Bonzai all stars
DJ-ing duo Bonzai All Stars have a mission, that mission is to blow your mind with exciting high octane sets that delve into everything retro. As their stage name suggests these guys are always the ‘stars’ of the show and they really know how to put on a show. With decades of experience in the music industry through writing, arranging, producing, DJ-ing and running multiple successful labels, it’s little wonder that they are being snapped up for huge parties and festivals across Europe to unleash their energetic sets complete with on-stage antics.
Over the last number of years they have raised their profile to a massive scale. The original concept was to produce mega mix CD’s filled to the brim with Bonzai’s classic retro tunes, but this blossomed into a full on live DJ performance with both guys putting in the work to make it happen. To date they have performed at some of the biggest festivals in Belgium including hosting their own Bonzai stage at Tomorrowland as well as spots at Laundry Day, Summer Festival & Legacy Festival.
On top of all that the annual Bonzai Retro parties are where they round up their hectic yearly schedule with a massive blow out among their many friends. No doubt we will be seeing many more dates lined up so keep an eye on the Bonzai All Stars website for more.
There can be no doubt about the work ethic from the Bonzai All Stars, they know how to whip up the crowd and put on a show, it would be rude not to have them at your party.

TLP aka Troubleman
Brutal honesty: generally it’s not a trait used to describe the skills of a DJ. But in the case of Belgium born TLP aka Troubleman, there’s no way around it. Brutal honesty is at the core of everything he does, which adds up to much more than spinning tunes. Among the many titles on his lengthy resume are rapper/freestyle MC, music writer, hip-hop spokesman, recording artist and radio host. With more than two decades of field experience under his belt, TLP is a musical force to be reckoned with. An unstoppable, musical phenomenon with a notorious rep stretching far beyond his native ground – just ask him, he’ll tell you!
In 1987 mister Troubleman had his first taste of the stage with Kick The Bass, a posse of rappers, breakdancers and graffiti artists that also featured a certain female MC by the name of Ya Kid K, before she became part of the worldwide success story of Technotronic. In his own right, TLP broke ground when he sided with DJ Grazhoppa to form Rhyme Cut Core, one of Belgium’s first hip-hop acts to be signed in the UK. Many years before that, when London was celebrating Nelson Mandela’s freedom, TLP had his first encounter with a Jamaican soundsystem. Its sheer physical power made an everlasting impression on the aspiring MC. Partying all night on the urban sounds of Soul II Soul, Afrika Bambaata, Stetsasonic and The Jungle Brothers, young T found his future and was never again to lose his taste for big, bad bass lines and improvised shout-outs! For the record: let’s not forget this was a time before House of Pain taught the world that white men could jump and Eminem became a superstar. White skinned hip-hop ambassadors were met with great prejudice, a thing that TLP continued to battle for the larger part of his career.
Over the years and countless projects later, TLP’s focus started to shift towards the turntables. His natural knack for word play and crowd control became a great asset when manning the wheels of steel. Partnered with an enormous love and knowledge of music, TLP quickly made name as a DJ with his own unique definition of mixing and selecting. When some local entrepreneurs took night life in Ghent to another level, invading museums, showrooms and abandoned warehouses with celebrated nights as Bel.Mondo and Eskimo, they enlisted the Troubleman to host their hip-hop and R&B themed rooms. When those same party moguls opened up Culture Club, they put TLP in charge of his own floor. He took up a weekly residency and for the first years, next to fellow Ghent locals The Glimmers and 2manydjs, was vital in helping build the club its acclaimed reputation. It was here at Culture Club that TLP’s infamous all night marathon sets (8 to 9 hours are no exception) started to build momentum. This is a man who rides the rhythm as it rolls out; treating his followers to a healthy mash-up of soul, r’n’b, roots reggae, disco, funk, deep and latin house classics, dubstep, afrobeat, booty bass and so on… A true champion of the dance floor, TLP is and always will be last man standing!
