Hudson Mohawke

Releasing his first solo album in seven years, ’22 was the year that Hudson Mohawke made his long-awaited comeback. An undisputed master at creating musical colour, chaos and (the good kind of) confusion, and executes his wild but poignant visions like no other.

Nusantara Beat

Psychedelic supergroup Nusantara Beat are the latest Dutch band take the genre in bold new directions. Boasting members from Jungle By Night, POM, The Mysterons, Altın Gün, Surf Aid-Kit and EUT's outstanding front woman Megan de Klerk, their shared Indonesian roots are the basis of the outfit, which is inspired by 1970s South East Asian psych-folk. As the name implies, rhythm takes centre stage here – traditional percussion meets a Moog synthesiser and spiralling riffs, the tripped-out beats conjuring an aura of hazy sunshine and hallucinogenic visions.

Parrish Smith (live)

The past year marked a major moment for Parrish Smith; Amsterdam’s cherished club renegade – who’s previously hit Dekmantel Festival over the head with high-velocity DJ sets – finally released the 11-track outcome of years of sonic soul-searching. Debut record ’Light Cruel & Vain’ portrays the artist at his most delicate and most defiant, interweaving all genres close to his heart: from noise and punk to techno and pop. Shrouded in a veil of mystery and surprise, we can’t wait to see Parrish Smith (and his live band) raise hell at Parallel.

Ronald Langestraat

In the early 1980s, Ronald Langestraat was a fixture of the Amsterdam jazz scene, a pioneer of what he calls “space jazz” – a Moog-driven, otherworldly take on the genre. Melding electronic funk and dance with brooding, introspective lyrics, he would play for patrons of the Apollo Hotel, surprising the guests – who might have otherwise expected a sober piano recital – by bringing along modules, a computer and sequencer. Three decades on and Ronald has lost none of his zest for music-making. As bold and foward-thinking as ever, his 2022 album Light Years Away intermingles a drum machine with organic, improvised saxophone, the Dutchman's voice reverberating into the cosmos.
