Mambele is next up in our Magnetic Mix series. The Brussels-based DJ, producer and radio host has been putting out music for the better part of a decade and holds regular residencies at two radio stations, BRUZZ and Kiosk Radio. He released his latest project Proton last month that combines jazz, bossa nova and house music in exciting and innovative ways. There is a mix of instrumentals and vocal tracks like the silky smooth vocal song “Vibrations” with ZiL or the instrumental “Connections” with its easy-going and swinging bossa nova groove.

He takes that same attitude to this Magnetic Mix, which includes songs that he enjoyed playing at gigs. The mix moves quickly, capturing 26 songs in an hour, so stay on your toes with this.

“All the cancelled bookings gave me the opportunity to work on my music. This resulted in a first release this year, PROTON,” explains Mambele. “However I do miss DJ sets in front of a crowd. Collection of songs I enjoyed playing at gigs. Made this mix with the dancefloor in mind.”