Compiling and mixing five volumes of Culture Club compilations took the devoted party goliath to new frontiers, rocking floors in the many exclusive locations such as Club Yellow (Tokyo), Lux (Lisbon), Jimmy Woo (Amsterdam), Cookies (Berlin) and Respect Is Burning (Paris). On several occasions, he set fire to the Miami Winter Music Conference, caused mayhem on countless festivals such as Tomorrow Land and Dour, and supported artists such as Erykah Badu,…………
Sometimes his big mouth gets him into trouble (they don’t call him Troubleman for nothing..), but TLP’s verbal capacities are also appreciated by his peers, such as Flemish hip-hop troupe ‘t Hof Van Commerce, who enlisted him for some guest rhymes on tracks as Tottentrekkerie – in return, their chieftain Flip Kowlier crowned TLP ‘the porn king of Ghent’. Also, together with Raoul Belmans from Swirl People, TLP collaborated on the steaming hip-house track Watcha Gonna Do.
After more than 20 years of pumping the volume for the larger part of the week, TLP still is a tireless advocate for the music. Refusing to compromise, pouring his heart and soul into it. Maybe the biggest recognition of his devotion to the good cause is his self-named national radio show on Studio Brussel. Every Saturday evening TLP spreads his love for urban sounds from around the globe over the Belgian airwaves. Telling it like it is, with brutal honesty.
RHEA
Over the past five years RHEA has proved that rock ’n roll is alive and well. Hard-yet smooth guitar riffs and intricate-yet-loud songs have become the trademark of the five. And equally important: they know how to translate their craftsmanship into hard hitting and intense live shows. In 2019 they played support slots for Wolfmother and Royal Blood and did a bunch of headline shows and festivals. their debut album was released in 2020 after which they had a number 1 hit in Studio Brussel's 'De Afrekening ' with 'Rather Be Nothing'. At the end of 2021, the band played a show in a sold-out AB Box that fans will remember for a long time to come.
Q-IC
Q-ic, also known as Luc Byltiauw, started his career as a sound engineer at the age of 15. Driven by his passion for audio, the path to electronic dance music was a natural way to follow. His engineering talent didn’t go unnoticed and his innovating new sound was welcomed by major labels such as Virgin and Universal Music. Since 2003, other releases under various alter ego’s followed rapidly and Q-ic smashed the charts worldwide with productions on renowned labels such as Polydor, N.E.W.S., Panda Funk, Ghoststyle, Zoo Records, Babaorum... This resulted in a boost with approx. 200 gigs a year and in co-productions with artists such as Coone, DJ Ghost, DJ Bam Bam, CJ Bolland, Marco Remus, Lethal MG, Ronald-V, … only to new a few. Q-ic claimed his place in the harddance scene.
Hit tracks like Desire Go Higher, Punk Shock, Musique, X-Rated Love, Approaching, I Found You, Fortunate Beats, 24, All Night, … became all time classics and Q-ic’s energetic bootlegs have been picked up far across the borders.
With performances all over Europe and guest appearances at several of the biggest festivals out there such as Tomorrowland, Reverze, Nature One, Love Parade, City Parade, Defqon1, I Love Techno, In Qontrol, Decibel Outdoor, Summerfestival, …
Q-ic knows how to entertain mass crowds!
After 7 years of residencies at the legendary clubs Complex & Cherrymoon, Q-ic is now concentrating on retro dj sets.
Behind the decks, Q-ic never fails to deliver and he is set to bring a mind-blowing performance at each and every gig!
Those meeting him on the dancefloor can expect one big energetic ride of highlight moments, exclusive bootlegs and most of all… the best of jump, tek and techno music.
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 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.
Pablo Honey
Een tributeproject, maar dan wel eentje voorzien van een stevig paar ballen én met een ‘larger than life’-attitude. Hier droomden Jan en Jason - beiden actief bij de Belgische metalformatie King Hiss - al even van om hun muzikale horizonten te verruimen. Beide heren delen een gemeenschappelijke liefde voor potige gitaarmuziek en al snel kwamen ze tot de vaststelling dat de jaren negentig een karrenvracht epische bands en platen baarden. Niet toevallig de muziek die hun tienerjaren kleurde. Hun aandacht ging in het bijzonder uit naar de grungeperiode waarin bands zoals Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana en Soundgarden de plak zwaaiden. Het duo wist met hun enthousiasme geen blijf en de spreekwoordelijke gaspedaal werd al snel tegen de vloer gestampt.

