① La Chiva Gantiva (BE/COL/CHIL/VNM ○ album release concert)
The South-American sound tonight is brought by La Chiva Gantiva, one of the most important bands representing the new Colombian music flow with a legendary live reputation. They fuse innovative Afro-Colombian music in the melting pot of cosmopolitan Brussels with hyper contagious funky rock and solid rap. The band is as diverse in composition as it is in mixing influences, with musicians from Colombia, Belgium, Vietnam and Chili. Tonight they will officially release their brand new album 'Despegue', which you can prelisten here:

▸ album Deezer ▷ goo.gl/o9GVms
Rumbaristas is a new band founded by musicians from Amparanoia (Spain) and the Belgian proud Orchestre International du Vetex and Think Of One. Rumbaristas represents the mestizo from the South of Europe: underground cross-over on a solid rumba catalana foundation with loads of influences and rhythms from Sicily to the Balkans.
③ Mnsr Zéro (host dj-set ○ resident binair01)
Mnsr Zéro's sets are surprising blends of the latest innovative cross-over partysounds from all corners of our planet. Think exciting tropical bass from the hottest areas around the equator, deep and low trap between South-Africa, Barcelona and Argentina, Arab dabke from Beirut's pulsing nightclubs, Belgrado's evolutions of crazy balkan and gipsystyle dancing, swingrhythms mixed up with Scandinavian rap, AfroLatin grooves like reggaetón, electrocumbia or faster kuduro- and afrobeats. The list of names and styles is endless, we'd rather call it move-your-body music; an elixir through dancing. His mixes are a real relief for people addicted to dancing and searching for challenges beyond the simple beats of shallow radio hit music.
