Ummet Ozcan
In an age where very few artists break the mold and truly shine through as unique and innovative, Dutch/Turkish star Ummet Ozcan is one of the exceptions to the rule. Not only because of his advanced studio knowledge and the impressive string of dance floor hits this resulted in, it’s also thanks to his enduring presence at worldwide mainstages these last years. A success story that’s about to enter new grounds…
Growing up in the known epicentre of dance music, The Netherlands, it isn’t difficult for Ozcan (1982) to plug into dance music at a young age. “The dance music scene has been very big here since I was a teenager. We’ve had dance music playing on radio stations for over 20 years now”, he explains. So, as soon as he’s good and ready, music starts to come out of Ozcan’s studio.
It won’t take long before he gets the attention he deserves. Since achieving his first major success in 2011 with ‘Reboot’, which spends seven weeks at #1 on Beatport, the veteran DJ’s major hits have been sampled in his peers’ radio podcasts and played at festival mainstages all over the world.
In 2012 his genre-defying #1 smash hit ‘The Box’ is one of the most played records at EDC Las Vegas, while a year later his W&W collab ‘The Code’ is one of the most popular tracks at Ultra Music Festival 2013, followed by the R3hab co-produced, #1 Beatport hit ‘Revolution’ and the remix of Fatboy Slim’s ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat’ together with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
Instantaneous hits
In 2014 and 2015 Ozcan sees another amount of his tracks reach the highest chart positions. ‘Raise Your Hands’, ‘Smash’ and ‘Superwave’ all become instantaneous hits, racking up millions of YouTube views and making it to #1 on Beatport. Also more recent titles like the massive tune ‘The Hum’ (with former Dj Mag #1 duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike) ‘Lose Control’ and ‘Stars’ and his 2016 collab with Tiësto called ‘What you’re waiting for’ are sure shots. Other 2016 titles like ‘Melody’ with Steve Aoki,
‘SpaceCats’, ‘Megatron’ and ‘Don’t Stop’ are proven dance floor essentials. 2017 brings a number of great releases and a highly rewarded remix of Axwell & Ingrosso’s ‘More than you know’.
It’s no surprise that he’s an in-demand talent who’s playing to an international market with gigs at world-renowned clubs and festivals like EDC, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Global Gathering.
Despite his skyrocketing fame, the all-star headliner stays humble and focused, “I don’t care for the fame, I care more about the hard work that goes into music making. I started making music because it was my passion and my hobby.”
Still, the perseverance hasn’t gone unnoticed – by garnering support from a broad array of the world’s top jocks like Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, David Guetta, Avicii, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and Martin Garrix, Ummet Ozcan has solidified his position at the forefront of all-star dance Producers.
Ummet is known as well for his softsynth and sound bank design for well-established music software houses like Rob Papen (Albino, Predator) and Acces Music (Virus). In between shows and studio jobs he is developing music software for the producers community that will pave the way for a fresh new musical experience.

