De Schuurman is one of the key names spotlighting the Dutch bubbling house movement, a hi-energy dancehall permutation. As the legend goes, in the late 80s a young DJ Moortje from Curaçao was playing at Den Haag’s Club Voltage, where he accidentally played a dancehall track at 45RPM, not 33, to feverish reception from the dancers. De Schuurman’s latest compilation Bubbling Inside on Uganda’s Nyege Nyege Tapes is a collection of hard-to-find pieces highlighting the propulsive rhythms of this genre, produced from the early 00s all the way to 2019. Brilliantly produced, energising music made for the dancefloor. For fans of anything released on Nyege Nyege or Príncipe.
