FORMAT brings u the After After After NYE
Kickstart the year 2014; on friday january 3 AIR serves u a new edition of FORMAT, the NYE After After After. Wipe those dried out snacks in the trash and call your grandma to move that new year drink to the next weekend; it’s time to favour the gods at FORMAT.
We start the new year in style with Shinedoe, DeWalte (live), Makcim and Limon. And a NYE After After After would be no After After After whith the doors closing at 5, so that’s why this edition will go on tillll 6.


No time to feel sorry about those failed new year resolutions; DeWalta goes live! DeWalta has his Amsterdam premiere at FORMAT. It will be his first performance in our capital city. He’s one of the biggest underground talents in the minimal techno scene. For our die hard techno lovers; thinks thick smoothly produced basslines. DeWalta’s warm, funky minimal techno finds his origin in many musical styles, mainly jazz. DeWalta a.k.a. David Koch learned himself to play the piano at the age of 10 and was giving jazzclub performances by the time he was 13. He also learned to play the saxophone and had no trouble writing his own compositions. DeWalta was drawn to Berlin like a magnet to a fridge. The Berlin jazzscene introduced him to electronic  music and the rest is history. In 2007, he started his own recordlabel Meander, on which he released his first records.

One of Amsterdams technopearls is Shinedoe, the woman who knows how to spin a set full surprises and variety, crossing the tech-house and techno borders. Her tracks got played by dj’s like Sven Väth and Richie Hawtin. Shinedoe is not only a dj and producer, but also label owner at Intacto Records. This Amsterdam resident has spinned at all renowned Dutch stages, parties, festivals and has also started a succesfull international career.

We could easily start making wodka jokes about the Russian roots of Makcim but his skills as a dj prevent it. Makcim knows how to mix house and techno into a refreshing set with sexy grooves. He releases amazing tunes on the famous Remote Area record label together with his musical partner in crime Managemend. Makcim has played his vinyl in the Berlin Watergate, Club der Viosnaere and Arena club. Clubs in Moscow, Munchen and Kopenhagen have enjoyed his company as well.
Every first friday of the month AIR is breathing techno music. Host Juan Sanchez is scouting the whole world for the producers and dj's of tomorrow and is always having an eye out for new talent. Visuals during this night always receive extra attention. Thanks to new rules and permits AIR2 will host the after hour. FORMAT is always seeking chances to spread its wings into new territory with stages at Valhalla, Amsterdam Open Air and last summers appearance in Ibiza.