Chocolate Puma
Chocolate Puma is a Dutch DJ/Producers duo consisting of René ter Horst and Gaston Steenkist aka Dj Zki & Dobre. They are two of Holland’s most celebrated producers and with a career spanning 25 years, 400+ releases and countless remixes under their various guises make them a duo whose influence on the European dance music scene cannot be underestimated.
The guys started out producing music in the early 90s, delivering club hits under several artist names. Most famous are probably The Good Men, Jark Prongo and René et Gaston. Just check these names on Spotify or iTunes and discover a collection of awesome oldskool house music!
Drawn together by a common appreciation of the house music movement of the early 90s, their career got off to a turbo-charged start with the release of what would become one of the defining records of their career. Recording under their alias of The Good Men the duo released ‘Give It Up’ on their own Fresh Fruit label in 1992. The record surpassed all expectations, reaching #1 on the US Dance Chart and #5 in the UK Singles Chart, propelling them to unexpected global stardom. ‘Give It Up’ remains a unique record that people still sample and play, and one about which they are extremely proud of.
René and Gaston embarked on a staggeringly diverse and accomplished string of releases, dabbling with house, techno and even breakbeat as the number of aliases they recorded under grew steadily in number. Arguably the best known of these early incarnations was Jark Prongo, the increased recent support for records like ‘Moving Thru Your System’ proving just how ahead of their time they were. Indeed, some of this “strange underground stuff” despite only selling a couple of hundred copies when initially released on Pssst Music has been picked up on and championed by some key players in the German techno scene.
In 2001 the duo came up with what would be their last alias Chocolate Puma.
And like The Good Men, Chocolate Puma got off to a dream start with the release of ‘I Wanna Be U’; another record that became a worldwide hit and reached #6 in the UK Singles chart, prompting an appearance from the duo on Tops of the Pops.
And then after ‘Learning’ in 2002 and A Star Is Born’ in 2003 they released ‘Always And Forever’ in 2005 what again ended up in the UK singles chart, they decided to let go of all those other aliases and go on as Chocolate Puma.
After working with Defected Records for some time, Chocolate Puma and leading dance music label Spinnin' Records have enjoyed a close relationship for the past few years, with the duo establishing themselves as key artists both in the studio and behind the decks. Records like ‘Step Back’, ’Space Sheep’ with Oliver Heldens, ’Steam Train’ (with Hi-Lo), ‘Scrub The Ground’ (with Tommie Sunshine & DJ Funk) and ‘Lullaby’ (with Firebeatz) as well as countless well-received remixes have placed Chocolate Puma in a league of their own and steadily built them a loyal legion of fans all over the world.
It’s no surprise they have regular appearances at major clubs and festivals worldwide, including Hï & Ushuaia Ibiza, Tomorrowland Belgium, Mysteryland The Netherlands, EDC & Omnia Las Vegas, Sensation Korea, Veld Festival Canada, Stereo Live USA.
Head to see a Chocolate Puma live DJ set and three quarters of the tracks you hear will be produced or remixed by them, while the rest contains personal edits of some of their favorite brand new or classic tracks, all mixed and improvised on the fly into one massively energetic set.
Sidney Samson
As a seven year old boy, Sidney started playing the guitar. From there on he knew that he wanted to make music for the rest of his life. After seeing a couple of DMC Mix Championships, his interest in DJ-ing was sparked. He started DJ-ing in 1995 at the age of 14. During that time he mainly played R&B and Hip Hop tunes at local clubs. He switched his style completely to House music in 1999 and became the resident DJ of the 'Exxellent' nights at one of Holland's biggest clubs The Matrixx in 2003. His producing skills really took off in that period.

His first real club banger was called 'It's All Funked Up!' (Spinnin' Records). After the release in 2003, Sidney knew that he couldn't stop here and locked himself up in his studio. 'Nobody Move', 'Rock This', 'Girls', 'Aeroplane' and 'Viruz' were some resulting floor fillers, just to name a few.

Sidney's career as a producer and DJ took off from there and he quickly became one of the most dominant forces in the Dutch scene. After a number of club hits, Sidney broke into the charts when he released the now infamous: 'Riverside'!

'Riverside' was immediately supported by virtually the entire who's who in dance music and became a worldwide chart hit after conquering club land, reaching platinum status in Australia, entering the UK Charts at #2 and having top 10 chart positions in dozens of countries around the globe.

A lot happened since 'Riverside'. Sidney was already one of the most booked DJ's in his home country, The Netherlands, but Riverside catapulted him into the top of the international DJ scene. Ever since, Sidney has been touring the world, recently playing important festivals and venues like Tomorrowland Belgium, Mysteryland Holland, Electric Zoo, EDC, Las Vegas, Extrema Holland and of course his residency at Surrender (Las Vegas). In November this year Sidney will go on an extensive club and festival tour in Australia and Asia.

Sidney laughs: 'I am really thankful for what Riverside did for my international career, but with the material I am recording now, I hope I can give my fans another ten 'Riversides'!

