Introducing the YouCube: a spot new for new talent

Jan 13 | Posted by nienkemaat under News | No Comments

This year Un-Convention invented the YouCube; a cube where new and upcoming bands are
presented by an ‘offline profile’. On each side of the cube one band will show their biography,
press photo and two or three songs which you can listen to on the attached MP3-player.

Two sides of the cube will represent the new scouted talents by Freesonica. You can listen to two of their fresh-recorded songs and check the bands live at the Eurosonic Showcase on Friday 14th. (@ Images )

Freesonica (collaborating with PopFabryk Friesland) is a band coaching project that scouts two or three bands a year to support them with management trainings, booking shows and presenting themselves to the music-industry.

If you want to be one of the first to experience the future of music, feel free to put on some
headphones at the YouCube!

Sadly Wouter Stoter and Victor Ponten had to cancel for our Video Killed The Radio Star panel.

We found great replacement though: Job de Wit and Andre Maat.

André Maat ( was born in Germany and graduated at the Art School in Berlin before moving to Amsterdam.
He is working as director for music videos and TV commercials since 2001 and has made promos for bands such as De Staat and Coparck and Erick-E. His most famous work
probably is the flipbook video for ‘Squeeze me’ by Kraak&Smaak. His work has a conceptual background and a playful human touch. When combining different techniques and animations he often works with co-director Superelectric.

Job de Wit is a music journalist, DJ and blogger. He has written for national publications such as Nieuwe Revu, Dagblad de Pers, VPRO Gids, OOR and Blend. He compiles weekly playlists for and blogs about music videos on With residencies in Melkweg and Club Up, Amsterdam party people have been known to get down to his cutting-edge disco selection.
