The first time I ever traveled to Amsterdam, I was exposed to many things from culture, to a new language, to even a new lifestyle. But, one of the thing’s that I left with that is now apart of my everyday life was their music style. It was something I’ve never been to exposed to here in the US, although now it has quickly began to make it’s presence amongst the brooklyn natives, hippies, and underground clubkids.
Try to think of the perfect sunny day driving your bicycle around Soho with some of your closest friends. This type of music, that the site refers to in 3 categories: Vibe, Relax, and Deep, uses various remixes and perfected electronic instrumentals to create the perfect feel good tunes for any mood and anytime of day. The dutch would say the music is gezellig. Locals and foreigners alike will tell you that it’s a word that can’t really be translated, but it’s meaning refers from everything to cozy to friendly, from comfortable to relaxing, to just overall enjoyable or as I said above a good time!
Anyways, the website in which was created by 3 dutch college guys, is a place where all of this music is shared via Soundcloud. “It was after a long and creative night that Martijn van der Does, Lars Valkenburg and Derk Disselhof came up with a brilliant idea: “Let’s share our passion for electronic music with the rest of the world!” The next morning, 1daytrack.com was born and from that moment on, Martijn, Lars and Derk select and share 1 great track a day. Every day, people from around the world follow their well-selected tracks, with more and more people following them every day and the interest in the 1daytrack platform is growing rapidly.”
The site rotates between the guys, and each day 1 track is posted on the site from either of the 3 categories. So everyday allowing the listeners to be exposed to a new piece of music, as well as giving opportunities to new djs and producers a chance to showcase their track.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you check out this site. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