Sidney's working hard on that. Besides recently remixing for the likes of Katy Perry, David Guetta & Rihanna, Martin Solveig's 'Hello', LMFAO's 'Champagne Showers', Pitbull's megahit 'Give me everything', Enrique Iglesias and J-Lo, Sidney has not stood still with his own productions. On his new label 'RockTheHouze', Sidney releases smash after smash, like 'Duplex', 'Tomahawk' and soon to come, his collaboration with Lil' Jon: 'Mutate'.

Sidney's future looks even brighter when considering the fact that he is slowly but surely expanding his career as producer for some of the world's major pop/urban/dance crossover stars. His recent collaboration with Will.I.Am and Lil' Wayne is only one example of this.

Sidney comments: 'I have always been into crossing borders. I try to remember my roots, which range from hip hop to house, and transform those influences into something new, both in the club and in the studio. I love working with great talents, it doesn't matter to me from which scene they are, pop or underground. I will always stay true to the club scene, but I will never limit myself to doing just one thing. There are too many musical adventures ahead of me and I will love every single one of them!
Mark with a K
Belgian born Mark Carpentier, aka Mark With a K, is one of the biggest names in the hard dance scene, known for his energetic DJ performances which causes hysteria all over the place.

2014 was a year of change and evolution, Mark With a K started performing internationally and one of his dreams to work together with singer/songwriter Chris Willis came out. The collaboration is called 'Something More' and is still a blueprint for Mark With a K's signature sound. After this hit track, the need to make more song based tracks was born.
In 2015 Mark made the track 'See Me Now (For What It's Worth)' which related to his father who passed away when he was a kid. The track was received very well and even got played on Belgian commercial radio MNM and Q-Music.
Always feeling the need to improve himself and breaking rules, 2016 was the year of exploring new boundaries again. With common interest in aspects in hard dance music with Warface, the highly appreciated collab 'Fear of the Dark' was born. It became one of the most frequent played track during the summer of 2016 and still does the trick on every dance floor.
Mark With a K stays forever young and has always something on his sleeve. Be prepared for lots of new music, cool shows and...

As an artist, MC Chucky represents the Hard Electronic Dance Music in more than one way. Not only he gracefully succeeds in amplifying the enthusiasm of the crowd in front of him, he also knows how to lift an artist's performance to a higher level, topping everyone's expectations.

The follow-up "Calling Earth" was again a success with 70,000 singles sold. All this was the start of a successful story. "A Story About House" was to be the next Cherrymoon Trax single, but due to problems with the club it was changed into a new Yves Deruyter single. Unfortunately this single did not achieve any breakthroughs. Nevertheless, his follow-up single, "The Rebel," was immediately signed for the world. "The Rebel" was a top tune and the real international breakthrough for Yves Deruyter.

All this in combination with the first 3D black and white video made by Frank Dewulf who became an important artist with his B-side releases. Yves Deruyter's vision in his music is to make music for the people. It is important to him that people have fun while they're listening/dancing to his music. In the past he used to work with Frederico Santini, but the last couple of years his counterpart was Dirk "M.I.K.E." Dierickx (Push, The Blackmaster, M.I.KE., Moon Project, etc.) who is currently one of the most important producers at Bonzai Records. The single "Rhythmic Bazz" was released in June 2001.

Pat B
Living near the border of Holland and Belgium this Belgian Dutchman soon surrendered to the virus called Jumpstyle! After some years of playing in small clubs and venues things got a little bit more serious when in 2005 his first releases had seen the light! Once a dream and now becoming a reality!
Patrick lived for his music and finally he could share his passion and love with others across the globe. Amsterdam, Antwerp, Paris and even Valencia all witnessed a DJ performance by Pat B. And everywhere he went there was only 1 mission! Make people dance and enjoy music just like himself!
There isn`t anything better, is there…?
This all resulted in more bookings at clubs and festivals. Reverze, Decibel and Hardbass are just a few of them. But size doesn’t matter… If it`s for a thousand crazy Spanish people or for 1 Belgian who downloaded a Pat B podcast it`s all with the same intention. Enthusiasm and love for music! All the hard work paid off with numerous mix compilations, worldwide releases and recently a contract at sur+ a major label in Jumpstyle music.
After 5 years Pat B still is faithful to his style and has only just begun! You can find him 24 hours a day in the studio and passionate behind the decks on weekends. This only can be described as living a dream.

