On air from 13h and 14h45

“March winds and April showers bring May flowers and June bugs”, is how the saying goes. Unfortunately, spring still needs to come around the corner but you know good times are coming when there’s a fresh edition of our beloved Music For Sharing Plates mixtape – just for fun! And this month’s edition sure is.


This time Kuryakin & Nicky B are the ones providing you with fresh tunes to brighten up your lunch. Ilja en Nick have been digging for grooves for a long time and are part of VZW Freehouse, the organisation behind Monterey in the beautiful Citadelpark. During lockdown last year they founded Radio Ruit, Ghent’s very own online community radio uniting, and providing a platform for the city’s versatile music scene.

Every Sunday afternoon from 14h to 18h Radio Ruit challenges young creatives and collectives to take over the online radio waves and show you their world on radioruit.com and on their Mixcloud page. It’s also the very first radio station in residence at “de Vooruit”. However, from July on they will move shop and build a studio at an old monastery (Theresia) in the city centre of Ghent (Theresianenstraat) that is surely going to be a lively hotspot. Something to look forward to as a lot of events and a very fine summer bar are coming your way. Keep an eye out!

The mix they made for us is full of breezy grooves, funk and some recent and less recent finds from trips to Lisbon, with the Portuguese language being somewhat of a recurrent theme. Two hours of afro, funk, soul and music from Cape Verde, Brasil, Portugal and beyond.
