Next up this thursday is the Kick Off The Campus / Stoemp night at the KultuurKaffee at VUB university campus. It’s a party night to kick off the academic year and a fine night for students to get wild and on global sounds. and oh, it’s FREE IN, also for non-students!

head act of the evening is Merdan Taplak & his Balkan Beat Brassband, who will swingaling between euphoric balkan beats, New York hiphop and electrofunk. Merdan is a born and raised Antwerpian with Turkish roots and is known for his dj sessions and producer skills. With his new band he takes his sound a big step further and to global urban spheres.

The band Sabena will be the perfect warmup > multicolor electropop with African grooves. Just like Merdan, this Afro-Belgian band from Leuven mixes electronics with an energetic and crazy live-act. Recently they remixed Taplaks single “All Out” (ft. Kraantje Pappie) and also worked together with Belgian global funk outfit Buscemi.
