Kwak grew up to the sounds of Miles Davis, Tito Puente, Funkadelic, the Beatles and their peers thanks to his music-loving parents..
In 1994, he began organizing parties and concerts and soon became the resident DJ and programme planner at the Kafe Kan’h (1999-2004). In 2002, together with DJ Eleven, he launched the Strictly Niceness, a monthly party which has since become one the most popular groove event in Brussels.
Behind the turntables, Kwak offers a breadth of styles that reflect the richness of groove across cultures and history. The listener travels between continents where the music is warm and swings. From hip-hop to reggae, soul to disco, funk, salsa and afrobeat, house, dubstep or even UK garage music, the musical odyssey will bring you where the classics meet the uncharted, where new productions meet the old ones
His other occupations include a radio show “Back to Niceness” which he has hosted every week for the past 6 year on FM Brussels and writes a chronic for a Belgian magazine (Focus Vif)
