SFFRMKRS || Mr. Roy Berkenhamer

Ok.....this interview was waiting for weeks in my mailbox....and even now when I'm trying to put it online...pffffff is a lot of work, my laptop just simply refuses to cooperate. But anyway I'm not here to tell you about my not so coooperative laptop, but about SFFRMKRS!!!!

As you all may now....I the Ki from Ki-Mi. like to wright about stuff that happens here in my city, country etc...Because Amsterdam simply Rocks!!!! Plus I like to give some big ups to peeps that I know that accomplished nice things....So all of that brings us to this small interview with Mr. Roy Berkenhamer, creator of SFFRMKRS!

Mr. Roy Berkenhamer

THNWSHT:I'm not gonna ask how you slept last night, because for a fact I know you were at the Jimmy Woo…did you enjoyed yourself? What were you wearing?
SFFRMKRS: Ey, Thursday Jimmy Woo is always enjoying, chill vibes with Manga & others.....what I was wearing?.....cant remember must be a t-shirt, jeans ( definitely ACNE haha) Sneakers & maybe the new Era ;)

Is Grandmaster Woo also an event from SFFRMKRS?
Grandmaster Woo is an event from DJ Manga and SFFRMKRS is involved. We believe in the party and Manga is one of the SFFRMKRS family so it's joining and combining forces to create something hot.

Tell me what is SFFRMKRS all about?
SFFRMKRS (stands for mood makers) is Deejay Cream and myself. We want to change the game and just bring parties that we like, quality music, creative people, nice atmosphere. SFFRMKRS is much more than throwing parties, DJ bookings, collaborations with other organisations & peeps ( Leyp, SjocoSjon, Turk, and much more ). We got our own clothingline we started like 6 years ago, every party a different T. Now we are selling them on Freshcotton.com & Spoor19.nl. People are asking, that's the reason we are selling them now and the shirts are selling big time!!

Ok so big up to that then! Why did you started this company? And what were your intentions?
We started in Alphen a/d Rijn (20min from Amsterdam) 6 years ago, because we grew up there and there was nothing to do for the youth! It was to enjoy ourselves, gave some love to the peeps.

Did you always wanted to do this…..do you have another job or this is it?
It was ment to be I think, now I know for sure we will continue this....from a hobby to a serious thing. Besides SFFRMKRS I still work fulltime, so there is not a lot of sparetime..but it stills give me energy.

How many parties do have now and which one makes you proud?
Pffff...in Alphen a/d Rijn we have 4 parties, HEERLIJK/DANS/POHPIH/WOOFFER. In Amsterdam we do SFFEERVOL in the Bitterzoet (every 2nd and 4th sunday of the month), every thursday Grandmaster Woo at Jimmy Woo, from 15th of October we will do "Ride tha Pumani" at Suzy Wong a new party every wednesday wich give young and upcoming DJ's/Designers an opportunity to show themselves. KWIJT every month at Odeon.
Wich one makes me most proud? Cant choose....for now probably SFFEERVOL because we are working ver hard to make it a success.

Yes even I was shot by SFFRMKRS

I know you're parties from Amsterdam, but you're not only here right? And tell me why those others city's?
What I told you already, don’t forget your hometown right? And other city's are coming, there is more than Amsterdam...

What is the worst thing you ever experienced with your parties, as in no DJ for the night, or no sound…..anything?
Hahaaha Pff dont know, it's all about preperation...so no huge fiascos at our parties...

Well good for you hahaha! How does your perfect party look like, location, crowd, DJ's, decoration etc…tell me
I will not tell you what the prefect party looks like, because we are working on it :P....the best party is where everybody is smiling, enjoying themselves...its all about giving the peeps a good time.

What do you want to achieve with SFFRMKRS…..go around the world with it?

Take over the world......SFFRMKRS; Boss of the world......future is in the making!

SFFRMKRS.nl is different then other ones, how come?
What you mean with different? We put stuff online that we like, that we dig, we give love to people who love us. We support youngsters.....Most sites copy shit from each other, we like to put information online right from the source...
Its not Hip Hop only there is more in the world.
