A lineup of exciting Brussels DJ’s and also a special guest >>>>

Terence Rion
opening solo set with guitar, voice and lush tones.

Gajoy
she mixes afrobeat, house, hip hop, kuduro and dancehall reggae. She spent time at radio Tarmac doing shows and joined the collectives of Authentik vybz and Carbone 14.

Nika (Radio Vacarme)
she grabs the public’s attention through her impactful music selection, alternating between colourful and somber vibes so as to make the dancefloor jump and sweat.

Mambele (Bolingo)
The soul of Brussels and Bruzz/ Kiosk Radio resident. His DJ sets are pure romances on the dancefloor and can make anyone’s head melt. Nowadays he plays on everywhere in his beloved capital and keeps everyone’s hearts warm on colder days in the Brussels underground. His nightly sets range from African styles such batida, bass, afrohouse, afrotech, rave, Congolese rumba and more.

SPECIAL GUEST: Asna
DJ and producer from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Asna defines herself as a “sound explorer”. Her talents lie not just in DJing and production, but also in visual arts. Her universe is mainly influenced by traditional African rhythms which shape the continent’s current music. She does not hesitate to revisit the jerky rhythms of coupé-décalé, Congolese rumba or even the trance of percussion and traditional songs, all with drum infused bass, raw rhythms and some spicy electro for dancefloor bliss.

SebCat (Rebel Up)
underground contemporary electronic global sounds of past & future styles from everywhere to never there.

Bom Baleno : live liquid light projections!
