Skream & Route 94 @ STRAF_WERK ADE

London-born Skream and Route 94 are long time buddies, sharing not only the same last name but also love for the electronic music, more precisely dubstep and deep house. Skream started off by producing dubstep tracks, later forming live music project Magnetic Man with Benga and Artwork. After achieving commercial success, Skream changed his musical direction by incorporating house and disco sound into his sets. Route 94 also commenced his career as a dubstep producer under the name Dream but shortly after he changed his name into Route 94 and released his debut single “My Love” which instantly achieved recognition around Europe, peaking no.1 on UK singles chart.

Straf_Werk party taking place at Overkant during Amsterdam Dance Event was a perfect opportunity for Skream and Route 94 to join forces and deliver a style-changing performance at times raw, at times soulful, but always on point. First part of their set was characterized by darker tech house vibes sometimes interfered with powerful female vocals, while in the other half they introduced groovier and funkier vibes reaching the peak with Martin Solveig’s remix of “Madan” and crowd pleaser “Gotta Let You Go” by Dominica, which added a positive note to the closing of their set.
