To celebrate Resident Advisor's 10th anniversary, we've cooked up something rather epic: a series of ten parties in ten cities around the world, each with a secret headliner.
We take it the ten parties in ten cities thing is pretty easy to understand, so here's the deal with the secret headliners: each event will feature one carefully selected artist who we think has positively influenced the electronic music landscape over the past decade. Their identities will remain strictly under wraps until they take the stage. Up to that point, each one will be known simply as the X (see what we did there?).
For the tenth and final stop on our birthday adventure around the globe, we'll be setting up shop Trouw, home to our ADE parties in previous years. RA and the X have been busy curating a line-up fitting of the occasion and we're pleased to announce a night packed with both deep grooves and no-nonsense party jams: Infine boss <a href=dj-page.aspx?id=474>Agoria</a> and Italian techno artist <a href=/dj-page.aspx?id=864>Donato Dozzy</a> will bring the former, ex-Wighnomy brother <a href=/dj-page.aspx?id=10978>Robag Wruhme</a> and Leftroom head <a href=/dj-page.aspx?id=709>Matt Tolfrey</a> the latter. Joining the dots in the middle are Trouw residents <a href=/dj-page.aspx?id=2350>Patrice Baumel</a> and <a href=/dj-page.aspx?id=3512>Nuno dos Santos</a> (AKA 360). The party engulfs both floors of the cavernous club on the Saturday night of <a href=/ade.aspx>ADE</a> weekend, and as always, includes a secret headliner whose identity will be revealed the moment he or she steps into the booth.
The screen-printed A1 poster for this one comes courtesy of French artist <a href=http://www.laurentfetis.com/>Laurent Fetis</a>, the man behind iconic sleeves for DJ Hell, Beck, m83 and Discodeine. They are available in a limited run of 75 through exclusively on RA.
