Not that long ago, when I was living in Amsterdam, I was surrounded by the most amazing group of friends. Somehow we all met at a peak time in our lives, where hedonism was everything and sleep was hard to come by. This is the soundtrack to those days, which came to a climax in 2009. Included are tunes for parties, hangovers and everything in between. It is best enjoyed on the rocks.

Here's a shout out to Max, Nina, Rigel, Justin, Josha, Sietze, Dorothy, Diana, Nate, Laura and everybody else that got sucked into the Barge Brothers vortex and survived.

Good times!

  2. you should have stayed. i'm having my own amsterdamage moments this past year and saw your mix on 8 tracks. now deciding whether to give it up and head back to oz or stay here and keep dreaming of being young/irresponsible for ever.. leaning towards the latter ;)

  3. It sounds like you are not ready to leave the dirty Dam. Enjoy it while you can! You'll know when it's time to leave...
