Big Beat presents Big Beat Ignition, a new series highlighting a selection of regionally relevant electronic and dance music from around the world.
Unequivocally the most globally embraced genre, dance and electronic music bring together cultures and people to create amazing shared experiences and lifelong memories. From late night bedroom listening to legendary club nights to the festival stages that draw crowds larger than some entire cities, Big Beat Ignition will showcase this world while celebrating and highlighting some of our favorite music creators, from the up-and-coming to the established.
This month we kick things off with the culturally rich city of Amsterdam. For decades the Dutch have made invaluable contributions to global dance music culture, constantly at the forefront of club and dance festival sounds worldwide. Legendary Dutch artists like Tiësto, Armin van Buuren and Ferry Corsten, as well as new icons like Hardwell and Martin Garrix, have all taken some of their first steps in Amsterdam and with ADE around the corner, there’s no better time to celebrate a city and culture so pivotal to the development of global dance music. Big BeatIgnition: Amsterdam will showcase these cultural influences through exceptional club records from buzzing new producers such as Dave Winnel, Madison Mars, Bottai, Roulsen and Cobra Effect amongst others. All the tracks are brand new and unreleased, and will be available exclusively through this compilation.
