For our Guestlist podcast, Stubru presenter Rik De Bruycker peeps behind the scenes at AB. Topic of discussion with his guest is the legacy of Front 242.
The Electronic Body Music pioneers celebrate their 40th anniversary in AB during a Front 242 two-dayer on July 8 & 9. As the inventors of EBM, they are one of the most influential acts in our Belpop history. Patrick Codenys and Rik De Bruycker talk about musical revolutions, the appeal of the synth, integrity, smoke bombs and the future of Front 242. After all, history repeats itself. So too the dark sounds and heavy beats of the '80s.
During the lockdown, Chibi Ichigo evolved from hip-hop to fierce electro. Producer, frontman of The Subs, and DJ One Track Brain Jeroen De Pessemier is partly responsible for the change in that sound. In Guestlist they chat about a bad first impression, raw energy, and protest music from Russia.
We also question whether techno is over- or underrated with :
- DJ/producer Cellini
- DJ/producer Sara Dziri
- Journalist Ben Van Alboom
This week, the musical tip comes from AB employee Karolien Van Humbeeck (Concert Promotion).
