Belgian Federal Asylum Center “phonecard” Party! Global Vibes From Brussels!

This is really cool. There was this party in Brussels at a (wait for it) federal asylum for people seeking refuge in Belgium. For serious. Syrians, Afghanis, Palestinians, Albanians, Senegalese and more all jammed out on music from their phone. I think this is probably one of the most authentic non-Western parties I’ve ever come in contact with, and I’m delighted this mix is available for people to listen to. There’s a crazy amount of good shit on this mix, and the idea that people all over the world were playing their version of party music for the crowd, who was then understanding, respectful & danced to it, makes me feel like there’s some good in the world. I know some of us need to know that exists these days. You can thank Higgins, because without people like him, there wouldn’t be. (via P.O.E.)
