Volta (B)XL - music: STUFF. + GLINTS + Poldoore

This quintet lavishes audience with an intriguing and swinging mix of instrumental funk, hip hop, jazz, beat and electronic, often described as "futuristic" and "otherworldly". Or in the words of Gunter Van Assche (De Morgen): "Back in 2015, the concept of 'jazz-funk fusion' didn't sound particularly exciting. But STUFF. is an exception to that rule. To every rule, actually. Their sound harbours a love for BadBadNotGood, though the thought of Hudson Mohawke or Alt-j never seems far off either."

Lander Gyselinck (drums), Mixmonster Menno (turntables), Joris Caluwaerts (keyboards), Dries Laheye (bass) and Andrew Claes (sax)


GLINTS, who hails from Antwerp but has British roots, will take you on a poetic musical trip. Manna from heaven for anyone who loves dark poetry set to the calming rhythm of minimalist electro sound. Hip hop meets soul meets electro. Oscar and The Wolf meets Mike Skinner. At turns melancholy and ominous – but always rich with symbolism.



Poldoore has achieved an ingenious blend of old-school soul, funk and hip hop with summery new-school beats.

Since 2011 his music has been released by the American label Cold Busted, under whose auspices this young man from Louvain has dropped a debut EP, two vinyl releases, several remixes and even a full album.

Poldoore grew up both here and in the US and has created his own melodic sound, with every imaginable influence to be gleaned from such an international youth. After live and DJ performances at the Dour Festival, Tomorrowland, Lokerse Feesten and various other festivals in France, Greece, South Africa and Spain, Poldoore is now ready to conquer the rest of the world.
