First real Gqom night in Brussels!

Gqom Oh! is a new label set up by Italian dj and researcher Nan Kole to display the fresh sounds coming out of Durban, by talented and often very young producers from the townships. Griffit Vigo is one of the main figures of the scene, still young but veteran producer is already the inspiration and godfather for many.

Griffit Vigo (SA) (dj set)
Nan Kolè (IT)
+ Dr Kwest AKA 808 Bantou (Bxl) (live set)

At the crossroads of Mediterranean folk music and psychedelic rock, Phoenician Drive was formed in summer 2015 by percussionist Diego Moscoso grouping 6 musicians from very different backgrounds (flamenco, Balkan, psychedelic rock’n’roll, jazz, post -punk / new wave) for blending traditional designs with fuzz guitars and oriental rhythms. In the footsteps of Erkin Koray and Orient Express and under the influence of ‘kraut-rock German (Neu !, CAN, Faust etc.) and soundtracks 60’s music, Phoenician Drive Search hypnotic trance by relying on oriental grooves. Two demos were recorded in December 2015 and quickly attracted interest in Brussels (Ateliers Claus WIELS, Recyclart, Atelier 210) and elsewhere (Rockerill, Area B in Paris). An EP is being mixed into the hands of Débruit (label ICI).

The concert will start at 20h sharp by a prologue without electricity, enlightened by 400 artisanal candles.
