"Joy Joy Destroy" because the name "deejays Tom and DaphnÃ©" wouldn't tell much about them.
Only double pleasure for them. Sometimes lifted with a dark edge just to even better feel how much fun it all can be.
They like to be 2 behind the till, learning from each other and as a change having fun BEHIND the counter.
Seamlessly they'll mix Frankie of Sister Sledge (Daphne's first record released from mum's own hands) with Tom's beloved old school acid classics.
Jonny Slut & Fil OK - were formed in 2002, out of boredom, frustration, and wanting to make the world more liveable in! Citing influences from duoâ€™s such as Sparks, Soft Cell & Suicide, the pair were quickly snapped up by International Deejay Gigoloâ€™s for their 2003 club smash â€œHooked On Radiationâ€, featuring an exclusive Pet Shop Boys remix.
Along side running the hugely successful London club NagNagNag with JoJo De Freq, the guys spent much of 2004 on an extensive international tour, including Europe, New York, Tokyo, Moscow and Rio.
The boys then released their second, double A side single â€œBall & Chain / Snakeâ€ in January 2005 on their own label, NagNagNag Records. More touring and recording followed in 2005, including doing remixes for Siobhan Fahey, Readers Wifeâ€™s and Kings Have Long Arms.
Their new single â€œZero Zeroâ€ is set for release in November 2005, followed by â€œUnderdogâ€ in early 2006, and then their first album.
17 December will be the pre release party for their new album !
Les Bourgeois started as a group of friends sharing one passion, two decks and a house.
The story starts at a shady New Years Eve party for the Highlife of Kortrijk. Roy and Arthur were dj'ing and used "Les Bourgeois" of Jacques Brel to stir things up as a practical joke. "Les Bourgeois" was born.
They decided to move the decks to their place in Brussels. Everybody was invited to bring some records or use theirs to get the feel of dj-ing. Soon enough also Stijn and Samyra showed a talent for mixing the right stuff. They all started dj'ing at private parties in basements and from there on moved to parties at Sint Luckas high school, where they got a feel of a bigger audience.
Their concept brings smiles on people's faces and gives party people a bloody good time. Every one of them has a particular taste in music, bringing a mix of rock, house, electro, techno and the stylish oldie. Arhur brings the Decks, Roy the Music, Stijn the Beats and Samyra Funcks it all up.
This mix of Antwerp (Samyra), Hasselt (Stijn), Lommel (Roy), Ghent (Arthur) and Brussels (where four of them studied) gives them the opportunity to dj at parties all over Belgium in a mix and match situation.
'Les Bourgeois' brings them together more and more. Join them in their fun whenever you can!
JoJo De Freq has fast established herself as one of the UK's most exciting and unique dj's. She is the resident and co-promoter at London's super salacious Nag Nag Nag and is a regular at Bugged Out's various club nights.
JoJo left her native Vancouver over four years ago and soon found like-minded souls attracted to the burgeoning neo-electro scene from which Nag Nag Nag exploded. It is now internationally renowned and established as one of London's hottest club nights packed week in week out with wild revelers from the capital and beyond. Nag is, as JoJo says, a wear what you want, play what you want kind of place attracting flamboyant and creative clubbers. It's this attitude that has made its appeal so enduring and has attracted requests to play from the likes of Miss Kittin, Hell and Tiga as well as live acts like Ascii Disco and Riton.
JoJo's sets are altogether different to fellow Nag DJ's Jonny Slut and Fil OK as she skillfully mixes tuneful techno, electro-disco and synthetic house throwing across some curve-balls to keep the party rockin'. You are as likely to hear underground sounds from Jesper Dahlback, Mathew Jonson and Kiki as you are a classic rave track or electro-pop anthem. Her sets are by turns crowd-pleasing and fun, her aim to turn those wallflowers into floorpieces! Her emotive, melodic, goosebumping late night sets at Bugged Out at The End have cemented her reputation with fans and turned others on to her sound. The main room has never been busier than when the lights came up at 7am at recent parties.
JoJo has become a sought after DJ at cutting edge UK clubs like Bugged Out, Fabric, Stealth, Death Disco and Sankey's Soap. Her spirited style and attitude has found her in demand internationally with regular gigs in Paris, Barcelona and Berlin.
"JoJo De Freq has impeccable taste and technical finesse whose crowd-pleasing sets blend everything from the latest Legowelt production to European designer disco." Piers Martin NME
Fil was formally one half of pop duo Tracey & Sharon with DJ Tom Stephan in 1993, he had a hit in 1994 with Filthy Hetero, and toured UK. Fil went on to study Sound Engineering in mid 90â€™s and recorded demoâ€™s for Sister Bliss. Fil wrote film music in the late 90â€™s for London Art Collective, Let Me Feel Your Finger First. Then formed the band Atomizer in 2001 with Jonny Slut, whoâ€™s first single Hooked On Radiation was released on International Deejay Gigolo in September 2003.
He started the London club NagNagNag in Spring 2002 with Jonny Slut and JoJo De Freq. Set up label NagNagNag Records in 2004. Released second Atomizer single, Ball & Chain/Snake in January 2005, with Tommie Sunshine remix.
Currently, Fil is planning next single release and putting finishing touches to the first Atomizer album. Started new club night, Sorry We Killed You, in June 2005.
Done remixes for, Siobhan Fahey (Pulsartron), Readers Wifeâ€™s (Nostalgia), Rubicks (Actress/Model), Mechanical Cabaret (Cheap & Nasty), Stazi (Love Is Lethal), Kings Have Long Arms ft. Phil Oakey (Rock & Roll Is Dead) and Napsugar (ThisIs How We Do It). Fil is also currently working on remix for Boy George
Jonny made the transition from teenage Goth pin-up, being the face of the hugely influential 80â€™s club the Batcave, and keyboard player in the band Specimen, to electro pioneer via Diskord Datkord. The pre house hip-hop-punk band he fronted with Adamski, and as a dancer with the mighty stadium house heroes The KLF.
Restless and always curious, it was obvious to him at the beginning of the 21st century something like Nag Nag Nag had to happen, to shake up the tired, listless and corporate London club scene. The rest is history.
