J'approuve le concept ! :)
Magnifique! Show lumineux extraordinaire et son parfait. Souvenir inoubliable!
Wat een geweldige avond. Heerlijke muziek, zalige sfeer en vette lichtshow. Perfecte afsluiter van 2015 voor mij!
Super soirée! The Magician reste énormissime :-) A refaire ...
Bon concept mais si les gens dansaient vraiment, ce serait encore mieux!
Vergeleken met daftpunk, underworld, etienne de crécy, royksopp, booka shade, etc, was dit één van de slechtste optredens ooit in de AB.... Magician OK, maar Martin Solveig moest eigenlijk veel beter...
Magician bof bof par contre Martin Solveig, génial. A refaire mais un vendredi parce que dur dur au taf le lendemain ; -)
Echt top. De avond is voorbij gevlogen. Degene die er niet bij waren hadden ongelijk.
Martin Solveig Top mais The Magician énorme!!! Soirée géniale !
geweldig, de sfeer mocht best wel nog uitbundiger!!! klein minpunt: de plakkende dansvloer...
Geweldig! Enkel drank wat duur.
Très chouette concept :-) A refaire !
On a vraiment adoré. Dommage que c'etait en semaine ca on travaillait vendredi... À refaire mais en prenant congé le lendemain
Zalig optreden, alleen jammer dat de tent niet volliep en het dak er niet afging ! Prijs/kwaliteit top !
A brilliant & brand new electronic mini-festival!
With winter at the door, on Thursday 17/12, AB breaks through the dark December days with the brilliant NEON, a brand new electronic mini-festival in collaboration with Proximus. We consulted fellow Brusselian The Magician when filling in the details of this first edition, he served as a beacon in the enormous ocean of future- and deep-house.
We conjured up a pretty much fantastic line-up together, one that will chase the winter from your body and dance the cold out of your bones! Warm yourself on the summery beats of headliners THE MAGICIAN & MARTIN SOLVEIG and fresh talent like ALEX ADAIR, DARIUS & ARCHES.
House of Mask
For one night only, our Club will be no ordinary concert venue but rather a one way ticket to Ibiza’s music scene. NEON presents: House Of Mask! DJ Sfïn is flying over from the legendary party island, especially to send pounding deep house through your body and make-up artist Melanie Lola Cottenie comes straight from London to NEONise you.
A bit thirsty? We fill our bar with Cubanistos, a delicious rum-flavoured beer. Because, for NEON, it can be a little more than your standard pint! (Though the Jupiler will always be standing cold for its fans too, of course).
Proximus AB Neon DJ Contest
More than 100 participants and almost 10,000 votes received... To say that the Proximus-AB Neon DJ Contest was a success would be an understatement! So making a choice wasn’t easy. But it wasn’t impossible either. Subsequently, there was finally only one short and simple name remaining: the winner of our contest is D.E.S.K.!
He will open the festivities on 17 December and get all present in the mood for making an unparalleled party of it. Congratulations!
And the winner is: D.E.S.K
In 2010, Stephen Fasano from Brussels put his successful Aeroplane (a collaboration with comrade Vito de Luca) on the ground in order to then take an even higher flight path as The Magician.
He has built an enormous army of SoundCloud fans since then, with his monthly ‘Magic Tape’ mixtapes, and has been making a name for himself with remixes of ‘I Follow Rivers’ (Lykke Li), ‘Happiness’ (Sam Sparro), ‘Rather Be’ (Clean Bandit) and ‘Faded’ (Zhu). As producer, Fasano has also scored a heap of dancefloor-fillers like ‘Memory’ (collab. with Yuksek), ‘Sunlight’ (the summer hit of’14 feat. Olly Alexander of Years & Years) and most recent single ‘together’.
In the meantime, The Magician has also established his own label, Potion (with Arches amongst the ranks). He regularly sets up label nights, even as far away as LA and Miami, and can now pretty much refer to himself as a regular DJ on ultimate party island Ibiza (Pacha, Space, Ushuaïa, …) and the world’s biggest dance festivals Tomorrowland & Tomorrowworld too.
That Magician is quite a busy bee. After five years, now a first home-game in AB!
Ever since debut singles ‘Madan’ and ‘Rocking Music’, it has become impossible to imagine the contemporary electronic scene without Parisian producer Martin Laurent Picandet or Martin Solveig. Since 2002, he’s been scoring the one world hit after the other (‘Jealousy’, ‘Everybody’, ‘Hello’, ‘Hey Now’, ‘The Night Out’, ‘Intoxicated’, …) with his adventurous ratatouille of disco, soul, (deep) house and electro. As trendsetter, he invariably drops by the biggest EDM events around the world, including Tomorrowland.
After collaborations with the likes of Bob Sinclar, Lee Fields, Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Fedde le Grand, Laidback Luke and Dragonette, our favourite disco Frenchy took a seat in the producer’s chair for Madonna’s MDNA album in 2012, with the single ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’’ featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. as highlight.
In recent years, Solveig has been evolving in the direction of future- & deep-house with releases (‘Intoxicated’ and ‘+1’) on Spinnin’ Deep since 2015, sublabel of Amsterdam’s Spinnin’ Records label on which Afrojack, Watermät, Oliver Heldens and Martin Garrix reside.
Not so very long ago, this fresh DJ and producer force from Britain’s Chiltington (West Sussex) was still focused upon progressive house & electro. But, after a musical epiphany – he became completely mad about the song ‘So Good To Me’ by colleague Chris Malinchak – and a few very enjoyable remixes of the likes of Jessie Ware, Imagine Dragons and Ed Sheeran, he started heading in a more commercial direction. With a sample of ‘Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing’ by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell he put together first single ‘Make Me Feel Better’ and the rest is history. Summery, soulful future-/deep-house with a feel-good vibe. New single ‘Heaven’ has one very much longing for the summer again …
The then very young producer/DJ Darius presented his business card to the French house scene in 2012, in the form of debut EP ‘Velour’ which included club hit ‘Maliblue’. His disco and funk injected beats soon provided him with a spot in the DJ booth aside Super Discount, Ben Pearce, Yuksek (who also worked with The Magician on EP ‘Twist’ via label Kitsuné) and Cyril Hahn. After that there were remix assignments for Sébastien Tellier, Lianne La Havas and Jungle, and on 20 April 2015 he produced his fourth extended play, ‘Helios’ via Roche Music. That last issue was introduced by Terence N'guyen last summer at Dour in the Red Bull Elektropedia Balzaal.
Belgian producer-duo Jochen Sablon (Sound Of Stereo) and Sebastiaan Vandevoorde (Moonlight Matters) have joined their forces under the name Arches for a number of years now. Their extremely danceable cocktail of analogue synth sounds, disco beats and soulful hooks is certainly giving off sparks on the other side of the channel. They appeared on the radar of a certain The Magician with their first single release ‘There’s A Place’ (complemented by remixes from the likes of Kiesza and Chloë Howl) and he has recently taken Arches in on his Potion label. Excellent second single ‘New Love’ feat. Karen Harding is the first fruit of this juicy collaboration!
Experience AB like you’ve never experienced it before. We’re talking lasers. Black lights. Mesmerizing visuals. Dancers. Explosive beats. Let NEON take you to a higher place!Read more
