In August FURTHER returns to its home at RADION as a monthly Residency
DJ Bone’s FURTHER launched last summer running as a socially distanced, sit down, weekly at RADION. Offering a much-needed respite to the darkness that had engulfed us all. With lockdown restrictions now lifting in Amsterdam from July, it is time to look ahead to a return of raving as we used to know it. Time away has offered a chance to consider what we can offer that gives back to the culture, it is an opportunity to establish a real institution by relaunching FURTHER as a monthly club residency, running the first Saturday of the month at RADION.
The significance of the club residency can’t be underestimated; it gives artists the opportunity to build a tight knit community around the party, regulars know what they are in for, and word of mouth spreads the vibe and new guests arrive to check out the experience. The residency becomes by extension a community hub, for shared ideals, values, and experiences. A place to discover new acts, enriching reputations, taking things FURTHER.
Drawing on the vibe from the residencies he had coming up. Bone’s idea is to have top quality music from the first song to the last song. It’s not going to be the artist’s regular set; it's going to be people bringing their A game. Different styles outside their usual vibe. Taking the interment, friendly feeling of bringing people into his living room that was created at the original FURTHER and turning it into a house party. RADION’s multiple rooms and layout allows for us to create the old warehouse feel of a different mood in different rooms whilst not losing the intimacy which makes FURTHER unique.
The mastermind, alongside manager and wife Ahnne Araza, DJ Bone’s role will be mixed, whether opening or closing the party, or not performing at all if he does not fit the vibe. He will be omnipresent with the careful curation of each monthly show. With RADION offering a blank canvas to create their vision.
Enlisting residents Jordan GCZ and JP Enfant (Upper/Main Room), Mr. Andy & Freddy and Ok_Tony (Chill Lounge), will be championing the same music values shared by Bone.
They will be joined by an ever-revolving cast of characters both established headline acts, legends and emerging talent will be featuring. Already lined up over the coming months are Anastasia Kristensen, Ben Sims, Deetron, KiNK, Luke Slater, Spencer Parker, Ken Ishii, Dave Angel, The StoryTellers, Juliana Huxtable, Sherelle, K-Hand, Nastia, DR. Rubinstein, Laurent Garnier, Derrick Carter and many more to follow.
As Bone Says “I want to transform the environment physically and auditorily. Help break new music and foster new talent; I don't believe in social media as the springboard for DJ’s, it should be what they can do in the booth... That's what a residency was about. It is about listening to the new tracks that’s hot before the hype. It’s about the old school values that used to be prevalent. It is about great music produced by great artists played by great DJs.”
