We’re back in business after a, pretty long, summer break but we’ve got good news for y’all. We’re throwing another party: Tuesday the 19th of October is a date you should all mark in your agendas!

Like we promised on our first flyer we at Swingers Club would provide our parties with local heroes and national superstars. After 2 rather succesful editions that goal is almost (completely) achieved. We invited Belgian stars like Compuphonic, King DJ aka 4T4, Cook-E & Matik and young talents like Liss., Cauchy and Leroy (The latter even became co-host of our parties.)

For our 3th edition we go even further: our headliner is both a local hero and an (inter)national superstar. We’re talking about RAOUL LAMBERT of course! He knows the Rumba-dancefloor better than anyone else, he has an incredible eclectic record collection and he leaves everyone behind in terms of dj-skills. So that is briefly why he is our man for our 3th edition!

Also on the bill are MEN & MACHINES (Two dj’s, radioshow-hosts and party-organizers from Glasgow.) And you can already hear it, these guys breath music! Their parties are held in the heart of Glasgow at Stereo Club. They already played along dj’s as: Optimo, Serge Santiago, Pantha Du Prince and DFA acts like Shit Robot & Gavin Russom. So, we’re really proud to have them on their first visit to Belgium!

The line-up will be completed by our resident crew: KING & COUSIN, LEROY and TIBSON.

KING & COUSIN are the founders of Swingers Club and for this 3th edition they will open the night. They already played at events such as 10 Days Off & Laundry Day and in clubs like Libertine Supersport & Café Capital and their mixes were already broadcasted on Pure FM & Radio Scorpio. They will carefully select some smooth records to get y’all in the mood!

LEROY already played at every Swingers Club party and has become co-host of the party. At the time of our first party Leroy was barely 18 years old, but we saw a lot of potential in this guy! Today it seems that we’re not the only believers, even the people from Studay, a big open-air party in Antwerp acknowledge Leroy‘s good taste and great skills!

TIBSON is the newest Swingers-crew member. This 19 year old is maybe not the most experienced dj on the bill but he compensates that with a big dose of enthusiasm! Tibson is probably the most deep/tech-house oriënted dj of the crew, but his musical universe goes far beyond Detroit and Berlin, as he also likes to dig up some disco grooves from time to time. You’ll catch him behind the turntables in the early hours..

 

 

 Swingers Club #02 will take place on tuesday the 9th of March at Rumba&Co, Leuven!

Visit us on Facebook and fill in the RSVP here!

This is the line-up:

COMPUPHONIC
Maxime, which is Compuphonic’s real name, already released on the biggest labels of the planet: Turbo Recordings (The label of electro-god Tiga), Systematic (Marc Romboy’s Deutsche grundlichkeits record label) and Freerange Records (one of the finest British deep-house imprints).
Nowadays Compuphonic runs his own label: Union Match Music, which saw the daylight in late 2009 and immediately generated big responses by some of the best jocks around; Laurent Garnier, Ken Ishii & Charles Webster.
Max already played at I Love Techno, Dour Festival, Laundry Day and is currently one of the residents of Brussels’ new hotspot Libertine Supersport. He’s style is often described as intelligent and melodious tech-house, but come down to Rumba&Co to discover it yourself!

KING DJ
King DJ is of course the famous Belgian dj 4T4. His numerous projects already took him literally everywhere in the country, from the main stage of Rock Werchter to the dj-booth of Ghent’s Culture Club., but his next stop is at your favorite party in Rumba&Co, Leuven!
King DJ has an excellent comprehension of the dance floor, so he will make you dance, if you want it or not! Good taste, eclecticism and high quality music are his keywords..

KING & COUSIN
King & Cousin are Adriaan and Peter, the organizers and resident dj’s of Swingers Club. Despite their young age they already played at the biggest DJ-festivals (10 Days Off, Laundry Day) and the coolest clubs (Libertine Supersport, Café Capital) of the country. They will take you to a trip of Jackin’ House, Deep Detroitish sounds, fresh electro tunes and nu-disco.

LEROY P. HARDY
Leroy P. Hardy will open the second edition of Swingers Club, we even asked him to join the resident team because we were so impressed by his fresh and unique style. Corneel easily blends fresh new cuts with old school hip-hop, funky classics and dubby 80’s pop. Keep an eye on him, cause this young gentleman is the man of the future!

1. Cosmic Boogie – Feels Good (You Got The Love)

2. Faze Action feat. Yam Who? – In The Light Of A Miracle

3. Ike – Lost 4 Trax EP

4. Luke Abbott – Whitebox Stereo

5. Raoul Lambert – 3 Seconds

libertine_supersport

On 10 october 2009 a new club will be born: Libertine Supersport. It is the new club by Renaud Deru & Lorenzo Serra, the guys behind Dirty Dancing. They’re leaving Mirano to start a fresh new concept at K-Nal (the venue where they already held their Summer Club parties).

The spirit of the new Brussels club is a liberal one, hence the name, anything is possible and everyone is welcome. But the most important aspect of a nightclub (for us) is ofcourse the music! The resident team is divided into 2 categories Libertine & Supersport, the first one is more disco-orientated, the latter is more mainroom house & electro-orientated. The Libertine dj’s maison are: Andy Faisca, Mustang, Dirk (Smile), Guy-Ohm, L-fêtes, Rick Shiver and Rob & Zoopsie, the Supersport resident dj’s are: Compuphonic, Jean Montevideo, Cosy Mozzy, Cook-E & Matik, Kid Strike, Mickey, So’Lex and Wirspielen.

On October the 24th the new club will welcome the Italians Do It Better family: Glass Candy, Desire and Mike Simonetti, so that will be certainly something to look out for! And the week after DFA‘s Shit Robot will perform at Libertine. Other names yet confirmed are: Tensnake & Einmusik (14/11), Still Going & Jacques Renault (21/11), Vincenzo & Renaissance Man (28/11).

The first details about the new club look extremely interesting. A good resident team in combination with a bunch of quality international guests, that’s what we can expect from Libertine Supersport! But Libertine is not the only club in Belgium with an excellent taste of music, the calendar of Spark, the saturday nights at Antwerps finest: Café Capital look absolutely fabulous as well, and certainly for us because we will be playing there 2 times this autumn.

This Saturday, the 19th, Spark welcomes Âme, the week after Michael Reinboth from Compost Records will perform at Capital. And in October they’ll have following guests: Blackjoy on the 3th of October, Mugwump a week after, the 17th of October Boy 8 Bit and last but certainly not least Motor City Drum Ensemble on the 24th!

We (King & Cousin) will do the warming up for Mugwump on the 10th of october and also on the 14th of november for no one less than Dixon, labelhead of  Innervisions!

summerclub_knal

The Summer Club is a new summer concept at K-Nal, Brussels, by the people behind Dirty Dancing and Anarchic. It is a place where you can relax, eat and drink in the evening, and where you can dance after 22h. It will be there whole summer long, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The music will be provided by dj’s like Cosy Mozzy, Compuphonic, Mugwump & Dirk Eskimo. So not the average bar dj’s but a selection of Belgium’s finest.

Tonight there will be a showcase of MVSC which is the new project from Montevideo, a Belgian rock band, and Compuphonic, an electronic producer who already released on labels such as Turbo and Freerange. Go and check them out if you can, they will also perform at Dour Festival and Ten Days Off later on this summer.

To end this post we’ve got again some old school goodies for you, the first is a 70’s synth anthem, the second is a funny Italo-Disco record:
