Representation by Earconditioning



I'm happy to announce that from now on I'll be represented by Earconditioning, based in Santa Cruz - Tenerife. Excited to be on the roster with Gonjasufi, D. Wattsriot, Fun-Da-Mental, Grenouille, KingLMan, RoughAmericana, The Moody Boys & Socos Duo. 

For the occasion I rewrote my biography.. here you go

Lowdjo, hailing from Brussels, has been djing for 15 years under different alter ego's and has an extremely varied taste what probably makes him the most eclectic dj in Belgium. Whether he's playing tunes for kids, rocking a big festival crowd or banging hardcore beats in an underground squat, he leaves every crowd astonished.

Lowdjo has always had a preference for the more bizarre, obscure & experimental music. He takes you on a journey with his ethnic beats extraordinaire, all laced together by a tantalizing mix of contemporary electronics. Lowdjo takes you on a dizzying trip exploring the globe's weird musical heritage.

He joined Foton Records during the early 00's, who organized the legendary FOtones-nights in his hometown and abroad. Dropping different vibes and putting dancefloors on fire in over 10 countries, spread over two continents, playing along with many of his heroes like: Einstürzende Neubauten, Pole, Emir Kusturica & his No Smoking Orchestra, DJ/ rupture, The Herbaliser, Modeselektor, Jack Dangers (MeatBeatManifesto), Alpha Blondy, just to name a few.

The last few years Lowdjo has been releasing a lot of cassettes through his Belgian label Comphusion and he also releases music on London's Discrepant label together with Gonçalo Cardoso.

Lowdjo & Gonzo are a live/dj/audio visual duo whose performance aims to deconstruct the rigid structure of folk and world music. By pinpointing music styles from all over the world they 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.
