MEET THE ARTIST: AliA

Describe what you do in one paragraph

Driven by an intense love for electronic music in all its shapes AliA is without a doubt one of the most promising deejays of Belgium. Being only 20 years old she has a surprisingly thorough knowledge of club music and a mixing technique many envy. At this point in her early career AliA is already heavily supported by selectors Mr. Scruff, Carista and Lefto. She’s a resident at Belgium’s finest HORST Festival and a regular at the infamous C12 club in Brussels. Her past gigs include festivals like Worldwide Festival (Leysin, CH), Dimensions (Pula, HR), Lowlands (Biddinghuizen, NL), Listen! Festival (Brussels, BE) and many more…

What are you planning to do during your takeover?

I’m inviting some of my favorite guests and will let the music do the talking. :-)

-

Who are your guests?

- Kreshik (DJ & programmer at Bonnefooi Brussels) He’s known for an insane selection of Broken Beat, Jazz, Hip-hop, Boogie, Funk, .... I think he deserves a lot more credit than what he gets in Belgium. He regularly travels the world to play small gigs at quality venues.

- Mambele (A Brussels based Hero who already produced for Zwangere Guy & is one of my favourite DJ's in Belgium). He's very good at combining old & new stuff. There’s so much funk & soul in what he does.)

- Moses (Gent bases DJ & Producer with a focus on Jungle, Footwork, 2step, Garage, ... I really want to push him to play more, he's so talented, I hope Radio Ruit can be the beginning of a career for him. ;)))

-

What's the full line-up?

For now I was thinking of this:

14:00-15:00 AliA

15:00-16:00 Mambele

16:00-17:00 Kreshik

17:00-18:00 Moses

How will you provide the visual or creative aspect?

Jacob Schoolmeesters will provide visuals for my takeover. He’s currently studying media art at kask ghent and likes to experiment with film.
