binair01's resident dj mnsr zér0

01/09/2019

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.

Ghetto Kumbé ● Sonar 19/7 22u30

13/07/2019

Ghetto Kumbé is the epitome of contemporary, innovative and highly energetic afrolatin music, dolling around with new electronic influences and gently spreading new layers over a rich legacy of traditional elements. The band is composed of three of the most skilful musicians from the vivid Colombian dance music scene: El Guajiro (La 33, Sidestepper), Chongo (Sidestepper, Ondatrópica, Toto La Momposina,…) and Doctor Keyta (Zarabanda, L’arpeggiata).

The result of their prodigious collaboration is a unique blend of traditional west African rhythms and powerful Caribbean electro beats. The all present afro-Colombian frame of Cumbia, Bullerengue, Son Palenquero, Chande and Chalupa pays respect to the ancient people of Colombia, their traditions, their terrestrial relations and ritual dancing.

So, is this band then ‘the ultimate innovative act from the emerging Colombian melting pot’? Yes and no. They’re much more than that. Their music features Ghanaian singers and European producers, merging three continents together in gaitas, marimbas, enchanting voices of Africa and powerful electronic beats from the UK bass music scene. Expect a tremendously infectious dance machine, opening a new era to the Afro-Colombian fusion of styles.

Sonar Gentse Feesten ● playlist (Youtube)

13/07/2019

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.

This playlist is dedicated to afro/latin dance rhythms focusing on dancehall, afrotrap and kuduro, preparing for the Sonar dancefloor on 19 & 20 July. There's also a Spotify version and a Deezer version. Some mixtapes are shared on mixcloud.