Johannes Heil
Johannes Heil, born on February 2nd 1978 near the town of Bad Nauheim, is a
German Techno producer and live performer. He took the first steps towards
becoming one of the most prolific producers of the scene at the tender age of 14 in
Heiko Laux's Techno Bistro "Kanzleramt" in Bad Nauheim. Laux recognized the
young artist's potential and took him under his wing.
His new label and its sub-label "U-turn" offered the perfect opportunity to feature
Heil's first productions. His debut single "Die Offenbarung" in 1996 took the scene by
storm. Two years later, he launched his own imprint JH-Records with "Die Eigene
Achse". In the same year, he cemeted his name with his album "Reality to Midi".
Techno experienced a revolution: Hard and menacing beats combined with sweeping
basslines and hypnotic soundscapes defined a sound that was literally unheard of.

globe and is today regarded as one of the all time classics of techno. Johannes, a
regular guest in Frankfurt's legendary night club "Omen" met local legend Sven Väth
there, who valued his productions so much, that he teamed up with him for the all
time classic "Dein Schweiss".
Johannes Heil is a complicated person, both as a person and as a musician. He
doesn't fit in any conventional patterns. His thoughtful character manifests itself in his
music, every album is a reflection of his very soul with musical experiences as
diverse as Techno, Electro, Dub or Ambient. The feelings of his tracks are just as
diverse, ranging from pure dancability to complex musical journeys, dark and
mysterious on one hand, but bright and full of life on the other.
Over the years, Johannes Heil has explored many faces of electronic music and
featured them on his labels Metatron and JH-Records, as well as on other important
labels like Cocoon Recordings, Break New Soil, Klang Elektronic, as well as Len
Faki's label "Figure", which features him regularily since 2013.

attention. Their joint project "LFJH" has brought forth hits such as "Octupuss", "Dirty"
and "Perception" to name just a few of their many tracks played around the globe

productions. His early works have long since become Techno history, his musical
passions remain as strong and vibrant as ever. Blending tradition and progress, past
and future his work is the soundtrack for the now.

