Amber Muse’s DAS BOOT summer boat parties will start this Friday

Time to kick the summer season off by the long awaited first Das Boot party this year. As per usual it’s 4 hour trip on board of cosy “Vecrīga” boat with local residents and special guest from Estonia – Firejosé.

Firejosé (born Mark Stukis) is an artist born in Estonia and tempered by the jungles of Central America. His roots go deeper and influences wider than the rain forests of Tortuguero, though. Similarities to Detroit Swindle and Joy Orbison have been drawn, but most recently Firejosé quenched the thirst for Baltic beats with live shows alongside Gold Panda and Bonobo. Performing live, double-dropping dubplates or mixing with 12”, he’s also shared the stage with the likes of Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Blawan, MJ Cole and Artwork. The whole, however, is much more than the sum of the parts and the man much more than the sum of his past. A well-kept secret from the hypemachines, it is the unquenchable desire for deep beats that keep Firejosé ablaze.

Other performances will include Taran & Lomov (Amber Muse / LV), ZaZzy (Amber Muse / LV), TRASHY KID (LV).

Time and place – 3.06.16, starts at 10pm on the Vecrīga boat, 11.Novembra krastmala, to the right of the Akmens bridge.

Limited capacity: only 150 people on board! So hurry up and get your ticket here.
