Coming up in May
The first 2 weeks of May bring along 2 fun gigs that I am really looking forward to:
07.05: I will be playing KHC party in Namur, proper sweatbox action, happy to be back in Wallonia !

This time I will be doing a special back 2 back with Jonathan Nox - expect some heavier acid techno and classics :) Also on the line-up: Mike Dearborn, Shlomo, Pierre, Agent Orange & Fugazi and more. Don't miss out, all info here: http://www.jokofest.be/
Because I love the sound of acid
Heavily acid influenced set, a nice load of classics in it and lot's of new releases.
Happy New Year !
Best wishes all for 2016, may it bring happiness, real friendships and love and great nights filled with musical richness.
At the start of this year, my only resolution is to be strong for my muze, my love Kimberly, who has been my driving force for more than 2 years and has inspired me musically as well.
Bring it on 2016 !
New 12'' only set in the making
Reaching that yearly recurring point that I'm so fed up with all that is digital in the world of deejaying. I used to use Traktor Scratch at home to be able to play all the digital releases, the good side of digital age, but it keeps bugging and failing after each and every Apple related update etc. etc. That's exactly why I do love playing with USB/SD and CDJ's at gigs in combination with good old vinyl. Long story short, it still bugs me sometimes and causes a feeling of distance between me and the music, especially the warm, raw and honest analog feel. That's why I keep recording these vinyl only sets at home.
To be continued ...

(p)Review: Paling Trax
What a discovery this was, another fine raw release coming up in september from a new Dutch artist. Love those releases that just sneek up on you but have you bouncing on your chair immediately. Keep an eye on this if you are into the rawer more ravey side of techno. You can bet on hearing these tracks in my sets the coming weeks :)

Thanks for the nice words Steve :)
Review: RNTS - Acid Hazel
Quick but extremely positive review on this first release on Mainconcept Music run by Marc Brunes from Barcelona Spain. I've been in contact with Marc for years now, always appreciating his dj sets and innovative sounds. The first release on the label was sent to me 3 weeks ago and I've been playing it ever since. The Hecor Oaks and Velovr remixes really do the trick on the floor while the Original and remix by Marc can make you dre...
