Club Versuz – DJ Dave Lambert interview

How did you enter the DJ scene?

It all started for me in 1990 when I played rock music as a DJ in a club called PARADOX.
Years later the club shut down and I started to get more into house music…became resident in SUR PLUS
and BAYSIDE Beachclub. Here I got noticed by the owner of LE BEAU ZOO where I started and stayed 4 years!
LE BEAU ZOO was such a hype in Belgium that when the club was sold I started in Benelux largest venue called ZILLION.
Now I play in Versuz

Which style of music is played in Versuz ? Are there different rooms ?

I like all sorts of music and I always try to give a good refelection of that in my sets.
So in Versuz on Saturdays you can hear me play Groove, Progressive, Trance, Techno and Elektro!
Bart Maes and Tom Leclerq also stay in the same line…so in general you can hear the best groove,
trance, progressive, techno and elektro has to offer!
Versuz has also got 2 other rooms than the mainhall: R vs B Lounge: DJ Sense and MC Peanut bring you the best R’n’B
and Hip Hop! Kaffée Rouge with DJ Jeff V brings the best top 50 hits and groove music.

Versuz

What are in your opinion the strong points of Versuz it has over the competition ?

Well Versuz is a unique concept for a start. Versuz has it’s own sound and style which is real fashionable and trendy.
The club is always crowded and has an atmosphere like nowhere else! Versuz also keeps on trying to innovate and every Saturday our visitors can expect something different
from the week before. Versuz also had all the big DJ’s as their guest!
Previous guests include Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Marco V, David Guetta, Todd Terry, Erick E, Who Da Funk,
Lucien Foort, DJ Gee, MIKE (Push),….
Not a lot of Belgian clubs also had a resident night in IBIZA (Space) and Portugal (Kadoc)….
Then last but not least the sound and light is truly amazing + Versuz has one of the biggest official capacities in EUROPE!
