Arp Frique

Concert at het Dok

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Tropical paradise in the Noorderplantsoen
“Pulsating New York style live disco interlaced with Caribbean and Cape Verdean sounds.” That’s how Niels Nieuborg, the mastermind behind Arp Frique, likes to describe his music. The funkmeister is taking things to the next level by teaming up with afrobeat star Orlando Julius and Suri-funk hero Ronald Snijders. Arp Frique refers to Nieuborg’s love for the legendary analog ARP synths and immortal dance track “Le Freak” by Chic. Don’t let Arp Frique’s vintage sound fool you: everything is either played or recorded live. So get down and boogie with Arp Frique! There's a slice of tropical paradise to be had in the Noorderplantsoen.

“Unbelievable that something like this emerged from our cool clammy climate. Congrats to all of you!”

- Paul Maas, Platomania
