During the second to last week in October of this year, the annual Amsterdam Dance Event festival took place in 52 venues across the city of Amsterdam. ADE is very similar to Miami’s Winter Music Conference, in that they both include DJ workshops, demonstrations, interviews, and of course live performances for the thousands of visitors. Sander van Doorn is one of those DJs that has been tearing up dance floors around the world for quite a while now. Here is is solo set from the first day of the ADE festival this year, recorded from the Escape party by BBC Radio’s Essential Mix. He also had a back to back set with Ferry Corsten, but that one is not as impressive. I like this mix because it is very similar to what he played when he was down here in San Diego a few weekends ago. I heard many of the same songs live, including Rocket Fuel, Bang Bang, Maximal Crazy, Alive, and of course all of the new tracks from his new album. The Matteo DiMarr rework of Radiohead’s Creep is also downright amazing. As usual the mixing is flawless, and I have come to expect nothing less from Sander. He has, however, seemed to venture towards more of an electro inclination, which I do not prefer but cannot complain about. This set is still pretty awesome and it plays well from start to finish.