Fleddy Melculy DJ Set
66,6 % Metal
33,4 % Old school hip hop
Singer, screamer, producer and Adonis from metalband Fleddy Melculy hits the road as DJ.
He sincerely apologises in advance for hearing damage and other perks.
Not suited for weddings, bar mitswa's or divorces.
Definitely suited for wrecking crews, satanic gatherings and other parties.
DJ Ward
Dj’s are hot stuff nowadays, but few are so versatile like dj Ward. He is known as
Belgium's most talented crossover dj. And there are many magical dj sets to reinforce
that status: Tomorrowland, Versuz V3, I Love the 90’s - The Party,
Studio 54 @ Sports Palace Antwerp, The Hive @ Werchter Festival, Laundry Day,
Summerfestival, Cityparade, Qmusic party tour, … television and radio roadshows,
award shows, clubs, parties, corporate events. No dance floor is too big or too small
for him to handle! Many of his performances are already burned into the collective
memory. So watch out, because his dj sets will glue your feet to the dance floor, all
night long!
It’s all about being creative. Ward developed his own particular way of deejaying. He
gave the concept of an 'eclectic all round dj' a new dimension, he made it into a
unique style form.
Thanks to a wide musical knowledge, he has no problem with adjusting himself to
different kinds of musical genres or audiences. From parties to festivals, from the
popular scene to the alternative scene and even a crossover between the two, Ward’s
trademark is his own particular creative way of mixing different kinds of music in an
endless fluent wave. That’s why people refer to him as a musical chameleon.
Ward always gives it 100%. He has the unique ability to feel every specific need of an
audience, and that’s what makes his dj sets so powerful and extremely uplifting! He’s
constantly searching for that special and crazy connection with the crowd. With
lightning fast turntable-moves, he takes you on a journey you’ve probably never
experienced before. Oh yeah, did you get the chance of catching a glimpse of his very
unique video-animated dj-sets yet!? Thrust us if we say that once you are captured in
his magical web, it’s difficult to get out of!
Bizkit Park
BIZKIT PARK pays tribute to one of the most illustrious sub genres ever to arise in modern alternative
music: NU-METAL
Every classic track that helped shape this mind-blowing era receives the royal treatment in a swirling
and seamless set. Limp Bizkit, Korn, System of a Down, Linkin Park, Slipknot, Papa Roach, Deftones,
Disturbed, .. None are left out of the party.
Despite being underestimated and often bashed by critics, Nu-Metal managed to provide the
soundtrack for an entire generation. In addition, it turned out to be the last stronghold of heavy
guitars in mainstream music. Gut punching riffs, aggressive drums and lots of attitude broadcasted by
radio and TV on a daily basis... It’s a distant memory and hard to imagine these days.
Therefore one might conclude that it’s about time Nu-Metal received a proper salute. Henceforth
Bizkit Park will take this task to heart with staggering enthusiasm and destroy every available stage in
the process.
Franky De Smet-Van Damme started playing records in 2006, but the lead singer of Channel Zero was way ahead of his time and after a year FDVD decided it was just too early for his experimental approach.
Waiting for a better moment, Franky worked on his DJ-skills and now finally the time has come to entertain you with a blend of hard hitting metal and all other different kinds of genres, all aiming to bring an exclusive atmosphere.
Starting off as DJ Metalman, FDVD changed his DJ name to DJ Turbeau, since his style is all but limited to metal, and as a reference to the beer he's released this year, Turbeau Noir.
Let's get this party started!
The Servants
1st of March 1994, Kurt Cobain and Nirvana manage one last show in Munich Germany at Terminal 1. Ironically Terminal 1 was the last stop for Kurt, Krist, Dave and Pat as Nirvana. With Kurt suffering from a Bronchitis symbolically the power went dead during ‘Come as you are’. In retrospect a bad omen for the events to follow in the coming weeks and months. After a brief recess the band picked up where they left off, after 23 songs ending with Heart-Shaped Box.

Three days later the Rome incident, later that month an intervention of family and friends, the escape from the LA-detox clinic, the gunshot… The silence… The Pain… No more… giggly voice with strange humor… razorsharp primal screams… poppy poetics under a veil of melancholy.

