UK Shows (Oxford & London) - Halloween weekend

On Saturday 2nd of November Gonzo & myself will be heading to Oxford to perform at ANOTHER US at Grove House Rotunda. "An event in a comfortable, friendly and unique space, with a focus on original live performance". We'll be doing a LIVE improvised audiovisual, multi-layered set. There will be cakes, soup and hot drinks.. Bring your own alcohol ;)

The next day, Sunday November 3rd Discrepant & JP Music present a very rare appearance by Filastine in London!
Filastine uses percussion to fire off sounds and synchronized video from a heap of electronics wired to an amplified shopping cart. The new live set for the £00T tour uses a custom software to pull off some deep AV madness, and sees Filastine expanded to tour as a duo or trio, joined onstage by Indonesian vocalist Nova or one of the collaborating cellists from the album. Benefit gig for grass roots orgs.

Support comes from another very special rare appearance from the duo Gonzo & Lowdjo performing part 2 of their celebrated cassette releases خشة
Gonzo & Lowdjo are a live/dj/audio visual duo whose performance aims to deconstruct the rigid structure of folk and world music. By pinpoiting music styles from all over the world Gonzo & Lowdjo create an ingenious mishmash of (un)popular music mixed with an array of other influences, western or not. Their highly original take on world music has been released on limited edition cassettes that sell out instantly. 

I'm super excited about our new tape releases on Discrepant. Gonzo delivers an original Dabke-tape while Lowdjo explores the recent tendencies in Chaabi music.

All this is happening on November 3rd at the Lexington in London. The new double cassette-release will be for sale at both events.

Baby / Kids Tapes

After years of spinning tunes for the kids on the infamous Disco Kids parties in Brussels, happening on Sunday afternoons. I finally got round to making a decent recording with quite some tracks I played from 2006 until 2013. The result is a 130 minutes, high quality tape with a 'Baby Mix' on Side A & a 'Kids Mix' on Side B, recorded on rustic orange tapes with original, unique artwork by Frank Van Heesvelde. Initial copies come in aqua blue cases.

There will be no digital available but if you want to hear a preview, I'll be mixing some of these tracks featured on the tape, tomorrow on Radio Campus Bruxelles (92.1 FM or online streaming).. at 17h!!

If you want to order yourself a copy, get in touch through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or simply through email: lowdjo//at//gmail//dot//com

Sjieke Dinges - Ketnet

I advice everyone to watch TV tonight. A little while ago I made a library of tracks that are used for editing a new kids show on Ketnet, on national Belgian TV. 

The show is called 'Sjieke Dinges' and is about young artists developing their creative skills. 

Watch the first episode, right HERE 

If you follow what I do or listen to some of my mixes you'll definitely recognize some of the tracks used in this show..

Make sure your kids tune in ;)

Big shoutout to Jan Van De Velde for getting me involved!
