Anton Walgrave has taken some interesting turns in his career. His 2000 debut album 'The Hum' was acclaimed by the press and knowing fans. The CD was recorded in London and produced by Kevin Armstrong, who had already worked with great names like David Bowie, Youssou N'Dour, Morrissey, and more. In 2003 there was ''Before the dawn', a dark, haunting CD perfectly combining strong songwriting and tasteful electronics. The single 'Awake' enjoyed a lot of radio airplay and made it onto several compilations. Flanders' biggest girl group Scala even took it as far as Japan. More than enough good reviews, again and again hearty applause from those in the know. Anton played live, and every time he was convincing. But a real performer always wants to go deeper and wider. Walgrave did what he had to do: write songs, scrap songs, rewrite songs and scrap some more songs. Day in, day out, rain or shine. Week after week, month after month. Lots of songs. And then more work, to make good songs into great songs. The great songs caught the attention of Frank Vander linden. Although he'd won prizes for outstanding production work on De Mens Cds, Vander linden had never dared to produce any one else's work yet. But Walgrave's compositions twisted his arm, his voice gave him shivers and the man's passion was simply contagious.
Born in Heusden, belgium (April 1971), Mauro first received local attention when, after joining several garage- and weddingbands, he formed Evil Superstars, The Love Substitutes (on drums, with Rudy Trouvé, Craig Ward,..) and Mauro & The Grooms. At the moment he plays the guitar in dEUS, Tom Barman's band.
The man behind the name is Kristof Michiels, born in '73, deejaying, producing, and simply active as a musical artist since 1987. His first platform was hiphopmusic, which was of course a much more open style in those days and as a crossbreed included house, funk and whatnot. It all really started for him after the Beasties and Run-DMC came to town in '85... In 1996 he released his first record, "Do you believe in Magick?", under the name of Magik Ballet Ensemble, which, along with its successor "What do you mean", gained him critical acclaim, but the greater succes only came with 't Hof van Commerce, a hiphopgroup rapping in flemish, together with mc's Serge Buyse and Flip Kowlier. They have scored big with 4 albums and a number of singles since then, with sales and succes topping some of the biggest pop/rockbands in Belgium. Around the year 2000 the interest in dancemusic took the upperhand over the hiphop-oriented occupations, with the exception of the activities with 't Hof, of course. This manifested itself in two ways: as a deejay he would choose a more specific direction and personality and he founded Ultrasonic (7), a soulful danceproject featuring vocalists Tom Derie and Nia Saw which scored hugely on a national level with the hit "Lips They Move" in 2003 and a couple of other smaller hit records. The group was 8 strong on stage, with very memorable sets on some of the biggest festivals in Belgium.
Hormonia is thé hottest girl group in the world! These three fashion icons are all from Flanders, Belgium (obviously the center of good taste and class). Shania de Bie, Rani van Dessel and Audrey Verpooten have proven to bring pop music at his best and become role models for every self-respecting person in this cruel, cold world that we live in. With hits like "Sex in de nacht", "Kevin" and "Gij zijt nen John" they are here to stay. They also have produced touching ballads like "Haag&Das" and the song "Hapjes" deals about those lonely moments that we all have. Some people are said to recognize Tine Embrechts, Karlijn Sileghem and Nele Bauwens in this flamboyant trio but it's widely known that this rumour is spread due to their own jealousy and disbelief.
Safi & Pxl zijn 2 jonge en veelbelovende artiesten uit Mechelen. Momenteel werken zij samen aan een aantal projecten. Safi bracht een tijdje terug zijn 2e album : Buckle Up in eigen beheer uit.
Momenteel met "Little Clouds" goed bezig is in De Afrekening op Studio Brussel. De band zal ongetwijfeld een flink aantal nummers voorstellen van het binnen niet al te lange tijd uitkomende nieuwe, 2de album!
