And just because Red Bull Elektropedia isn't scared of thinking outside of its own box, here's our office top 10 of other must see acts at this year's Dour Festival.
Black Star (Friday)
Classic late 90s hiphop outfit featuring NYC legends Mos Def and Talib Kweli.
The Rapure (Sunday)
Throughout the years they've became a lot poppier but still manage to blow away any crowd.
Drum machine action, as fast as the speed of light
Combo of Lunice and Hudmo. One of the many highlights at LeFtO's stage!
Still riding high on his last album "Swim" from 2010.
Part band part machine. Forced to change singers but didn't fail to solidify its cult status.
Part band part machine as well. Legendary among many Belgian fans of EBM and industrial.
Charming electrowave from the States.
Another LeFtO guest. Old school funk and synth galore on Stones Throw.
Brixton native and producer of some of the greatest electronic albums of the last couple of years.
