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.

"The music I listen to and influences me is very personal. I rarely share that with the outside world because that’s just who I am. For me, music is intimacy and therefor a way to connect."

Sven Van Hees - Matras Mambo

"This is the record I have listened the most in my entire life. I have it on vinyl since it came out and I play it at least once every week since then. It calms me, makes me dream and gives me endless inspiration in everything that I do."

Massive Attack - Protection

"Massive Attack’s ‘Protection’ is without a doubt one of the most timeless and futuristic albums I know. It has this incredible nostalgic - and at the same time futuristic - view on music and is produced with so such a deep energy. I am still wondering how they did it. The ensemble of all other artists and singers is just how music should be: bringing people together."

Chicane - Offshore

"A cross-over track of what I refer to as lounge and dance music as we know it. It has Ibiza written all over it."

Rico - My Life (In the Sunshine)

"I Just love how hip hop producers are masters in sampling, even making it an art. Also, the vocal brings an extra touch to the original. Inspiring stuff."

Seba & Lotek — Sonic Winds

"Listening to different genres brings you a good kind of energy and broadens your horizon. This is the kind of music I listened to in the very early years of DJ-ing. I still listen to it at home on vinyl, as the production level of this music is so high that I can only try and match it in what I do today."
