Antwerp’s Sunday Matinee and the Kontrast crew invite S3A, Makam and Ion Ludwig. Support by Sunday Matinee and Kontrast residents.



S3A (Hold Youth, Sampling As An Art, Lazare Hoche Records), FR

S3A Sampling As An Art is an alias of Max Fader, whose idea is to produce music sifted from his multiple influences. This house project, based on the idea that electronic music is a blend of different cultures and music, started 15 years ago when Max began jaming on analog machines and samplers. It is through this project that he expresses, among other things, his taste for soul and House music. Such as his beloved artists MCDE or Tru’sme, he uses the process of sampling to color his music with sounds of his inspirations, always adding his own touch and groove.


MAKAM (Amulett, Sushitech), NL

Born and raised in The Hague on the Dutch coast, Makam grew up with electronic music. With his family and friends being a constant factor of new musical input, Makam decided to take musical matters into his own hands. A fortunate decision, as he had struck a creative nerve that revealed his raw talent. Emerging himself in music, he mastered the art of music production and found his own unique style.


ION LUDWIG (U-Gold, Trelik, Be Chosen), NL

The first signs of Ion Ludwig as a producer were brought to the world via a release on Butane’s Alphahouse in 2006. Ion however, possesses one of those unique stories of starting at such an early age, he was producing electronic music at the age of 17, having then his first release out at 21. Now, over 10 years on, his name continues to echo the representation of pure quality music, one which also shows that having a background as a musician certainly contributes greatly to such talent, dedication and wide recognition.
Ion Ludwig’s musical influences are very wide and not only have been marked by for instance his early encounters with playing acoustic guitar or African drums but equally, if not more importantly, those acquired by his travels and the exposure to different cultures which contribute as major influences to his work.
