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.

"After some serious pondering, I found five tracks that I'm happy to share in this feature. It's not really an 'Opposite'-selection, as I've played just about everything I like at least once in my sets. People tend me to put me in a box, but I've never though of myself as a house DJ. Or, well, maybe, if you're talking about the ancient definition of house, being just dance music on like  Frankie Knuckles and Ron Hardy played. Scroll down for five tracks you generally wouldn't expect me to play, but which I definitely would if the time is right."

Jacques Brel - Les Bourgeois

"One of my biggest regrets in my musical universe is that I never saw this man perform live. Luckily, there are a lot of recordings... What a performer!"

Mal Waldron - Warm Canto

"Jazz actually is a genre that I still have to start exploring. However, I'm a bit scared to do so, because my vinyl budget will go through the roof!"

Metallica - Battery

"Metallica's first four albums are simply impeccable. I'm usually not a big fan of rock- and metal guitars, but Metallica has such a groove and power... They have that 'je ne sais quoi'."

George Baker - Little Green Bag

"Quentin Tarantino's soundtrack selection his movies is just awesome. And since this track was the titel track for one of his first blg movies (Reservoir Dogs), I decided to go with it. Stealers Wheel (THE torture scene) also was an obvious option, or the track where Uma Thurman and John Travolta are twisting on in Pulp Fiction, or an other song that was immortalized by being featured in a Tarantino movie."

Don Byron and Existential Dred - Alien

"Just like a bunch of other genius tracks, I've learned about this one by the mother of all Mix CD's: Laurent Garnier's Excess Luggage. Required listening for everybody that feels like they belong behind turntables."
