Témé Tan (zaterdag)

Of Congolese descent and growing up between Kinshasa and Brussels, Témé Tan’s first musical memories were the rumba records his uncles played at family reunions and the zouk tapes of his cousins. Deciding to become a musician after celebrating his 18th birthday at a Beastie Boys concert, his music is a modern blend of minimalistic grooves, electronic beats and seductive harmonies.

Drawing inspiration from his global travels and taking musical cues from his time spent in Congo, Brazil, Japan, Guinea and beyond and influenced by artists from Jai Paul and MC Solaar through to Papa Wemba and Jorge Ben, Témé Tan distilled his varied influences at home in his studio in Brussels to create music which feels truly free of classification.
