With his partner David, they added the dynamic abilities Noctis
needed since a while. Thanks Thomas, Noctis has an every
week refreshed agenda. No more outdated parties ... all automated since 2001.
And even more: StudioRVB provides us a server, so Noctis still exists!

Louis de Decker
(html wizard & project manager)
Those are the four names of the wizards who worked for 7 months with Nicolas to rebuild
Noctis for you in 2003. Graphists, programmers, project manager, to give you a better,
faster, crazier Noctis.com and finally get the party you deserve !
She already works for expats-in-belgium related magazines, and is one of the most complete
living encyclopaedia about Ibiza lifestyle and Balearic night-spots. Beeing British and a
clubber often gives a great blend, that's why she helps us to keep Noctis up to date...
for the news of course, and sometimes (yeh, i still need it) for the spelling. Two or
three people looking at that is never too much, heh.
She also has a very business-related job in her daylife... but that's another story. :-)
The A.L. aka Michael
He often writes articles about Hip Hop artists coming in Belgium, or about The Glimmers
touring in Cannes ... but he prefers hiding behind those two mysterious letters: A.L. ...
I just dare to reveal here his first name. Call the press!
About the webmaster:
Nicolas Deckmyn (or Dekmine) is producing radio shows on several
broadcasts since 1984, and writes articles and texts for books since 1993.
At first his radioshows were mostly Jazz and Rock oriented, but in 1989 he created a
programme only talking about nightlife and inviting deejay performances on Radio
Campus Brussels. In 1994 he started the live FM broadcast of Radio
Crystal and created its whole grid, working for a year with the whole belgian
deejay scene & some guests as Stacey Pullen, Armando, Angel Ruiz (Ibiza), Common
Factor, Mike Dunn, ... all over Brussels.
Besides, with a few friends he co-organised 60's Psychedelic Rock & Soul parties named
'Psyclotron' from 1992 to 1997. Back to Radio Campus in 1995, he produced
his weekly nightlife-show until 2001. He recently produced shows and reports for Radio
RMX (2003 & 2004) and RTBf 'La Première' ("Par Ouï
Dire" - 2004).
He currently presents a weekly show about the clubbing in Brussels on BXL radio
(101.4 fm in Brussels, www.bxl.fm) since September 2004.
With the content of those radioshows, he launched in 1994 a party agenda based on BBS
technology (computer to computer, it was before internet really arrived) on the advice of
one of his friends, Daniel, and with his help. Noctis was born that way.
Nicolas wrote hundreds pages of texts and infos about nightlife monthly from 1996 till
2004 for Kiosque magazine, but also for Mine.be (weekly
from 2000 till 2002 ), since 2005 for Brusselslife.be, and sometimes for
special editions of Max monthly magazine (France), Journal du
Mardi, or Out Soon magazine (the Techno mag for Belgium) where
he writes a History of Belgian Clubbing since September 2005.
He also often writes texts and articles for the books and art exhibitions of Marie-Jo
Lafontaine (Babylon Babies, Paradise Experience, Skyline Frankfurt).
He always worked with music and records in his radioshows, and he's a
Sixties-PsycheRock deejay since the 90's in the Psyclotron parties, but he's mixing more
styles since 2002:
Eclectic mix: (chill-trip hop-electro-disco-house-reggae-jazz)
- twice at BMW showroom in Munich (20 July and 13 Sept. 2002)
- at Bernhard Knaus gallery in Mannheim (July 2002)
- 3 nights at Pablo Discobar (2003 & 2004)
Psychedelic Rock mix: (60's Rock & Soul, Hippie tunes)
- Thunderdouf night in Brussels Apr 2005
- Gazon last Saturday August 2005
- Beursschouwburg Febr 2006 (5 hours non stop Psyclotron mix)
Actually, his only discography is this:

Tania "Monad" Derck
She's been mostly correcting my so bad english and translating texts.
But she's been a partner in Out Soon for years in the nineties,
She worked for Jeff Mills as well as for cultural organisations in
Chicago. Mainly, she's still a famous Brussels party character... heh!
Agent for artists, events producer/promoter, he gave me a big help on the
news and communication side. He owns
management. Since he organised Decadance parties in the 80's,
Youri did a looong way in the futuristic nights of Belgium. Partner
in Rave Explosion concept (more than 50 massive parties in the early
nineties, with the biggest names of the world Techno scene), he
managed record labels for several companies (Pias, Elypsia, ...)
before he started his own management office. Always between two
planes to Chicago, Miami or London, he reaches the top worlds
talents to provide it to festivals, clubs, organisers etc...
