Dekmantel Soundsystem (Netherlands)
“Dekmantel has established itself as one of the most in-demand clubbing brands in the world.”
The Dekmantel Soundsystem crew have firmly established themselves as kings of high quality musical enjoyment in more than one way. The Dutch collective spearheaded by Thomas Martojo and Casper Tielrooij are responsible for a revered underground label, much loved festivals and a Soundsystem DJ crew that cover many different bases. Dekmantel Soundsystem, which sees Thomas and Casper dig deep into their record bags and play mesmeric back to back to back sets that are full of seductive surprises and groovy gems, offers a tasteful and 360 degree take on electronic music that has truly helped put the Netherlands and its scene on the map in recent years. Their first appearance in Slovenia will see them take over the main floor of club K4 with a 3-hour set.
Amsterdam’s Dekmantel Festival is a must for anyone interested in the electronic scene of today. So far, two editions were held in São Paulo. The team also organizes the festival Lente Kabinet in Amsterdam and puts on the deep-digging seaside festival Dekmantel Selectors in Tišno, Croatia. In 2016, their label was named Mixmag’s Label of the Year. Its catalogue includes many influential compilations and solo albums featuring the likes of Robert Hood, Juju & Jordash, Matrixxman, Palms Trax, Call Super, Peaking Lights and others. In between the Dekmantel podcast series (featuring more than 250 podcasts and counting) represents the artists Dekmantel connects with most, embodying their musical variety and broadening their horizon.