Music has always been a part of Mandy's life.
Her father was a DJ so from a very young age she got in contact with music.
When Mandy was seven years old she started listening to jump / tek / Hardstyle. The years flew by, but not the passion for music.
On her 15th Mandy her dream came true, playing for a small audience (Jump / Tekstyle). Slowly her style changed to Hardstyle, and then 'Man-D' was born. In the beginning of her career Mandy played in clubs like: Highstreet, Complex, Cherrymoon, etc.
Through her persistency and passion for music she started to grow in the DJ world.
At the age of 16 years, she was already playing for some major festivals like Daydream Festival, Beachland Festival, The Qontinent, Sunset Festival, etc.
Man-D is now called MANDY.
MAGNETICA is Belgium’s very own Metallica tributeband. Since 2009 they have been
building on their live experience with over 150 (headliner) shows in Belgium and abroad.
What sets them apart from other Metallica tribute bands is their insane drive for perfection.
Hours and hours of tinkering with sounds, instruments and gear has led to a live sound
that is hard to differentiate from the real band. Combine this with 4 energetic individuals
onstage and it is clear why Mission: Metallica is the credo of this band. The audience has
to leave the venue with the same feeling they would get after seeing a Metallica show.
A few lineup changes over the years have only led to a stronger and more action hungry
team that is supported by a solid road crew. This ensures that venues as large as
Metropool (Hengelo), Muziekodroom (Hasselt), De Vorstin (Hilversum) and festivals like
Parkpop (Oostkamp) and xBeach (De Panne) can be certain of a a professional and reliable
Prodigy on a meteoric rise
High energy sets like his performances on Defqon.1, Decibel and The Qontinent? Boundarypushing productions like Kamikaze (+1.3M plays) or new Fuck Shit Up (TBA)? A rock solid international fanbase, unique artistdom? You must be talking about gifted DJ/producer JNXD. With constant support from the scenes’ biggest game changers, millions of streams, doing massive shows from Australia to Amsterdam - with his focus on mainstages, the rollercoaster of mad success he rides is just picking up speed. Don’t blink your eyes, JNXD is on a meteoric rise and not about to come down!
Living life in the fast lane
Rebel rousing his way through the hard dance scene, in just three short years JNXD has become an esteemed act to be reckoned with. Alexander spins at the biggest hardstyle events such as Defqon.1 festival (2015 to 2018), Decibel outdoor festival (2016, 2017), The Qontinent (2018) where he put the pre-party on fire, Mysteryland (2018), Dancevalley (2018) and with Reverze (2019) in sight, all major events get the royal JNXD treatment.
Collecting passport stamps on the go, JNXD also plays international festivals and clubs around the world from Australia's gold coast to clubs in Asia - and that’s just a prelude to what’s coming in 2019. Mixing his sets (and Bacardi) effortlessly, combined with a confident on-stage presence that meets today's high standards plus creating A+ quality productions,
JNXD offers the best of every world. Looks, show element, thrilling productions and a with an exceptionally credible character, he is the number one artist to have on your radar for 2019.
Studio Junkie
Rocking stages is not the only thing Alexander is doing. Working endless hours in the studio has become his second nature. Pushing himself and his creations beyond any normal man’s limits resulted in numerous musical milestones such 'A Broken Dawn', the fan favourite 'Hard Is My Style' (pushing 1M plays), playlist killer 'Kamikaze' (+1.3m plays), 'Back Home' and his latest cinematic banger 'We Are Assassins' get him raving reviews from fans and colleagues
Now, represented by the renowned Platform Agency and world's biggest Hard Dance label Dirty Workz, Alexander is turning a corner with his perfected and slightly harder signature sound. As premiered by Da Tweekaz and Sub Zero Project on Intents this summer, ('Live For Today') and by Sub Zero Project on Mysteryland mainstage 2018 ('Fuck Shit Up' - his new highly anticipated concept) are two perfect examples of the new musical direction JNXD is
Alexander: I want to combine what is deemed impossible. Energy, drive and harder than expected. But always with alot of feeling. No matter how far I push things, my tracks will always contain a deep musical vibe!
JNXD is a creative mastermind who is always looking for new ways to present his music to his dedicated fanbase. After locking himself in the studio for a couple of months, in 2018 he created the never done before release concept called ‘Fortunate? or Forever JNXD?’. In this storyline, Alexander is put to the test by a gypsy fortune teller. She draws four cards. Four tracks must be produced to eventually reveal his true destiny. The release concept showed
what separates JNXD from the masses - he is a true game changer.
As stated in an interview with DJ Mag NL: ' JNXD is making huge progress by doing things just a little different and better than the rest'.
That’s how it started
Making an epic entry into the scene is what characterized Alexander’s early milestones. Creating a first release with an original twist was his main priority. When
‘That’s How It Is’ (2014) was released straight on Scantraxx Recordz, the track made an impact beyond measure for a debut record. Soon, Wildstylez, Noisecontrollers, Bass
Modulators, D-Block & S-Te-Fan and many more supported ‘That’s How It Is’ on Mainstages like Defqon.1 Festival (NL/AUS), Decibel outdoor festival, Qlimax, Mysteryland and Q-BASE (to name a few), and is still doing it's magic. From that release forth, his name as the ‘prodigy newcomer’ spread like wildfire through the scene. So much for a first release right!?
Rumors often spread that JNXD tracks are created by world class artists, because fans found his innovative take on music production so early in a career, hard to believe. However his productions are the result of being a perfectionist who is not easily satisfied - the perfect foundation for multiple decade Hard Dance domination at the highest level of the industry!
With a high energy stage presence, relentless ambition and innovation to bring out the best in his productions, both music wise and as an artist plus his keen eye for knowing what a crowd needs definitely changes the game... JNXD is taking the Hardstyle scene by storm!

