Café Pakhuis Wilhelmina, Amsterdam
Delsin and Disco Exota join forces and organize a new clubnight in honor of Chicago House music: SPANK SPANK. To start with we would like to thank all those who made Spank Spank the first edition in a sweaty, strobey and smoking success full of positive energy!
For the second edition we fly in one of the skillful House masters of Chicago: DJ Traxx! DJ Traxx aka. Melvin Oliphant, deeply rooted in the Chicago House scene for many years, is highly recognized for his raw and deep House music productions and for his energetic and psychedelic DJ-sets. A musician like no other. Not content to be labelled as merely a DJ, a producer, or even a DJ/Producer, Traxx is a lover of music—one with a passion so intense that it overcomes genre divides to weave an altogether original, exciting, and multi-textured musical fabric. From an early age, Traxx lived the evolution of house music into something much more than just an underground phenomenon, and for this reason, he has a deep understanding of the history of the sound, and a clear picture of its future. Under different aliases like Dirty Criminals, Saturn V, Maniacs and X2 he released music on some of the legendary House labels it all started with, like Muzique records, Relief records and Gigolo. Together with his soul mate James T Cotton, he creates stripped down pulsating tracks and slamming powerful acid house cuts, reminding of the true Chicago House sounds we love so much by Mike Dunn, Armando, Adonis and the likes. The party will be heated up by two of our resident jocks, Amsterdam’s finest ambassadors of the true housesound: DJ’s Gstring and Aroy Dee. Need we say more! We would be delighted to welcome you at Spank Spank the 5th of may!
