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 southern dance rhythms, preparing for the ● colorCalor ● dancefloor on march 31. There's also a Deezer version and a Youtube version. Some mixtapes are shared on mixcloud.

Mixtape balkan #2 by resident dj mnsr zér0

25/07/2016

This 2nd compilation of selected balkan music is a sequence of full tracks, often edited, but deliberately hardly mixed in order to preserve the complete song.

The compilation series are therefore more meant as a preview of the music collection used in live mixes. Although not representing the atmosphere of party dj-sets, cutting and mixing tracks more agressively and pushing people into wildness, they still are great stuff to enjoy dancing in your living room - or providing some thrill whilst working.

Imam Baildi's 2nd best global pop song

28/04/2016

Never thought we'd ever say this, but the band delivering the 2nd best global pop hit performs on our stage at ~ bougez bougez ~.

This track from their latest album is indeed a very impressive nostalgic love song, wrapping you into an utterly comfortable atmosphere of drifting away clouds.


Imam Baildi is one of the most popular and famous bands in actual Greece, and you are very welcome to enjoy them in 2 weeks. Don't miss these jewel musicians - they won't come back soon.



Some tickets are still available at €13! Hurry.



Les Cerveaux Lents play at ~ bougez bougez ~

06/04/2016

The members from Les Cerveaux Lents share their common passion for klezmer and gipsy music since 2002, but until now deliberately kept the band in the intimate pleasure background of their other musical projects like Absynthe Minded and Va Fan Fahre. We all know what happened to those two, so Les Cerveaux Lents is back in the game.

And how! Their first full album “Heiβ und fürchterlich”, which was released a few months ago, is a fresh and joyful combination of klezmer with influences going from Arabian to African sounds with a hint of jazzy Django swing guitar. 

Don’t be mistaken though: the tunes are catchy, the rhythms infectious enough to have your legs badly shaken.

|| Les Cerveaux Lents | in concert at ~ bougez bougez ~ | 13.05 VOORUIT Gent ||

Dutch-Bosnian sevdahrockers Projekt Rakija play at ~ bougez bougez ~

04/04/2016

Bosnia is where the roots of Projekt Rakija lie. Frontman Igor Sekulović fled from his birth country to the Netherlands as a child during the 90’s war, and started a big band some 15 years later. Consisting of 10 musicians, a cartoonist and a graphic designer, Projekt Rakija finds a refreshing recipe for renewing the traditional Bosnian blues, sevdalinje, by crossing genres, bringing together artistic disciplines, and adding non-traditional sounds and instruments. The authentic balkan dance music is combined with very energetic rhythms, a rock attitude, bass drums and brass kicks.

Watch their final song closing the Sziget festival, where legendary balkan bands play balkan music in the middle of the balkans, and you’ll realize Dutch insanity added to the true spirit of a hardcore balkan feast is a guarantee for getting completely nuts at the end of the night. Right at the moment it’s time for the party, with resident dj’s from binair01 and Radio Taxi.

The binair01 ✦ C O L O RC A L O R ✦ series are dj-set editions which discover melting dance music from all over the world. This 3rd edition supports our friends from Sheeprock.

▸ 13.05, VOORUIT
▸ 3 bands, 3 dj's
▸ limited amount tickets at reduction price €13

This edition is dedicated to bohemian music with restless hearts. We lift 2 "caravan" bands on stage: one international famous French-Polish manouche-balkan-electroband, one national pride of exquisite musicians in true Django style, both of them officially presenting their brand new albums.


The 6th edition of the traditional binair01 New Year's party moves to a bigger venue. It is pure dancing pleasure in its easiest yet attractive form: some dj's, a cosy dancefloor, and above all: an exquisite selection of a wide variety of tunes and rhythms you won't hear anywhere else.


This edition is dedicated to balkan music. Tonight is a joyful celebration of its incredible versatile faces and its ability to fuse genres and people. Some of the best French and Belgian examples of this border crossing phenomenon will make you dance from second # one.
