Juju & Jordash, Palms Trax and Joey Anderson are among those helping represent the Amsterdam brand at five US events.
Five showcases are confirmed around the country. Leading the way, and booked at each event, are two key Dekmantel affiliates: live duo Juju & Jordash and Berlin-based Brit Palms Trax, whose well-reviewed High Point On Low Ground EP saw release in January.
First up on Friday May 6th is Chicago's smartbar, where New Jersey jock Joey Anderson completes the lineup. Those three—or four, to be exact—will then play Good Room in Brooklyn the next night, where Red Bull Music Academy and The Bunker will help host. Dekmantel founders Thomas Martojo and Casper Tielrooij, flying the flag of Dekmantel Soundsystem, and the locally based Antenes are also confirmed for that one.
Friday, May 13th sees Juju & Jordash and Palms Trax swinging through San Francisco for a night at Mighty, and that Saturday they'll link up again with Anderson in LA for a party presented by Far Away, Acid Camp and Fine Time. Dekmantel's stateside trip then winds down in Cambridge at Middlesex Lounge on Monday, May 16th—Juju & Jordash, Palms Trax and Fatima Yamaha, whose reissued cut "What's A Girl To Do" earned the #1 spot on RA's 2015 top tracks poll (and who'll be making a rare US appearance), will represent during Together 2016.
