Chordify records a unique session with EUT during Eurosonic on the Martini Tower
Chordify, in collaboration with V2 Records and In the Kringloop (In the Thrift Shop, IDK) is recording a music session with the pop band EUT. Nothing very special or outlandish one could think, but … the band is going to be playing together with the carillon player of the Martini Tower, all the way at the top of the tower!
EUT is an Amsterdam-based pop formation that put themselves on the musical radar in 2017 with their single “Supplies.” Two years later they have been declared best act of Noorderslag 2018 and labeled focal point of music streaming service Deezer.
So, EUT is working hard to be heard get their music out there. They have recently released an album at V2 Records called Fools For The Vibes. To promote this album the record company initiated the Martini Tower session. Richard Branson, founder of V2, came up with the idea and personally contacted the media partners, the tower, and the carillon player.
IDK is a collective based in Zwolle, the Netherlands. They began with sporadic recordings of artists in thrift shops, and have now matured into a full-fledged music video collective. Now they record sessions during festivals and events in their own idiosyncratic and creative ways.
IDK collaborates with Chordify, a music-education platform with locations in Groningen and Utrecht. The company saw the light at Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS) 2013, and little more than five years later they have grown into an online platform that has around eight million unique visitors a month in 2018.
You can visit Chordify during ESNS at the Music & Tech Hideout at the Oosterstraat 52, next to VERA. Chordify, together with DATmag. and Peripheral, have organized Electrosonic on January 17. During this event four live acts are going to play, amongst which Zuco 103 (NL) and Go March (BE). This is part of the Eurosonic-Extra program and starts at 17:00.
