23:00:00 - 01:00:00(Brussels (BE)) - dj
Schooled in Luxembourg, now based in Brussels. Born in 92, he missed most of the good house music the first time around, but he’s soaking it up fast now. His sets are a collage of hidden house gems, ambient and those few tracks that you loved as a kid/teen but won’t admit now.
Some stats you can google when bored:
01:00:00 - 06:00:00(Rotterdam (NL)) - dj
Betonkust is one of the most exciting newbies in the latest wave of dystopian dance producers hailing from the west-coast.
On closer approach he’s situated in a righteously forgotten area of the lower lands and his sound is founded on a wide variety of hyper energetic music such as new beat, rave and Detroit vibed electro & by artists such as Unit Moebius, Electronome and I-F. The early 90’s are the mainbase all over!
While melancholia and dreamy drills always remain a keystone throughout his performances, there are catchy outbursts which provide a welcome element of surprise.
Inspired by post-modern society and its striking disfigurements, these are the days when someone such as Betonkust thrives.
Where recent attention went towards his collab EP ‘Hotel Breukelen’ with the Los Angeles based Palmbomen on the ever-excellent Pinkman, they previously issued a trouble up on the indie imprint 1080P. At least as exciting are several solo remixes & projects lined up for the near future!
01:00:00 - 06:00:00(Aalst (BE)) - dj
Industrial cities, especially those in decay, tend to play host to a melting pot of electronic musicians. As so in the city of Aalst (Belgium), a former textile giant, where Thomas Blanckaert kickstarted a music escapade as Innershades a few years ago. In little time his tracks were picked up by prominent record labels such as Crème Organization, Pinkman and Hot Haus Records, many of which are now of cult notoriety.
Strongly influenced by the pioneers of Chicago & Detroit, Thomas created a sound of his own with dynamic productions ranging from raw house and techno workouts to melodic electro gems. A similar eclecticism can be found in his DJ sets which brim with enigmatic selections that will prick the ears of any avid identifier. Needless to say, with productions celebrated by tastemakers worldwide, Innershades is one of Belgium's most exciting new exports.
