A couple of years ago, Resident Advisor released a collection of short films between 20 and 30 minutes, picturing the electronic music scene in different cities worldwide. They were shown two years ago during Sónar by Day in Barcelona and as well last Fall at the Amsterdam Dance Event. These little masterpieces are a nice insight into a scene that constantly changes, lives and struggles, even for those who never really gave it a try.
Yesterday I played tourist for another good while, I walked all the way up to the city centre. For me it’s kind of ironic, because I don’t really need a map anymore to get around, especially when it comes to go the popular districts of the city. Amsterdam still surprises me though, because everytime I think I saw it all, I see new places like cafés, galleries and stores pop out of the blue that I never knew about it.
