Let us remind you the Bedroom Beats basics:

ENTRANCE: It’s free!

Oh… one more thing: the first edition of the new season is TONIGHT!

See you there at Bonnefooi ce soir.



Onda Sonora plays 25 years VK concerts

June 5, 2014

On June 21st VK CONCERTS celebrates their 25th (!) birthday with a superb line-up, featuring some exciting live acts and DJs like Max Romeo, Puppetmastaz, Stuff., Dorian Concept, Souleance, Kutmah and our very own Onda Sonora. Vaartkapoen (VK) has always been one of Brussels most forward-thinking venues. Needless to say Bart (and Yoeri, although a tad bit younger) was a frequent visitor of VK as from day one. Care to hear stories about dress codes in the early 90s, when going to a Rage Against the Machine gig at VK in 1993 for example? He’ll tell you all about it in a couple of weeks.

Pierre Anckaert & Tom Van Dyck 4-tet present…

October 30, 2013


UNION MATCH! And what a match that is: Tom Van Dyck on sax, Pierre Anckaert
on piano, Hendrik Vanattenhoven on double bass and Mimi Verderame on drums.
Needless to say more, I guess. Except maybe that they present their new album in
the legendary Sounds Club in Ixelles/Elsene on Friday November 1st. If the line-up
and location aren’t convincing (which would be very odd if you ask me), you can find
some audio samples of the new record here. So I’ll be seeing all of you jazz cats at Sounds!


Errorism meets Charles Bradley

October 28, 2013

Ruben (1/2 of Errorism) is an overall nice guy and an excellent producer, you all knew that. But since a year or so he’s also been making reports for Brussels regional station tvbrussel. And he’s doing a great job at that, aiming for perfection as he does alongside Quentin with the Errorism productions and dj sets. Check the interview he did with soul phenomenon Charles Bradley below and judge for yourself. By the way, Quentin and Ruben are also working hard on the release of their first EP. More about that in the weeks to come.

Ruben in a quatre-mains with Chilly Gonzales anyone?

freshly mixed

August 6, 2013

The Future Standards family is very active on the mixing front lately. We Bring You - i.e. Mezzdub & Borealis, you should know that by now – keeps going strong with inviting friends to do podcasts for them on a regular basis. This time it’s MVMNT that got the honor. Music old and new, international and homegrown. Listen, download and find the playlist below.

Onda Sonora are the most active at FSHQ when it comes to presenting new mixes. But they always choose a different mood, a different era, a different vibe. This time they serve a Sraight Up House Mix which features music from a.o. Pepe Bradock, TEREKKE, Phlash, LNR and Photek. And all that got even more mixed up when they added a (whole lot of) Saison Dupont…

And if you didn’t by now (and even if you did), you should certainly also give a listen to the mix Phonetics did for No Fingers On The Grooves. It’s been there since more than a month. But you better believe it’s still fresh as a motherfucker. Check the tourdates section of this blog to catch them live. Oh and on that note, Phonetics is playing back to back with Mezzdub at Future Bass Fridays in Antwerp (Level.01, Zomerfabriek) this weekend. Don’t sleep on that one.

74 Miles Away in 6th gear

May 21, 2013

GEAR CHANGE. It’s there! The much anticipated second album of 74 Miles Away
is released. Gear Change is an 8-track, fully instrumental album which is based on
the band’s live experience. A true musical journey with influences going from
jazz-funk to boogie, all drenched in vintage analogue synths with a 2013 feel.
And it’s a 100% 74 Miles Away product, since it’s a full ‘in-house’ production.
No record label involved but the DIY way, keeping all musical and extra-musical
decisions within the band. The band consisting of, as you should all know by now:
Pierre Anckaert (Fender Rhodes piano, Korg leads & Nord Stage), Louis Van de
Leest (Moog, Wurlitzer piano & synths), Eric Paquet (controllers, sampler & guitar)
and Stefan Bracaval (flutes). Some trustworthy partners are involved in the process
though: LDBK (communication & strategy), Jean Vanesse at Greenhouse Studio
(recording & mixing), Vincent De Bast at Sonar Studios (mastering) and The Pusher
& Fine Tunes (distribution). LeFtO also did a nice promotional mix,
presenting a couple of tracks on Gear Change and some of the band’s influences in
this highly enjoyable 17 minutes teaser.

Here’s some necessary info because obviously you need this album: buy Gear
Change on iTunes or Bandcamp in it’s digital version. The vinyl version will be
available as from June 6th via HHV, Juno or your local record store. That very
same day 74 Miles Away will play an album release show at one of the dopest
venues in town, the Bar du Matin. They’ll bring some records there too, no worries.

I shall say this only once… Buy buy buy! And book book book!
It. Does. Not. Get. Any. Better. Than. This.
