Between December 14th and 23rd, online magazine Dekmantel Connects will offer a carefully curated programme covering a broad spectrum of electronic music interests.
Dekmantel Connects will stimulate thought and conversation, offers ideas for aspiring music professionals as well as enjoying music, all while making connections between different aspects of the (electronic) music world. In uncertain times, we are grateful to collaborate with Bud and Lynk & Co to make Dekmantel Connects happen. Check the full programme here, or scroll down for more info.
The immersive offerings include Live Acts, which are live-streamed sets from bands, musicians, producers and visual artists. Live acts come from the likes of Altın Gün, Animistic Beliefs, Arp Frique & Family, BEA1991, De Ambassade, Parrish Smith, Peaking Lights and upsammy amongst others
A special series of DJ Shows will see established talents playing back-to-backs with exciting up and coming artists on a special set-up. Both DJs play on their own DJ-set having full control over both their own set and that of their companion. This offers new ways for creativity: from layering multiple tracks to battling it out by surprising each other with selections or skills. On the bill are Lena Willikens & Merel Rhizoom, Sandrien (house-set) & Fafi Abdel Nour, Cinnaman & Nala Brown, Intergalactic Gary & mad miran, DJ Marcelle & my name is not mata, amongst others.
Panels, Workshops & In Conversation With
A core part of the offerings will be the Panels and Workshops, which are hosted by experts in their field. Both programme parts see artists, creatives and thought-leaders from both inside and outside of the Dutch music industry to discuss subjects such as Creativity amidst a pandemic and Building, nourishing and growing a local community, Mixing & mastering: understanding the basics with MarcoAntonio Spaventi, Music rights and alternative income streams for independent artists with Donelle Kosch and Finding funding: where to start? with Femke Dekker. A series of intimate one-on-one Q&As with Jameszoo, DJ Marcelle and Cinnaman rounds off this artist-focused activity.
