Background

Makasi

From Makasi’s beginnings in underground clubs in Antwerp and Amsterdam, to Tomorrowland, Tomorrowworld, Ultra, Miami Music Week, Sunburn, It’s The Ship, Balaton Sound, and beyond, the Belgian DJ/producer has shared the stage with heroes like Diplo, Martin Garrix, N.e.r.d, 50 Cent, Will.i.am, and many more.

Behind the decks he cuts an energetic figure, his peaktime sets feature short mixes and edits that cut up global house, EDM, and bass music. A versatile DJ (he had his first set of turntables aged 8 years old) Makasi aka Yannick Beloy is at home playing a big room set on festival stages as he is in the club with a deeper Afro-house sound influenced by Black Coffee, Francis Mercier, Caiiro, Moblack and co. He comes compl e t e wi t h the s ame ene rgy and passion for crossing genres, and explains it thus: “I don’t feel like I fit a particular music scene, I’ve always been a chameleon that can blend in anywhere”.

Inspired by the music of West African and Latin artists played at home during his childhood, Makasi has spent the last year producing a new body of work. His first release for 2024 is a collaboration with Asher Swissa entitled ‘Back Home’, released in April on New State Music. 

The team-up with Swissa precedes the first track from his new multi-single deal, also with New State; which will see him following in the footsteps of label alumni including Tiesto, Roger Sanchez, Zero 7, Paul Oakenfold, and many more. 

These new tracks from Makasi will join a discography that includes ‘Dumski’ ‘King Of Kings’, ‘Dance With Me’ (both signed to Smash The House), and ‘Lucky’. BIO In March, Makasi returned to Thailand for his biggest Asian club residency to date, and at one of the region’ s mos t anticipated new venues, Red Theatre. 

This weekly event joins a run of regular shows across Asia. He’s focused on a global DJ diary, as well as his shows in Belgium and Europe. With more music ready and a new syndicated radio show launching 31st May ‘24, the next stage of Makasi’s career is set for lift off.
