OUR PARTY

Next edition. 23/02/2012 - Special guest ATJAZZ
The previous edition was a lot of fun so we decided to do another one Chez Jacques. A lovely, cosy venue in combination with the always impeccable Soundsystem powered by Funktion-One and a selection of far from obvious music with feeling you can dance to.  Add lots of treats to make our party extra special and you know you’re up for a great night like no other in Brussels. Instead of going fancy the obvious way by inviting foreign DJs who add little to our resident selectors we like to put our efforts into other stuff. In the tradition of David Mancuso’s Loft rather than anything else.  So expect great music on a supreme sounding system, lots of friendly people and a bunch of surprises.

A lot of people have been asking us when the next edition of OUR PARTY is planned. Which means a lot to us as this proves we’ve conquered a place in some people’s hearts. Because we couldn’t go on at our former home we had to search for a new venue and that quest is still going on.* Meanwhile we felt we should do something to fulfil a need both you and us feel. A need to dance to soulful music with a twist, music you can hardly hear anywhere else. In an atmosphere not unlike that at a party at someone’s place, aka a house party as it used to be known before Chicago invented that genre to confuse things.  On December 14th we’ll do just that. A small get together provided of music by our regular crew of DJs (Onda Sonora, Nick Blow, Dieter, Jonathan) in a cosy little basement near the canal, not too far from the city centre, called Chez Jacques.  As the place is far smaller than our previous ones we do urge you to come early so you’ll get in. We will not only provide you with a supreme selection of music but also with a choice of drinks that will match that standard. And a few other bits and bops to make it extra special.  Entrance fee will be a mere 5€ . In the meantime we keep on looking for a new spot where we can go all out and invite guests to join us behind the turntables.

We’ve always done our utter best to prevent nuisance but it came to a situation that made this decision the only reasonable. Not blaming anybody here. Laws have been made to sort out problems such as this and we found ourselves narrowly on the receiving end of it all. We do find it a shame to leave not only a great and well-equipped venue but also a very supportive, helpful and unbelievable sympha crew.

An exclusive mix by Jamie 3:26 on the Laid-Back Mixcloud to announce OUR PARTY with him on April 27th at Bronks in Brussels. A taste of what to expect from this Chicago DJ. Music that will certainly rock our dance floor.

Feel free to bring as many friends as you like.

Last edition before the summer recess.Our first US DJ in a long time, one who goes by the name Jamie 3:26. Somebody who’s keeping that Chicago tradition of great, energetic DJs started by Ron Hardy more than strong. His edits are championed by the likes of, among others, Theo Parrish. Some basic name-dropping just to show you it will be a not-to-miss party. We’ve been wanting to dance to his beats badly for quite a while now and the surest way to fix this was booking him ourselves. Rarely have we met a DJ wanting rock our Funktion One / Bozak / UREI setup so enthusiastly it’s bound to be a very memorable night. 
Our guest will be accompanied behind the decks by residents Jonathan, Nick Blow and Onda Sonora.
Expect the usual high quality sound, fine choice of drinks and lovely people galore. 
Entrance fee is 5€ before midnight, and 7€ afterwards. Feel free to invite your friends. See you on the dance floor.

BIOHailing from the Beverly area on the South Side of Chicago, Jamie 3:26 has garnered recognition in his own right, and poised to unleash a barrage of hot music on the populous, Jamie 3:26 is cast becoming a music phenomenon.Exposure to the DJ culture was inevitability as that he was surrounded by it at home and in his neighborhood. When he was 16, growing up in Chi-Town, he frequently hit the local dance clubs. Eventually he took notice of the DJ’s role.“I then noticed how the DJ was really the one who created the vibe of the party. He had full control of the night, and the party people.”He soon got a break to play a local spot and the rush from commanding the decks inspired him to dabble into Mixing and Re-Mixing, the latter with a boom-box, doing pause mixing tunes he would record off the radio. The creation process of music intrigues him. Whether it is mixing, creating tracks, or remixing, his passion to put tunes together and making new sounds is an innate ability. Instinctively he weaves a fabric of sound that permeates the room and blankets partygoers with lively, soulful spirit. The proof of this is the caliber of talent that continues to reach for him to this day. He has recently released his Basement Edits series on ParteHarty Records label and both issues have since sold out worldwide.Over the years, as his talent expanded, he had several well known residencies including: The Note and Evil Olive, where his brand excelled. Drawing crowds of partiers that he cultivated at previous Chicago hot-spots such as The Basement, The Concrete Jungle and Red No. 5. Nationally he has played at The Shelbourne in South Beach, Florida as well as Sullivan Room in New York City. Most recently he has gone international having made appearances at Djoon in Paris, Salon in Tokyo, and many other clubs worldwide.To Jamie 3:26 music is spiritual and personal.”It’s a way that I can express myself without saying one word. It’s my outlet.”Driven by the desire to allow people to loose themselves on the floor and forget their problems, Jamie keeps his irons in the fire. He always seeks out new and fresh sounds. It could be a song from 30 years ago or a new jam, as long as it has a great groove, he’s interested in it. When he plays, his main goal is to connect with the crowd. He feeds off of their energy. He has the uncanny ability to read a floor and switch the groove without losing them. Directing them to places he wants them to go is what sets him apart from many other DJ’s. His future is with a full production company producing more than just dance hits. He embraces technology, including DAW programs for musical production and soon will be shopping a hot new EP he is working on.- Music has taken me to places in the world I never thought I would see. I have been able to travel and visit many countries and cities. I also have been able to mentally escape from some of the problems I may have been having, due to me being into music. It has literally saved my life.
