Eavesdropper DJ-set at Walvis

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Just back from J-land, and already another party night with a local DJ-gig in Brussels, this Saturday October 3.  It’s ‘Nuit Blanche’ that night, so expect a lenghty set that should keep you going for as long as needed.  I’ll try my best to keep the good Japan vibe alive, paying tribute to all those artists who turned it into an unforgettable trip on many levels (a report will follow soon).

So, put on the right pants and shoes, stash your pockets with some hard-earned cash and come over to Walvis – Rue Dansaertstraat – Brussels

The mayhem starts around 10 pm.

For those who don’t feel like spending the night in Brussels, i strongly recommend to go to Kozzmozz in Gent for sets by Peter Van Hoesen and Function – Sandwell District.  Two of my favorite artists anyhow, and they both played truly jaw-dropping sets at The Labyrinth last week.

How’s that for a Saturday?!

Some thoughts before diving in

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Within a few hours i’ll leave on a trip that means a lot to me.  Without wanting to sound too cheesy, it’s really a dream that comes true.  Being fascinated by electronic music i’ve always known i had to make it to Japan.  And here it is.

But making your own music is only one parameter for making it outside the (bedroom) studio.  Another gigantic parameter is the support you get from like-minded people who push you further and further, people who, just for the love of music, make enormous efforts to make sure you end up in the right place to share your work.

That’s why i felt the need to post this little message, to thank the people who are involved in my Labyrinth festival appearance and my gig in Tokyo.  And also a big thank you to the peeps who are involved on a mental level.

So, maximum respect goes out to Peter Van Hoesen, Russ, Chris at Mnml Ssgs and Yuri for all the energy related to Labyrinth and to Sylvain Chaveau, Nao Sugimoto, Yukitomo Hamasaki, Hideho Takemasa and Dela Toru for my concert at Moire.

Drinks on me!

Mix for Modyfier

Friday, September 11th, 2009

I was invited to compile a special mix for the well-respected Modyfier blog.  It took me a few weeks to come up with the right combination of tracks, but in the end, i’m particularly happy with the result.  Mind you, it’s not your regular DJ-set, more like a musical stream of consciousness.

Anyways, please head over to the Modyfier blog, and drop a line if you feel like it.
