Mr. Leenknecht (BE)

To put it simply, I’m a guy from Ghent, Belgium who lives for grooves and graphics.

On one hand, I’m known as a DJ who plays a wide range of soulful music from across the decades and time zones – from the electric to the organic and all in-between. From beats to bossa, hip-hop to house, it’s a mixed bag that’s always diverse, and never mainstream. Aside from playing in my home country and organising my Chunks Of Funk and EarlyLate events in Ghent and Brussels, I’ve also played in Paris, Geneva, Warsaw, Lucerne and Amsterdam. I have had the honour of playing on several occasions at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival, and I have been hosting radio shows on FM Brussel and Chase for some time now.

On the other hand, I’m also a visual artist who is passionate about spreading positive messages through my street art. I’ve created many typographic murals in all sorts of places, and also create graphics for other physical and digital purposes.

The synergy between my grooves and my graphics is something that creates a real creative energy for me. Whatever it might be, I’m always creating something and spreading my passions across the world for others to discover and enjoy.
