When the clubs open their doors again, the time has come to prepare ourselves for one of Belgium’s most prevalent celebrations of the electronic music scene: the Red Bull Elektropedia Awards. Like every year, we ask two hosts to glue all the parts together and deliver a smooth ceremony. Over the last few years we have had the absolute pleasure to work with Ben Van Alboom and Marie-France Vodikulwadiki, but the time has come to switch things up. This year we’re proud to present you these two new proper professionals.
The Northern people of Belgium may know Kirsten Lemaire from her work at Studio Brussel, where she hosts ‘Lemaire Luistert’ and ‘Music @ Work’ on a practically daily basis. With tonnes of experience, a friendly attitude and a warm voice, she is the right woman for the job. Appearing alongside Kirsten, you will see Maya Cham, who music fans in Brussels and Wallonia will know for her work at Pure. At this radio station she presents ‘Pure Trax’ (as well as ‘Pure Trax DC Salas’, with – you guessed it – DC Salas) every weekend, focussing on electronic dance music in all its forms and shapes. She’s knowledgeable, enthusiastic and dedicated. A perfect fit!
