Bombataz consists of four musical all-rounders picking flavours from every possible genre, in order to obtain a unique yet very danceable cocktail. Their first EP '¡Kapao!', released under Fake Records, presents the audience a first taste of this unique approach. Embark on a wonderful ride through their universe and brace yourself to encounter everything on the wide musical spectrum between melancholy and playfulness, added with some crazy voice effects and out-of-this-world samples. First single 'Frankenstein' is proof that this exciting sound could transcend all borders. With spectacular virtuoso and a sharp sense of humor, Bombataz will nonchalantly demolish every stage they set foot on.
with Vitja Pauwels (guitar, voice), Hendrik Lasure (keys), Ruben De Maesschalck (bass) en Casper Van De Velde (drums).
Willy M. is the alter ego of Willem Malfliet. More info will follow soon!
On his first solo record, FULCO sings of everyday madness. The Dutchman from Ghent already played with BeraadGeslagen, STADT and De Beren Gieren, but in the meantime he worked continuously on nine catchy songs. Think of colourful synths and nice drums. Lots of melody and even post-punk. With examples like Connan Mockasin, Sly & The Family Stone, and Mac DeMarco. With his loose musicality and wonderfully rich language FULCO made a beautiful Dutch-language pop album.
“Maniac Maison” マニアックメゾン
Maniac Maison is the electronic musical playground of musicians Shoko Igaraki, Casimir Liberski (bands...) and Lucien Fraipont (Robbing Millions, Aksak Maboul,...).
On their first record, the 3 piece band from Japan/Belgium based in Brussels went searching on the hidden corners of their respective hard drives and dug up a selection of explorative and addictive gems that became the soundtrack of their Belgo-Japanese friendship. Taking inspirations from the yellow magic orchestra galaxy as well as the local telex heritage, their highly melodic electronic music focusing as much on rich harmonic qualities, rhythmic symmetrical midi explorations and the bleeps and blops of their daily life. A synth band by synth neophytes with great musical abilities. Their rich respective musical backgrounds combined create some surprisingly stimulating music for your computer brains while perfect to bang your head on.
Maniac Maison’s self produced debut effort is in the making and expected for 2021.

Slagwerk is a collective primarily focussing on contemporary experimental music. Their aesthetic ranges from metamodern internetculture to endeavours into spiritual ambiences contaminated with strikingly metallic club environments.
David Numwami has already had 1,000 lives. Gifted musician, composer, DJ, creator of the band Le Colisée, he quickly became a key figure of the underground Brussels and Paris.
Today, if he's not in the studio with Nicolas Godin (Air), it's because he's jamming with Flavien Berger, or that he plays Coachella with Charlotte Gainsbourg... And his adventures through the world inspires him to make songs. From Tokyo to New York, from Los Angeles to Stockholm, he brings this all back, locks himself in his hotel room and records all night long, cloudy, timeless and fascinating. Love songs with sincerity and a disarming intelligence.
An unclassifiable and out-of-the-ordinary artist, he's like the Basquiat of pop.

Teletext is the artistic platform of theatre-musicians Sascha Bornkamp and Leonore Spee. Based on their fascination for the cold emotionality of the Dutch language, Teletext makes Dutch-language music and develops performances. In previous projects the music has made the crossing to theatre, performance and literature. Alan Van Rompuy (A z e r t y klavierwerke, Vieze Meisje, Bandler Ching) is a regular Teletext musician.
Brussels based sextet Phoenician Drive makes a happy mix of various influences: Oriental music, African sounds, Krautrock and psychadelica from the 70's. This musical experiment we sometimes refer to as Afrikrautrock, results in a magnificent album carrying that name and is being brought to live on stage with exquisite musicians giving it all.
