XLR8R Podcast 395: Dekmantel Soundsystem - Dekmantel Festival 2015 Edition


Thomas Martojo and Casper Tielrooij warm us up for the big throwdown with a sprawling set of tunes

Bruce Tantum, XLR8R — July 14, 2015

Festival season is in full swing—has all the action worn you out yet? Of course you're not—with so much great music and fun times, there's no way you're going to let sunburn, ringing ears, a case of sleep deprivation or a depleted bank account get in the way of having a great time. Especially not right now, when one of the biggest and best electronic-music fests of the year is just around the corner. We're talking, of course, about Dekmantel, held from Thursday, July 30 through the following Sunday, in the idyllic surroundings of theAmsterdam Bos—you can camp right on the site if you like—with daily excursions into the city center. And what a lineup! Kosmische-musik maestro Manuel Göttsching and Autechreopen the proceedings with a night at the MuziekgebouwAndy StottDJ Harvey, Luke VibertSurgeon, and Derrick May are among the groundbreaking artists playing Melkweg; and Four TetBen KlockSquarepusherRicardo VillalobosShed, and Motor City Drum Ensemble are just a sampling of the DJs and producers rocking the rhythms in the Bos itself. And let's not forget the DJs most associated with Dekmantal, Thomas Martojo and Casper Tielrooij—better known as Dekmantel Soundsystem. The pair are much more than a couple of guys who spin tunes: Martojo and Tielrooij are the the men behind the belovedDekmantel label, and the force behind the the three-year-old festival itself, among many other claims to fame. But they are very good DJs as well, of course, as you'll discover via this sprawling set that takes in everything from Liaisons Dangereuses and AFX to the Nick Straker Band and Paul McCartney. In the run-up to the big party, Martojo was kind enough to take some time out to answer a few questions about the mix.