Omdat een band starten met uitsluitend een zanger en een drummer net iets té ambitieus is, gingen ze op zoek naar 2 bijkomende partners in crime. Al snel kwamen ze terecht bij 2 jonge wolven: Hanne Vandekerckhove (Noedels, Aarde Aan Daan, Umm, …) en Guillaume Lamont (Rhea). Beide verdienden ze reeds hun strepen bij een rits verschillende projecten. En niet geheel onbelangrijk: ze herleiden de gemiddelde leeftijd van de band naar een meer aanvaardbaar niveau.

De mayonaise pakt en er wordt naarstig getimmerd aan een bom van een liveset. Het quartet mikt erop om het unieke festivalgevoel van de jaren negentig nieuw leven in te blazen. Hoewel ze trouw willen blijven aan de songs en de sound, zijn ze vastbesloten om zich de show toe te eigenen. Het is niet hun bedoeling om zomaar even de les op te zeggen. Haal je combats en flanellen houthakkershemd uit de kast en laat je uit je sokken blazen!
Niels van Gogh

Niels' single "House Arrest" became the soundtrack for the Chio Chips advertisement. His remix for Delirium feat. Sarah McLachlan - "Silence" was not only an immediate number one hit of the European Club Charts but also on Beatport, the world's biggest Download portal. As a result in 2009 he received the Beatport "Best Progresseive House Track" Award.

In the same year Niels signed with Scream & Shout Recordings. His first single released on this label, "Dreamer", stayed in the Top 10 of club charts for weeks. Other cooperations with Ramon Zenker (aka Emilio Verdez), and Daniel Strauss followed. Niels released many new tracks on international labels like Spinnin', Cr2, Hed Kandi, Hotfingers and of course Scream & Shout and did remixes for Tom Novy, Milk & Sugar, Lissat & Voltaxx, Plastik Funk, Tune Brothers, Schiller, Tomcraft and many other artists.

David Guetta, Roger Sanchez, Joachim Garraud, DJ Antoine and Jesse Voorn. But despite his international success, Niels is still attached to his home town and he decided to shoot the video for "Emergency" in a club in Augsburg.

But, MANDY's popularity is not only measured in likes, views and streams - she has an instant connection with her fans when she is on (and off) stage. Always willing to give her fans love, attention, and an autograph, make MANDY the most fan favorite Hardstyle act of this the moment.
Working with a dedicated team and signed to leading Hardstyle label Dirty Workz helped her reach some amazing early musical milestones. One of her biggest accomplishments to date is the official remix of Tiesto's 'Jackie Chan'. With +6M plays, and counting, this playlist killer is the most popular remix of the pack! Another early milestone has been the release of 'Raggadrop' (2017). Reaching over 17M views on YouTube and +3M streams on Spotify this bomb is all about her signature sound: energy and steamrolling kicks!
Pushing the pedal to the metal, in the summer of 2019, her bootleg 'Don't You Worry Child' by legendary Swedish House Mafia was the closing track of the Tomorrowland Mainstage in both weekend one and two. Dutch, Belgium and international press quickly picked up the news putting MANDY in an instant limelight.
Yet, there is so much more to come. Behind the scenes MANDY is working harder than ever to show the Hard Dance community she is not nearly done spreading her positive vibes and fist pumping beats all over the world. In fact, she has just begun.

Dark-E
ven though I wonder if anyone really IS interested in my BIOGRAPHY , I'll try my best to keep it short and to throw a glance at the future!

Music has always fascinated me, from Rock, Pop and Blues to every possible electronical style of music on this planet. As a youngster I always had the chance to listen to everything that was placed in my path. From a distance I could hear the music my father was listening to and which I didn't take for granted at that time because of teenage issues, but learnt to appreciate over time! And just like the way every single person has his or her favorite songs, so do I. Songs which remind me of times ofhappiness , pain, melancholy, rancune and so on...

