binair01's resident dj mnsr zér0
Mnsr zér0 combines an expanded music collection from all quarters of our planet with traditional clubmix techniques. The sum of classical beatmatching and unconventional dancetunes results in a unique sound.
His sets are surprising blends of greasy balkan with a crazy gipsy wink, super tight electric cumbiabeats on eclectic afrolatinoriffs, hot Spanish nuevo flamenco melting on übercooled Scandinavian swinghip-hop, rumba Catalána versus African clubzouk, contagious ska infecting French jazz manouche, solid reggaetón devouring fragile tango, Arabian raps clashing with uptempo klezmer. His mixes always feature an exciting variety of rhythms and are a real relief for people addicted to dancing and searching for challenges beyond the simple beats of shallow radio hit music.

➁ Tcha Limberger Trio live ● Balkan Sessions festival 2018
♫ 20:00 - 21:00 | Tcha Limberger Trio (BE/HUN)
Composer, genius violin player, guitarist and singer Tcha Limberger belongs to that tiny circle of world class musicians living on Belgian soil. Born half tzigane, or manouche, or European nomad, his musical mission is to break the existing prejudices towards Rom people from Eastern Europe by expanding their rich history and culture. Thanks to his incredible versatility, Tcha Limberger is like no other able to connect two historical sides of the Eastern-European music in all its beauty: the jazz manouche and the Rom music, thus resulting in a combination of gypsy swing and Balkan chants. At the binair01 ● Balkan Sessions festival ● 2018, Tcha Limberger Trio will bridge the acoustic live story part perfectly with the full band international headliner part, introducing the gypsy swing initiation at the end of his concert. Listen to some more Tcha Limberger music clips here!
