DISCO KIDS -- Recyclart -- Sunday 8th of November


I've done many kids events in the last 10 years but it's always special to return to the place where it all started, Recyclart. 

This sunday, the 8th of November, it's time to take your kids to the coolest party in Brussels, maybe even in Belgium and it's totally free!!

All kids in between 2 and 10 years welcome at this special event in the same venue Brussels' alternative crowd goes down at night. A lot of different things to explore and have fun with this sunday afternoon, in between 14h & 18h. 

There will be an amazing photo-studio by my good friends OST Collective that takes the little ones to another dimension, all kinds of fun workshops. Josworld takes care of the 'interactive visuals' accompanying my fresh kids-set. There will be a space called 'Kaputorama' where everything can break :) Also the legendary Fotomaton will be installed for some cool photos. Live concert by 'Ik en den Theo' and a magisterial tombola to top it all off. 

Invite all the kids you know, it is a sunday afternoon and I guarantee that all parents will have a great time also.. 

Here's a small soft taster.. flashback to 2007.. and yes, Dj Fiësto is yours truly ;)

ARAB STREET SOUNDS @ RECYCLART




Its that time of year again.. summer is slowly starting and festivals pop up everywhere.. One of the festivals I played for several years starts tomorrow!


We have the pleasure to play at the ARAB STREET SOUNDS PARTY! 

..all happening on July 3rd..


22:00 > 23:00 Gonzo & Lowdjo (outside)
23:00 > 00:30 Mutamassik
00:30 > 02:00 Islam Chipsy & EEK (Egypt)
02:00 > 03:30 Gonzo (dabke)
03:30 > 05:00 Lowdjo (Electro Chaabi)


The nice people over at Recyclart wrote a nice short text bout me (blushing)

...
Toujours surprenant, toujours innovant, sans cesse en quête de nouveau matériau, Lowdjo reste un des alchimistes musicaux les plus éclectiques et intelligents de Belgique (et d’ailleurs). Il fait aussi dans l’électronique vintage, ethnique et futuriste. Pour ce soir, il a jeté son dévolu sur un set electro chaabi.
 
...

Steeds verrassend, steeds zichzelf vernieuwend, onophoudelijk op zoek naar nieuw materiaal blijft Lowdjo één van de meest veelzijdige en intelligente muziekalchemisten van België (en daarbuiten). Hij grossiert evenzeer in vintage, etnica als futuristische electronica. Voor vanavond heeft hij zich toegelegd op een electro chaabi set. 


PROMOM!XxX


 See you on Friday the 3rd of July, hopefully!

Studio 151 (Nublu) - New York


Tonight I'll be playing my third and last gig in the Big Apple. 
 My time here has been really amazing but exhausting.. will be happy to get back home. 

The spot tonight is Studio 151, Nublu's new space.

If you haven't heard of Nublu Records you should check them out, if you've been listening to my sets or heard me playing Turkish records you definitely have heard it before. They reissued some amazing tracks, cult classics. 

I invited my friend Teleseen​ to join the party :)

Really exciting this will be my last gig in New York, so if you have any friends here hit them up and tell them to come and dance, freak out, get drunk or whatever.. It'll be good, that's a promise!!
