About

Kwak grew up to the sounds of Miles Davis, Tito Puente, Funkadelic, the Beatles and their peers thanks to his music-loving parents. His first musical ‘shock’, so to speak, came when he discovered Sugarhill’s gang rap and Motörhead’s hard rock.

He began his career deejaying for students in the late eighties whilst rehearsing as lead singer for garage punk bands. In 1994, he began organizing parties and concerts and soon became the resident Dj and programmer at the Kafe Kan’h (1999-2004). In 2002, together with Dj Eleven, he launched Strictly Niceness, a monthly party which has since became one the most popular groove events in Brussels.

Behind the turntables, Kwak offers a breadth of styles that reflect the richness of groove across cultures and history. The listener travels between continents where the music is warm and swings. From hip-hop to reggae, soul to disco, funk, salsa and afrobeat, house, dubstep or even UK garage music. The musical odyssey will bring you where the classics meet the uncharted, where new productions meet old, assuredly provoking itchy dancing feet and happy smiles all round.

Kwak has shared the mixing desk with internationally renowned deejays such as Quantic, Florian Keller, Dimitri From Paris, Benji B, Floating Points, Theo Parrish, Rich Medina, Lefto, Dj Format, Gilles Peterson, Dj Nu-Mark, Dj Suspect and many more, be it at a Strictly Niceness party, or during one of his many bookings in Belgium and abroad.

His other occupations include a radio show, “Back to Niceness,” which he has hosted every week for the past 10 years on Bruzz (Ex Fm Brussel), and writing a column for a Belgian magazine (Focus Vif).
The next step remains to be written.
