Walrus (7)

Real Name:
Michiel Jan Ivo Claus
Recently penned by Resident Advisor as “one of Belgium's most exciting locals”, Walrus is a quixotic DJ and producer hailing from Brussels that revels in idiosyncratic club music. His sets are carefully crafted assaults on what club music is often perceived to be. Walrus is not afraid to unbalance and dislocate his audience, confronting people with his definition of intent, groove and musical space, building up a quirky tension that is as serious as it is open-minded. He uses the power of imagination to hold back the night, to charm motorways and to surf on beta waves.
His record label Basic Moves is an adventurous journey through the outer limits of house, techno and electro. Fresh or old tracks, current or unreleased gems, the Basic Moves imprint rephrases sounds and influences spanning multiple generations while keeping an outsider’s spirit at heart.
Walrus spends his time away from the stage putting in hours of studio work, he used to help out the legendary Brussels record shop Dr. Vinyl and now takes care of the second hand section at Crevette Records, adhering to a relentless routine of searching for new, exciting music and last but not least, being involved in Fuse club Brussels.
