The Glimmer Twins

Mo & Benoelie are now (Sept 2003) called The Glimmer Twins, the name "Mo & Benoelie" was a bit of a problem abroad

The Glimmer Twins are DJs, music freaks, party animals but above all crowd-pleasers par excellence. They have been heavily involved in Belgian nightlife and have captured and spread the vibe of various genres of electronic and dance music since the early 80ies until the present day. One word defines their choice of music and style of mixing: soulful. Their single goal as DJs is to make everybody move, in which they succeed each and every time by bringing a mix of the best popular and contemporary music.
