Sat here today it ‘may’ seem like a fair while to wait, but once we start the ‘march’ towards Summer 2010 (see what we’re doing here!) August is going to come rushing up pretty darn quick! We are of course talking about the high point of high summer: the 21st of Aug, and the date of the 2010 Intuition Summer Festival. Menno is keeping info-specifics somewhat close to his chest at the moment. He has though let slip that The Big One will see a venue change and I.S.F.2010 will this year take place at the beautiful, bodacious BLM9 beach club in Boemendaal aan Zee. Line-up details will be released forthwith and you can keep a ready eye on breaking news via the Intuition Events website.
It’s been 3 years since Menno’s first Intuition Sessions album visited South Africa, but the big news is that his compilation series is finally back for its second spin of the disc(s). The heart and mind of 2010’s vol.2 will be actually be city-specific (as opposed to country) and hone in on that nu hot-bed of electronic dance action, Rio de Janeiro. Menno himself has recorded new and exclusive tracks specifically for the album and there is also early-confirmed hot-of-the-desk material from Airbase, Orjan Nilsen & Shane Halcon. Full release date is still awaiting confirmation, but keep watching the Intuition Recordings and Menno de Jong websites, newsletters and social media pages for all the latest breaking on it.
Talking cities Andrea Saenz & Robots Memory score another mark into the Intuition discography this month with ‘London’. The follow-up to their ‘To Amsterdam’ track from summer 2009, the young Columbians have already started to sear speakers all the way from Medellin to Melbourne with their electro-fried, pulse-quickeing floor tension-er!
