Kr!z

Kr!z

Kr!z always had a strong sympathy for the more gloomy, dark, rawer sound of techno. Artists like Jeff Mills, Surgeon & James Ruskin had a major influence on him in the 90s. They helped to define his musical taste and develop his own identity in the Techno scene. Kr!z still has a big love for Hip-Hop, which has left it’s mark in his technical DJ style: fast & tight mixing, properly dosed with cuts & scratches. Being a respected & established value in Belgium for a decade and a resident-DJ for Belgium’s legendary techno night ‘Kozzmozz’, his DJ-schedule now takes him all over the world.
In 2007, Kr!z felt there was too much good music around from his favourite artists that didn’t get a proper release, so he started his own label ‘Token’. He rapidly established the label as a fixed value in the Techno scene of today by bringing a timeless & powerful sound. In the years of it’s existence Token released tracks & remixes from Inigo Kennedy, Ø [Phase], Luke Slater, James Ruskin, Marcel Dettmann, Blawan, Surgeon, Ben Klock, Xhin, Sigha & Peter van Hoesen, amongst
others.
In 2019 Kr!z made the step from being solely a DJ to also releasing music as a producer. His debut EP “Mantra“ came out in April and received high acclaim by both media and some of the scene's best known artists.
