Over four sweaty weekends in February and March, global event series HYTE is setting up inside Amsterdam’s vast Elementenstraat Warehouse. Over that run, a who’s who of house and techno talent will pass through the building, including HYTE favorites Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice, Chris Liebing and Apollonia. There’s also a collaboration with Movement Detroit featuring a host of Motor City greats, plus a techno dream team of Marcel Dettmann, Robert Hood/Floorplan, Ø [Phase] and more. In short: there’s a whole lot going down between now and Saturday, March 7.

On Saturday, February 21, we’re hosting a special Beatport Live pre-party in collaboration with Twitch. The warehouse warm-up will be in the hands of two Dutch pros: Benny Rodrigues and Boris Werner. Both DJs are stalwarts of the house and techno scene in the Netherlands, with releases between them on leading labels like Rush Hour Recordings, Get Physical, Suara and Desolat. Rodrigues will get things started from 7:30pm CET, before Werner takes over for the second hour.
