▬▬ TREEHOUSE 2017 ▬▬
We are back once again with some 12 'til 12 non-stop open air stuff!
▬▬▬▬▬ TUNES ▬▬▬▬▬
✔ Marcellus Pittman Unirhythm
Unirhytm | Detroit USA
We are extremely honoured to place one of our favourite house producers of recent years, mister (and legend) Marcellus Pittman, on our bill. Malik has been around since the Motor City still had actual inhabitants, and has collaborated with almost everyone worth their salt in comtemporary Detroit. Together with Rick Wilhite, Theo Parrish, Kenny ‘Moodymann’ Dixon, this man formed the Detroit superhero slash supermusicians team '3 Chairs'. Expect a set filled to the brim with proper bangers!
✔ Tornado Wallace
Running Back | Melbourne AUS
'G'day mate, how ya' goin?' Time to polish your australian English as we have invited not one but two amazing musicians from Down Under. The first one is an excellent producer, now currently living in Berlin, who released on labels such as ESP Institute and Music From Memory. You will be submerged in a bath of disco, harder electronics, and classic party-ready anthems. This year he just released his debut album, Lonely Planet, on Gerd Janson’s acclaimed Running Back label.
If you miss the bloke's set, you're a fortunate dumbass, as you can catch him later this summer at Pukkelpop (where the drinks are muy muy expensivo).
Dopeness Galore | Melbourne AUS
Our second aussie is (un)fortunately not Crocodile Dundee, no we've found something wayyy better in the outback! A real jack of all trades: music producer, soundtrack composer, radio host, and (we almost forgot) deejay. Andrew Wilson, also known for his alias 'Art Wilson' (check the amazing, often dreamy Overworld album), uses melancholic sounds of soul and jazz, enjoyable in both club and bedroom. In both scenario's things often end with a bang (no sexual innuendo)!
✔ DJ Okapi
Afrosynth | Johannesburg ZA
Last year we had so much fun listening to all the rare African gems Awesome Tapes From Africa brought, so we concluded this year shall not be different. We called Dj Okapi, the guy behind blog and recently opened record shop in Jo'burg 'Afrosynth' to come over! Expect funky, and often forgotten, South African grooves. Eksie perfeksie!
Stroom.tv | Oostende BE
The second time we've invited this strange human being. Half wizzard named Ziggy, half online female radio channel named STROOM, this living music encyclopedia absolutely torched our treehouse a few years ago. Lit, as millennials would say.
22tracks | Gent BE
Originaly hailing from somewhere in the outer rim of our universe, in a galaxy far far away named "tWaasland", this incredibily charming guy did some quality work behind the scenes at 22tracks and KERK Gent. Sam will lead the drunk caravan of raving partypeople for the first few hours of our musical expedition. So come early (and stay late)!
All served on a top notch Soundsystem powered by Funktion-One!