To every human, every music lover, every DJ and every producer music has a slightly different place in the soul but it IS and will always BE my cause to create music that touches other people and myself. I won't limit myself to one single thing, but I am to take everything that's placed in my path.

The artist's power is hidden in his openness and curiousity for each new excitement.

It's my cause to do this as good as I can, at the regret of anyone that doesn't appreciate it.

Respect!

Belgian Quo Band
The BQB story started in the summer of 2004, shortly after Status Quo’s performance at the Schwung-festival in Roeselare. The rig that Frank Vandaele played with as a twenty-something was set up shortly after that particular concert and son Erwin Vandaele resolutely began self-studying the endless Quo set. By the end of 2007, he was ready for more. Seeing play makes play, and so Frank had clearly got the urge to play again: they decided to start a new tribute band together.
First performance Belgian Quo Band
They searched the internet for a suitable drummer and bass player. In the meantime, they rehearsed almost every day throughout the summer and after these intensive rehearsals they finished the summer at an acceptable level. In October, they came into contact with some musicians, including bassist Lieven. Collective rehearsals started in December, and in 2008 we did our first try-outs in Hertsberge and Maarkedal.
In 2009, the programme mainly included some birthday concerts, an aperitif concert and a TV appearance on AVS.
In 2010, it looked as if – apart from a few small concerts – we would have a rather quiet concert year. Then we decided to change the concept of the band…
In the early years 2008-2010 there was no real tribute band. During performances, only Status Quo songs were played, but we wanted to grow into a real tribute band: let the audience experience the full Quo show!
From 2010 onwards, we worked hard on this new concept and many visual changes were made.
We took into account the Status Quo trademarks: the green and white Fender Telecasters, the white trainers, Rossi’s white shirt and overcoat, the correct positions on the stage, the right choreography and even Rossi’s “mug shot” in order to approach Status Quo as closely as possible.
This new concept clearly caught on in 2011 with concerts at all kinds of events.
In November, our first DVD “The Legends Concert” was released. We were also guests for a film shoot, and as icing on the cake we were opener of the Tribute Festival in the Brielpoort in Deinze in December.
In 2012, we continued the excellent line-up of 2011. Quite a few shows were planned and gradually BQB also started to draw the attention of our northern neighbours. In the spring, we crossed the border into the Netherlands three times and were ready for the autumn.
In 2013 we worked hard to raise the band’s profile, especially in the form of press articles and interviews on local radio stations all over Flanders.
With concerts at the AB Bierfeesten in Oudenaarde, the Gentse Feesten on the Sint-Baafsplein, Tribute Festivals, a long list of summer concerts from the sea to Limburg and some big concerts in Germany and the Netherlands, we have definitely put ourselves on the map in 2013.
As a bonus, we worked hard in the autumn of 2013 on Status Quo’s trademark: the famous white Marshall wall was added as the last missing element to our show.
With this last adjustment, we stood there in 2014 as a full-fledged Tribute Band. The tight Quo rhythm, the same guitars, backline, clothing, stage set-up and choreography, but especially creating the same atmosphere as at a real Quo show are our trademarks.
All these things have contributed to the great success of 2014. BQB was a guest at countless festivals and events from January to December such as Parkpop Oostkamp, Genk On Stage, Festival aan Zee, Swinging Hulsen, Dessel swingt, Tribute Festivals all over Belgium and the Netherlands, Stroppenconcerten Halle, Brouwerijfeesten Oudenaarde, Weerdse Bierfeesten, …
We also contributed to several charities and tried to break the world record for air guitar on 26 July during the Gentse Feesten on the Sint-Baafsplein. Click here to see an image of the world record attempt >
As icing on the cake, we were guests in Dautphe (Germany) on 10/08 to replace Status Quo themselves during Rockin’ Hinterland Dautphe. This because of a sick Rick Parfitt. Especially these last two events did not go unnoticed by the press and thus BQB was in 2014 also a guest at Marcel Vanthilt’s Hotel M op één, the VTM news and the AVS news.
Furthermore, there were interviews on dozens of radio stations, including national stations JoeFM, Q-Music and Studio Brussel and dozens of articles were published in national newspapers (see page PRESS). On 21/09 BQB was also a guest at JoeFM after Status Quo’s concert that evening for the “Top 2000” in the Lotto Arena.
ord attempt last year at the Gentse Feesten – Sint-Baafs, we wanted to do something special again in 2015. The highlight of the year is therefore undoubtedly our successful ROCK TIL’ YOU DROP tour on 12/09 with which we once again made it to the press and national radio stations such as MNM, Radio 2, JoeFM, STUBRU and regional TV (RINGTV) in abundance (see PRESS ).
Rock till you drop
In 1991 Status Quo succeeded in playing 4 full concerts in less than 12 hours at 4 different locations in England. We repeated this stunt successfully in Flanders. We played a full show in Olen, Nieuwenrode, Snaaskerke and Schuiferskapelle each time and all this in less than 12 hours. To make this possible, we could count on very special transport and a fantastic crew. You can read all about it on our facebook page and watch the RTYD aftermovie here. Status Quo also found out about this stunt and so we were able to arrange a real meet and greet between both bands. They wanted to meet those “crazy Belgians”, because no tribute had gone this far in “imitating” them.
Also in 2016 the train was unstoppable and the success kept growing, at the end of the year we were even in Mali (Africa) on stage for a European military mission!
We stayed there for a few days at the military base and gave a performance on New Year’s Eve for all the soldiers present. A once-in-a-lifetime experience!
We celebrated our 10th anniversary with lots of gigs, in July and August alone we had 18 gigs! We were at the Rockin’ Hinterland Festival in Dautphe (Germany) for the third time, where we once replaced Status Quo. Being asked back is the best compliment a band can get, so in 2017 we were in Assendelft for the 6th (!!!) time. In Deurne (NL) we were at the Walhalla Zomerfestival in 2014, but were now asked back as headliner. Furthermore, there were really top performances at the Paulusfeesten in Ostend and Yesterdayland in Bobbejaanland. To make everything extra festive, we also brewed our own beer that year, what do I say? 2 beers! Also following the example of Status Quo of course, because they also have their own beer.
In 2018, we took a year of rest, because the past 10 years had been very intense.
The line-up was also adjusted, as Erwin had other goals in life and could no longer combine the heavy schedule with work and private life.
Frank also decided to quit, so we ended up working with Geert “Parfitt” Callens and Rik “Rossi” Michels.
When we announced the restart of the band, there was great media interest and we did no less than XXXX radio interviews in one weekend.
At the end of the year, the band played 2 gigs in England and was followed by a group of Belgian fans, talk about “loyal followers”!
With our new Rossi & Parfitt we can go on for many years, even Corona could not stop us in 2020 and 2021!
Belgian Quo Band is a well-oiled machine that always creates an ambiance. Both in front of, but certainly also on stage.

