To make things all but simple we use the name Onda Sonora for a lot of our activities. It’s the name of the DJs who started it all use, it’s the name of our radio show and it’s the name of the overarching organisation that’s behind all the events we do.
Onda Sonora is a bunch of friends with a passion for off-the-beaten-track music, past to present, and an unstoppable urge to share that with everyone. We do this through parties, concerts, a radio show and a firm online presence. Since 2000. Mainly in and around Brussels. Avoiding the hype, the obvious and the path of least resistance. Joining forces with like-minded souls.
Some of the things we do:
- Parties called OUR PARTY (our soulful side) and Mathématiques Modernes (our darker side).
- A project, together with On-Point, called Soundboldly.be (formerly RELEASE) that tries to support and promote Belgian, off-centre electronic music through concerts, parties and a website.
- A radio show on fm brussel every Tuesday evening.
- Co-selecting a 22tracks list.

Loving it deep, raw and off the beaten track. Picking the finest tracks from different genres to make up a distinctive and quirky sound of their own. Combining the old with the new to build an all-consuming groove that takes you to places you have never been. Embracing the joyful as well as the moody. Trying to redefine rather than conform through selecting records and playing them loud.
By preference we play long sets where we can go all out in moods, tempos, styles and whatnot but as set-times are often on the short side these days it’s always handy if you give us an heads up on what your vision for the party is. It makes life a lot easier for both of us.
