Great DJs and music is the most important of every party

I started to be a DJ already in 1980 ;-) with all kinds of music. At that time disco, soul, pop, classics all what people wanted to hear and make them crazy and gave them a fun time at the disco in town. 2003 i started to dance Salsa and right away the asked me can you play music. Ofcourse i said. Always collecting records, cd’s, downloads, iTunes of music i like. I have also Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Zouk, Kizomba music. 2004 i started to learn Zouk with many friends who dance now so good and yes i was already again the DJ. It gives me energy, a smile and a really good feeling inside myself to see dancers dance allnight long. Enjoying the time on the dance floor. I try to play for all Zouk dancers because there are so many different kind of styles we can dance zouk on if you have an open dance mind. My favorite style is to let them dance 3 songs together in a dance flow. That they are feeling each other in dance and emotion. Away from everyone on the dancefloor just the two of you in the Zouk dance. 3 songs that can be together in a flow. for example Slow R&B, Lyrical & Neo. Flying above the dance floor ;-) Or midtempo popsong, original Zouk song and a Remix! ;-) I wanna dance too and be a better dancer but it seems i am still more a DJ. Have Fun, Enjoy All Zouk Marathon’s, Every Marathon is a special one and make it an Amazing time again together! Zouk Love & Big Hug. Freddy.

Petter has his background in music from an early age, playing multiple instruments and dedicating around 10 years to playing in bands and creating music. In the beginning of 2013, Petter started with Brazilian Zouk and a new passion exploded inside him. Through the years, until today, Petter has been a very active, hardworking zouk enthusiast helping to build the Zouk Oslo Norway scene, and traveling around the world, multiple times, to learn more about zouk. His passion has grown alot, and Petter has been a regular dancer and DJ to see/meet around in Europe's zouk scene. The most importent to him, is "to feel the dance and to feel the music". He focuses on a great variety of music during his DJ sets, and mostly original songs without to much crazy effects and added beats. As a DJ, he wants to bring everyone on a journey through the language of zouk and music, and bring the dancers closer to each other. He always try to create a magical atmosphere, and represent every style, mixed in with both new and old styles of zouk music. As a dancer, he focuses on clear leading, bringing trust and comfort to his partner, and enjoying together the music with flow, dynamique and musicality. Being connected through the pillars of the zouk dance language is always his favourite thing to do. DJing has been a natural evolution from being a experienced musician, and no matter if Petter teach, dance, DJ he always says he want to contribute to an unique and special energy, that only zoukers can create together. Petter loves the Prague Zouk Marathons and love being apart of the events every season, every year. Lets enjoy together soon. Zouk and love, from DJ Viking.

I met the Brazilian Zouk dance in 2002 in Netherland. This dance is very sensual, but it is the music which I fell in love with.
In 2005 I started as one of the first few DJ’s in Netherland, just for fun of course! And since 2010 my passion starts to expand to abroad and overseas, like Spain, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Croatia, The USA and Canada.
As a DJ I witness the development of zouk music: from zouk, ghettozouk and kizomba to remixes, alternatives and pop songs.
I hope to share my passion with others. I love to have different sets of playing, surprises and a good mixture of all styles!

DJ Hush Z

Germany,

For HUSHZ being a DJ is basically something he arrived at after patiently building this craft from many elements.

His will to live is driven by musical phrases which helped him with his main occupation as a classical music double bass player or obtaining musical degree. Obviously, that was not enough, so he also explored territories of composing and producing music from scratch using both physical instruments as well as digital modelling. On that field he also released two albums of zouk remixes and one album including tracks he composed and produced completely on his own.

Breathing music for most of his life made him fall in love with a wide variety of different genres. Years of listening, studying and making music gave him a deep understanding of emotional messages stated in songs which he appreciates very deeply to share with dancers he plays for.

Hundreds of performances he gave as a DJ and professional musician helped him develop the ability to read the audience at practically an instinctive level. It also taught him unquestionable professionalism and dedication. He never finds any issues with adapting to events he performs at, from cosy small meetings to full blown zouk congresses.

Also, as an active member of the zouk community he enjoys any non-musical contact with potential audiences greatly. This is mainly because he feels constant gratitude for having a chance to share music he loves with others.

The building includes the Neo-Gothic Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Sacré Coeur), built in 1882–1884 according to a design by the Beuron Benedictine P. G. Béthun.
