54SOUND @ Beurscafé
01:30 – 03:00 PHONETICS
Im a dj born and raised in Brussels (Belgium). I bought my 2 first records at Doctor Vinyl when I was 11 and I have been in love with records ever since. I play (Uk) Bass music on one side and pretty much everything else that sounds funky (Hip Hop, Disco, House, Funk, Soul Rhythm and Blues, …) on the other side. That doesn’t really help you forward i guess but yeah, there is just too much good music to stick to one genre.
You could describe my Bass side as Dubstep, Grime, UK Garage, UK Funky, Hip Hop, House, Ghetto tech, Booty, Juke and everything in between. I hate explaining what I play so I think the best thing is to download my mixes come to the parties or check out my blog.

00:00 – 01:30 LE MOTEL
Le Motel is a 25-year old producer and graphic designer based in Brussels. His love for ethnic music combined with elements from footwork, hip-hop, jazz and techno leads to a beautiful collage between electronic and organic elements. This love for eclecticism is also reflects in the people he collabs with such as Roméo Elvis, YellowStraps, Clap! Clap! or recently Aliosha. After having released on TAR (Los Angeles), his last stop was the New Zealand-based Cosmic Compositions for the eclectic Voodoo inspired album ‘OKA’. The album became album of the week on BBC Radio 6, hand-picked by Gilles Peterson. Keep an eye on this guy in the months to follow, as a lot of new releases will follow…
22:30 – 00:00 ARUMBO
Arumbo is a rumba/fusion group based in Barcelona/Brussels bringing danceable songs with melodies from the heart. Their world groove music with influences from the middle east is festive and at the same time elegant.
The voices, the oriental sounds and the combination of musicians make you dream and invade the podium with a mystical and positive energy.
You will be taken on a sunny trip accompanied by a singer with a warm and generous voice that will caress your ears and knows how to excite your emotions.
Arumbo was born in the summer of 2015. The group consists of musicians with different musical backgrounds. The live setting of the band is depending on the occasion.
During their trip through Southern Europe in 2015, Jonas and Marta played their solo repertoire in the streets and this was a hit with the audience. They were invited to play several concerts and thus Arumbo was born. Arumbo is actually working on their debut album. You can listen already to 5 tracks of the EP « Mi Bruselas » on www.arumbo.com
The EP is recorded by “Gorik De Smet” and mixed and masterd By “Joel Condal” (Grabaciones Silvestres).
