The Rudies complete the ~ bougez bougez ~ line-up


The Rudies are the producersduo behind the program Radio Taxi. But above all, they are Ghentworld-famous for combining an amazing amount of music styles. “Tino Tozzi” and “Juan Jose” constantly explore dance music in its widest range; from disco to funk and electro – with a clear preference for more exotic influences such as cumbia, bhangra, afrobeat, samba, baile funk, balkan, bollywood, kuduro, and so on. 

For sure their sets are surprising, innovative and eclectic. They’re all about earopening dance tunes crossing musical borders.

Les Cerveaux Lents play at ~ bougez bougez ~


The members from Les Cerveaux Lents share their common passion for klezmer and gipsy music since 2002, but until now deliberately kept the band in the intimate pleasure background of their other musical projects like Absynthe Minded and Va Fan Fahre. We all know what happened to those two, so Les Cerveaux Lents is back in the game.

And how! Their first full album “Heiβ und fürchterlich”, which was released a few months ago, is a fresh and joyful combination of klezmer with influences going from Arabian to African sounds with a hint of jazzy Django swing guitar. 

Don’t be mistaken though: the tunes are catchy, the rhythms infectious enough to have your legs badly shaken.

New playlist: prelisten our next parties


The music we collect is carefully selected on its dance pedigree and complexity of influences and variety of rhythms. Dancing is the very core of our events. It is not wobbling on endless repeating beats. It’s not waiting till the dj drops a radio hit with a recognizable tune to suddenly go wild. It isn’t shining in front of a photographer’s lens with your whitest teeth either.

It’s just dancing, unconditional dancing without any restrictive barriers. Our parties and concerts are never too crowded to even get a chance to start moving. We keep the dance floor enjoyable and give your shoes all the space they need. So dance, dance, otherwise we are lost**."

Please, enjoy the music.

Dutch-Bosnian sevdahrockers Projekt Rakija play at ~ bougez bougez ~


Bosnia is where the roots of Projekt Rakija lie. Frontman Igor Sekulović fled from his birth country to the Netherlands as a child during the 90’s war, and started a big band some 15 years later. Consisting of 10 musicians, a cartoonist and a graphic designer, Projekt Rakija finds a refreshing recipe for renewing the traditional Bosnian blues, sevdalinje, by crossing genres, bringing together artistic disciplines, and adding non-traditional sounds and instruments. The authentic balkan dance music is combined with very energetic rhythms, a rock attitude, bass drums and brass kicks.

Watch their final song closing the Sziget festival, where legendary balkan bands play balkan music in the middle of the balkans, and you’ll realize Dutch insanity added to the true spirit of a hardcore balkan feast is a guarantee for getting completely nuts at the end of the night. Right at the moment it’s time for the party, with resident dj’s from binair01 and Radio Taxi.