5napback
Lekkere schijven, een resem hits, zijn eigen festival, een vette pet én de beste DJ-familie van Vlaanderen: 5NAPBACK heeft het allemaal!
5NAPBACK (uitgesproken als Snapback en 5nappie voor de vrienden) kan zijn naam al achter tal van shows zetten. Sinds het winnen van België’s grootste dj-contest “MNM Start to DJ!” in 2016 gaat het ontzettend hard voor deze 25-jarige Duffelaar met zijn eigen festival.
Een typische 5NAPBACK set is een mix van de lekkerste commerciële schijven, ongelooflijke ‘alles kapot’ platen en enkele legendarische hits die niet kapot te krijgen zijn.
In een jaar met veel minder gigs bracht hij 2 nieuwe singles uit: eerst ‘Vrienden’ (meer dan 1 miljoen streams), een samenwerking met rapper Daniel Busser en in oktober ‘Hoe kon ik zo dom zijn’,een co-lab met Metejoor! De bijhorende videoclip werd al meer dan 160.000 keer bekeken op Youtube. Beluister zeker zijn andere hits ‘Feels Like Love’ Deep Waters, Do You Better, Rain On Me & Waste My Time.
Alles samen goed voor zo’n 3.355.000 streams op Spotify!
Ondertussen stak hij ook zijn schouders onder een nieuw project ‘De Bromeo’s‘, een meer dan gekke DJ-set met co-DJ’s Lester Williams en Freaquency!
Michael Amani
When Michael Amani released his debut single ‘Feels Like I Do’ (1,5 million streams) back in 2018, he was the first Belgian DJ to ever release on the label of Martin Garrix. A little while later, Michael Amani played the opening act for Garrix himself at his Ushua za residency in Ibiza. After crushing Afrojack’s Tomorrowland stage, he got to play various major festivals and clubs around the world such as Balaton (Hungary), Shalvata (Tel Aviv), Route Du Soleil (Spain) and ofcourse, almost every big Belgian festival such as Sunrise, Rock Werchter... followed.
Late 2019, Michael Amani released his long awaited festival banger “Shifting Gears” on STMPD RCRDS, making him the only Belgian artist to ever have released twice on the label.
Supported by Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, Lost Frequencies, Sam Feldt and many, many more.
During 2020, Michael Amani proved to be the creative and innovative artist that he is. After the succes of his Youtube vlogs and Among Us series, he then managed to collect a whopping 15 million+ views on Tiktok.
Fully recharged and with his backpack filled with brand new music, it’s safe to say Michael Amani is ready to continue killing the game in 2022.
Meaghan
Al van jongs af aan is de multi getalenteerde Meaghan gebeten door alles wat met muziek te maken heeft. Zo is ze een danseres, zangeres en DJ. De ideale combo dus voor een knallende DJ-set.
Haar muziekstijl werd beïnvloed door haar vader en in een paar jaar tijd heeft Meaghan haar eigen unieke house / tech house vibe ontwikkeld. Dit alles staat synoniem voor passie en haar sterke persoonlijkheid.
Meaghan stond al te schitteren in de fijnste clubs van België en Nederland, waaronder The Villa en Carré.

