Biography

The Oddword brings raw electronic bass music in a whirlpool of techy beats. After playing 5 years in a row at Tomorrowland, 2 times at TomorrowWorld and now debuting at Tomorrowland Brasil, you can call The Oddword a real citizen of Tomorrow.

This comes to no surprise, as Boy Kortekaas – a.k.a. The Oddword – started playing music at the age of 15. Only a few years later he released his first track on the label of DJ Hell “Gigolo records”. That’s the same label where Tiga and Boys Noize began their career. 

In 2010 his first EP “Kortelas” was released on the American label Crux Records. A lot of remixes followed for artists such as Antention, Dumme Jungs, The Subs, Haezer and other great producers. In 2011 he released his second EP called “The Fire EP” on the German label Mähtrasher records, which was definitely his breakthrough record.

Over the years he played all over the world going from Miami to Berlin to Cape Town and his own little country called Belgium, where he played at the biggest festivals such as Pukkelpop, Laundry Day and of course Tomorrowland.

Last year The Oddword released on Ultra Music, made an official remix of “ATM JAM” by Azealia Banks and got nominated for the MTV EMA’s as Best Belgian Act, together with artists such as Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike and Netsky.
