But DJ Houwen is also a very good latin-DJ. Not some boring party with only salsa, but a hot mix of latin music. And last but not least, also in house-music does DJ Houwen finds his way, this under his alias DJ FunkCat.

DJ FunkCat

FunkCat is an alter ego of DJ Houwen. Because of his love for good house music (& cats) and because there's was sometimes confusion what to expect when he was listed in a line-up, he finally created in 2015 this alter ego.

From FunkCat you can expect a focus on good vocal house, funky house, disco house (nu-disco), deephouse & latinhouse, and with his knowledge of the past he's not afraid to throw in some good classics. DJ FunkCat is also manager and co-founder of Houselicious, a small Belgian concept around quality house music. For sure check one of his mixes on Mixcloud.

Short history

Frederik Houwen (° 1978) started his DJ-career back in 1993 at his hometown Roeselare in a populair pub called 'De Vagant'. Soon he was discovered for his DJ-talent and was playing on various parties in Roeselare and surroundings. In the mean time he staid resident of 'De Vagant' for a long period.

Soon he also conquered the rest of Flanders with his fast mixing technique and eclectic choice of music for what he was known about. Not one music style remained untouched and he was well-known for mixing 70/80 music throught house, rock, hip-hop and other styles, something that was not evident formerly (= the time of vinyl and cds).

Next to DJing in the allround circuit, Frederik also had a great passion for electronic music and loved the label Hed Kandi. Soon he also found his way in that world, with a start in the legendary club 'Catacombes' at Roeselare. In the house-scene he was also known as DJ Houwen, it was not until the year 2015 before he created his alter ego FunkCat.

Around 2005 he founded a small company called 'HouwEvents' and he started working with various booking agencies for weddings, private parties and other events. Later on he also became the co-founder and manager of Houselicious en at the end of 2013 he took another new step and founded his webcompany Sitsol. But DJing keeps part of him and until today he's still a wanted DJ on many events, bars, clubs and festivals.
