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.
"Sue Avenue consists of myself (Pieter Santens) and my buddy Hannes Ledoux. We go back all the way to kindergarten, but only started making music together during our years in uni. Along the years we made a LOT of different stuff (and we still do), but these days, our collaborative efforts are mostly directed towards this project, which can be classified under the broad ‘house music’ denominator. Below we’ve selected some of the tracks we carry along during our musical journey, but have no direct link with Sue Avenue."
MED - Nightlife ft. Noelle (Prod. Madlib)
Pieter: "I still have a lot of hiphop records from back in the days. This one - from the album ‘Push Comes to Shove’ - is one of my favorites. It has that signature raw sound, which stands tall between a lot of hiphop stuff released today."
Henri Texier - Le piroguier
Pieter: "The unique way the vocals resonate with the double bass and other instruments gives this music a very natural and comforting character. Yet it incorporates a lot of rhythmic and melodic freedom. The entire album is timeless."
Air - Moon Safari (Album)
Hannes: "My introduction to electronic music and still one of my favorite albums ever."
Rachmaninov - Piano Concerto no. 3 in D minor Op. 30, Mov. 1
Pieter: "Since I was a little boy I always was intrigued by the piano and classical music in general. I fell in love with this piece from the first time I heard it, and it went along with me through the years."
Sickboy - Take Me On
Hannes: "For me, Breakcore is a reminder that music has no rules, no boundaries. During our high school days, Pieter and me used to go out to rave/breakcore/hardcore parties a lot. Eventually we even had our own acidcore stuff released on wax as Bob Kicks Murphy’s."
