What’s your Strictly Rhythm? (All time favourite Strictly track)
Music Scene: The following tracks are currently quite big here.
Quintino & Sandro Silva – Epic this track keeps coming back in every set of almost every DJ and people keep going wild on it.
The second one is In My Mind from Feenixpawl Ft. Georgi Kay (Axwell remix) this is a remix what you hear a lot in the clubs at the moment.
International DJ Scene:
In March I went to Energy (better known as Trance Energy). Some of the big international DJ’s played there like Tiësto, Hardwell, Fedde le Grand, Michael Woods, Eric Prydz, Nervo, Nicky Romero and Sander van Doorn who did two sets one was a special set together with Lucy Taylor who also did the vocals for What Did I Do and many more. They were all amazing!
Earlier in March Erick Morillo was also in Holland to play at his own birthday bash at The Sand, unfortunately I wasen't there but I heard it was an unforgetable night!
There were a lot of massive events happening around my area this spring break including the biggest Trance event of Holland, ASOT500 by Armin van Buuren.
On the weekend of April 6/7/8th Paaspop took place, a festival which is not only about dance music but also pop related, dance music is just a small part of this festival. At this festival DJ’s like Hardwell, R3hab, Dannic, Joeysuki, Bassjackers, Sandro Silva and one of the headliners of these stages: Steve Aoki! Paaspop could be seen as the kick start event of the festival season here in Holland. http://www.paaspop.nl/
