MYAmsterdam Kicks Off At Station Centraal
ADE is bringing some of its biggest artist names to Amsterdam's main point of arrival, the forecourt outside Central Station. MYAmsterdam features top DJs in an extension of MusicTalks which will be held in the IAMsterdam store in front of Central Station. It’s a small room with a capacity of only 50 people, surrounded by glass windows, so even if you can't get in to the venue itself, you can watch the action from outside! All the artists involved in the MYAmsterdam series have a close connection with Amsterdam. Some because they were born here and lived here all their lives, others are artists that have been significantly inspired by the city and its culture, and some are people that moved to Amsterdam because of its music scene! Entrance is free for everyone, and on a first come first served basis! From Wednesday to Saturday ADE will host three or four interviews per day.
Thomás Goethals, better known as The Flexican, was born in Mexico City in 1983. He grew up surrounded by all sorts of music genres, from Latin to Rock. As a result, Thomás became fascinated by music at a young age. When he was about nine years old he moved to the Netherlands, where he met his neighbour and best friend Yousef Gnaoui (Sef). Soon electronic music and hip-hop got his attention and he decided this was going to be his future.
Thomás attended the School for Audio Engineering in Amsterdam. This unmistakably contributed to the fact that The Flexican is now one of the most technical DJ’s in the Dutch music scene. Over the years The Flexican developed his sound and style from hip-hop, to house and even sounds that are not definable yet. Always trying to be ahead of the game, this true perfectionist is constantly reinventing himself and his music.
