Faisal is a Belgian DJ and producer based in Antwerp best known for his genre-bending sets and wide array of influences. As a child of the 90's and son of a soul and funk DJ in the 70's, Faisal grew up listening to the best of both worlds. Stepping out of whatever was going on in the real world, into his father's record collection. And back. Outlining creativity and defining genres in music is a thing of the past and that is what Faisal keeps in mind going into every set, trying to push things forward with new jams without losing touch with that classic good good. This love and open-mindedness in his DJ game is what landed him his own weekly residency on Belgium's leading radiostation Studio Brussel and the #3 spot on Red Bull Elektropedia DJ top 100 (with 2 Many DJ's and Lefto on respectively #1 and #2). In the summer of 2016 Faisal proves himself at Belgium's biggest festivals (Pukkelpop, Rock Werchter, ...) and made his international debut in Toronto (shoutout drizzy) and New York.
I play everything from hip-hop to rock&roll, disco, funk, latin, reggae, 80's, jazz, house & more. So anything goes, as long as it´s funky! My dj style can best be described as fast, funky & eclectic. I love blending together well known and obscure gems to deliver maximum impact on the dancefloor... Over the years i've had the pleasure of rocking the turntables on some big festivals (Couleur Cafe, Dour, Tomorrowland, ...) and smaller club nights in Belgium and beyond. Along the way sharing the stage/line-up with artists such as: Kid Koala, Kenny Dope, Breakestra, Dj Krush, Blackalicious, The Pharcyde, Jurassic 5, Dj Format, The Herbaliser, Dj Moneyshot.
