Lowdjo's Bio

At the early age of sixteen Lowdjo said goodbye to his former punk-rock band to start deejaying at his local radio station in aLOSTa. Mostly listening to indie-rock, post-punk & grunge while collecting a lot of cassettes & cds..

It was only about 7 years later that Lowdjo first deejayed for an audience, vinyl replaced the old cassettes and up until today he's been collecting records and expanding his archive.

After finishing his studies, Lowdjo moved to Brussels, where it all started. Got a dj-gig in the basement of a sweaty jazz-club.. everbody went out of their mind and Lowdjo made his entrance in the Brussels-dj-scene, the year was 2000.

Around that time Lowdjo was exploring the more experimental side of the music spectrum. Using soundscapes, drones & noise in his mix combined with breakcore, elektro, jungle, etc... Then he joined Foton Records who organised the legendary FOtones-nights in Brussels, Belgium and abroad. Next to Foton Lowdjo was also participating in two other collectives around that period, called aLOSTaSOULS and Comphusion.

Deejaying not only in his home town, Brussels but also in a lot of other venues in Belgium and abroad: Chicago, Berlin, Maribor, Rome, Barcelona, Cologne, Amsterdam, London, Orléans, Deringaj (Croatia), Novi Sad...

During this period Lowdjo had the chance to dj and be on the same line-up with a lot of amazing artists. To name a few:

Einstürzende Neubauten, Pole, Peaches, Emir Kusturica & His No Smoking Orchestra, Patric Catani, Koçani Orkestar, Venetian Snares, Dj Rupture, Douster, The Herbaliser, Carlos Giffoni, Jack Dangers (MeatBeatManifesto), Apparat, 65Days Of Static, Karen Constance, Filastine, Alpha Blondy, Chris Corsano & Paul Flaherty & Spencer Yeh, Felix Kubin, Herrmutt Lobby, Seal Phüric, Astrobotnia, Imminent, Subskan, Eat Static,
Dj Ripley, Sébastien Roux, Géographique, Silk Saw, F.S. Blumm Trio, Zu ft. Mats Gustaffson, Milanese, Toecutter, Guido Möbius, Ove Naxx, Hrsta, Vex'd, Drop The Lime, Neil Landstrumm, Flex Busterman, Shitmat, Loefah, Bear Bones Lay Low, and many more...

Now, in 2010.. "Lowdjo takes you on a journey with his ethnic beats extra-ordinaire: Thaï pop, Tropicalia, Syrian Tekno, Cumbia, Iraki Choubi, Balkan bass, all this laced together by a tantalizing mix of contemporary electronix. Lowdjo takes you on a dizzying trip exploring the globe's weird musical heritage."

Lowdjo's also deejaying under different alter ego's, Dj Fiësto for his specialised 'Disco Kids'-sets, Dr. Green Cheese who explores the contemporary 'futuristic hip-hop' scene and last but not least there's Dj SickSickSick, who mainly focuses on dark drones, ambient, noise, psych, ...

"Een dj die zeker het vermelden waard is en zich al even eclectisch als encyclopedisch door menige Brusselse scènes beweegt is dj Lowdjo." Gonzo Circus, 2010

"Elektro DJ -oktopod koji dolazi iz Brisela, Belgija odvešće vas na putovanje sa svojim neobičnim etno bitovima. Za festival Dani Brazila pomešaće brazilske tematske setove začinjene sa tantalovskim miksom savremene elektronike. Lowdjo će vas povesti na vrtoglavi put istržujući najčudnije svetsko muzičko nasleđe." Dani Brazila, 2011.
