The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the world’s leading conference and festival for electronic music returned this year for its 17th and most record breaking event to date – attracting over 3,800 business delegates and 200,000 festival visitors – including 1,700 artists from 62 countries, performing across 75 venues.

This year saw thrilling performances from Bucks writers including Carl Cox, Radioslave, and Richard Earnshaw, as well as shows from drum and bass legends D-Minds at Chew The Fat’s 15th birthday, Marco Bailey at Intec Digital’s label night and an exclusive Amsterdam Boiler Room set from Rekids goddess Nina Kraviz. If that wasn’t enough, our Dutch friends Talpa Music, had the likes of Afrojack, Nicky Romero, Sunnery James, Ryan Marciano and Laidback Luke host a number of sold-out shows across the city.

As our ears ring out for another year post-ADE, please take a moment to check our 2012 ADE sampler — featuring new tracks from Alex Metric, Nina Kraviz, Astronaut, Fantastic Mr Fox and Sway to name but a few.
