"Since always, Bendrik was interested in music. At the age of 15, he discovers electronic music which he totally fall in love with and starts producing his own tracks. It’s quite naturally that he start mixing in order to share his musical sensitivities. Bendrik makes his marks in parties between friends. Little by little he improves his skills in producing and djing and earns the right to perform his first ‘official’ gig which take place at the Nocturne de l’Ulb in front of 5000 persons. Thanks to that, the Play Label’s crew noticed him… That was the beginning of a long story…
Meanwhile, he release three EP on the Belgian label 17:44 records and then acquired a certain visibility which allowed him to play in famous Belgian clubs such as Knal, Fuse, Wood, Wax Club and even in Luxembourg. He also plays at events like Apéros Urbain, Anarchic, Bruxelles les Bains, Woodstrasse with well-known artists (The Magician, Basti Grub, Format B, Kolombo…).
Nowadays Bendrik is resident at The Wood for his Play Label’s mates and he’s sexy-groovy-eclectic taste, both in his production and his sets, will delight you for sure!!"
The umlaut characters are created on a computer by using ASCII key sequences.
Holding the "Alt" key down whilst typing in the code for the required character.
Unless you still believe in fairy tales, we could tell you to hold "Alt" and David and Johan would appear to tell them their biography themselves...
But we won't do that.
April 2011. After living for almost a year in a country without a government, rules or any ethics, Umlaut sprouted as the brainchild of electronic music madmen David Gorez and Johan De Vylder.
While both of them already played alone for many years, they felt it was time for someting new, something fresh!
Umlaut was born.
As they were still spinning vinyl while spending half of their paycheck at the online recordstore, they definitely had a passion in common.
Feeling the vinyl in your hands, picking them out of your recordbag, putting them on the turntable, it's simply something different then scrolling through the titles on the keypad of your laptop...
Don't get us wrong, evolution is nice...unless it affects the quality of the sound.
Seeing, feeling and experiencing the evolution of electronic music in Belgium from the mid 90's till now, is like being part of today's scene since the beginning. As both players where part of this movement from the start, raving all over Belgium for more then a decade, they simply couldn't get enough of this.
And still can't!
David and Johan both started playing records around 1998 and stood behind the decks at many clubs and venues in Belgium and beyond the borders. David as dj Nocif, Johan as Juannes. They first met in 2006, as Johan organised his Plus/Minus events where he invited David to play. Since then they never lost contact and shared their mutual interest, music and parties, with Brussels as a central meeting point. Juannes became resident of the infamous P3P parties in Brussels and played as a regular guest at Fuse club Brussels, Kozzmozz, Ultra in Gent and Tomorrowland. Nocif played as a resident for Bombomatic, Technoir and Artfact, while playing twice at Laundry Day and having a spot at the 10 years Kozzmozz party. Next to that he went abroad in Germany and twice in Switzerland. David is also promotor of the all known Fuse club in Brussels, where he's hosting world's best parties!
Inspired by all different styles of electronic music, you can expect a musical voyage from soft house music to harder techno music, going back and then forward again.
Always keeping in mind we don't want to bring music for the masses, but cast pearls before the dancefloor swines.
Or only aim is to make you smile and keep you dancing all night, or at least during our set.
Umlaut to that!
Tauba and Louise are forming The Lizzies, a new female dj duo from Brussels who is ready to make you dance!
After spending many nights on the dance floor partying together, Tauba and Louise organised the infamous La Boum at the Wood in Brussels together with Deborah and Aurore. The concept was pretty eclectic, with a mix of 80’s, 90’s, hip-hop, electro and house music. In other words… Girls just wanna have fun ;-)
Tauba is a community manager and worked for Fuse and various advertising companies.
Louise is a make up artist and communications assitant and used to be a vj for Mtv!
After La Boum Tauba and Louise decided to create a new concept, Les Enfants Perdus, where house music was standing central. This is where The Lizzies emerged from the Woods, as they really got into mixing together and making the people move on the dance floor.
Although they play pretty housy on these nights, their sets are usually pretty eclectic playing rock, pop, electro and more…
Their future plans?
Make music and with some nice vocals, as they both love to sing!
