2016 ADE Samplers Roundup



The annual Amsterdam Dance Event presents great opportunities for independent House & Techno artists & labels to showcase their tracks. Here’s some that we have come across and really enjoyed

This one’s out on Minar Records and features some excellent Deep/Tech House tracks including M.I.T.A’s remix of ‘Siseta’ by Cyberx & DJ The Fox

Black Habitat is the sister label of Habitat. Based in Mexico, we predict big things from this Techno focused label. Their ADE sampler is a tantalising taster of what’s to come with fine contributions from the likes of Wayne Madiedo and others

LTF’s ADE Sampler features upfront Tech House/Techno offerings from Franky Rizardo, Strike & Streek & Tierap

One label guaranteed to provide awesome content is Onefold Digital. This year’s Onefold ADE sampler delves into a US influenced House sound taking in many elements of the many branches of House & Bass music along the way. The compilation also welcomes on board a collective of rising talent including Bobby Harvey, Ben Read & Dirty Mango. Our favourite track? all of them although we do love Blu Leopard ‘The Intro’


Rawsome Recordings provides an ADE Sampler totally free!! There’s some serious talent here too. How about Greco, DJOKO, Thijs Haal, Jack Swaffer & Richey Profond plus more?

If you’re looking for a nice blend of established and fresh new talent, Amplified’s ADE sampler has tracks by the likes of DJOKO & Thalo Santanaa along with contributions from some awesome new artists like Basement UK. The vibe is dark techy bangers and we love them!!

Swerve Digital’s ADE sampler comes out tomorrow. Keeping in form with the label’s excellent carefully curated back cat this comp is a real treat for lovers of underground House Music. Featuring sterling contributions from Lee Pearce, Ben Read and Gruvem/Avesie plus ACB & Incorporation. This si the sound of a meticulously picked album with a mind for classy production and what the DJ needs to please the crowd.

Reza & Barry Obzee- Who’s The Badman [Instereo Recordings]



Buy Here

Reza & Barry Obzee pay tribute to the 1992 classic ‘Who’s The Badman’ by Dee Patten. The original was a massive crossover track played in House Music and Oldskool Hardcore circles. Reza & Obzee are themselves veterans from that very early rave scene. Their new take on ‘Who’s The Badman’ brings it nicely up to date in a dark Tech House style fitting with the Instereo Recordings style.

Those familiar vocals are nicely blended in with a huge building drop, layered drums and dark bubbling keys. All ingredients for a massive tune for oldskool and nuskool heads alike!!!