Remy-X Live
REMY-X, born and raised in the west of Belgium, started loving electronic music from the age of 12, started experimenting with hard- and software since he was 16 years old. In previous years he loved producing the more harder side of techno at higher tempos like 150-160 bpm and did that mostly for fun, for the love of the music, mostly experimenting at home. Since the last 4-5 years he found his big love for producing straight forward techno and started to produce more music instead of always going to party’s himself.
Now he is always busy making livesets and new tracks. Released on labels like Coincidence Records, Ragnarök Berlin and Darker Sounds. REMY-X always plays live sets with multiple drum machines, samplers and synths. A true hardware lover! His biggest influences are hardware live players like Karenn, Surgeon, Jeff Mills, Aphex Twin, Ansome, AnD, Octave One, SNTS and so on…

Quincy is one of the most thriving ‘retro’ dj’s in Belgium. He’s not only a very successful dj. But also the leading promoter in ‘retro’ events. The most famous one being ‘Age of Love’ which sells out more often than not - even after 9 years of existence. Quincy is also responsible for many other concepts such as The Sound of Belgium, Cherry Moon, Teknoville, Extreme Reunion, History of Trance, … Next to that, he’s one of the driving forces behind the ‘Cirque Magique’ festival which was voted ‘Best Breakthrough Festival’ in 2015 and nominated ‘Best Festival’ in 2016.
Quincy started his career in 1996 as one of the first dj’s and event promoters to introduce progressive house music to the Belgian club scene. This resulted in a residency in the famous Extreme club in Affligem. Shortly after the closing in 2001, Quincy continued his progressive house vibe with the ‘Rebuilding Mondays’ nights at the legendary old Boccaccio in Destelbergen. During many years Quincy kept working on his reputation as innovative house promoter with several concepts, inviting often breakthrough artists at that moment. With Soul Phonic (former duo studio project with Benny Quinart) several releases where signed on labels such as Coincidence Records, Silver Screen and of course his own imprint Punk'id Records where Quincy was responsible for the A&R till 2010.
‘Vinyl only’ DJ Quincy played lots of festivals and legendary clubs & events as Tomorrowland, The Ark, Ostend Beach, Fantasia, Hypo Dream, 10DaysOff, Laundry Day, Feest In Het Park, Kozzmozz, Beats Of Love, Paradise, Café d'Anvers, Fuse, La Rocca, Noxx, ... and also abroad in Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Croatia and Ibiza.
The last decade he worked himself up to thé leading promoter of ‘retro’ events, starting with ‘Age of Love’ together with Nik Vandenberghe from Charlatan. The concept proved so successful that they quickly had to move from Charlatan to Vooruit and now easily fill up 3 rooms of the Artcube venue on their birthdays. The Age of Love events also brought forth two double compilations with remastered versions of all the best retro classics and is now a steady value and host on Belgium’s most famous festival Tomorrowland.
As such he gained the trust of many others and became responsible for big Belgian brands as ‘The Sound of Belgium’ for whom he’s in charge of their club-tours as well as the nights for Studio Brussels first electronic show Teknoville. Also big clubs as Cherry Moon or Extreme trust him to make an extraordinary experience of their revival events. For those he touches down in legendary clubs as Balmoral, Bocca, La Rocca, …
His latest endeavour is his participation in the Cirque Magique festival in Ledegem which sold out in its second year and was hailed by public and press to such an extent that it won and was nominated for best festival twice in the Red Bull Elektropedia Awards.
‘Rhythm is fundamental to the spirit’ has always been Quincy’s motto and that remains the case after more than 20 years in the business!

