Dj Sigi, real name Siegfried, has been taking Belgium by storm between 2004 and 2012 with over 900 parties. His electro vinyl sets led him to his finest moment to date when he won the 2005 Diesel:U:Music contest in the category ‘Rock, Pop, Electro’ in Belgium beating red hot favourites Starski&Tonic (aka The Subs) in a very close sprint… Unlike many of his more ‘serious’ colleagues, Sigi likes to bring some humour and extra energy to his dj sets.
After 2012 vinyl disappeared slowly amongst dj’s and so did Dj Sigi, not feeling the urge to play with another format. He started digging vinyl around 1997 and ofcourse he never stopped…
But being over 40 (midlife we presume) he decided in 2022 to launch a new concept in Antwerp called GOOR. And at the same time WAV gave him the opportunity to do a regular show where he shares his love for vinyl.
Dj Sigi’s vocabulary includes: vinyl, bumper stickers, orange wines, Kopenhagen, Tigra and Electro!
