HYTE returned to its spiritual homeland of Amsterdam on Friday, October 19th to celebrate its so far biggest event in the city. The venue was Loveland’s massive Mediahaven. Already more then three weeks before the event was fully sold out: Nearly 4,000 ravers danced across three rooms to the soundtracks for this outstanding night created by Chris Liebing, Loco Dice, Pan-Pot, Guti, Andrea Oliva b2b wAFF, Yaya, Benny Rodrigues, Boris Werner, Caleb Calloway, Enzo Siragusa, Samuel Deep, Subb-an B2B Adam Shelton, and Mandana b2b Thabo Getsome.

All three rooms of Mediahaven were dyed in red color from the typical beaming HYTE laser cage when guests arrived at the venue. A seriously music loving crowd came from all over the world to party at this annual HYTE offering. This year’s key design aspects, such as the Moiré patterns which were not only present on the large LED screen made this gathering also a visual HYTE experience. Acoustic key elements of the night were the sets from Serán Bendecidos head honcho Loco Dice, techno super veteran and new Mute Records signing Chris Liebing, Guti, who celebrated his own birthday on that night and played a phenomenal live set, as well as Second State bosses Pan-Pot. wAFF and Andrea Oliva played an exceptional back to back session, Dutch House legend Benny Rodrigues presented a remarkable performance. Absolutely worth mentioning as well were the sets of Yaya and Caleb Calloway, whose performances stood out for delivering quality selections with skillful mixing.
Once again, HYTE has proven its taste to set trends in the underground. And now, attention turns to HYTE New Year’s Eve marathon in Berlin at Funkhaus with Adam Beyer, Amelie Lens, Chris Liebing, Pan-Pot, Richie Hawtin, Stephan Bodzin and many more.
