La Force is Ariel Engle, vocalist and latest addition to Canada’s Broken Social Scene... in the sense that she follows nicely in the artistic footprints of the likes of Feist. Even nicer: in September 2018 she was also able to tour with Feist for the first time as La Force. Her witty electro-chansons also turned out to be a revelation and a breath of fresh air in a sold-out AB. By the way, we’re expecting La Force in a smaller setting again.

Together with LeFtO, we call to life a new party concept: NCHTWNKL. We will regularly organise club nights that combine the sharpest live acts of the moment with notable DJs from the Brussels music scene. Niels Broos & Jamie PeetNiels Broos and Jamie Peet are two gifted musicians. Both have their own sound & style and can be counted amongst the most influential musicians of The Netherlands. A few months ago, the duo decided to share a stage. They immediately made an impression at festivals like Mondriaan Jazz festival and Transition Festival. Their music is entirely improvised and sometimes reminds one of Taylor McFerrin and Marcus Gilmore, although the influence of Autechre and Aphex Twin is never far removed. The duo has become the ultimate contemporary sound of the Dutch underground. Kurt BrokenVersatile Brussels DJ Kurt Broken is always looking for new gems, underground classics or unreleased material. He grew up in Paris, where he was raised on hip-hop culture and gained his first experience as DJ. After various mixtapes and live-shows with underground rap artists, he decided to concentrate on his DJ sets, which he takes on very eclectically; from rap to house and from boogie to broken beat.

His powerful, unique vocal sound and catchy electro-pop leave none unmoved. His music is strongly influenced by 80's synth-pop, new wave and hybrid pop.
