3rd Floor Magic


3rd Floor Magic



In August 2011, while working together in the studio on the 3rd floor, Tim “Tuxedo” Blok and Hilin Düyü, started the (Dutch) band 3rd Floor Magic and decided to participate in a band contest, called the Amsterdamse Popprijs. One month before this contest started, they received a reminder by e-mail and shortly after a 6-member formation was created, which occasionally expands to a collective of 8, 10 or even 12 enthusiastic musicians.

In the 1st year of their existance they’d already reached a huge number of milestones. After 3 months they made it to the finals of the Amsterdamse Popprijs, which took place in the legendary Music Hall “The Melkweg”.
From that moment on they rocked the national and very popular radio station Radio 538 with their track “Mister Money”, got noticed by the VPRO talent platform 3voor12, got to play again in an overcrowded Melkweg as support act of the Gym Class Heroes and performed at many other venues and festivals, mainly in and around Amsterdam.

On April 19th 2012, 3rd Floor Magic presented both their debut album and the videoclip of the single “Bang Bang” in a packed venue called P60 in Amstelveen.

3rd Floor Magic participated in the NH-Pop Live Showcase, which promotes talented and promising Dutch bands. After a series of performances they were chosen by a jury as one of the five winners, each rewarded with a support package of 5000 euros! This package included the recording of a new single “We Are One” in the famous e-Sound Studios as well as an accompanying videoclip. The 5 winners will play these songs and show their videoclips on December 2nd in Paradiso.

On May 31st, 3rd Floor Magic played at another wellknown national radio station Radio 3FM. During and after the show, their ego’s got very well ‘fed’ with lots of positive feedback and reactions from the listeners.
In the interview DJ Sander Hoogendoorn asked Hilin, for which singer, group or idol she dreams to be the support act. Her dream, John Lee Hooker Jr., became reality when 3rd Floor Magic was asked to be his support act at the Bamberg Blues & Jazz Festival (Germany) in August!!

Currently they’re on tour through Holland with the Popronde 2012 and will play in 16 different cities.
The Popronde is offering (still) unknown bands the opportunity to present themselves outside their own region to get intensive tour- and stage experience. Each year 100 bands are selected out of 1000+ entries.

Besdies Tuxedo and Hilin Düyü (main vocals), the band consists of Rafi Ishak (drummer), Max de Lange (bassplayer), Alon Dreesde (guitarplayer) and Remi Besançon (keyplayer).

HEADLINE  for which the band will also be working their butts off the next couple of months:
