Once the crowned prince of the London electro-house scene in the early ‘00s, Alkan – a producer by trade – created a whole trend of rock remixes teaming up with Death From Above, Hot Chip and Justice, to mention but a few. 

As the driving force behind the influential nightclub Trash (launched in 1997), and then later at Bugged Out (from 2001), Alkan went on to make a career out of smashing genres together in the name of electro from his decks (like ‘Blue Monday’ with Kylie’s head song).  
If you’re up for starting the weekend early, this is worth cycling for come rain or shine.

This is about as ‘underground’ as it gets in Copenhagen. A Scandinavian electro-house party with local DJs, cheap beer and the scent of Berlin right in the middle of the famous Kødbyen.

Mike Andersen
The Aarhus singer is strongly influenced by American blues. Recognised for his smooth, pleasurable ballads – that strike the perfect medium between blues and soul – Andersen has admirers on both sides of the Atlantic.
