Kr!z at TEA Podcast #20

Kr!z' story with electronic music started in 1997. Coming from a strong hip hop background, his dj style is highly technical with cutting, scratching, juggling. This is only one aspect of his energetic dj sets.
The other aspect is a strong sympathy for the more gloomy, dark, rawer sound of techno. Influences from Jeff Mills, Surgeon & James Ruskin defined his musical style and still play a big part in his performances today.  After being one of the most prolific techno dj’s in Belgium for the last decade and being a part of Belgium’s nr 1 techno concept ‘Kozzmozz’, the last years his dj-schedule gets him all over the world, playing gigs in UK, Spain, China, Germany, France…  In 2007, Kr!z felt there was too much good music around from his favorite artists that didn’t get a proper release, so he started up his own label ‘Token’. After releasing tracks by Inigo Kennedy, Phase, James Ruskin, Surgeon & Oscar Mulero amongst others, Kr!z rapidly established the label as a fixed value in the techno scene of today.
