The first hour will be a talk show and listening session with One Man Party, the three next hours will be dj-sets by Arian Zand, Cheri Moya & Mafi with some talks in between & visuals by the wonderful Benoit Vangeel.

Who's your guest?

The first guest is One Man Party, former Soulwax drummer and killer dj, who will be talking about his favorite non-Western records and music in a Sunday relaxing fashion

Arian Zand is one of our residents and always delivers, he’ll surely do the same this time.

Our next guest is Cheri Moya, a very talented producer from Antwerp who will be playing some unreleased music, tropical stuff and things that inspire him. His new EP is coming out on August 24th and is filled with downtempo goodies.

The last set will be by Mafi, a Brussels based dj we’ve been following for a while and who played a killer moody set on one of our live streams last lockdown.

How will you provide the visual or creative aspect?

Visuals will be provided by the very talented Benoit Vangeel (@benoit_vg) who used an old video game from 1995 called The Mask as an inspiration. The other visuals are part of an old documentary about making masks. Both visuals include the cedar symbol, the official symbol of Lebanon as a tribute to the people of Beirut who are suffering from what happened recently.
