On January 24, HOLGER trades Brussels for a sleazy Turkish discotheque in 2060 Borgerhout, as a new pinky promise was made to Antwerp’s NOORD FEESJES, following last year’s sweat drenched party with Pional at Pekfabrik.
This time around, we invited Australian wunderkind ANDRAS FOX aka A.R.T. Wilson aka our current favourite dj and producer and we couldn’t be more chuffed to have him over. Expect everything from moogy library music to sparse 90’s house.
Also playing is KONG, resident dj on Studio Brussel and head honcho of 22tracks Belgium. CAPTAIN STARLIGHT and myself will be representing Holger yo.
Friends from Brussels and beyond, on friday Holger celebrates its third anniversary with an italo disco special on the Brauhaus boat. The party has been over a year in the making and promises to be off the hook. I can’t tell you who’s playing but believe me, the line up is stellar. We can only say that both acts are regulars at clubs like Robert-Johnson, Dekmantel or Panoramabar and that they have agreed to play italo disco back to back for one night only. On top of that, it looks like the weather will be nice so we can open the roof and dance under the stars.
I’m dj'ing at the opening of the Antwerp Queer Arts Festival at the Verbeeck-Van Dyck Gallery tomorrow. The exhibition was curated by my talented friend Thomas Grödal and features works by Kasper Bosmans, Matthias Herrman, Rachid Laachir and more. Definitely worth a visit. Runs until August 10th.
New mix recorded at Slave To The Rhythm in Leuven on Thursday and broadcasted on FM Brussel last Friday. It’s a bit on the dreamy house tip and includes tracks by Bell Towers, Michael Ozone, Pal Joey and more. Hope you like it!
Loving the animated gif report of yesterday’s huge 22tracks party at the Brussels Beursschouwburg, where I ended up playing back to back with Gratts till the break of dawn. Happy to be part of this family, wish I could’ve heard more of the other dj’s sets.
Here’s two live radio sets that I did the other week. The one for Texture on Urgent.fm has a more random relaxed vibe - new age, italo, library music, african jams, anything goes. The mix I did on Studio Brussel’s Playground show is a bit more clubby as it went out on Saturday night. Having never played on live (national) radio before I can still hear the blood rushing through my veins.
