Dance Museum ‘Our House’ in Amsterdam
At the spot in the center of Amsterdam near Rembrandtplein where the iT disco used to be, a museum is located that focuses on hip electronic music: the Dance Music.
The museum provides the following explanation about its raison d'être and plans for exhibitions.
Welcome to Our House, a modern museum of electronic music culture. Come and explore the evolution of dance music, told through six chapters and countless interactive installations. Our movement did not start with a bang, but a beat.
Are you ready to experience those very first beats, very first warehouse nights, and feelings of total freedom?
As you enter the first mesmerizing installation, you are greeted by the first preacher of house Mr Chuck Roberts, who will impressively remind you of the core values of (y)our culture.
A movement born from rebellion and the need for release.
Explore and learn about the roots of house music and its’ full journey through the eyes of the creators: the DJ-producers, the promoters, the creatives, and photographers. Narrated by renowned DJ-producers Kevin Saunderson, Carl Cox, Armin van Buuren, Diplo and Charlotte de Witte, you’re sure to walk away with a deeper appreciation of the scene YOU are a part of.
Four-on-the-floor. The 808. The kick. The drop. The bass.
