weLOVEweFUNK continues…

Thursday, finally – we’re back with another edition of weLOVEweFUNK in my home away from home: Eindhoven. It’s the week of Dutch Design Week, internationally known for AAA grade expos of contemporary art & design.

The party’s at Nul Zes, a new venue with lots going for it: small, industrial, hot & sweaty – doesn’t get any better than that you might say. Well come check us out: Kid Sundance, DEES, DamnRijt and myself on the decks with lots of Funk, Soul, Brasil, Hip Hop, Afro and Boogie on the platters. Entrance is 5 euros – preorder via Paypal to welovewefunk@gmail.com.

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!

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!

RSVP here: http://www.facebook.com/events/437146129656142/

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.



…and weLOVEweFUNK continues…

We start the 2012-2013 weLOVEweFUNK season with two special guests from our small nation’s capital: ILLCO and BART FADER from Amsterdam.

ILLCO is known of the famed record store Waxwell in Amsterdam, a regular go-to for international and aspiring DJs like myself. He also organizes the I LOVE VINYL nights, connecting the NY namesake to the old continent’s love for the black gold.

BART FADER, along with two fellas ALVIZ and TACO FETT get the Struttin’ nights going for almost a decade now, I’ve been told. Struttin’ is like weLOVEweFUNK would become, when Eindhoven keeps supporting deep funk & soul nights for many years to come.

These two vinyl junkies will be spinning their choice of funk, hiphop and any related tunes. Don’t miss out on this one, it’s going to be special. Friday 28 september 2012, Skatepark Area51, Klokgebouw 51, Eindhoven, 22:30 showtime, free entrance.



Deep funk with Rich Jammin

Because of my holidays I got no time to upload the flyer of last week’s weLOVEweFUNK party, so here it is. Rich Jammin (Drumsuite) killed it that night, bringing out funk 45s I couldn’t believe seeing in real life. Check his radioshow Meltin Pot and his Mixcloud space for more funk mixes. Join the Facebook group of Meltin Pot to stay updated.

I also did an interview with Rich prior to the show. Check his story out on the weLOVEweFUNK website!
