In the past few years it is the Netherlands that has increasingly set the tone within the Dance industry, creating a worldwide dance platform and organizing special events.

The ADE is a major part of this bringing “professionals” from within the business to Amsterdam and creating a wide platform of music for people in the industry to meet and the public alike.

For this reason EPM has teamed up with one of the finest House labels in the world, Farris Wheel Recordings to host a Detroit v Chicago party with the headliners Gene Farris (label owner of Farris Wheel) & the Detroit Grand Pubahs + special guest - Holland’s Benny Rodrigues (Be As One Records) and MC Fadoua Mae who has dropped lyrics on many a house production over the years.

Gene Farris' global DJ track record and extensive discography of over 80 productions are definitely a testament to the true Chicago house sound. Farris's unique dexterous DJ style that includes extended sultry, melodic blends with tuff beats makes him a party favorite around the world. House music is Farris's undoubted passion that also drives his full flavored, colorful studio creations.
Gene Farris comments "it should be another great year at A.D.E. The Chicago vs Detroit party with EPM should be amazing and a fantastic closing party on the Sunday at the Escape Deluxe and Studio. I can't wait to rock it! See you on the dancefloor!"

The Pubahs are no novelty act. Fresh from relaunching their Detelefunk label with the remix compilation series “Buttfunkula & The Remixes from Earth”, there is method to the madness and bass in the badness. Its just that something went awry in the funk lab and Paris The Black Fu just hasn’t been feeling himselves ever since. It’s all about personality (well split personalities of Paris his cohort The Mysterious Mr.O) and a mission to put the fun(k) back into techno. For many the realm of a faceless façade, Paris sets out to engage the crowd and bring the party. And that’s what it was all about in the first place, wasn’t it?

Benny Rodrigues has infiltrated himself into the list of famous Dutch top DJs in a very short time. This Rotterdam born and raised talent with Portuguese blood understands the art of using the funk, of getting the dancing floor full and the room to its feet. With releases scheduled on Darren Emerson’s (ex-Underworld) Underwater Records and other very interesting upcoming projects he's setting himself quite a good step in the right direction!

Room 2 hosts a more soulful house sound with Brian S. one of the pioneers of Supperclub who gave this legendary club its unique ''lounge'' sound and the host of the ‘RUSH’ (Raw Urban Sexy House) night at Escape/Panama which was voted the best club night for 3 years in a row.

Ruduchi and Alex Pi are two self-confessed Dutch house freaks how also jointly run the 2 Records label. Together they produce tracks like: Da Jungle - Louis Vega & Dj Pierre (Rudichi & Alex Pi Dirty Jungle Mix) (Afro Acid), Stress - Justice & Dj Pierre (Rudichi & Alex Pi 2Recordz Mix) (Afro Acid), everything Rudichi & Alex Pi create stands for quality. Alex also works alongside Gene as the label manager for Faris Wheel. Today a whole new generation appreciates the music of these two talented producers without knowing the full history of it. The future of house music is in safe hands.

The line-up is further complimented by US house talents Julius The Mad Thinker and MC Chappell.
