5elect5 Essentials Cinnaman DJ Music Producer

One of the most respected DJ and music producer in the Dutch underground electronic music scene Yuri Boselie aka Cinnaman shares his smart collection of travel essentials.

Now based in Amsterdam, Boselie’s music career continuously influenced the city’s nightlife and music scene. Being a resident DJ at Trouw and working as the A&R for infamous labels like Rush Hour and Kindred Spirits offshoot Nod Navigators, he gained a reputation for his wide range and impeccable taste in music. He became also famously one of the co-founders and resident DJs at Colors, a long-running club night that brought bass music to Amsterdam.

From hip-hop, house and modern soul, to techno and garage, Boselie knows what works on the dance floor as well as what his audience needs to hear next. Even with a hectic touring schedule (he just came back from an Asia tour and is getting ready for a tour in India next), he always stays loyal to his roots and returns home for his residency at De School and his radio show “Visible Spectrum” on Red Light Radio.

Boselie’s essentials create the perfect set for compact and effortless touring. Recording and collecting local sounds from hims adventures, to the occasional shopping on the way to his show – while keeping a piece of home always close to his heart.
