Diego d'Ursel / Deejay


Dj banner
Electronic Dance Music DJ

The variety of music that Diego likes is very broad. In his car he usually enjoy listening to deep soulful music privileging harmonies. That's reflected in his deejay set by playing a lot of progressive house, and when the crowd is up to some more underground sounds, he loves to play deep-house and tech-house.

But it's all about the crowd, and since Diego's love for music extend to hip-hop, oldies, pop music, he'll build his set according to the reactions of the dancefloor. It's a complicated science but don't underestimate his talent. A deejay set must be constructed in live, and he'll usually have two tracks in advance to heat up or heat down when necessary.

Bio

A complete deejay set is a journey: starting with deep and tech house, building up with progressive and house. Heating up more with dance and electro. Lower the tempo with hip-hop and some pop, and go for a quick trip into dubstep and trap. Then back to electro, makes girls sing on commercial progressive, etc, etc

Diego d'Ursel / Traveller


Traveler
Roadtrip across USA

I decided to go on a 6 month roadtrip in the US with my photographer friend Thomas Lhoest. I enjoyed music there that you cannot find anywhere in Europe. I especially fell in love with dirty blues and swing jazz. We did - and we still have a lot of work to do - some videos and interviews of some locals musicians.

I began to really like photography but I'll keep that as a occasional hobby and will just post to my instagram from time to time.
