True Zebra is Kevin Strauwen.
A composer for the dark backbone of the soul.
Creator & disintegrator of sound & vision.
Conceived as rock but mistaken with electronic tries and techniques. Transmuting an edgy alternative view into the electronic rock and dance scene with tight-grooves, industrial-esque rhythms and spookish melodies with a nerve.
Moving at the intersection of LCD Soundsystem, Depeche Mode, Röyksopp and Front 242.
20:00 Simi Nah

Simi Nah herself : (French musician, songwriter & vocalist from Nice (FR), originally bass player with bands like Coma, Praga Khan since 1998, played on the biggest festivals and venues in Belgium & Europe.

Safyée : Keyboard player, and vocalist, but also daughter of Micky Mike AKA Snowy Red, classic Electro New Beat project from the 80's.
“On stage, Simi Nah presents a very wide spectrum of music styles: you think about Absolute Body Control, Kraftwerk, Gainsbourg, Mylène Farmer, Miss Kittin', Vive la Fête but also more darkwave-EBM bands like DAF, with an impressive video show.” Peek-a-Boo Magazine.

23.07 - Seirom (Curated by Consouling Store)
24.07 - Ashtoreth (Curated by Consouling Store)
25.07 - Filip Gheysen & Köhn (Curated by Silken Tofu)
Köhn is the moniker of Jürgen De Blonde. Köhn was born sometime in 1997, as opposed to Jürgen who was born sometime in 1975. Köhn is all about electronic music, improvisation, composing on multitrack or computer and lots of playing. Köhn likes to play with sound and language, with styles and references, with other musicians who can listen and like to play themselves. Köhn is a live performer as well as a knob twiddler and a mouse clicker. Köhn plays synthesizer, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, voice, sampler, computer, software, words and other sound sources that come in handy.
Köhn makes music & sounds for his own interest, for contemporary dance, for (short) films, for games, for you, for installations, for records and for live performing.
Filip Gheysen (°1979) is a musician and audio artist, living and working in Ghent, Belgium, with a passion for sound and experimental music. Using only a tabletop guitar, effects and the occasional autoharp, he creates abstract droning soundscapes, stripped of all unnecessary elements, focussing solely on the timbre and tone of his instrument.
Filip Gheysen has been very active in different projects. He is the founder of Glasvocht records and has released albums under the monikers Picturesque, Teledroom (with Portables-guitarist Wio) and is a member of the band 4 Black Boxes (with Jürgen De Blonde aka Köhn and Tom Vangheluwe). Trained as a graphic designer, he has also studied ‘printmaking’ at the academy of Ghent and had several expositions.
In June 2013, he released his latest album Tabletop Guitar on Silken Tofu. This first release under his own name presents both his musical and visual art and adds a third field of interest. His videoworks are the culmination of his two main outlets, giving a new dimension to his art.
26.07 - Lizard Smile & Sol 19 (Curated by Wool-E Shop)
SOL19 is a collection of musical recordings, sprouted from the mind of ka(oz), it carries a suitcase of (love)songs from along the way.
Starting together with Rat-Project from 1986, SOL19 has been influenced mainly by bands like Joy Division, New Order, The Cure, The Sisters of Mercy, Front242, Dead Can Dance, and from there, so many others. From 80's newwave and electro, through 90's trance, ambient, psychedelic, over hiphop, space and classic. All these styles can often be found into one song, but in such manner that gives SOL19 its typical sound. Over more than two decades, twelve albums were composed, however, unpublished. In the future, they will become playable online.
From 2007, Roefke joined to play the bass, trying to pull SOL19 out of the cave and get it playing live. As before, Rat-Project plays the synths, while ka is singing.
20:00 lizard Smile
Lizard Smile are a three-piece band from Antwerp, Belgium, comprising Beatnick (vocals and programming), Strobo (guitars) and Albi (bass)
Influenced by Sisters Of Mercy, Mission and above all Fields Of The Nephilim.
