Steve Buscemi is an American actor that you may have already seen in movies like Fargo or in the Broadwalk Empire series. However, Buscemi is also the nickname of one of his biggest fans: Dirk Swartenbroekx.
This Buscemi is a Belgian DJ known worldwide for his groove with multiple and colourful influences. “Dance music with a warm feel” is the way Buscemi describes his own music. But his style remains difficult to define. One could add that his music encourages to dance. From head to toe, in rhythm. Elements of bossa and Brazilian grooves mixed with jazz, afrobeat and drum and bass accents, make the style of Buscemi inimitable.

He is also extremely prolific. After twenty years of career, seven solo-albums, four duo-albums and a dozen compilations of remixes. He also worked on tracks with some important bands and artists such as Hooverphonic, Melanie Gardot and even Calexico.
Loving to perform live sets, Buscemi has already been seen on a number of Belgian and international scenes. From Rock Wechter in Belgium to the Oppokoppi Festival in Pretoria, South Africa, the guy moves as much as his music.
In 2017, he releases his latest album, Late Nite Reworks, Vol. 2, a series of fourteen tracks forming a very varied compilation of remixes. The remix The Traveller of the Belgian musician and composer Michel Bisceglia is the ninth title of the album. The original jazz piece with piano and bass inviting to a special journey is transfigured. With, as always, the indefinable style of Buscemi.
This is not the first time that the talents of Buscemi and Michel Bisceglia cross. In 2009, they released the album “Vertov Luomo Con la Macchina Da Presa” A mix of style, at the crossroads of Bisceglia’s jazz piano and Buscemi’s warm-sounding percussions.
