International music and talent booking agency MN2S are proud to announce details of their always-packed ADE showcase for 2017, with three absolute legends and pioneers of house music at the helm. MN2S have handpicked three of the true architects of the genre as we know it to give the ADE crowd a serious house music history lesson.
Roger Sanchez has been a majorly resurgent force in the scene in recent years, launching a second label, Undr The Radar, to provide more underground sounds alongside the well-established Stealth Records. Back in the studio with various collaborators, his productions have once again laid waste to dancefloors the world over, continuing his impressive heritage that included chart smash ‘Another Chance’ and countless classic tracks throughout the ‘90s. His incessant touring schedule continues to take him far and wide across the world.
Few producers have a body of work so prolific and influential as Todd Terry, whose seminal work begin in the acid house heyday of the late ‘80s before he defined the sound of a genre through countless remixes and aliases in the ‘90s. The GRAMMY-winning producer continues to deliver dancefloor bombs at an incredible rate, with his InHouse Records label supporting the new generation alongside his own formidable output. Taking in all walks of house music in his sets, he has an incredible catalogue to draw from and has spawned hundreds of imitators over the years.
A Guy Called Gerald flies the flag for the UK, reminding us that it wasn’t just the American legends who helped to build the sound we know as house. From the stone-cold classic ‘Voodoo Ray’ through to his excursions into drum & bass and more recently his sublime analog house and techno workouts that join the dots between his origins and the output that followed, he has always been one of the scene’s most innovative forces. His resolutely underground sounds create the perfect compliment to Sanchez and Terry, making this a truly special line-up of DJs who will cover much ground across the night.
Taking place as always at the intimate Sugarfactory, MN2S’s ADE party will be driven by the venue’s thumping sound system and electric atmosphere and is always one of the highlights of the Dutch festival’s schedule.
