At an early age Mickey already got hooked to the more interesting sounds of the 60′, 70′s and 80′s, never losing track of all the hot music that is being released today. Some 10 years ago he decided to start producing his own sounds and this soon led to his first release on Relish Records. Being charted by The Magician in his ‘Magictapes’ has helped put the spotlight on Mickey in recent years. DJ bookings over Belgium and beyond followed, highlights being gigs in New York (Nouveau York Party), Hollywood (Dim Mak Studio), China & Australia, whilst landing a Belgian residency at Libertine Supersport club in Brussels.
As a producer Mickey has fast become a force of his own. Playing all instruments himself Mickey has already done some song writing for other bands and continues to grow as a producer. After his first E.P. he surprised the world with killer remixes for Housse de Racket on Kitsune, Headman, Tyson & Beni (on Modular). Recently he released an E.P. on the influential Belgian Smile label and he is already working on a follow-up for that one. Both as a producer and as a DJ Mickey’s sound is a combination of house, pop, disco and a lot more, more and more.EAB
Rick Shiver is a truly eclectic dj, he seamlessly spins a broad range of new/ old sounds and styles geared towards one thing – getting the crowd to move. Perpetually ahead of the curve, he has no problem playing records side by side that most would never think to put together. His main technique is that whatever works gets thrown into the mix…
Rick Shiver is based in Brussels, and gets very regularly invited to spin records as he’s recognized as part of the best dh’s around… After years of messing with vintage synths and drum machines, Mr. Shiver is finally coming out with some productions of his own. He just did his 1st remix for the mighty Joy Wellboy, got a collaboration with DC Salas almost ready, and more in the pipeline… COME TOGETHER “Today on his program you will hear music. All the rest are just labels. We know that music is music. Come together as one”.EA
Christoph has been interested in electronic sounds ever since he can remember hearing music. Just to be clear, yes, this was mainly cheap mainstream dance music, but unfortunately, Burial and Nico Jaar were still hiding in the abyss of electronic music genius. At the age of 16, his brother brought him to the Dirty Dancing parties in Mirano/Brussels. Lovely idea. Chris loved chasing girls on the turning dancefloor but he soon wanted more. He wanted to responsible for all this magic, this screaming, this crying…And since he didn’t have enough money to buy himself a nightclub, he decided he wanted to be a DJ, fair enough. One year later, together with his childhood friend Ben Marzys, Wirspielen was born, and they were playing their first tune in front of this very same crowd as Resident DJ’s until the end in 2009. Homeless? Not for long.
A new story began with the Libertine Supersport opening. Under his moniker « Lefrog » (something to do with his way of dancing apparently) Christoph got involved in the bookings and the general promotion together with Renaud Deru and Lorenzo Serra. 2 years of Madness, 2 years where Christoph rolled up his sleeves and took his role to heart (mainly drinking and partying). Today, Lefrog’s love to see people smiling and dancing on his fine contemporary selection is authentic. Call it house, deep house, or even …EAB
As a kid A.N.D.Y. a.k.a. Andy Faisca didn’t have to think what he would like to be when he grew up… Music was and is the answer! From a very early age this multi- instrumentalist was writing and making his own music. With a background of 70′s and 80′s disco, pop, hip hop and rock music Andy is a fanatic of all things past, turning them into music for the future. His love for the past is reflected in an almost religious use of old analogue gear, but also a general love for vintage stuff. At age 17 Andy discovered electronic music and started DJ’ing. He soon landed playing regularly at Libertine Supersport club and his quest for a vin- tage personal sound hasn’t stopped since. His first project called Mustang was born in 2009 with a debut E.P. on Gomma Recordings called ‘Chameleon Circus’. Prestigious remix assignments soon fol- lowed for Vitalic, Poni Hoax, Monarchy and many others. Recently he released the killer single ‘Shooting Love’ on Different Recordings, which has been remixed by Canadian house sensation Jeremy Glenn and by Black Strobe. Beginning of this year, he decided to start his proper solo project under his own name A.N.D.Y. For 2012 A.N.D.Y. plans loads of releases and remixes, because Andy is on a mission, a vintage mission aimed at the future!EAB
