On Friday evening we pay a tribute to the café Oud Drogenbos where music history was once written, alors on danse… DJ La Sirocco prepares us for take-off navigating between afro, disco, hip-hop and bass. Critical Crash Party takes over with a funky chaos on the bike. Ernesto Gonzalez, rising star of the Belgian underground scene, performs with Bear Bones, Lay Low, alienating exotic tunes and tropical psychedelia. Accou concludes with a set of hypnotic synth.
La Sirocco was a chroniqueuse and music programmer at Radio Grenouille for many years, and has been active at Radio Panik for the past ten years. Her musical style navigates between afro, disco, hip-hop and bass.
Bear Bones, Lay Low is the nickname Ernesto González, Venezuelan artist based in Belgium since 2003, uses to explore the changing psychedelic moods of electronic sound. Having released music in various formats and labels such as Sloow Tapes, Troglosound, Full Of Nothing and KRAAK, Bear Bones, Lay Low takes you on an energetic journey through the most twisted areas of the cartoon world hidden in your mind!
Accou’s performances are journeys: through collages of field recordings blended with a slightly worrying incoherent juxtaposition of synthesizers, he tells a flamboyant yet delusional pilgrimage of a marauder at the edges of the somewhat coming enlightenment.
