The first 4 seasons of caDenza hosted 46 nights, caDenza is now without doubt the hottest monthly house night in town! Up for it&amp;#8217;s 5th year, Ya&amp;#8217;Mo and Massimo Dacosta join forces to bring you the best in upfront music in one of world&amp;#8217;s most underground clubs: Decadance, Ghent (Belgium). He&amp;#8217;s also responsible for promoting and selecting the new talent and dj&amp;#8217;s in the Belgian house scene as a member of the Young Talent Corner organization and he&amp;#8217;s a regular contributor to Switch, Studio Brussel&amp;#8217;s dance show, broadcasted nationwide. Next to Ghent, he has a concept in his hometown Ostend named &amp;#8220;La Nuit&amp;#8221;. Situated at the Sea promenade, these parties (which are hosted with Keyvents.Be) are a fresh and new wind breezing in his city at the sea. La Nuit started in February 2006 with a house party by Ya&amp;#8217;Mo (Yamo.Be) &amp;amp; Key (Keyvents.be), but instantly played a pivotal role in shaping the parties in Ostend. Thanx to La Nuit, Ostend has gained a reputation as the &amp;#8216;must go to&amp;#8217; party city and with partners &lt;span class=\&quot;caps\&quot;&gt;FFWD&lt;/span&gt;, Kozzmozz &amp;amp; Defected, La Nuit serves as a key player of the house music and the vibe of the future! La Nuit guest dj&amp;#8217;s: Mr. V, Simon Dunmore, Dj Gregory, Copyright, &amp;#8230; Spreading the future movement of house in Belgium!&lt;/p&gt;\n&lt;p&gt;As a logical next step, Ya&amp;#8217;Mo is busy in the studio, working together with fine producers and musicians, so expect some funky house tracks soon. As a spin-off you can already find Ya&amp;#8217;Mo behind the decks mixing together with live vocals, saxophones, violins and percussion players in his live concept as &amp;#8220;Ya&amp;#8217;Mo and his live elements&amp;#8221;. Next to dj&amp;#8217;ing, Ya&amp;#8217;Mo graduated as a Master in Geography (2003) and is currently combining his music career with his work in Y Graphics (artwork, promo,&amp;#8230;), his events and work for club Decadance (where he is pushing the boundaries in house music to a whole other level) and his projects with La Nuit Events, creating a house scene in his hometown. In the meanwhile he worked part-time for Organised booking agency and for &lt;span class=\&quot;caps\&quot;&gt;NEWS&lt;/span&gt; record distribution. Ya&amp;#8217;Mo is a true ambassador of the Belgian house crowd so let&amp;#8217;s get jazzy! A funky house mix to hear what he&amp;#8217;s doing is always available for download at YaMo.Be&lt;/p&gt;\n&lt;p&gt;His music evolved strongly in his 7 years of mixing: from Afro &amp;amp; Groovy to Techy &amp;amp; Dubby, but it has never lost its roots: Funky and Jacking House music. Influenced by the spirit off time, his music these days can be called Urban House. Influenced by producers as Lance DeSardi, Dj Gregory, Dennis Ferrer, Kerri Chandler, Quentin Harris, Mr. V, Louie Vega &amp;#8230; Favourite labels are Defected, Aroma, Lowdown, Freerange, Buzzin&amp;#8217;Fly, Faya Combo and Ibadan among others.&lt;/p&gt;&quot;);; return false;">Show complete bio</a>
