a bit about Lino

What do you do and why do you do it?

I usually DJ twice a week, organise club nights in Amsterdam, and work 4 days a week promoting hiphop concerts in the best venue of the Netherlands, Paradiso. As you might suspect, I’m into music, and enjoy the whole business around it.

What TV show is a must watch?

Designated Surviver

What’s the best karaoke song of all times?

Jackson 5 – I Wan’t You Back

The Big Short

Have you ever cried while reading a book? Which one?

No, don’t read as much as I should.

Are you a planned or a spontaneous shopper? What’s your go-to store in Amsterdam?

Spontaneous. Probably Big in Japan store.

What’s your dream job?

If I knew, I would be doing it, or trying to get there.

Where do you go in Amsterdam if you have two hours to kill?

Homemade Food & Drinks on Singel and get the chicken melt sandwich.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in Amsterdam but never actually do?

Swimming, because of the cold unfortunately. We get -if we’re lucky- 10-15 days tops when the weather allows it to swim outside. So take in consideration that most people are working 80% of those days.
