Ricky Corazón is a duo of graphic artists fan of alternative music sung in Spanish formed by German Papillon (France) and Rodrigo Aranda G. (Chili).
They live in Brussels from love and cool tequila. After a journey to Mexico with long walks on the Playa de la Muerte, they decide to share their musical discoveries.

NINETIES - MC KINKY
MC Kinky did a demo called KINKY REGGAE which she gave to Boy George when she met him in a London nightclub. Shortly after rapping on KIPSY (a track on George's HIGH HAT album), he signed her to MORE PROTEIN. That led to the appearance of the first E-Zee Posse single, EVERYTHING STARTS WITH AN 'E', which was the big break for her, reaching the Top 20 in the UK and becoming an anthem for the 'SUMMER OF LOVE' generation. The song was written as an instrumental by Jeremy Healy, a long time friend of Boy George. George thought it needed some vocals and thought of Kinky right away.
From 1988 to 1992 MC Kinky performed around the (club) world, including at the infamous Sunrise, one of the pioneer clubs to take the underground rave movement to the large scale dance events) and together with no one less than Leigh Bowery.

JD Twitch and JG Wilkes are Optimo. They started their own parties in November 1997 in Glasgow. They are a musical institution in Scotland, standing for and supporting cutting edge music and ideas. Optimo has played around the world in major clubs.
They released the successful CD "Kill the DJ" together with Tigersushi and Psychout in association with our Belgian Eskimo Recordings. They have a special Belgian feeling as on of their cds is called "Banging in Belgium" and a recent release was a tribute to the famous Belgian R&S record label.
On their website they don't avoid "difficult subjects" and praise people who do something about it. Let's name Noam Chomsky and Kurt Vonnegut.
"No two audiences are the same and no two sets are the same."
Spacid has a colourful 19 years of dj-ing experience. And it shows! Whenever he’s working the dancefloor, the party is always hot and intense!
Resident at big clubs and party concepts, invited at many events both in Belgium and abroad, loved at festivals. He’s also regularly a guest at radio shows. It’s safe to say that Spacid is an established value and has a strong fan base.
Voted best dj on sites and polls, he drags in the awards along with the biggest dj names.
Spacid is not tied to one particular style. He’s a very versatile and flexible dj. He can play various styles of electronic music depending on the venue, people or mood of the party. Generally he’s often booked at minimal house & techno parties, but he mostly plays at electro parties, a style of which is considered to be a pioneer in Belgium.
As the label boss of Radius Records, he seeks to expose the foundations of the electronic side of 70s and 80s disco, highlighting not only its innovative aspect, but also its importance in today's dance music.
Aguila is mad about vinyl. Over 1000 black covers are arranged in the best possible way in his private studio. He bought his first Technics at the age of 17 and hasn’t stopped to treat vinyls as rare oyster pearls.
As a boy of the late seventies, he is much influenced by disco, italo and wave. His mum however danced her ass off at the PopCorn so soulful gems are highly familiar to him. Add this to him being discotheque-born at the end of New Beat and start of House and Acid and you have a mixture of retro and new, from Aretha Franklin over The Hacienda to Inflagranti.
Currently playing in bars and basements, from private parties to events in metro stations.

"........Allo Allo Allo ......Allo....Allooo .....C'est toi?....Allo.....Oui ..... J'entends très mal ... Tu est très loin .. trés loin......."
is the beginning of the end ... the end of the love that might never have existed but that we can't accept..... the fear, the longing, frightened to be alone, are stronger than respecting ourselves
... the phone is the only instrument giving hope .. a confidence that might destroy us

Jey Crisfar is a 21 yo small town boy living in Brussels. Together with his friend Constantino Escandon, they made a video with no name in Mexico City and it's surroundings during two days.
Using cheap digital equipment, mixing photo and video. The video is about the difficulty of living in a town around too much people, the wall that still stands between all of us, in everyday life. A feeling of oppression, loneliness, and surviving.
