This is Trouw Club, Amsterdam, NL
Located in a former Dutch newspaper building, this revamped industrial space is one of the most important reference points on the electronic music map right now. A look at the diverse programming, past guests and the fact RA chose to host a leg of its recent RA X event series there should tell you all you need to know about this special club, as important to Amsterdam as Berghain & Fabric are to Berlin and London respectively.
Little hype needed for this, the party is capped at a deliberately intimate 350 to allow those in the know to get close and personal with the key Trouw residents, Patrice Baumel, Melon & San Proper. Its the first experience of a Trouw party like this in London, with such amazing talent together in such an intimate space.
We hope you can join us. This is Trouw
Patrice BÃ¤umel is a German electronic musician who has been living in Amsterdam for the last 14 years. Before fully committing his life to making music, he had a carreer in teaching, computer programming and design. Behind the decks or in the studio, Patrice tries to combine and mix contrasting elements, play with surprising dynamics. Man vs machine, warm vs cold. It is the reoccurring theme in his tracks, podcasts and dj sets.
Patrice has gained a rock solid reputation worldwide through his productions for labels like Get Physical, Trapez or Studio !K7. Remix work includes mixes for Booka Shade or Bomb The Bass. Together with Nuno Dos Santos he forms â€œ360â€, a cutting edge dj and production duo. Their monthly residency at Trouw is a wild display of new school electronic dance music. As a co-owner of the new Trouw label and booking agency, Patrice is involved in many aspects of today's music business.
Melon is a natural artist, a DJâ€™s DJ who has managed to gain residencies and regular bookings at some of the worldâ€™s finest clubs purely by being great at spinning records, such as Fabric, Robert Johnson or Panorama Bar.

Timeless house in all its glory and variety which can be witnessed at his monthly â€œRatio?â€ residency at Trouw.
