With Opposites, we show a different - opposite - side of Belgian artists as they let us in their personal bubble and showcase five of their favorite tracks, completely opposite of what they’re known for.

Toquinho & Vinícius de Moraes - Como É Duro Trabalhar

"This track is one of the 1000 my father was (and is still!) listening to at home. He's a huge fan of Brazilian music. I didn't get into this vibe in my early days, but now I'm really understanding and enjoying this music more than never before."

Bill Withers - Hope She'll Be Happier

"Haaaa... Bill. What a voice. This live version is one of the best songs I've ever listened to - ever. And those lyrics... Fun fact: James Blake's Radio Silence was inspired by this track!"

Françoise Hardy - Le temps de l'amour

"When I was a kid, I used to play a cassette-tape every night, right before I went to bed. This track was on one of those. Oh, the memories!"

Caitro Soto - Toro Mata

"Caitro Soto is one of the key figures of the afro-peruvian culture/music, and one of the biggest Cajon player around. As I'm half Peruvian, I couldn't live without all those classic afro-peruvian songs."

Chabuca Granda - La Flor de Canela

"The one and only Chabuca Granda, one of the best voices of South America. ¡Viva Peru carajo!"
