The Word Radio x Meakusma Festival with Dj Klakke
DJ Klakke is the alter ego of Johan Loones. Founder of the labels Toothpick (1995-1997) and Kraak (1997-2015). After leaving Kraak he founded Knotwilg Records in 2015. Releases such as Sandoz Lab Technicians (nz), Noel Meek (NZ), Gangalai & Gourabai (B), Weird Dust (B), Kanker Kommando (B) display a diversity in styles which you can find back in his dj-sets. A Dj-set which is a celebration to the abbreviation of “disc jockey”, and that’s exactly what he does… Spinning records disregarding all hypes and trends, just choosing nice tunes. Time and place is everything. Hence his credo “no requests, no refunds”. Could be a party, could be a deep-listening experience, or a mixture of both. No mp3/usb sticks in the sleeves. Mainly vinyl. A style ranging from contemporary classical to sleazy disco, from postpunk to techno, from Wave to field recordings, from obscure dubpunk to psychfolk. Anything goes, enjoy the trip.
Recently included in Resident Advisor’s 10-strong selection of European festivals no to miss, Meakusma – the three day experimental affair nestled in the leafy East Belgian town of Eupen – opens to the public from Friday 6th to Sunday 9th September with a line-up that includes both local stalwarts (Aidons Antoine, Floris Vanhoof, Lieven Martens, Céline Gillain, Sagat, Lawrence Le Doux and our very own Mika Oki to name but a few) and international heavy-hitters (John T Gast, Don’t DJ, Felix Kubin, Lee Gamble, Charlemagne Palestine and Eli Keszler). To celebrate the festival’s unabashed and unparalleled diversity, we’ll be streaming a host of specially-recorded radio shows by the likes of Lamusa II, Don The Tiger, Raz Mesinai and more right here on The Word Radio.VIEW SERIE'S PAGE
