Another belgian DJ guest - this time it's Kolombo. An overall nice guy with a long track record in electronic music introduced to DR via the one and only Pat Lezizmo.

The mix is a little harder than usually found here, but as Pat put it "It rocks true Belgian style!". A litte about the man behind the mix is in order...

Kolombo bio

Olivier Grégoire aka Kolombo hails from the city of Namur, in the South of Belgium where he's been djing for a long while. He has also been producing dance music since 2001. He came to international proeminence trough King Kong records (Sharam Jey's label) for which he's been producing Eps with his partner Djerom under the name of Loulou Players.

The pair went on to remix artists such as Darren Emerson, Joachim Garraud, Zoo Brasil, John Acquaviva or Remo feat Cheleonis R Jones and became a hugely influential dj duo in the South of Belgium, playing huge raves and festivals. Carried by this succes, Olivier founded his own label, naturely named Loulou records but then felt it was time to start producing alone and started recording under his soon-to-be-big Kolombo moniker.

He then hooked up with Belgian producer Compuphonic to release eps on Tiga's Turbo imprint for which he has also solo material lined-up. They also have remixed Cari Lekebush and the Presets (on Modular) and Martin Solveig.

As a side project he's also producing deeper music together with Belgian house dj veteran Geoffroy (Hi-Phen, Suicide, SSR) as Mugwump whose recent eps on Mood Music, Misericord, Disco45 and Kompakt have been causing a stir.

The future looks bright with new material lined-up on Systematic, Turbo, Boxer, Hypnotic and many more as well as collabs n remixes all over with Compuphonic, Ante Perry,Oliver Klein, Mugwump and start a new deephouse projet with his cousin call Family Stuff...
