Sunny Sundays at Ketelhuis, Eindhoven

Next Sunday, I’m spinning the goods with my man DEES (www.dees.tv) at Ketelhuis – two steps away from Skatepark Area 51 in Eindhoven. There’s a huge BBQ and a chef that’s second to none. There’s even a pool, and it’s not just there for keeping the beer cold. Bring boardshorts & bikinis!

All 45 goodness

Amazing night at Cafe Piek in Rotterdam. A slew of DJ’s brought their finest 45s and spun into the night. A very satisfying night. Here we all are, proudly showing off the goods as we’re supposed to. From left to right: Don Gio, Joe Sixpackk, Senor Alberto, Jony von Trash, Suzy Creamcheese & Eveline Knievel, Dave Von Raven, Gary van Niks & Maurice Joris.

Piek Up Rotterdam



Rotterdam state of mind

Next saturday, July 20: Piek Up at the smallest club in Rotterdam: 8 DJ’s spin 45s only, each has 30 minutes to do their thing. I’m excited to join the line-up including Dave Von Raven (The Kik), Rotterdam famed Senor Alberto and Dandy Dave, and 4 more great DJ’s and collectors. Be early, as we’ll draw straws on the line up – you never know who’s up next!

Givin’ up food for funk

Right now, I’m busy with my favourite nightly pastime: picking a selection of records to play this weekend. Saturday, I’m spinning funk & soul at a wedding on the Dutch island of Terschelling. Two wonderful people celebrating their love with a funky party for their family and friends – just what the doctor ordered I’d say.

On Sunday, the beat goes on at the fancy fair in Sintunnis, where I DJed before this Spring. The grooves were so phat, the bar owner wanted more and they will get it! I’ve got some disco packed for the occasion, and some old school hip hop bangers to spice up the Funk.

My record of the day: Candi Staton – “I’d Rather Be An Old Man’s Sweetheart”



Three stripes

It’s my man Mr. Boogie’s birthday on Jun. 29 and he celebrates in style with a funky get together at his favorite bar in Boxmeer. What other DJs to book than Sore, Nappie, Hence Dupree and miself. Hip hop, funk, beats – it’s gonna be good.

A few more gigs

tac_logoApril 12: I’m spinning at TAC Eindhoven, a creative community that’s very up and coming in Eindhoven. Will DJ at the opening of the REFRAME festival, where all facets of photography will be on display for 10 days, with my friends KID SUNDANCE, DEES and NICK LEBEAT of Kelderman/Van Noort fame. There will be some presentations from 19:00, party around ten-ish I guess.

April 19: the 24th edition of weLOVEweFUNK (we’re almost 4 years up and running with a party every 6 weeks, more or less). This time, no guest DJ’s as you’re used to by now, but just me and my partner in crime DJ DAMNRIJT. It’s gonna be floorfillers all around, no obscurities, just funky goodness from the hitcharts. Nice for a change. Free entrance as always.

April 20: a few friends of mine in hardcore punk bands SAID AND DONE and COLD REALITY throw a moshy get together in the village of Sintunnis, Brabant. They asked me to counter the fury with some soothing grooves. Will be a good one for sure. Free entrance.



Spinning with Pete Isaac (UK)

March 8, there’s yet another weLOVEweFUNK party at Skatepark Area 51 in Eindhoven. This time, we’ve found Pete Isaac willing & able to show what he means by Jelly Jazz. It’s an attitude rather than a style of music…be sure to read the upcoming interview on welovewefunk.nl with this institute on Funk, Soul, Jazz and Latin who has been around for more than 20 years in the UK Funk scene.

Too much monkey business…

Lot of things going on right now, so I’ll keep it short: tomorrow is the 21st edition of weLOVEweFUNK with Pushin Wood Soundsystem and Planet Monkey from Groningen. They kick some serious ass so I’ll meet you up at Skatepark Area51 in Eindhoven.



Just a few days until…DJ FORMAT

I’m beyond sikedness to be able to share the stage with DJ Format from Brighton, UK, a true turntable wizard that no others can match.

One of my greatest personal DJ heroes is doing two shows in Holland – this Friday, the beat goes on at our very own Area51 in Eindhoven. Together with our buddies in GRUB, this 20th edition of weLOVEweFUNK should be a slammer altogether. Other DJs on the bill: 2HYPE, NATIVE, RECI-P, GEORGES PUSHIN WOOD and DAMNRIJT.

On Saturday Nov 3, Format’s playing at BAMBEATS, a kick-ass party that my friends in Pushin Wood Soundsystem throw every 6 months. Also DJ Kwak from Brussels will throw some yummy 45s on the platters. See you there!

In case you don’t know who Format is: check out this video for his latest album. The first 10 seconds should give you an idea what he’s all about.
