This weekend, Thierry Berleur passed away. Thierry was the founding father of Le Bonheur, the best music shop in Brussels. He was a man with a heart for good music, art and people, and his adventurous mind inspired a lot of people. Thierry never hesitated to promote local talent and to share his knowledge in a very sweet way. I’m especially grateful for the support i got from him when i still had a radio show on FM Brussels, pointing me in directions i would have never gone by myself. He opened my ears and mind for countless styles of music, and i remember the twinkling in his eyes each time he said:”I told you, i knew you would like it!”.
It’s with great sadness we have to say goodbye to this wonderful and passionate person, really one of a kind. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family and friends.
On Friday night Autechre plays at Ancienne Belgique Brussels and it’s no surprise there had to be a party connected to this evening of wicked electronica. My good friend Sensu and me are invited to play a non-dance floor set, and it’s exactly that what we’re going to do.
Please find us and all the other artists at Bazaar-Brussels, from 11:30 pm until end.
We’ve prepared a mix to give you an idea of what to expect. It’s available for download on my soundcloud page. We dedicate this mix to Thierry Berleur, no better way to pay tribute to this man by presenting music we love….
