22-year old Belgian DJ's. They play a wide variety of styles; from Cosmic & Balearic tracks, Italo &Boogie stuff, Chicago-House, Acid & New Beat, Detroit Techno and Deep & Tech-House.
Played already on the biggest dj-event in Belgium 10 Days off and i..
It all started in the summer of 2006 when Peter & Adriaan bought their first turntables & mixer. Their musical backgrounds were completely different: Adriaan was a classically trained pianist, and also a fanatical jazz listener, while Peter rather hanged out in the Trash Metal and the Hardcore scene.
Until 2008 they weren’t more than 2 bedroom dj’s who played a few times on small private parties but they decided to team-up. Since then things are going fast! In May 2008 Peter was selected for the pioneer pro dj contest and Adriaan gained himself a spot at Café Capital by being one of the winners of a mixtape contest of Silenced in collaboration with the Belgian national radio station Studio Brussel.
In February 2009 they decided to change their DJ-name and they became: KING & COUSIN.
In the meantime they played a lot in Leuven (STUKcafé, Rumba, Musicafé, Machine) but also at 10 Days Off (Ghent), Café Capital & Camping Zuid (Antwerp), Hotel Bloom (Brussel) and many other venues..
One of their mixtapes was even broadcasted on Pure FM in Cosy Mozzy’s radioshow ‘Dirty File’ They recently started their own blog called 'Swingers Blog' and later on this year they'll start with their own party concept in Leuven called 'Swingers Club'
They both are vinyl collectors and in those 3 years they managed to get a lot of old school rarities and fresh 80’s records. Their dj-sets are a blend of 80’s synthpop, italodisco, cosmic balearic beats, chicago house, new disco & electro tunes and even melodic Detroit techno & soulful deep house.
Their objectives are very clear, they just want to play their favourite tunes as much as possible and everywhere they can. Don’t expect noisy rave records or a set full of mash-ups but an original dj-set with vinyl records!
