Chacha (aka Public Relation) is our resident dj. Well known in Brussels, he performed in the most famous Belgian clubs during the 80′s: the legendary Theatro, the Fifty-Five or the Vizio. New wave and 80′s music have no secret for him. He will make you dance whether you want or not!

DJ Zanni grew up in a biker’s bar, so alternative music styles were his natural habitat since childhood. Beside the obligated hard rock and metal from the biker scene, it was the heave bass, tight rhythm, and depressive minor chords from the new wave in the early eighties, that would never let him go. Put his first dj steps, medio eighties, in the electronic scene, where EBM, Italo-disco, new wave, were pitched to the correct BPM in order to create the atmosphere of what would become new-beat. After the summer of 88 (known as the second summer of love), this scene was flooded by techno from Detroit and House from Chicago. For DJ Zanni the fun was over so he decided to return to his hometown and became the resident-dj of the local youth club for more than 7 years. He also was an appreciated guest-dj of the parties in the famous Zwette Zoal in Moorsel (Aalst). The nineties gothic scene was not his cup of tea, and late eighties, early nineties, only playing new wave was obsolete in that time period. So the new wave became accompanied by grunge, indie, surf, 60’s garage and psychedelica, in his sets. Medio nineties he retired from deejaying. But ten years later he decided to return and founded the organization New Wave Party Aalst. One year later he became resident-dj of New Wave Classix in Vooruit, Ghent, Une Nuit a la Mode (Depeche Mode tribute parties) and Seawave. He played sets for almost every organization in Belgium (Beati Mortui, New Wave Fuif Aarschot, Avantgarde Sint-Niklaas, Dante’s Club, Duister Gefluister, Spik and Span, Acceptable in the 80’s, …). Became one of the most appreciated dj’s during the new wave revival.

Hatecraft is a concert and party promoter since 1986. In the early 80′s he fell in love with New Order’s music and soon discovered their former project Joy Division and all the post-punk scene. Although he opened his mind to electronic, pop, industrial, gothic and noisy pop music, the 78-84 period remains his favorite one.
