Soumaya Phéline

Day Program

There’s an unsettling excellence to the selections of Soumaya Phéline. The Brussels-based DJ, promoter and (Kiosk) radio host isn’t here to make crowds feel comfortable. Instead, she constantly toys with dancefloor expectations by drawing from various electronic sub-genres – never quite giving you the kick, climax or gulp of air you thought you needed or asked for. Heavy with bass, breaks, mesmerizing melodies and rhythmic vocals, Soumaya’s sets distort and disturb in a way that’s strangely satisfying.
