ILLSYLL & Fatoosan aka MOMSNIGHTOUT w/ Tell your friends
Two hip hop-minds, friends and mothers open the night by inviting all their friends.
"Just tell your friends to get with my friends so we can be friends." Notorious B.I.G.
Fatoosan and IllSyll are two female OG DJs from Brussels who have been active on the nightlife scene for a while. Friends and mothers, who want to create a space for all generations to come together and party, join forces and start curating events under the name of MomsNightOut. For their first event, they invite you to « Tell Your Friends », a place where music lovers (parents or not btw) can celebrate their passion for sounds and musical treasures. Expect an inclusive line-up and a massive mix of genres, from experimental hip hop, dub, drum & bass to trap and acid.
ILLSYLL can't hide the link between her selection and her Nigerian roots. And why should she? Her knowledge ranges from female rap to the basics of boom-bap through an endless love of trap and 2000s rap. Her authentic sets feel (and dance) like musical rollercoasters of rhythms and bass, and reflect her personality: energetic, sensitive and colorful.
Fatoosan was one of the founding members of the first Belgian female hip hop crew Supafly Collective (Brussels/Ghent). Since 2009 they have been adding a feminine touch to the Belgian nightlife and curating parties with a focus on female artists. The crew has radio shows on the Brussels stations Bruzz and Kiosk. Both with her crew and solo, Fatoosan has played countless concerts from Brussels to Ghent, in European clubs and at festivals such as the World Wide Festival (Sète), Couleur Café and Dour. For a year she was also able to combine her passion for deejaying and singing, as DJ of the Belgian artist Blu Samu.
