CHEETAH is turning 1! Exactly Gaypride, 1 year ago, we emerged from the backroom to the front. With our concept we’re combining old and new, Disco, House and Soulful stuff! So you are like, Cheetah strikes again!!! Yes, we do!! And, again it’s a very personal booking.. Basically there are one or two stories to be told.
Last year Danny (Psychemagik) invited me to play at the Magik Forrest festival, in England. Where a bunch of children of the Balearic revolution gathered for three days to celebrate a very intimate, private dream, that can only exist if you are with friends, among friends. That’s where I ran into Can, aka Jonny Rock aka The Old School Rider, a bear of a man, gentle and kind, with amazing taste and skillz on the decks. We connected a bit more and at some point I realized I have a couple of his records and with his 44 Years, he is been around and done almost everything you can do, when you are a DJ. Most importantly: Everybody I know loves him and he makes me fucking happy when he plays.
Same with the Italian Severino, as one fourth of the Horse Meat Disco crew. He’s been a Londoner for the past 20 years and rolling up the crossroads between Disco and House on a worldwide scale. He is a sweet darling, who is traveling each week around the world between festivals and clubs, darkrooms and bathrooms. We’ve been DJing together before, running into each other in Berlin and London every now and then. So, he was a very natural choice to ask for the Amsterdam gaypride Weekend…
The ever-smiling Moody Mehran you know watching the Rotterdam and Amsterdam scene, and Mr Mendel hasn’t been missing even one Cheetah party. So, lace up your dancing shoes, your tight skirt, your hot pants, your muscles shirts and Disco Queens, we are going to have a ball here!
