The 3rd edition of the binair01 gare centrale concert series focuses on contemporary evolutions of different dance rhythms. It combines one of the greatest original pioneers of electrobalkanswing with the direct descendant of the greatest flamencohiphop pioneers.
Both ElectroRumbaiao and Max Pashm Band turn traditional rhythms into solid dance music with a greasy electronic layer on top. Max Pashm (UK) is the big name behind the classic cult album 'Never mind the Balkans', which delivered some world famous party killers in full balkan- and electroswing hype. In the same period some great Spanish bands created a true landslide in the flamenco nuevo, rumba Catalana and mestizo scene. Ojos De Brujo took the lead with an astonishing and unique mix of flamencorhythms, strong hiphopshots and other electronic influences. From their ashes rises a new project, with the same Panko Gabas Criado as a driving force. ElectroRumbaiao (ESP) takes the work of the genius pioneers to a next level by pimping rumbatiempo and flamencoduende with Brazilian percussion, breakbeats, electro and drum'n'bass.A danceworkshop, two international topbands and a hell of a dj-set party in one night, one venue, two rooms.

① Danceworkshop Electro Swing
This dance can be danced in couple, or solo. This workshop will focus on the solo part. No experience needed, just the drive to dance and to have fun.
Shana teaches Swing and Blues at De Ingang and has her danceroots in swing, lindyhop and modern dance. She’ll mix those styles and the result will be some energetic, fun dancing to use on the dancefloor opening seconds later.
ElectroRumbaiao fuses the richness of Brazilian percussion, the magic of Balkan music and the complexity of Flamenco with electronica and visuals. The driving force behind this new project is DJ Panko, one of the most famous Dj’s from Barcelona’s Mestizo music scene and a pioneer in mixing Flamenco breaks. Dj Panko is known worldwide as one of the founders of Ojos de Brujo, in which he won the Latin Grammy Award and BBC Awards.
The Brazilian flavour comes from Alan Sousa, who has worked with some of the best Brazilian and Spanish artists such as Gilberto Gil, Netinho, Armandinho, Carlos Núñez, Macaco, and ZULU 9.30. Redbull (!) award winning Moldavian accordionist Anatol Eremciuc brings the Balkan colour in the Brazilian Bahia and the Spanish Flamenco – strangely blending through solid electronica. Add Andalucian flamenco singer Izä and Cuban rapper Kumar Sublevao-Beat, and you might have a clue of what to expect: layered, innovating dance music tempting mind, soul and feet.
③ Max Pashm Band
The band was founded in 2006 and features some of Europe’s leading and finest world, rock'n'roll and jazz musicians. 2008 saw the release of the now classic cult album ‘Never mind the Balkans’ which reached number 2 in the BBC world music charts and broke new ground on behalf of the global fusion genre.
As well as all the traditional and electronic influences, the music contains obvious balkan and swing rhythms, but also flavours of dub, ska, hip-hop and rock, blending many genres and styles to create a unique sound and performance, with lyrics in English, Greek, Bulgarian, Yiddish and many other languages.
Get ready to see the pioneer of Electrobalkanswing for the very first time live on a Belgian stage.
Mnsr zér0 combines an expanded music collection from all quarters of our planet with traditional clubmix techniques. The sum of classical beatmatching and unconventional dancetunes results in a unique sound.
His sets are surprising blends of greasy balkan with a crazy gipsy wink, super tight electric cumbiabeats on eclectic afrolatinoriffs, hot Spanish nuevo flamenco melting on übercooled Scandinavian swinghip-hop, rumba Catalána versus African clubzouk, contagious ska infecting French jazz manouche, solid reggaetón devouring fragile tango, Arabian raps clashing with uptempo klezmer. His mixes always feature an exciting variety of rhythms and are a real relief for people addicted to dancing and searching for challenges beyond the simple beats of shallow radio hit music.
