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.
NAOKO -「お願いKISS ME AGAIN」
"This is a rather unknown track by the Japanese producer Soichi Terada. He called in the amazing Nami Shimada for the vocals.The track was featured on the City Hunter ’91 soundtrack - a Japanese manga series. Whenever I do a warming up set, this gem always ends up getting played. The 12” is very hard to obtain and I even had to call in a friend of mine in Japan to buy it for me."
Q Lazzarus - Goodbye Horses
"This one hit wonder was featured in the movie Silence Of The Lambs. The 'Buffalo Bill song’ immediately caught my attention and has never left my iPhone ever since. A lot of mysteries surround the band, and especially the whereabouts of the female lead singer."
The Alan Parsons Project - Games People Play
"One of my all time favorite synth-pop songs! The Alan Parsons Project consisted of Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson who did all the songwriting."
PMD - Look At You Now Ft. Erick Sermon
"Before I got into DJ-ing and producing, I was skateboarding 24/7 and listening to a lot of Hip Hop. This still is one of my favorite Hip Hop songs. PMD is the solo project of Parris J. Smith, who did more stuff together with Erick Sermon under EPMD."
Non Phixion - C.I.A. Is Trying to Kill Me
"Another one from my skateboarding heydays. This time by the New York-based Hip Hop group Non Phixion.This track contains a sample from the soundtrack of Calibro 9, a great Italian mafia movie from 1972."
