On 10th March at 19:00 GMT / 20:00 CET, rising house music star Chris Stussy will broadcast a 90-minute live stream from STRAAT Museum, Amsterdam’s leading street art and graffiti museum, accompanied by the latest live installation from Nottingham-born, Rotterdam-based artist DILK.
The performance is broadcasted via international club culture magazine, DJ Mag, and aims to highlight the close relationship between music, art and the creative industries.
“I’ve always been a huge fan of music in combination with streetwear, art and urban architecture, so it was great to be able to combine these passions at the amazing STRAAT Museum whilst recording this set for DJ Mag. We also had a graffiti artist, DILK, working his magic on a blank canvas for the museum’s latest installation during the stream and the end result was mind-blowing to say the least.” – Chris Stussy