TorquenT, also known as Jan Billiet, has been interested in music his whole life. This 19 year old DJ started mixing about 3-4 years ago. He didn’t have a particular style though. EDM, house, drum and bass… he did it all. Enjoying the crowd was what he wanted the most. Putting a smile on their faces and create love and peace between them. His love for hardstyle began 2 years ago. He instantly fell in love with it and decided to become a hardstyle DJ. Raw, classics, commercial and maybe even some hardcore, you will be able to find all of this back in his sets. A few years ago, it was only just a dream for him to be able to show his skills to a larger crowd. But now, he has been given a golden opportunity to perform on a larger stage and he is determined to deliver! Let’s go hard together, let’s go hard with style !
DJ Tone claims his spot again on the EARTH stage, and Torhout knows his name best as one of the main men behind Strike, and you know what that means: drums, guitars and lots of grunting going on on this stage!

Celebrating 25 Years of Cyrix
It all started way back in 1994, when the owner of a small local club asked Cyrix to play a few tunes during the club's Summer season. Being grown up in a family where music always had had a front row seat, he didn't hesitate to start what was to become at first a local succesful career, playing every possible club in the city of Torhout and surrounding. The passion for dj'ing was given to him by, at first, his father, who had been disc jockey for some local radios for many years, later on by his brother, who was resident in Torhout's most (in)famous club alongside Olivier Pieters.
When his brother stopped playing, it was time for Cyrix to take over the wheel(s). In a few years he grew from club music to the music he plays today, alongside picking up acid, electro, breakcore and making contacts in almost every subgenre around techno. This way he soon joined Eernegem based RRP (Redux Remix Projects), a partnership between various dj's, including Xplovision and Psychot-X.
The real boost came quite sudden by winning two of Belgium's major dj-contests in the summer of 2003: Cyrix was selected out of 250+ mixtapes to open the first (and only) I love Techno Outdoor festival in Lommel, six weeks after playing at one of the first Young Talent Corners for Kozzmozz in Gent. Appereances on Studio Brussel's Switch followed, numerous parties jumped on the hype created around him and I love Techno even invited him for another set on their 2003 Indoor edition.
The conclusive of a truely explosive year followed at the end of 2003, when Cyrix was voted 'Best New Young Talent' by the readers of PartyGuide, and being featured in the line-up for Young Talent Corner's 'Best of 2003'.
2004 would be the year of the truth: the question on everyone's lips was ofcourse if Cyrix would survive the hype and prove the partypeople his last year was no lucky shot. Bookings came in from almost every major party-organisation in Belgium, including Area 51, Fuel, Decadance, ànd Cyrix' two all-time dreams became true in one night, when Marco Bailey chose him to play alongside his biggest idol Sven Väth, in his favorite club Fuse. Bailey continued his trust in Cyrix by asking him again to play his birthday party in club Silo. Another 2004 highlight followed as Kozzmozz' Matthias asks him to play the official City Parade opening party at Dampoort Station, Gent. Even the readers of Belgium's leading dance magazine Out Soon called out Cyrix as one of the revelations among the Young Talents.
In 2005 Cyrix continues to add new parties and places to his resumé: he continues his residency for Fuel, yearly parties tend to ask him again for their new editions every year and Cyrix performs again on the City Parade, this time playing for hundreds of partyheads on the Kozzmozz-truck.
Summer 2005 tends to create a kind of strange déjà-vu-feeling when ID&T plans to organise Tomorrowland, Belgium's biggest outdoor dance-festival, in Boom Recreationpark. Once again, Cyrix has the opportunity to open the festival, exactly two years after opening that other big outdoor event.
