Lowdjo Live @ Le Café Central -- Teaser!

I'll be posting the recordings of my set in Le Café Central later this month but couldn't wait to share something with all of you bloggers.. it's the fourth part of the series, about one hour and a half far in the set (in total 5 hours!).. and I just got a testpressing of Brussels' bass Warrior, Bunzero, mmmmmmm.. fresh wax.. big up to Jemenfish!!!

i did a little writeup about this part... clocked in just under one hour..

kicking off with brussels bass warrior Bunzero with his fresh release 'Second Meeting' and it's a killer!!! This one took me floating around the room from the first time i heard it.. big up to Jemenfish for releasing Belgium-vinyl in these hard economic times.. you all know who i'm talking about!! the second track is mochipet doing a bass tribute to michael jackson: 'thriller rmx', back to Jemenfish's vinyl with Tyronn 'Rumble' in the Forsaken rmx on the b-side, damn!!! I just can't get enough of this dark atmosphere... you should all get out and buy this record, me like a lot!

Next up one of my favourite tracks on the new major lazer album: "anything goes" ft. turbulance, over to ghislain poirier ft. mc zulu i think in the 'wildlife re-rub', a guy from brussels, no? .. this is where the basssss goes up!!! .. with ghislain poirier's remix of another great bassnectar track called "art of revolution, then 77klash ft. matt shadetek with 'pressure' .. brooklyn basssss!!!, zombie disco squad in the boog-a-loo crew rmx, over to some kuduro with n° 1 in the genre... buraka som sistema - kalemba (reso's arguardente rmx), next one same track but reworked vs lady sovereign - love me or hate me, then a track off toddla t last album - sound tape killin' ft. serocee, frederic galliano, more kuduro bass heavy soundzzz, some phat bubbly basslines, back to breaks with skream's midnite request line refixed with a booty record called 'midnite kryptonite.. love this track and played it out many times (it's made in the states).. that bassline keeps doing it, even after a couple of years and over fifty listens. Then it's one of these crazy flexidiscs on 'how to learn russian' to switch over to another michael jackson / jackson 5 tribute 'i want you riddim' by motorpitch, just for some girls who where asking for more 'funky music' or something.. you know how it goes djing in a café..

Allnighter @ Le Café Central - "Waterdicht"

This saturday, the 18th I'll be dropping some planetary bass and a bag full of fresh tropical sounds for something like 5 hours straight!!?!?!! at Le Café Central, as part of the "Waterdicht" events organised by Umbrelladelika.

My good friend 'Bonjour Didier Mairy' wrote an amazing promo-text about me, here it is:

"DJ Lowdjo recently brought fresh vibes to the Couleur Café festival with his ethnic beats extra-ordinaire: Thaï pop, tropicalia, Syrian tekno, Iraki choubi, Brooklyn bass, Czech hip-hop, Balkan breaks,... all this laced together by a tantalizing mix of contemporary electronix. Lowdjo takes you on a a dizzying trip exploring the globe's weird musical heritage."

So make sure you don't miss out on all those worldly soundz..

Tonight 'Waterdicht' by Umbrelladelika

Tonight the Umbrelladelika-label (the freshest electronix-label Brussels has to offer for the moment!!) are launching their "Waterdicht"- UBD - summervibes - events at Le Café Central, centre of Brussels..

Unfortunately mister CanRoachBugIn won't be able to drop some UBD-soundz coz he has to work! Yours truly will be replacing him, spinning some records with Monsieur Harry Pop himself, maybe a little b2b-session, we'll see..

Make sure you don't miss out on the amazing parisians called VIUD MOTH (STARTING @ 21:30!!!) who will give us a sneak preview of their upcoming album on the Umbrelladelika-label coming out later this year.

Full summer-program on the Umbrelladelika-blog

Hope to see you there!
