Boogie Belgique is the recording name of Oswald Cromheecke, a Belgian Producer/DJ. He lives in Ghent, Belgium and studies Illustration and animation. He started in 1999 with music lessons and electric guitar and played in a reggaeband with friends named “Jahfar”. While writing music for “Jahfar”, he started using Ableton. It’s because of this that he started making his own tunes using old samples from ‘30s and ‘40s albums. His free debut album “Blueberry Hill” was released with Dusted Wax Kingdom in June 2012. From top to bottom “Blueberry Hill” is filled with electro swing moods, funky hip-hop rhythms and tasty jazzy samples.
His 2nd album “Time for a Boogie” was released with Cold Busted on January 23, 2013. ‘Time For A Boogie’ is a gratifying Trip Hop/Hip Hop album. It is big band and swing jazz influenced and is abstract, instrumental, cinematic and lush.
Boogie Belgique’s music can be described as a fusion of old and new, vintage yet innovative music that you can play on a dance floor or in your living room.
