A Sunday A La Playa

Without getting into the random politics and decisions that have been made since our last event at Radion, we treasure the fact that we are currently allowed to have intimate outside gatherings. Therefore, we couldn’t help but plan something on rather short notice and touch base in Nijmegen once more to continue our infamous A La Playa series at the recently opened Stek!

Stek has been on our radar for a while as it’s a project set up by our dear friend Paul who’s been responsible for a significant part of THE TRIBE’s production aspect throughout the years. With nothing but the best intentions he went to great lengths to conceptualise a fresh addition to the industrial Vasim area that sits aside the Waal river. From those thoughts Stek has now finally risen to complement the beachy shore of the river with a place to get your kicks from fresh bites and beverages. Besides that, Stek also provides the right space to set up shop and bring you a more beefy production compared with our previous A La Playa editions.

With Stek we thus found the perfect partner to bring the sandy get-together to a next level and provide you with big sound and a cosy atmosphere. Powering the Funktion One’s are a colourful bunch of spirits that will make this an A La Playa for the books. Kicking off the Sunday afternoon with an extended slot are our very own Romance Brothers. It’s all smiles both behind and in front of the booth while these two are in sync with each other. This, combined with their recent excursions to warm and vigorous house music, is undoubtedly a reason to come out early.

TRIBE mainstay and Yoyaku member Roger Gerressen is a force majeure to say the least. With an ever-growing discography of nuanced dub, techno and lots in between, Roger seems to uphold a supreme flow of inspiration. Besides a set of remixes and singles, the last couple of years has seen him releasing his debut LP on Yoyaku’s main label. We’d recommend you to let that one sink in before you make it to the beach on the 29th.

No stranger to Roger and the rest of the Dilated Pupils crew is Julie Marghilano, as she released multiple records of theirs through the years. Among other projects, Julie delivers straight up quality through her Sol Asylum brand in the form of music and events. This same quality is recognised while the Berlin-based selector controls the decks herself, where she brings out highly danceable selections that’ll go so well with the late afternoon this Sunday.

While the Waal slowly turns black, our Doris Nicholas and Jocelyn will take over. While having shared the same decks multiple times before, a back-to-back set at THE TRIBE was long overdue. The two share a similar knack for tripped-out rhythms that’ll most likely conclude the day with a big bang.

We have already sold out but keep a close eye on our Telegram if you missed out because a follow-up is already brewing..

See you in our dear Nimma soon. ♥️
