Wiz kid Jef Vanderlinden aka Dyslectic joins us for this year's Unifant festival with a brand spanking new live set! At the age of 10 a friend of his mom’s accidentally left a MC 303 groove box at his home. Jef has been producing. So Dyslectic is, despite his 32 years of age, a veteran in electronic music producing . In his last 22 years as producer, using different pseudo's (Voxcoder, Stoika,...), he has been exploring many styles like IDM, Dub step, Drum and Bass, downbeat and trip hop. The last few years he's been his work has been inspired by the Berlin electro wave with its breakthrough music from the bPitch and monkeytown-label. Guttering basslines, lush synths and dub-influenced textures work their way through the tracks, keeping things crispy and fresh. We are very much looking forward to his new work!!!

The Hoffmen will play the audience like one of their synths and bring even the biggest cynic into full-blown ecstasy!

Carlos geometri Gonzalez
"Growing up as a teenager in Brighton (UK) in the mid 90’s Carlos Geometri Gonzalez was surrounded by an explosion of new dance music & free parties, however it was the early Jungle scene that enticed him to sell his drum kit and buy decks.. from those early heady days as the Jungle / Drum & Bass scene emerged he has traversed and incorporated many genres into his DJ’ing career which now spans over 2 decades.. trip hop, hip hop, breakbeat, electro, techno, house and oldskool hardcore.. basically he rarely likes to get boxed into definitions of musical genres.
Over the years he has had various residencies in Brighton at Audio, The Concorde, Ocean Rooms, The Volks & more. A scratch DJ for a band W.O.M.B which rocked Glastonbury and other festivals.
In the late 2000’s he formed Geometri with a long time friend, producing Parisian influenced electro house with an 80’s nostalgia & heavy baselines. With remixes and singles being released over various labels. Again hosting weekly residencies in Brighton and London. As well as regular slots at Battlejam with Beardyman & JFB.
Now Carlos brings all this experience together to create musical journeys, with phat beats and heavy baselines to get people moving & grooving.
Last year we had a magical closing of the festival as all artists came together on the stage to jam! this year we've decided to also organise an electronic jamsession! Very much looking forward to what this year’s jam sessions will bring!
Captain Goof and the (drunken) sailors (BE)
Great news came to us from all wind directions: Captain Goof and the (drunken) Sailors are accidentally setting sail to Portugal!
After a steering mistake of one of his (drunken) sailors they ended up in a fight with 8 krakens at the Portuguese coast. Although they fought brave and honored Poseidon (and Bachus) every day of their nautical life, their ship is heavily damaged! Among the losses of the fight: a giant barrel of Caribbean rum!!!
Since the reparations of their ship (and the search for a new barrel of rum) will take a while, they accepted to pay us a visit and try to get drunk on Superbock instead.
Crossing borders and oceans, the Captain and his sailors will take you on a musical journey throughout the history of funk and disco. Come aboard and discover deep sea gems and rarities that get your body moving and let you forget your hangover.
During 2 hours the captain and his sailors will serve you the best musical breakfast imaginable.
Avast Mateys! And see you all on the dancefloor!
This Belgian DJ is fascinated by all music older than himself.
Get ready for a smart mix of obscure as well as well known funky 80ies tracks!
After countless visits to all flea markets and record stores in Belgium he ended up with a big enough collection of vinyl to make your legs go crazy!
O Fundo do posso
5 Portuguese hard rockers will rocking our stage on sunday!
Deep, deep down… behind a nothingness you can only guess at because as you descend time expands, and the possibility of braking no longer exists… remains desperation become word. A cry of resistance that from the very bottom of that well - a bottom you can never reach, because it is always lower down - howls a resounding echo of our conscience.
It is there, in this space of vertigo, that we are the electrification of our wills. It is there, in the combination of possible existences, that we are chaos become sound. This is where we celebrate life, death, and immerse ourselves in this caustic ritual called rock music, which embeds and alienates us. We need this alienation by sound as much as those who vegetate on the surface need the air that they pollute with their existences.
