Margie  (EU)


Music runs deep in the veins of Margie, also known as Mijke Hurkx. For as long as she could count bars, Margie has been collecting and writing about music.

The music lover extraordinaire collects boogie, house to whatever floats her boat. In Margie’s world without genre borders, there’s simply good or bad music. No doubt she feels right at home at Amsterdam’s versatile Rush Hour, where she runs the House of Music fanzine and recently played DJ to RH’s label nights.

Storytelling is Margie’s forte, which she does in fine style through both pen and the decks. Spinning tall musical tales on high key at her shows on Red Light Radio, her wisdom and musical flair speak volumes  – unapologetic, raw, surprising.

In recent years, Margie’s music ride-along has taken her across Europe, from playing at Concrete and Macki Music in Paris, Corsica Studios in London, Strange Sounds From Beyond and Dekmantel Festival in Amsterdam, to gigs from Helsinki to Manchester. It’s a new thumbtack to Margie’s music storyboard and a continuation of what she’s been doing all her life – discovering and sharing the music she loves most.

You could call Margie one of Amsterdam’s hidden treasures; something tells us that it isn't going to last long.
