Gwelmine 21.00 – 22.00
The Gwelmime project was born in 2001 in a small farm of a small village named Henri-Chapelle. Radhia and Robby were playing and recording their ideas, with the help of friends who were passing by. Step by step, the project grew up. The particularity of it is that the vocals are in different languages. The lyrics, written by Boumrah Radhia are in English, Moroccan Arabic, French or even in German... The music, composed by Norbert Weedloaf, contains influences of pop, rock, electro, hip-hop and even classical music. People refer our music to "Trip-hop", but everyone can find a little something in it.
Sensu 00.00 – 02.00
Brussels-based DJ Sensu has for years been one of the voices of the electronic music underground in Belgium. He originally started out as an experimental ambient DJ, but quickly refocused his ambitions, adding club music to his palette. Originally influenced by the Berlin Techno sound of the Nineties, he quickly reached beyond, always choosing a less direct path to get his message across. Avantgarde and modern classical music are still close to his heart, a love often shown in his eclectic DJ sets. Over the last years, he has also been delving into Disco and Industrial music.
Sensu has held residencies in Recyclart, Café Belga and Wax Club in Brussels and frequently plays in other venues and cultural centers all over Belgium. Also a promotor in his own right, he is one of the founding members of the Manna and Plain collectives, bringing original and leftfield artists to Belgium, often for the first time. Recently he started his website discontent.be as an umbrella for his DJ and promotor work.
Brisquez 20.00 – 22.00
Bernardo Risquez is an architect and musician born in Caracas, Venezuela. He first encountered a musical instrument at the age of 10, a typical venezuelan instrument, el cuatro. Since that day he hasn’t stopped making music. Playing in several bands his interests and viewpoint shifted when starting to study architecture. It contributed to a different comprehension of space and time both in his works as an architect and musician. Bernardo moved to Paris in 2009 and later to Brussels where he founded Different Fountains together with Michael Langeder. He currently studies Transmedia in Brussels and works as a DJ and Producer.
Hallo Kosmo 22.00 – 00.00
Hallo Kosmo is the bass player of Belgian band Girls in Hawaii and also heads the Hallo Kosmo band. His Dj sets are intended for those who love to bounce around or rhythmically stand still. From the endless depths of his record crate, he digs up nothing but rumbling, creaking grooves. Slam the world onto a record player and defeat gravity!
