For those ravers who can’t wait till the next edition of GIZMO & FRIENDS, we thought it was nice to look back one more time to Easter Sunday. Having said that, we proudly present DJ Gizmo’s latest Livestream, our after-movie, and the coolest party pictures.

This Thursday, we celebrated the one-year book release of Gizmo, een Haags Gabberverhaal with a Livestream from the basement of Mary Go Wild. For those who missed that event, please find the recording here.

We were overloaded with positive reactions after the first edition of GIZMO & FRIENDS. With that in mind, we did our best to edit an after-movie that captured the atmosphere. If you missed it, here is another chance to see it:

DJ POTATO and BASICZ added to line-up

As if it was not enough already DJ Potato and upcoming talent Basicz are added to the DJ GIZMO & FRIENDS line-up. For over 20 years Potato is a household name in the hardcore scene. There are not many DJs in the scene who after all those years behind the turntables have such an enthusiastic and active group of followers. Where Potato plays, the crowd goes wild.

 

Blokes Events proudly announces DJ Potato & DJ Basicz as the last two friends of DJ Gizmo to show their skills. “I am just very excited to perform in The Hague again”, DJ Potato said.

“I have performed only there only two times before: at the Darkravers’ Birthday Bash and a beach party organized by the Outsiders.” Potato was 14 years old when he started his DJ career. He used to shave his head like a potato, that is how his nickname became his artist name, which was more than 20 years ago.

“The crowd in The Hague is always amazing. I am going to play an exclusive set with a lot of flashbacks from the nineties and other old-school samples”, he concluded.

The line-up is now complete: ALL-STAR FRESH will kick off with a one-hour Oldschool at our main stage, and will later challenge Gizmo for a one-time-only scratch battle live on stage. If this is not enough, ROB & MC JOE will take the main stage, followed by BUZZ FUZZ, and STANTON hosted by MANIA MC.

Potato: “These guys are all legends. They meant so much to me growing up in the nineties. They all have typical own style, that is what makes them so good.”

There is more. One stage is just not enough. Blokes Events proudly announces a second old-school rave area: the B-SIDES. At this second stage, BOBBY N will kick off the sound followed by ALEXANDER DE KONING, SEDUCTIVE, VREESTYLE, ANDY RAW, DEFENDOR, and RUFFIAN.

BASICZ
To convince every last one party animal to join us on Easter Sunday Blokes Events has another stage to blow your mind: TECHNO BUNKER. A third stage where the young and very talented DJ BASICZ (22) will kick off the day with one hour set.

Basicz started mixing records at the age of 11, not only to mix tracks but because of his passion for music and the energy it gives him. “The concept of Gizmo & Friends is amazing: a party organized by friends for other friends. Especially now after all those months of lockdown and limitations”, he said.

The line-up is now complete: at our main stage, ALL-STAR FRESH will kick off with a one-hour Oldschool set followed by Jaydee. The legendary grandmaster of the turntables All-Star Fresh will stay a bit longer: he will challenge Gizmo for a one-time-only scratch battle live on stage.

Line-up announcement: DJ All Star Fresh

Not many DJs in the Netherlands are brave enough to challenge Gizmo for a turntable battle live on stage. He is seen by many colleagues in the scene as a technical master. There is one ‘old friend’ that dares to take the challenge for a one-time-only scratch battle:
DJ All-Star Fresh.

Blokes Events proudly announces DJ All-Star Fresh (Guan Elmzoon) live on stage as the next ‘friend’ of DJ Gizmo. After a 45 minutes old-school set he will show the crowd that there is only one Grandmaster behind the turntables. For those who do not remember, it was he who founded the famous pop formation, King Bee, in the late eighties.

DJ All-Star Fresh and Gizmo go way back. They know each other since the mid-eighties when they both hung around on the streets with skateboards in their hands. Breakbeat, rap, and hip-hop were all in the mix. They performed together in the legendary radio show of Robin Albers (DJ Jaydee) and supported each other in the most exclusive venues all over the world.

DJ All-Star Fresh performed at the top of the international rap and hip-hop scene. He is connected to great American performers like Public Enemy, Ice-T, and Setsasonic just to name a few.

Do not miss this unique performance at the special launch edition of GIZMO & FRIENDS on Easter Sunday 17th of April at the PIP in The Hague.

Together with DJ Rob & MC Joe, Buzz Fuzz, Gizmo, All-Star Fresh will blow your mind away.

More big names from the hardcore scene will be announced in the coming days. Keep coming back to this website for more info.

Please be aware that this will be an exclusive event with limited tickets available.
