Brussels based global electronic producer Rafael Aragon made an amazing remix of ‘Mamari’, the single & title song of German jazz groove band Muito Kaballa Power Ensemble.
This remix takes the listener on a dreamy journey. Starting with birds in nature, passing by dubby pianos and beautiful synth melodies, the heavy groove inevitably hushes you into trance. The remix album will be released at the end of June.

This weekend starts the programme of the new Saintklet outdoor terrace!
Saintklet wants to play a pivotal role in the development of the canal area, together with local institutions. The core idea for creating this space was that we wanted to keep it public, meaning free for everyone to use. This crisis has taught us that safe public spaces are in decline. Local initiatives and citizen collectives have to work together to make sure they stay accessible, even during a pandemic.
On sunday from 17:00 – 22:00 we will do a takeover with Rebel Up & Friends with a sweet local lineup!
