Tell us about yourself:
Started playing 50’s – 80’s jazz, rhythm & blues, funk, soul and disco for several years, however growing up during the rise of the Belgian electronic music scene, beats have always been deeply rooted. I’m co-organizing the Tuupe-events and just started my own project by the name of Ojoo Music. Digging deep, long sets and playing vinyl are essential in my approach to DJing. You can not fit me into one category, I’m a bit of an all-rounder fully in love with the dust and grooves of that good old black plastic magic called vinyl.
Your top 5 picks & why:
Mr. White– The sun can’t compare
Old but gold, music that transcends time and genre.
2. Claro Intelecto – Peace of Mind
2003 Electro classic, truly a masterpiece. You don’t talk whilst this one is on the platter, you just listen and experience.
3. R.P – Irma
Genius producer! Dreamy, mysterious and has a Twin Peaks feel to it.
4. Moreira – The Truth
Love the label, the artists and their commitment: “vinyl as weapon of mass dissemination of their musical works.” Played this one several times to close a set and always gets the crowd going.
5. Convextion – Saline Moon
Such an excellent produced track, funky yet dreamy with that perfect playful percussion. I could listen and dance to this for a lifetime. Actually the whole album is to die for.
