The LP is a 1 hour musical experience split into 6 parts. John decided to feature BackSlider Part 1 on his Underground Sound of Ibiza 2 compilation and BackSlider Part 3 on his Live in Montreal comp. Hard work really does pay off. C-Jay’s rigorous studio output means he has a hectic summer in store, with slots scheduled for Pleasure Island festival, Mystic Garden festival, Wasteland, Recycle Lounge and a secret under the radar summer festival to be announced soon.
Floorplay resident Paul Sparkes is delighted to welcome C-Jay, who will play an exclusive 3 hour set, with Sparkes himself putting on his proggy clogs to spin the deeper hypnotising melodies of the progressive kingdom on this special 8 year anniversary event. Please remember to arrive early for this event at Club NL, Floorplay has been extremely busy of late so don’t miss the birthday edition on 28 May
