As former stepping stone for many Rotterdam based electronic music producers and performers, Bootleg DJ Café was an important part of the Rotterdam electronic music scene. A place where talent had the chance to develop and electronic music lovers had the chance to broaden their tastes. DBLY developed a successful concept at this venue consisting of a series of events with ‘local’ and ‘electronic’ as focal points: Locale. Merging some the biggest minimal techno / micro house talents of the time with leading Rotterdam artists. While organising all elements in the venue uniquely as compared to other events and succeeding in significantly improving the atmosphere at the venue by doing so.
