We just released the first edition of “The Incredible Shrinking Band”. In this new video series, we shrink bands to a tiny size to play a tiny live session in the tiniest house next to Paradiso. ‘Cause what do you do when it’s impossible for music creatives to live and thrive in Amsterdam? When all space is taken up by greed? When the cost of living goes up up up?You use every single little tiny space you’ve got, and shrink your dear musicians. Until the love for music in this city grows bigger than the greed that goes around, we need to find different ways to create space for musicians.
LET’S CREATE GIANTS!
Watch it here
The first band that we’ve shrunk is Dragonfruit, performing their new track “Honeymoon Phase”. The Rotterdam based foursome was born out of a mutual love for sample-hiphop and neo-soul. After their debut album Gears of the Giant Machine, they’re back with their EP Honeymoon Phase.
