ADE 2019 is right around the corner, and –as always– with ADE comes countless label showcases, conferences and other special events. With the big event kicking off on Wednesday, it’s about that time for its attendees to get their schedules filled up and organized for their soon-to-be busy weekend. Though I won’t personally be in attendance at ADE this year, I have found some excitement in seeing special events announced featuring some of my favorite artists and labels. One particular event that caught my attention was the recently-announced “Tasty Showdown” hosted by –you guessed it– Tasty Network.
The Tasty Showdown marks Tasty’s debut at ADE, a fact that is quite surprising considering how big of a player it has been in the dance music promo game for so many years (debatably the biggest in electro house). Beyond that, the network’s label has put out a slew of successful & groundbreaking records, such as TheFatRat’s “Xenogenesis,” Snail’s House’s “Grape Soda” and The Noisy Freaks’ Straight Life album.
As expected, Tasty’s showcase at ADE is set to host a fire-powered lineup of artists, featuring some of the hottest rising acts in bass music, in addition to names both familiar and unfamiliar to Tasty’s promotional catalog. If I were attending ADE, the performances from Apashe, Snavs and F.O.O.L would already be enough for me to want to lock in some tickets, but the once-in-a-lifetime B2B from Inverted Silence & Volant would really push me over the edge. See the promotion video below for the full lineup:
The Tasty Showdown is slated to take place on Friday (Oct. 18th) from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. at Desmet Studio’s Amsterdam. Tickets for the event are available here, and more information is available on the event page. Be sure to also follow Tasty on their socials (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for updates!
