Groovalicious is a new party concept in Brussels dedicated to urban roots & global grooves. The driving forces behind it are DJ Mukambo & Bruselo. They have been playing and promoting urban grooves for some years now.
Expect the most danceable urban grooves ranging from afrobeat, soukous, coupé décalé, Brazilian sounds, Latin, arabesque, and Balkan to hiphop, dancehall & reggae.
Since 2002 DJ and producer mps PILOT has immersed himself in the cutting-edge TROPICAL & WORLD BEAT SCENE, a musical universe where exciting developments can be heard every day. In every possible direction and slippage between all different genres, mps PILOT maps the crosspollination and divergence of contemporary music. Groova people expect some groovy selection of azonto, mapouka, but also oriental grooves!
Bruselo : Urban roots & global grooves from the mountains of Balkan to the beaches of Brazil: cumbia, Balkan, arabesque, soukous, coupé décalé, hip hop, reggaeton, reggae & jungle. Music with groove!
Mukambo: his weekly program Radio Mukambo immerses you in global grooves and the pulsation of our cities where sounds get mixed up to create world fusion without borders. Afrobeat, ethiogrooves, Afro-Latin, manguebeat, reggae, arabesque, world fusion, global hiphop… Global Grooves from the Urb’n’Jungle!
