Pop Rules says "Pop becomes Underground the moment it acknowledges its position as Pop. Underground becomes Pop the moment it acknowledges its position as Underground". This Antwerp pop lover loves not only pop. He praises music as his inspiration, motivation and strength. “To live without my music would be impossible to do in this world of troubles my music pulls me through”
He breathes fashion without attitude, he inhales parties, he plays with words, words with meaning. "Don't drop bombs, play pop". He truly is "Sage comme une image"

Since their inception, the band has played Coachella, toured internationally whether it be at museums or dance-clubs, and has supported bands such as, Gossip, Peaches, and CSS.
JD also played keyboard for Peaches on her “Impeach My Bush” world tour, and acted in John Cameron Mitchell’s amazing film, ‘Shortbus’.
Throughout the years, JD has been photographed for many magazines and other fine art projects, as an androgynous sex symbol and “icon of nerdy-cool” (New York Times). Most recently, JD was photographed for a seven page spread by Maciek Kobielski for Vogue Hommes International.
JD Samson has been DJing internationally since 2001 and has found way through many different party scenes and music genres. Whether she is playing at a museum, at a college, at a wedding, a huge nightclub, the beach, or at a dive bar, JD likes to focus on “creating spaces for rad people to dance and smile and hold each other.” JD is a people pleaser DJ and swings as many ways as needed to make you have an amazing night. And you will!

White Lies are the glowering, glistening, moody, magnificent, cheekbones-of-granite, stone cold future of Rock…
As teenagers in what now seems a different life, they were a band called Fear Of Flying. They’d known each other since they were babies in West London. Starting with a jagged and jittery desire to make any music they could and influenced by each member’s vastly different musical taste, they gradually honed their style into a more atmospheric, grandiose beast. White Lies were go.
Their music blooms with darkness, maturity and density. Their image blackened to suit their new mood and their gigs began to rage with such devout intensity that some fans were literally driven to tears.
Writer of the band’s striking lyrics, Charles is a fresh, invigorating and slightly deviant new storyteller entering an indie landscape. He is the creator of these dark, cinematic tales of murder, madness, revenge, loss and love from beyond the grave.
"Unfinished Business is a spectral tale of an argument between two lovers which goes wrong", Charles explains. “And we have a song called E.S.T which deals with the issues and morals of electric shock therapy.”
2009 was a massive year touring with Coldplay and Kings of Leon. 2010 was stuffed with tour dates, including some exclusive dj dates such as for Los Ninos.
They just announced that they're working on a 3rd album so it's the ideal time to call them on stage for a surprise dj set !