Bolle
Yves Foré, aka dj-bolle was born in Roeselaere in the summer of 69. After playing football untill my 16th birthday, I began to be very interested in new-wave and dance-music. On my 18th birthday I bought myself 2 turn-tables and a mixer, one year later I began spinning the decks, in "the Step in" Roeselaere.
After a few years, I took the big step to a big discotheque, "Eros" also in Roeselaere. From then on, it went all very fast. Trough Ferarri's, Megadrome Dyore and Diwi's, I became resident in Lagoa, where I playing on the famous Sunday-afternoons together with dj Olivier c. There we had 3 supreme years.
After a break of 4 years, Marie-jeanne, the boss of Lagoa, came to get me back to play together with dj Manu (kenton) in Room 2 of Lagoa. Room 2 is now know as Ground-zero, where I spin the decks till 2010. I was al so resident with dj-hs in the main-room and working by the management for lagoa till 2013.

Bassbrain
From a young age Glenn Brughmans aka Bassbrain was interested in music and entertainment. Besides getting music theory and guitar lessons at the age of 12, he also started his own youtube channel where he made funny action movies with friends. Glenn became locally famous with his videos.

It wasn’t until the age of 18 that Glenn discovered how to make electronic music. Glenn started producing songs with dutch lyrics about beer and partying. Some of those songs became quiet popular and had hundreds of thousands of online streams.

Since Glenn’s recurring appearance on Da Tweekaz’s “Tweeka-TV”, the name Bassbrain skyrocketed throughout the hardstyle scene. With a switch to English lyrics and a more international sound, Bassbrain is taking the scene by storm.

Already supported by heavyweights as Da Tweekaz, Coone, Timmy Trumpet, Darren Styles,… this dj and producer is ready to take over the world with his super energetic performances and funny yet bass-heavy music!
