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.

"Most People know me as the dude that brings and promotes Chicago Footwork. But, if I'm honest, I'm just a big fan of rhythms. From funky rhythms to completely abstract and electronic rhythms. Life is my rhythm, and rhythm is my life. Below are some rhythms that always are able to give me a boost and fuel my creativity."

Marc Moulin - Tohu-Bohu

"Marc Moulin is for me - and probably many others - one of the greatest Belgian musicians that ever lived. The rhythms of this track especially are a catalyst for my imagination and creativity."

Dave Pike Set - Mathar

"Learning To Drive is one of the worst movies I've seen in the last 5 years, but there is one thing that I still remember: the crazy soundtrack by The Dave Pike Set. Chaotic and psychedelic rythms all the way."

Akira Ishikawa & Count Buffalo - Pigmy

"This is such a nice, even beautiful combination: Akira Ishikawa, a Japanese drummer, and his East-African (Uganda) Count Buffalo band."

Drexciya - Funk Release Valve

"Might sound weird, but I've discovered this track when I was traveling 6 years ago for a few months through East-Africa. I was sitting in a bar not so far from my guesthouse, founded by people from Sweden. After a couple of brewskies we started a conversation about life, music and more with the bartender. He told me that he was a techno/electro DJ in Sweden about a decade ago. When the bar was empty, he played some tracks and I immediately liked the rhythms of his selection."

Joe - I Wanna Know

"Not a lot of folks might know this, but secretly I’m a big fan of old R&B slow jam rhythms. And nobody is better than Joe. Perfect track for a warm summer night."
