He carried on with his activities in Holland organising parties or being invited as a dj but he wanted to be a part of the Belgian Salsa Scene and

festivals where fellow dj's were heating up the local dance floors. Cisko clearly had a different way of playing salsa and the crowd liked it. He is often invited to plug his headphones on World's Salsa events, from Brussels to Dubai, Sofia, Bucharest, Paramaribo, Athens, and Amsterdam to name a few locations. About his passion, he said: "...I am not sure I have a "style" as SALSA evolves as music as well as a dance. I learn a lot listening to local and international dj's around the world.  I play salsa for Nowadays Word Citizens… …. because I strongly believe that The Salsa World should inspire the World Leaders today! Imagine that! I must confess, I never plan or think of my sets hours before and I most of the time decide what the next song will be during the last 30 seconds of the current track. My commitment is that if one goes out for a party, he deserves to have fun. Hence once I push on the "play" button, nothing else is more important than focussing on the dancers' and listeners' pleasure, my pleasure.
