On Thursday 15 July it's time for a new edition of 'Centraal Laat'. Online for now, but hopefully we'll be able to welcome you back in the museum again soon!

Suze Ijó

In the lively harbour city of Rotterdam, Suze Ijó's love for music was present from an early age. She manifested herself as a dancer and record collector, and later as a DJ and radio producer. In addition, she is a former 'First Floor' member: A communal space near Rotterdam where music lovers gathered to practice and hosted private events inspired by New York's iconic party 'the Loft'. A lover of all genres that do not distinguish between electronic and analog sounds, Suze Ijó always carries positive vibes with her. She can be found regularly at Operator Radio (Rotterdam) where she hosts her own show 'Ba tende'.

Quincy Fung-Loy, best known as QUANZA, is a Dutch-Surinamese producer, guitarist, composer and student of Musicology at Utrecht University. After hearing Jimi Hendrix for the first time, QUANZA started teaching himself how to play guitar at the age of thirteen. A few years later, his journey as an electronic music producer began. In his music he combines live instrumentation with electronic, resulting in electronic jazz to avant-garde hip-hop. His debut song "A Death Supreme" on United Identities gained early support from Louis Vuitton's music director Benji B, who played it on BBC Radio 1.

Brintex Collective

Brintex Collective started out as a three-headed band consisting of young Rotterdam musicians, led by keyboardist Brenn Luiten. This slowly grew into a creative collaboration. Now the band consists of five other musicians who give a lot of color to Brenn's compositions; Inspired by jazz, hip-hop, electronic music and all the diverse interests of every musician in the band, the result is a fresh sound that immediately energizes the audience.
